Burning World to release GENA Slow Day digitally now. Vinyl in september.

Burning World records is proud to present a new release looming large on the horizon. Slow Day from doomgazers Gena from Russia will be released digitally today and on limited edition vinyl in September 2018.

Don’t know what doomgaze is? We did not either till we read the article below in Arctic Drones in which next to Gena The Angelic Process, Planning for A burial and Jesu are also  featured. Here’s their definition of doomgaze:

Doomgaze is a crossover subgenre fusing deliberately paced, heavy and repetitive doom drones and mellower shoegaze layers. The style is typically defined by a heavy emphasis on atmosphere and an extensive use of reverb, distortion and feedback.

They describe Gena as follows:

No one can question the power that Gena capture on their recordings, and the first song on their 2015 album Slow Day attests to that. “Past” is perhaps one of the best intro songs in this genre, and it’s undeniable grandiosity will lock you in for the rest of the album. True to the name, the songs keep to slow tempos while doom-filled guitars crash against the droning undertones. While some lean toward instrumental bands in this realm of music, the vocals Gena present fit the aesthetic perfectly.

Each song is a new concept, giving forth new ideas and various genre blends like post-metal and shoegaze while keeping the overall vibe of doom and gloom. This album should be a go-to for people looking to experience more in this realm of music, especially as it represents the genre well whilst simultaneously distinguishing its own distinct “Gena” sound. 

Tracklist:

  1. Past
  2. Light
  3. I Was Born Again Tonight (Feat. Santa Yaronis, Brigitte Bardo )
  4. Water
  5. Evil
  6. Earth (Feat. Helgi Ingvarsson, Garlic Kings)

SLOMATICS A Hocht on red vinyl now available for pre-sale

You could say we are on a Slomatics roll here. After releasing A Hocht, Estron and the Conan split on cd in the past, last year we did a vinyl repress of Estron (originally on Head Of Crom) and gave their live set at Roadburn 2017 a vinyl rendition. And we are not done.

Next up is a vinyl repress of their 2012 masterpiece A Hocht (can you say Return To Kraken or Tramontane? Both futured on the Futurians Live At Roadburn release). Also originally on Head Of Crom. This version is on blood red vinyl and comes in a limited edition of 300.

We’ve also priced the Futurians record a bit lower so you can pick them up together for a good price. And Black Bow will send us some of the Slomatics / Mammoth Weed Wizard Bastard on both colors so you can get those in one go as well.

More pictures of the record after the break.

SUBROSA & SALEM’S POT Live At Roadburn vinyl now available for pre-sale

Roadburn Records is proud to (finally!!!) present two vinyl versions of releases that were only available on cd and digital. First up is Subrosa’s beautiful Subdued set at last years Roadburn Festival. The set was described by JJ Kocsan at The Obelisk as: “It is a reminder of the power a live performance can have and, again, as rich an experience as I’ve ever had in that regard.” The album is available on gold, white and black vinyl of which the gold one is traditionally the most limited: only 100 copies of those.

  • Pre-order Subrosa Subdued Live At Roadburn 2017 on gold, white or black vinyl or on cd  here

Also Salem’s Pot 2015 set at the famous festival in Tilburg is now available for pre-order. We used the same set up as for the Subrosa album, it is available on gold (100), white and black vinyl.

The first ever live album by Salem’s Pot, recorded during the 2015 edition of the prestigious Roadburn Festival in Tilburg, the Netherlands. With this release Salem’s Pot will destroy your mind. The band offers the same kind of winking tease employed by those low budget horror films of the ’70s and ’80s, which essentially dared audiences to experience what they knew they wanted, but couldn’t possibly expect.

Pre-order Salem’s Pot Live At Roadburn 2015 on gold, white or black vinyl here.

Also available for reduced prices are other Live At Roadburn albums like those of Uzala, Dead To A Dying World, GNOD, Slomatics.

John Barleycorn Reborn: Dark Britannica 4LP box set now available for pre-order

A discovery of folk music from dark Britannica. ‘John Barleycorn Reborn’ explores seasonal birth, death and rebirth on this 4LP. Originally released in 2007 on 2CD by Cold Spring and now in a 4Lp box with extensive booklet on Burning World Records in December 2017.

