NIHILL Verderf 2LP+cd now available for presale. Free GTT vinyl included!

Posted in 2014, Burning World Records, mailorder, pre-order on November 5th, 2014 by Jurgen Burning World

Nihill VerderfVerderf is Nihill’s 4th studio-album after the trilogy Krach (Monumentum), Grond (Hydrahead), Verdonkermaan (Hydrahead) and As. Undead At Roadburn (Roadburn Records) Nihill is black metal, drone, doom, noise, and even hints at martial industrialism; arriving at something resembling mechanistic dark ambient as much as traditional black metal.

  • The album is available on black, white and gold double vinyl. Get it here.
  • All copies will include a cd with the whole album.
  • All orders that are placed before December 1st will receive a free extra copy of Gnaw Their Tongues – L’Arrivée de la Terne Mort Triomphante LP, another Dutch black metal classic!
  • Orders will be shipped out 1st week of December 2014.
  • Customers from the US and Canada please go to the link below to save on shipping costs: http://www.outerbatteryrecords.com/products/nihill-verderf-2-lp-cd

Nihill is one of the scariest bands I’ve encountered, and their fourth album Verderf is the Dutch outfit’s more abrasive and disturbing effort yet. While the well-connected trio (who share members with Dodecahedron and TeRzij de Horde) ostensibly play black metal, their vision of what that means is an apocalyptic aggregate of drone, industrial, dark ambient, and pure, painful noise layered beneath the ravening tremolo, ungodly roars, and brittle blasts. It even verges on industrialized doom on songs like “Spirituum”, riding a decayed tempo straight to hell. In short, it’s nasty stuff made by unhinged people, who may be perfectly lovely in the flesh but lose all sense of mercy or melody when the spirit of Nihill comes knocking.

CONAN / SLOMATICS split LP reprint now available on 2 colors

Posted in 2014, Burning World Records on October 15th, 2014 by Jurgen Burning World

conan-slomatics-cover2The long sold out split EP by 2 of the greatest stoner / doom bands from across the pond  (well from here on the European mainland that is) is available again after being sold out for a long time on original label Head Of Crom. We are talking about Conan and Slomatics of course.

The album has been repressed on blue and red color vinyl and in a limited amount of 500. If you need your copy please go here.

Head Of Crom described the split at the time as:

CONAN
A three piece of such sluggish might that even the Old Ones themselves are wary. Their debut album ‘Horseback Battle Hammer’ originally sold out on Throne in a very short space of time, confirming the magnetic draw their dense yet beautiful sound has. Conan explore a new-found psychedelic prowess here, yet still retain their trademark tone of impossibly low-end power. These three crushing tracks were recorded by Chris Fielding at Foel Studio, against the backdrop of a bleak gale and a howling storm. Additional vocals were contributed by spacelord Dave Anderson (ex-Hawkind / Amon Duul II), stepping up the psych-factor one notch further.

SLOMATICS
This Belfast-based trio of grandiose riff-runts have been rocking since 2004. Along the way they have amassed two albums, three splits and a slavish cult following. These Hibernian doomhounds are quirky and unlike anyone else, although it has been alleged that they share some genetic material with early Melvins. Beautiful and enticing perhaps, but undoubtedly heavy as hell.

James Plotkin (Khanate, Isis, Earth) was the natural and most brutal choice for mastering duties on both sides of the split and with beautiful artwork by Tony Roberts.

Info:

  • Limited to 500 copies on blue or red vinyl
  • Mastered by James Plotkin
  • Artwork by Tony Roberts

WOLF BLOOD S/T out now, whole album streaming on Bandcamp

Posted in 2014, Burning World Records, Digital, pre-order on October 8th, 2014 by gira1971

Wolf Blood ArtWolf Blood S/T is out now and can be listened to on Bandcamp. The vinyl version will come in later this week and will be shipped to all who have pre-ordered. Pre-orders can still be placed in our online store (for Europe) or in the Outer Battery store (for US/Canada).

If you don’t know Wolf Blood read the quote below from JJ over at The Obelisk:

“Grooves and big riffs abound, but that’s nothing new to the converted, and where Wolf Blood really distinguish themselves is in the oddity of their aggression. Blending clean vocals, spoken parts and screams, they play off both metallic and heavy rock styles and craft something fluid and malevolent from them. There’s a sense of theatricality in side A finale “Dancing on Your Grave,” where much of the album’s second half seems to be more about pummel, but there’s an emerging personality at work across the board, and Wolf Blood emerge after “Procession of the Witch” unscathed by their own strangeness, having tread hard on a couple fine lines between subgenres. Ultimately, Wolf Blood is as satisfying for its brashness as it is for its density of groove.”

NIHILL premiere 1st song of Verderf – Spirituum – on Pitchfork

Posted in 2014, Burning World Records on October 8th, 2014 by gira1971

Nihill VerderfKim Kelly included the first track of Verderf (available on vinyl by the end of November) on her monthly metal column on Pitchfork. Read her comments on the track below.

Nihill is one of the scariest bands I’ve encountered, and their fourth album Verderf is the Dutch outfit’s more abrasive and disturbing effort yet.

Wolf Blood premiere new track Witch, pre-orders for vinyl available

Posted in 2014, Burning World Records on August 27th, 2014 by Jurgen Burning World

Wolf Blood ArtThe Obelisk premiered the first track of the new Wolf Blood album yesterday. The track Witch is taken from the forthcoming self-titled album that will be out on Burning World Records October 1st. Listen to the track on Soundcloud below. Also we have started the pre-orders for this album. For the EU go here, for the US and Canada go here.

This is what The Obelisk said about the album:

The bell of the ride counts out a measure and soon enough the guitar starts in on “Witch,” the opening track from Wolf Blood‘s self-titled debut. Right away, something just seems bent. It’s like the sound is contorted somehow. It’s an otherworldly sensation and it continues throughout the Duluth, Minnesota, four-piece’s six-track offering, which follows through with a loosely cultish approach but is more geared toward general darkness and tonal space than trying to win you over to Team Lucifer. Driven by the riffs of guitarists Mike Messina and Mindy Johnson (the latter also vocals), “Witch” is the slowest of Wolf Blood‘s tracks until its complementary 12-minute closer “Procession of the Witch,” and it also provides one of the album’s signature hooks, so while it may not represent the High on Fire thrashy sensibility of “Exile,” Messina, Johnson, bassist Brian Wells and drummer/vocalist Jake Paulsrude are definitely putting their best foot forward, and they’re swinging it hard right at their audience.

Grooves and big riffs abound, but that’s nothing new to the converted, and where Wolf Blood really distinguish themselves is in the oddity of their aggression. Blending clean vocals, spoken parts and screams, they play off both metallic and heavy rock styles and craft something fluid and malevolent from them. There’s a sense of theatricality in side A finale “Dancing on Your Grave,” where much of the album’s second half seems to be more about pummel, but there’s an emerging personality at work across the board, and Wolf Blood emerge after “Procession of the Witch” unscathed by their own strangeness, having tread hard on a couple fine lines between subgenres. Ultimately, Wolf Blood is as satisfying for its brashness as it is for its density of groove.
