Band: Celestial Bodies
Album: Spit Forth From Chaos
Label: Burning World Records
Availability: Pre-order (click=shop). Ships out 1st week of April 2017.
“In the beginning, there was nothing but the energy of chaos. Absu and Tiamat slept, and dreamed their darkest dreams. And all was good until their dark dreams began to spawn the cosmic gods. Tiamat and Absu were disgusted by these abominations. Their wailing disturbed Tiamat’s and Absu’s sleep. Absu and Tiamat agreed that these worthless abominations must be destroyed…”
With such a premise – a cosmic war between monstrous deities from an ancient, mythological past – it doesn’t come as a surprise that CELESTIAL BODIES’ debut, “Spit Forth From Chaos”, is one of the most intense, hallucinating and mind-shattering sonic experiences ever put on record. A duo based in The Netherlands and comprised of members from Nihill and Dead Neanderthals, CELESTIAL BODIES are exactly the fruit of their unholy union. From Nihill they inherited the pitch-black and noise-drenched sound, as well as a conceptual approach with deep roots in gnosticism and occultism, while from Dead Neanderthals they borrowed the avant-garde sensibility and the free-jazz nature built on improvisation.

More on Estron on The Obelisk:
Dual-guitar riff excavators Slomatics released their fourth full-length, Estron, last year on Burning World Records, and for those who’d worship at an altar of tone, it makes a suitable icon. The Belfast, Northern Ireland, trio roll out sans bass but want nothing for low end, Chris Couzens and David Majury contributing tectonic force on songs like “Tunnel Dragger” and “Lost Punisher” while drummer/vocalist Marty Harvey (also of War Iron) sets the lurch in motion, his voice echoing deep from within the band’s well-honed morass. Songs are spacious but consuming and full, and on the 38-minute offering there’s really only one moment of letup: the two-minute ambient interlude “Red Dawn” that precedes closer “The Carpenter” (also the longest track at 10:26). Beyond that, Slomatics offer few opportunities (some, but few) to let the air back into their listeners’ lungs, and that’s clearly the idea. Estron marked not only their fourth long-player, but also their first decade in the band, Couzens and Majury having started Slomatics in 2004 and Harvey joining in 2011 between their breakout split with Conan (review here) and 2012’s A Hocht full-length, released on Head of Crom. In that decade, and in any case well before they got around to Estron, Couzens and Majury figured out what they wanted from their assault, and Estron bears the fruit of their hammering-out. Though slow-moving, the album is fluid front to back, and it thanks in no small part to Harvey‘s vocals, it has a sense of melody to complement its crushing, nigh-on-claustrophobic tonality.
First live-album by Boston’s Elder, one of USA’s best modern day stoner outfits after two studio albums (Elder and Dead Roots Stirring) and one EP (Spires Burn), and before last album Lore on Stickman.

The day has finally come! The plant informed us that the records will be in in a few weeks so we can start the pre-order of the Dead To A Dying World Live At Roadburn 2016 LP+CD on Roadburn Records/Lay Bare Recordings. We have two versions: 100 copies on gold vinyl and 200 copies on black vinyl. Both are available on the links below, both in Europe as in the US/CA. Copies will be sent out in 3 or 4 weeks from now. Get in on the action now as gone = gone.
The Texas band Dead to a Dying World’s live album is a hybrid of doom, black metal, and crust punk, buttressed by baroque classical flourishes and focused on the state of the world and its rather grim prospects. Its six extended pieces commingle melodrama and momentum, horror and hope, pulling the listener along like a tight-wire suspense flick.
(PS we also started the pre-sale of the repress of the Elder Live At Roadburn LP+CD if you want to pick them up together).
Listen to the record below on Bandcamp:

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.”
- Get your copy in the Burning World Store.
- Listen to the whole set on our Bandcamp-page (where more Roadburn-sets are to be found on “Pay what you want-basis”)
- For the USA/Canada we’d recommend waiting a few weeks when the shipment to Outer Battery has arrived.