This compilation explores the darker side of British folk music, evoking the mystery of our ancient past and peoples, the strangeness of their beliefs, arcane traditions and the remnants of this carried down the centuries as folklore. The set has an extended booklet with articles, essays and explorations of the album’s concept.

The album was compiled as a co operation between Cold Spring and Woven Wheat Whispers. Curated by Mark Coyle.

  • Copies will be shipped out late 2017 or 1st week of 2018.

SUBROSA premiere 1st track from Subdued Live At Roadburn on The Obelisk

JJ over at The Obelisk is premiering the first track of the Subrosa Subdued Live At Roadburn 2017: The Mirror. The album will be released on cd and digital and will be out on vinyl in March 2017.

In terms of the arrangement, “The Mirror” was as minimal as SubRosa got: voice, drumsticks against microphone stands and a single floor tom for percussion, and that’s it. The violins, flutes, bass, acoustic and electric guitar, and samples/other noises that filled out other inclusions were set aside. Rebecca Vernon led Sarah Pendleton and Kim Pack in harmony as she and drummer Andy Patterson — situated behind a front-line of players that also included bassist Levi Hanna and guest flutist/vocalist Kelly Schilling — kept time together in that seemingly simple fashion. It was beautiful and affecting in kind.

I’ll admit I wasn’t familiar with “The Mirror” before seeing it performed at Het Patronaat this past April. It comes from SubRosa‘s 2006 demo/EP The Worm has Turned and to my knowledge hasn’t featured on any subsequent release. This would seem to make its inclusion on SubDued: Live at Roadburn 2017 all the more special, since it’s a standout and something kind of exclusive to this form, this time, and this moment for the band. It certainly felt that way when they were playing it, and as I watched and listened, I became utterly entranced in the melody and the storytelling in a way that hasn’t left my mind in the half-year since. I feel fortunate for having been there to witness it and know that, in fact, I was.

DEAD NEANDERTHALS Womb Of God LP available now

Dead Neanderthals Womb Of God sleeve

Burning World is proud to present our new release: Dead Neanderthals Womb Of God. Womb Of God is the rancid culmination of everything Dead Neanderthals: heavy droning baritone saxophone, repetitive steam machine-like drum patterns and acid-spewing woodwind banshee shrieks.

Their brand of hellish and metallic noise rock comes closer to the bleak noise of The Body than to what you’d expect from a saxophone-band.

  • Womb Of God is the band’s 4th, and last, full-length album in 2017.
  • It’s available on black (200) and white (100) vinyl here.
  • Listen to the full album below on Bandcamp:

Otto and René recorded themselves in the rehearsal space, Nijmegen.

Burning World presents the Acteon-label: Forest of Tygers

In the US they are starting to built a name for themselves: the Acteon label and the main band on the roster: Forest Of Tygers. Noisey called the split with Anocon the “Peak American Black Metal Fury”.

“Forest Of Tygers, who have yet to release a full-length record yet have produced some defiantly heavy music in the few short years they’ve been creating together. “Mongers” takes a less traditional route through black metal, and instead incorporates hardcore elements into Jim Valosik’s angst-ridden screams and punkier drum beats from Rachel Valosik. The guitars follow simpler structure, and again come laced with blackened hardcore vibrations that only add to the desolation found within the song and its bitter course. “Mongers” is a scorching track that is never one thing more than another; sludge, caustic hardcore and blackened foundations all vie for space but it’s wonderfully cohesive despite the swirling chaos Forest Of Tygers present here. It’s truly a thrill.”

Listen to the tracks of the split below and order the 2 7″s and cd they released over here.

Roadburn Records to release GODFLESH Streetcleaner Live At Roadburn 2011 on cd

Birmingham’s seminal post-punk/industrial behemoths GODFLESH performed their seminal debut full-length album, 1989’s “Streetcleaner”, in its entirety at the 2011 edition of the Roadburn festival on Thursday, April 14 at the 013 venue in Tilburg, Holland. In addition, founding members Justin Broadrick and Benny Green played the “Tiny Tears” EP, which was conceived as part of the overall “Streetcleaner” vision, in full as well.

Decibel magazine: The debut full-length from industrial mastermind Godflesh is suffocating as a live recording. Rumbling bass, squealing guitars and strong vocals bring Streetcleaner to life in a different way than on the studio album, but it works to Godflesh’s benefit. The songs are more dissonant and, at times, cacophonous, a powerful incarnation of the record more than 20 years after its release.
