Born Without A Face was a hardcore punk band active from 1983 to 1986. The group had a ferocious guitar-driven sound with metallic influences, though the playing was always too raw to be considered metal. The lyrics were laced with vitriol and nightmare imagery and presented a nihilistic attack on the world's vanities. Formed in Grand Rapids, Michigan, Born Without A Face was Robert Eastway on vocals, Dan Ross on guitar, Mark Dancey on guitar and Eric Dancey on bass, backed by a succession of drummers.
The band's recorded output consisted of two cassette tapes, Psych!(1984) and Freakshow (1985), and two 7" vinyl EPs, The Unbecoming (1986) and Worship (1987), all on the band's own Crucible imprint.
