WOLF BLOOD to release debut album on Burning World this fall

Posted in 2014, Burning World Records, USA on July 7th, 2014 by Jurgen Burning World

Wolf Blood ArtBurning World Records is extremely proud to add another high quality act to the roster. After signing bands like Monomyth, Conan, Slomatics, Nihill and Altar Of Plagues (to name but a few) we can announce that Wolf Blood from Minnesota will join our label with their debut album this fall. The 4-piece band has the songs, the power and the riffs, like Windhand en Goatsnake before them. You can listen to the songs of the album below on Bandcamp in a pre-mixed and mastered version.

“Wolf Blood is indeed that brutal–’brutal’ as in smack-your-face loud rock-n-roll, amps on fire, packed house, broken glass, cops-breaking-up-the-party brutal.” –Homegrown Music Festival Field Guide, 2014

After selling out the entire first cassette-pressing of their debut album in less than a week, Wolf Blood is set to release the vinyl version of the self-titled monster in September, 2014 on Burning World Records. Their tour begins September 28. Check out Wolf-Blood on Facebook for date and venue specifics.

Formed in a dank basement during the infamous 2012 Duluth, Minnesota flood, guitarist Mike Messina and drummer Jake Paulsrud started writing psycho-sludge experiments that sounded too stoned to be metal, and too baneful to be indie-rock. They recruited renown hard-core guitar sorceress Mindy Johnson and magi-roots bassist Brian Wells to flesh-out the menacing sound, and Wolf Blood came to life inside the polar vortex of 2013/14 with highly acclaimed performances in Duluth and Minneapolis. And this fall, after the hottest summer in recorded history, the resulting entrée finds a new home on vinyl.

This seven-song recording opens with they haunting single Witch. From there…you’re on your own for the next 35 feral, blood stained minutes.

For fans of: Windhand, Goatsnake, Eyehategod

OMMADON return with V on double vinyl on Burning World Records

Posted in 2014, Burning World Records, pre-order on July 3rd, 2014 by Jurgen Burning World

Ommadon VOmmadon
V
Dry Cough/Burning World/Domestic Genocide
4 August 2014

FFO: Thou, The Body, Coltsblood, Eagle Twin, Conan, Sunn O)))

OMMADON aim to achieve sonic annihilation of the self in their perpetual quest for heaviness.

The fifth effort from the duo, both ex-members of Snowblood, continues in their quest to produce raw, heavy doom, recorded live by themselves in the forest in the highlands. It’s all live, with no overdubs and no bullshit.

The pair’s strain of drone-doom is an all encompassing wall of sound; it’s rawness creating a truly unsettling and downright claustrophobic atmosphere, enough to drain you of your spirit and tarnish your soul.

V was played and recorded live by Ommadon on The Hill Of Maud in the Scottish Highlands over the winter of 2012/13 and it was mastered by Billy Anderson (Eyehategod, Sleep, High On Fire).

V will be released on 180g double gatefold vinyl, limited to 300 copies, by three of the globe’s best underground labels. It’ll be a co-release between DRY COUGH RECORDS in the UK, BURNING WORLD RECORDS in The Netherlands and DOMESTIC GENOCIDE RECORDS in the USA.

MY BROTHER THE WIND live at Roadburn available for download and vinyl

Posted in 2014, pre-order, Roadburn Records on June 30th, 2014 by Jurgen Burning World

My Brother The Wind Roadburn webRoadburn Records is proud to announce the next installment in our ongoing Live At Roadburn-series. This time the gig My Brother The Wind played at Roadburn 2013 is available for free download at Bandcamp and for pre-order on double (but 3-sided!) vinyl.

Who is this My Brother The Wind you talk about you say, well… Led by Anekdoten‘s Nicklas Barker, the chemistry between Barker, Mathias Danielsson (guitars), Ronny Eriksson (bass) and Tomas Eriksson (drums) is really something special, as captured on their latest album, I Wash My Soul in the Stream of Infinity , recorded in only 4 hours during a cold Swedish winter’s night in 2011.

With the focus less on guitar solos and more on group virtuosity, the instrumentation is altered to create interesting and intricately layered rock soundscapes, seemingly influenced by King Crimson, Amon Düül II and Sweden’s seminal prog-pioneers, Träd, Gräs och Stenar. This particular influences serve in distinguishing My Brother The Wind‘s instrumental odysseys from the current crop of European jam-bands.

My Brother The Wind takes the best elements of improvised kraut and prog-rock, and once the spaceship has escaped the pull of Earth’s gravity, they drift into magnificent droning space rock and psychedelic orbits.

