Roadburn Records is proud to present: Elder Live At Roadburn 2013 on both vinyl, cd and digital. For those we weren’t there check what JJ Koczan, connaisseur of all things rock and psychedelic, over at The Obelisk had to say about the experience of catching Elder live:
‘What a fucking blast. Seriously. That’s what it says in my notes: “What a fucking blast.” It’s a direct quote. Probably the best thing I can compare it to is when Black Pyramid played the Afterburner in 2011 and were given such a warm reception, but this was bigger, both in room size and in that reception itself. People were lined up out the door and down the alley to see Elder‘s Roadburn debut, and the crowd was cheering before they even started the first song. They waved and people cheered. It was a lot of fun to see, and as it was the 10th show on their 15-date European run with Pet the Preacher, they also handed the place its collective ass. Both cuts from the Spires Burn/Release EP were included, as well as “Dead Roots Stirring” and a host of others, and for the umpteenth time in the last couple days, I felt lucky to be there. I know for a lot of people, this was the first time they’re getting to see them live, but even for the several times I have, this one was something special.’
- Live At Roadburn 2013 captures the set in all it’s glory. Listen to it on below on Bandcamp and if you like download it, it’s “Pay what you want” so even free!
- If you need the set on cd or vinyl please go here but beware we will not be able to send out the vinyl or cd before Feb. 1st 2014.
Our friend JJ. Koczan over at The Obelisk was one of the first to get the new Atlantis record Omens, that is released on LP+CD and CD next week. This is what he had to say about the album:
“Omens, their third mostly-instrumental full-length — there are also two EPs, most recently 2012′s La Petite Mort — on Oct. 14 through Burning World Records, crafting a sonic blend of post-metal, progressive electronica and a sense of tonal weight, resulting in six varied and textured tracks that truly seem to be the output of a clear vision for what the sound should be. Whether it’s the initial ambience of “Rapture” or the patient building of tension that leads to the slow-paced crush of “Widowmaker,” both of Omens‘ vinyl sides produce a rich, immersive feel that’s easy to get lost within.
There are stretches that come across as comparatively minimal, but Omens is never really still, and whether it’s a swirl of synth on backing the emergent shouts on “And She Drops the 7th Veil” or the noisy, chaotic patterning of the side B intro “The Path Into” — that path, incidentally, goes into “Widowmaker” — Atlantis always keep a sense of forward motion despite the changing sphere of each given track and the mood that each piece of the 50-minute offering makes so malleable throughout. As both the first instance of the weighted riffing that comes to the fore periodically and the album’s initial thrust,”Raptor” does a significant amount of work in establishing the atmospheric basis from which the rest of the songs work. It has both parcel fluctuations and an overarching linear build, and pays off in grand style only made more affecting by the drawn out keyboard melodies that top.”

Roadburn Records is proud to announce the third show from Roadburn 2012 to make it to an official release. After Chelsea Wolfe and Bongripper, the mighty Conan gets the Live At Roadburn treatment. The gig the British threesome did in Stage 1 was massive and left many a spectator standing with their mouths open and their ears closed. The band calls the album: Mount Wrath – Live At Roadburn.
But who can say it better than our good friend Adam Stone from Head of Crom Records who said it like this in his Roadburn Festival 2012 review for The Sleeping Shaman:
‘The band were in obviously ebullient form, stoked at playing this legendary festival and also being asked to join Sleep in Oslo, as selections from the new and monstrous ‘Monnos’ were intermingled with the huge and bulldozing force of classics like ‘Krull’ and ‘Older Than Earth’. Jon’s instantly likeable faraway vocals have never sounded more realised to these ears, and the audience were massively appreciative of Conan’s true wallop as the Stonehenge of amps that framed the band belched out universe-sized slices of ultra low-end hostility. A special mention too for Paul O’Neil’s expert drumming which represents the kind of versatility and intelligence that one would not usually expect with this most primal of genres, truly adding colour to the palette. By the end of the set I had cunningly worked my way into the centre of the room and believe me I was not regretful of the deoxygenated crush of Stage 01 – Conan had finally arrived on the international stage like the great wrecking ball that they have always been and I needed to be there to witness their special Roadburn moment. I toast thee lads – you are truly monolithic. ‘
The live recordings were mixed and mastered again by James Plotkin in New York just like he did for the Monnos album.
Artwork was once again in the hands of the master Tony Robert. Click below for a bigger version of the artwork:
The album will be released digitally first at February 1st, the cd will be out one month later (accompagnied bij a secret release party somewhere… ) and the vinyl version will be out April 1st. In time for the Conan tour with the mighty Bongripper.
Till then you can listen to the set at the 3VOOR12 network:
Why not start the new year in the spirit of sharing, we at the Burning World Headquarters thought. So from now on all ‘Live At Roadburn’ albums that we have the digital rights to will be free. Digitally that is. CD’s and vinyl still have to be bought 😉
So this is your chance to listen back to gigs by: Wolves In The Throne Room, Yob, White Hills, Bong, Wino among other. Put them on your iPod, burn em on a disc for your car, delete them if you don’t like them. It’s all fine with us.
The more people listen to the music we put out, the more we like it. So get over to the Burning World Bandcamp page and download or listen away.
There is only minor one catch: if you pay nothing (which is fine by us) you’ll have to leave your mailaddress. We promise we will only mail you one with a big unsubscribe button in there so no harm done. Or maybe you’ll like to keep updated once a month on what’s going on at Roadburn Records and Burning World Records.
