Burning World Records is proud to announce that the 6th instalment of the ongoing Ommadon release series will see the light of day on vinyl on April 8th 2016. This release is titles S/T and is a coproduction with Dry Cough Recordings in Manchester and Media Crush Recordings in Toronto. The vinyl will be limited to 300 copies worldwide and artwork was provided by Timo Ketola.
Burning World Records already released Ommadon V on vinyl in 2014. In the meantime the band released an EP on Golden Mantra titled Empathy For The Wicked and I to IV on tape on Tartarus Records.
More info on Ommadon:
Ommadon is self-titled because this is what we set out to be from the beginning. This is not entertainment. This is not easy listening. Ommadon is pure and primitive heaviness. Ommadon is the outcast, the fallen angel, the darkness. Ommadon is the darkness which we are told to fear, to avert our eyes and cower from, to candy coat the suffering, the decay, and the death which give life meaning. Ommadon is the intolerable agony, the paralysing misery, and the stifling alienation, which make us who we are. Ommadon does not submit to the simplification of the horror and the beauty of existence into a world of positivity and negativity where we feel nothing but simulations of what happiness could be like or terror that sadness may disrupt our mass stupor. Ommadon embraces the dark, not as a manufactured rebellion or infantile inversion of stories of good and evil to which we must submit ourselves. Ommadon allows us to reinvent ourselves by destroying what we believe we hold dear but which only slows our steps. Ommadon is for those who know that in fearing death, one fears life, sleepwalking through life, waiting to die. Ommadon is for those who know that only in facing and loving death can you live freely. Ommadon is the world and the world is Ommadon.

Weighing Souls With Sand by Angelic Process was the 2nd release of Roadburn records way back in 2007 (wow has it bee that long? We feel a 10 year anniversary coming up!). The record has gained notoriety over the years as the best thing that has come out of the combined minds of K Angylus and M Dragynfly. All though we like Coma Wearing and other releases from them as well WSWS has always had a special place in our hearts because – well we released it!
The album was also catching crazy money on Ebay and such and we also had a lot of requests for a reissue so we are glad to announce that this will happen after 9 years. The double album (including one vinyl-only track on side D!) will be out in March and pre-orders will go up next week. More info on the release then as the artwork has been slightly altered and a dedication to K Angylus was added.
For those not familiar with the album. This is quote from the Popmatters-review at the time: The variation the pair displays is sublime: we get the drone of Boris, the experimental noise of Swans, the mechanical crunch of Godflesh, the epic scope of Isis, the awe-inspiring power of Neurosis, and the sumptuous beauty of My Bloody Valentine all at once, as the musicians croon and scream, the oblique vocals in the vein of classic shoegaze from the early 1990s. The enveloping effect of the album’s mix is stunning, as the underlying melodies bring genuine warmth, radiating from the massive wall of sound.
Or listen to the album below on Bandcamp.
Burning World Records is proud to present a new label to add to the roster that already includes Roadburn Records and Lay Bare Recordings. Burning Inside Records will focus on the dark ambient music on vinyl and the two first releases can be seen as a statement of intent.
First up will be the Yen Pox album “Between The Horizon and the Abyss” on double vinyl. The album has turned up on lots of end of yearlists for 2015 and we thought it needed a vinyl version to fully experience the depth and darkness of the material. Next to the beautifull artwork that now can be seen in all it’s majestic splendor. The cd-version was released by Malignant Records in the US and the vinyl version will be a split release between Burning Inside Records for Europe and Malignant for the USA.
We can’t agree more with the words that blog The Sound Not the Word penned down on the album: “Whilst it’s undeniably a dark ambient album – full of drones, loops, and sounds that haunt you long after the album has stopped playing – there is an extra, more musical sense to it compared with most other albums of the genre, which gives the album a very strong foundation, and helps keep it interesting and listenable. In a genre filled with releases that often feel interchangeable, Yen Pox have created something with clear character, that is incredibly strong and deserves recognition as not just one of the year’s best records, but as a high watermark for the genre.”
Listen to the first track of the album below on Soundcloud.
Pre-orders will be up next week.
Uzala – Live At Roadburn 2015 LP is now available for pre-order. The album has been pressed on 3 colors; black, brown and white. All are the same price and will be shipped out in 2 weeks. Get your copy on the link below.
This is what JJ over at The Obelisk had to say about the gig and the recordings. “I’ll make no claim toward objectivity when it comes to listening to Uzala’s Live at Roadburn MMXV, but whether it’s as a complement to Tales of Blood and Fire or a precursor to their yet-unannounced next release with the new songs, their Roadburn set is a beast to behold, and if having been there affords me any authority at all on the subject, let it be to say that the live album accurately reflects how it went down on stage. They actually were this crisp and this on-point throughout their time in the Green Room, and at a fest where the impulse to be pulled in (at least) five directions at once, it was the kind of thing you couldn’t help but stand and watch front to back. I’m glad I did, and I’m glad I have Uzala‘s Live at Roadburn MMXV to remember it by.”
- Get your copy in the Burning World Store.
- Listen to the whole set on our Bandcamp-page (where more Roadburn-sets are to be found on “Pay what you want-basis”)
- For the USA/Canada we’d recommend waiting a few weeks when the shipment to Outer Battery has arrived.
After Christmas, in the first week of the new year, we have to do inventory for tax purposes. Never the most fun part of the year but it always helps if we don’t have to count too many items! So to help limit the work we have put up all cd’s as Christmas sale for 3 euro and some vinyl packages for nice prices. Next to that we do not press any cd’s any more in the future so this would make more room for vinyl as well in the years to come.
Which cd’s are 3 euro you ask? Here’s the list:
UPDATE: sold out for now!
We just got the go from the mighty BONGRIPPER that we can put up the pre-order for the Hippie Killer and Miserable (re)presses. They are shipped to us this week and we hope to get them in 2 weeks.
Hippie Killer 2LP: on Carmel & Luna green. Limited to 500 worldwide.

Just in time for the Christmas shopping spree we have gotten some nice vinyl for under the tree. And which records are those you ask, well look below and you will find the answer.
If you want to hear the Sunn – Kannon album streaming in advance please go over to Rolling Stone to stream it in full: “Sunn O))), the Mark Rothkos of void-painting expressionist metal, are returning next month with their first studio album in six years — ending the longest wait between blasts in the band’s 15 year history. Kannon, released on co-leader Greg Anderson’s Southern Lord Records, strips the band down from the baroque orchestral arrangements of 2009’s Monoliths and Dimensions, instead opting for a three-song cycle that Anderson calls “a fairly accurate reflection of … the power of the group live.”