Listen to the mixed and mastered version below on Bandcamp. If you like you can download it for free, or if you can you can donate some to the label and the band. For those who like their music on a physical format: we have a 2-Lp package for pre-sale in either black, white or gold vinyl. All version have a cd with the gig included. If needed (bad) go here to our online store.

EARTHLESS meets HEAVY BLANKET (J. MASCIS) live at Roadburn 2LP

Posted in 2014, mailorder, pre-order, Roadburn Records on June 4th, 2014 by Jurgen Burning World

Earthless meets Heavy Blanket in a Dutch hazeEARTHLESS Meets HEAVY BLANKET “In A Dutch Haze” to be Released July 8.

Titanic Team-Up Featuring Psych Rock’s Heaviest Hitters Takes Physical Form!

Monstrous Mash-Up From Members of Dinosaur Jr., Lecherous Gaze, OFF!, Rocket From the Crypt, Sweet Apple, Witch and More Delivers Whiz-Bang Wallop the Likes of Which the World Has Never Heard Before!!!

This July, a colossal collaborative concert, previously privy only to those who were fortunate enough to have helped fill a Netherlandic concert hall multiple moons ago, will be unleashed in awesome audio form as EARTHLESS Meets HEAVY BLANKET In A Dutch Haze. The out-of-this-world recording will see a July 8 release date via Outer Battery Records / Roadburn Records.

Back-story: an impromptu heavy psych JAM between J Mascis (DINOSAUR JR, SWEET APPLE, WITCH and one of both Rolling Stone and SPIN’s “Greatest Guitarists of All Time”) and California space rock masters EARTHLESS at the 2009 SXSW Festival left an onlooking crowd stunned and breathless. When word of the performance spread, the world-renowned musicians were asked to play the main stage of Holland’s annual international rock festival, Roadburn, to attempt to recreate the magic that revved-up an Austin audience at what was thought to be a one-time event.

Fast forward to the 2012 installment of the fantastic fest; when EARTHLESS’ guitarist Isaiah Mitchell had to back out at the last minute due to unforeseen circumstance, six-string shredder Graham Clise from J Mascis’ loud, psychedelic project HEAVY BLANKET (and who also plays with Mascis in WITCH and in the bitchin’ Bay Area band LECHEROUS GAZE) stepped in on second guitar. Backed by the best rhythm section in today’s adventurous rock world — Mario Rubalcaba and Mike Eginton from EARTHLESS — the quartet stormed the stage for what would become an incredible one-time happening, leading to almost a full hour of some of the most mind-bending heavy psych imaginable. The epic jam session gave birth to shredding psychedelia and hard rock blues underpinned by the muscular rhythmic sensibilities of kraut-rock and the unbridled energy of 70′s guitar rock. The formidable foundation laid by drummer Rubalcaba became a jumping off point for Mascis, Clise and Eighton to explore their inner cosmoi for consciousness-expanding riffs and music-induced psychedelic experiences.

Track listing:

1.) Paradise in a Purple Sky (58:34)

Now, the rest of the planet can ready their receivers and hoist headphones on high as the full live set from that magical evening in Tilburg is set to be unleashed upon an unsuspecting world! Far-out, gatefold-spanning artwork by San Francisco tattoo artist and designer Tim Lehi (High on Fire, Black Anvil, Xasthur) perfectly animates this incredible audio adventure, while matchless mastering by Carl Saff (Boris, Guided By Voices), pushes this priceless performance over-the-top. Flame retardant clothing is highly recommended!

EARTHLESS Meets HEAVY BLANKET In A Dutch Haze is available for pre-order purchase now at this location. The initial LP pressing takes the form of a special, 2xLP on green vinyl, limited to 300 copies, only available at Burning World Records. Collectors, don’t delay!

Burning World Records to release vinyl repress of Monnos by CONAN

Posted in 2014, Burning World Records, mailorder, pre-order on June 2nd, 2014 by Jurgen Burning World

Conan-Monnos-Artwork At the time of release 2 years ago Pitchfork by way of Kim Kelly described the album as follows:

‘To strip the flesh from the bones is to find a band bent on replicating and revering the heavy sounds that came before them. To label them “stoner doom” does them a disservice. At their core, Conan are a doom band with repetitive song structures, and windswept clean vocals; the devil, however, is in the details, and the extra layers of effects and mechanical wizardry they heap upon their pure-hearted compositions elevate them to the next level. Monnos is their most solid, well-developed, and impressive effort yet, and those who walk the doomed path would do well to join their ranks.’

The vinyl of this album has been out of print for quite some time and we (the band and us) decided it was time for a repress! On green vinyl this time. Get in on the action here.

If you forgot how the album sounded please check out Bandcamp below.

