“Nijmegen duo Dead Neanderthals levelled the audience in a way harsher than most “extreme” metal bands would be able to do. Imagine a rather noisy free jazz sax solo with a drummer playing an excruciatingly relentless fill behind it. Now stretch it for about forty-five minutes of non-stop head pounding and along which you start to recognize how well kept the whole pace is.”
We at Burning World Records have been a fan of Subrosa for many years. And when we saw them live on Roadburn Festival 2015 we were blown away. A live album was in the works but sadly the recordings had a glitch so we couldnt use them. But who knows what isin the future!

Listen to the track Killer Rapture on Soundcloud below:
As Terrorizer says:
“In a constant emotional whirlwind, Sarah Pendleton and Kim Pack’s violins come across as an unpredictable, labyrinthine driving force, while the luxurious rhythm section of Levi Hanna and Andy Patterson (the drumming latter also deserving accolades for his terrific engineering and mixing job – this music needs to sound huge to really work, and it does) lay down the amount of foundation necessary for each part, from crushing doom grooves to a gentle accompanying rumble.” – Jose Carlos Santos
Yawning Man is a unique and influential band from the Southern California desert has left their mark on bands such as Kyuss and Queens of the Stone Age, making them one of the defining forces in the desert rock scene for over 20 years both in the U.S. and in Europe.
Historical Graffity by Yawning Man is now available on black and green splatter vinyl in our online store.
Pinning Yawning Man to a specific genra is difficult, letting the music speaks for itself has fans from all over the rock,indy,psyche and alternative spectrum are discovering the passion and dark beauty in Yawning Man’s music. Throughout the instrumental cinamatic rock landscapes of Yawning Man, the post-Ventures, haunting melodies & composition of guitarist Gary Arce are constantly being stretched, up-ended and sent deep into dark Joy Division territory, by the weird chords and heavy bass grooves of Mario Lalli and drummer Bill Stinson.
The result is the kind of brooding and thunderous atmosphere that draws you constantly inward. In this very special recording session done during the bands 2015 South American tour while in Buenos Aires, Agentina. The band was invited to record for one evening at the world famous and legendary ION Studios.The session featured guest apperences by Argentininian tango musicians Sara Ryan on violin and Adolfo Trepiana on bandoneon accordion as well as Malene Arce (wife of Gary Arce) on the Mellotron.
An Argentinian newspaper once wrote that the “condensed history of the nations music“ was to be found behind Ion’s doors, and they were spot-on with this description. Some of the country’s brightest musical legends, such as Astor Piazzolla, have reacted like ions with other musicians, and the energy that was released during this process condensed in the form of numerous classic records.. As the largest and most legendary sound studio in Buenos Aires, Ion remains one of the most remarkable recording venues in the world. It’s energy is evident in the spontaneous edgy beauty created by the band in this collaboration of special artists in a very special place.
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.
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.

Today is the day. The Angelic Process album Weighing Souls With Sand is finally available again on double vinyl since 2008! Mories de Jong of Gnaw Their Tongues/Seirom fame did an update of the artwork (click for bigger).
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.
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.
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.”
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.
