Heavy BirtH package: Solace Further & A.D., El Thule Green Machine 6LP vinyl

When Walter and me started out with Roadburn Festival as it is known now (around 2005) there were a few other Dutch guys and girls who were doing stuff in our “scene”. One of them was Yob from Heavy BirtH records. He released records by Jersey devils Solace, Italians El Thule and some other bands in the stoner/doom genre. Recently Yob got i touch and asked if I could take over his stock as he is living in China now and he’d rather brew beer than stock records ;-). Especially for those pre-hipster beards, pre- vinyl boom aficionados and other classic doom fans I’ve put together a package of his records for a nice price. For 25 euro + shipping you wil get:

  • Solace – Further 2LP
  • Solace – A.D. 2LP
  • EL Thule – Green Machine 2LP (Green)
  • Solenoid – Solenoid LP

Get the package here. Of course the records can also be bought separately for 10 bucks each.

ROADBURN FESTIVAL flash back: GNOD, Enslaved, Subrosa vinyl

Another edition of Roadburn Festival wrapped up and what a festival it was! We saw and loved so many good bands, to name but a few: Youth Code, Mysticum, Coven, Oranssi Pazuzu, Subrosa (both sets) etc. etc. We met a lot of great people, who luckily for us have great taste and went home with a lot of great records!

Big thanks to Dees from Lay Bare Records and Teun van Irsel helping me out behind the stand.

We’ve also had some conversation about releases from this weekend and I can say things are looking bright. Stay tuned for more news later!

The Midnight Ghost Train is a heavy blues / stoner rock band hailing from Topeka, Kansas. For five solid years The Midnight Ghost Train has been touring relentlessly in both the U.S.A and Europe, spreading their own version of thick Mississippi Delta-rooted style of stoner rock. The band is most well known for their intense, passionate, and soulful live show. No matter where they are or how many people they play to, you will never find TMGT giving anything less than their absolute best.

Now with thousands of shows under their belt, TMGT has released their new record Buffalo on Karate Body Records. Buffalo has been highly reviewed by hundreds of different sources, many of which state that it is “the greatest stoner rock record of 2012″ – Heavy Planet.

Roadburn Records to release ULVER live record on vinyl in 2013

Roadburn Records is proud to present another installment in the Live at Roadburn series. The new year begins heavy with Bongripper Live At Roadburn 2012, and later Conan will follow. But we can safely say that the biggest title we can announce for 2013 is the set legendary Norwegian band Ulver played at Roadburn 2012. They played a special set of 60’s covers from 13th Floor Elevators, The Beau Brummels, Jefferson Airplane, Troggs among others.

As the band says themselves on their website: “Live at Roadburn is also around the corner. Roadburn Records will release a limited edition vinyl in one thousand copies next year, while we will release it digitally from our new webstore – – linked directly to from the app and our webpages.” (And when you are there check out the new Ulver app!)

The release is planned for an spring release. No date is set yet, but keep on checking these pages and we’ll keep you posted!