Terrorizer Streams SEIROM’s ‘And The Light Swallowed Everything’ In Its Entirety

Posted in 2014, Burning World Records, Digital, pre-order on April 30th, 2014 by Jurgen Burning World

43212526237_klein We could not agree more with the words José Carlos Santos penned about the newst release on Burning World Records (out in 2 days but available to order on the link below!) down over at Terrorizer.com.

Have you ever wondered what Gnaw Their Tongues mainman Mories does when he’s not producing bile infested, soul destroying black noise of the highest calibre? Well, it turns out he also crafts some of the most powerful, emotionally affecting ambience we’ve ever heard under the name Seirom. He’s just released a brand new album entitled ‘And The Light Swallowed Everything’, and Terrorizer is proud to present an exclusive stream of the record in its entirety…

Most of us who were drawn to Mories’ musical output in any of his many projects are part of that group of people who actually enjoy sonic torture and actively search for the most unpleasant, confrontational or just downright ugly music possible. From the torture chamber of the Dutchman’s most known project, Gnaw Their Tongues, to Cloak Of Altering, De Magia Veterum or Aderlating, among others, there’s always been an underlying nastiness to the man’s work that keeps the musical sadist/masochist/both within us fully satisfied.

Though a few of Gnaw Their Tongues’ less openly abrasive latest works (‘L’Arrivée De La Terne Mort Triomphante’ particularly) might have hinted that something completely different might be brewing in the man’s mind, nothing really could have prepared us for Seirom. Regardless what release you discovered this project with, whether on one of the earlier short EPs, first proper album ‘1973’ in 2012 or just now with this new full-length, the shock is essentially the same.

First of all – yes, it’s all beautiful. It’s all outrageously beautiful, hauntingly, harrowingly, luminously beautiful. The sounds created by Seirom are expansive and inspiring enough to warrant a petition to have them as the official soundtrack to the new ‘Cosmos’ series, but that’s not the biggest shock. What hits you the most is the moment where you realize that Mories (you’ve noticed the reversal of his name for this, right?) is essentially doing the very same thing he’s done in Gnaw Their Tongues. The samples, the electronics, the guitar effects, the overpowering fullness of the sound, the tools are all exactly the same, except used in a completely different way for completely different effects. It’s like a reformed torturer suddenly started using his iron maiden to store ice cream.

Though there’s been already a few Seirom releases, ‘And The Light Swallowed Everything’ really is the epitome of the project so far. The title really says it all regarding what you can expect. Do you know when death or near-death experiences are sometimes portrayed in the movies from the perspective of the dying, when there’s a huge flash of white light that fills the whole screen? This album is a sort of sonic equivalent to a still frame of that exact moment. For 47 whole minutes. And it still doesn’t feel like it’s enough.

NIHILL to release new album Verderf on Burning World, artwork revealed

Posted in 2014, Burning World Records on April 29th, 2014 by Jurgen Burning World

Burning World is proud to present a new addition to our roster in the form of Verderf by our fellow Dutch country men Nihill. It’s a renewed bond, already forced by the release in 2013 of the casette As: Undead At Roadburn 2013.

Nihill VerderfNihill makes a perfect fit with Burning World for 2 reasons:

  • In the past Burning World  already released records by modern day black metal luminairies as Wolves In The Throne Room, Altar Of Plagues, Winterfylleth and Vattnet Viskar. We consider Nihill as one of the modern day orginal black metal bands that try to push the genre further into ice cold territory. Think Deathspell Omega, Teitanblood, Blut Aus Nord.
  • Nihill is a Dutch band and in the last year we released records by Monomyth, Atlantis and Seirom (just out!). We think these are 3 of the best Dutch albums released in the last 12 months and we are sure Verderf will make that number 4!

Verderf will be released on double vinyl, cd, cassette and digital later this summer.

More info on Nihill:

“Holland’s Nihill are one of the few bands in current circulation to which some of black metal’s most common musical descriptors actually apply. Theirs is music of a truly relentless, cold and unforgiving nature, one which offers little or nothing in the way of relief or comforting melody. Though their albums are often punctuated by stretches of near silence or hushed ambience set between walls of frenzied blast and pummeling churn, these lulls serve to bolster the threatening whole in their absence of recognizable musical footholds. The winding paths laid by their music may be lightless, but the journey down them is one well worth taking.”

Listen to their last album Verdonkermaan on Bandcamp:

Nihill Discography

  • Krach (2007, Monumentum)
  • Grond (2009, Hydrahead)
  • Verdonkemaan (2012, Hydrahead)
  • As. Undead At Roadburn 2013 (2013, Roadburn Records)
