Slomatics will release Futurians: Live At Roadburn on vinyl and digital this october on Roadburn Records.
JJ Koczan from the Obelisk about the Slomatics gig at Roadburn 2017 captured on this release: “The most pummeling tones I’ve heard over the course of the last three days. “Electric Breath,” “Return to Kraken,” “And Yet it Moves,” “Supernothing” — this is the stuff of lumbering, rolling, molten doom supremacy, and as they’re five records deep into a tenure that one hopes continues into perpetuity”
The band commented on their performance on the legendary festival beforehand:
“To say we’re excited about playing Roadburn would be an understatement,” says guitarist David Majury. “It’s funny how something like a music festival can take on almost mythical proportions, but if any festival has done so it’s definitely Roadburn! We’ve had an association with the festival through our records being on Burning World Records, so it feels good to be finally hauling our fuzz pedals over to Tilburg.”
With Majury and Chris Couzens on guitar and drummer / vocalist Marty Harvey also handling synth, Slomatics defy logic with their sheer amount of low-end output. As the follow-up to 2014’s Estron and 2012’s A Hocht, Future Echo Returns (2016) was the third in a trilogy of albums, rounding out an extended story that the band purposefully leaves open for interpretation.
“I’m delighted we’ll be joining the 2017 edition of Roadburn,” echoes Couzens. “We’ve seen some incredible performances in Tilburg over the years and been blown away how the locals embrace the hordes of music fans that descend on them. It’ll be fantastic to join that special atmosphere as a performer in April!”
«Roadburn Live» is Enslaved’s first official live album, a split release between Roadburn Records and By Norse Music. The album was recorded during one of band’s headline shows at the renowned Roadburn Festival 2015; an edition curated by Enslaved’s guitar player Ivar Bjørnson.
Walter Hoeijmakers / Roadburn’s Artistic Director comments on the release: “It’s no secret that there’s a strong friendship between Roadburn and Enslaved. One of the most hard-hitting and progressive bands to come out of Norway, Enslaved has played a significant part in the festival’s history – both musically and artistically. Not only has Enslaved been our artist in residence, bringing side-projects such as The Armageddon Concerto (the Enslaved / Shining collaboration), Dream of an Opium Eater and Trinacria to Roadburn, Ivar Bjørnson has also been our 2015 co-curator, along with Wardruna’s Einar Kvitrafn Selvik, and resulting in Skuggsjá’s first ever performance outside of Norway. Enslaved’s 2015 performances were the pinnacle of this enduring and artistic friendship, and showcased the massive influence the band has had on both Roadburn, and the (underground) metal scene for the past two decades. To have these shows captured on vinyl is a dream come true for me, and I truly hope it’s the same for anyone who was in attendance, or those who want to indulge themselves in the Northern magic of Enslaved.”
«Roadburn Live» will be available as limited and exclusive Record Store Day color editions and as Roadburn/Enslaved-Webshop Gold edition including the original A3 Roadburn poster and color stickers!

Miracles have not ceased to exist! As we were planning a release on Roadburn Festival 2017 we got a message fromthe plant that the record actually comes in in February. So we decided to set the release date on March 1st and get the pre-sales going now. All orders will be sent out halfway February so you will have it in your hands at the release date.
There are two colors of the vinyl (orange = 100, black = 200) and both are available seperately and with a T-shirt (see the design above). Get in on the action here.
As of January 1st 2017 Burning World Records, together with sublabels Burning Inside Records and Roadburn Records, has joined Southern Lord Europe distribution.
Southern Lord Europe will carry all available titles of our 3 labels and make them available to all their contacts.
Next to our other distributors (Konkurrent for Benelux, Cargo for Germany, Austria and Switzerland) and Clear-spot, Southern Lord Europe will take care of the remaining territories like southern and eastern Europe for us.
It is with great honour Roadburn records can announce the release of The Hague punk space warriors Orange Sunshine will release their 2007 set on the main stage on vinyl. The release – that was earlier available on the searched after cassette on Who Can You Trust Records from Germany was mixed and mastered by evil mastermind Guy Tavares (also on drums and vocals) . The sleeve design (click = big) was in the capable hands of Mehdi Rouchiche, bassist and also known s Godspill.
What if the 60’s were as wildly murderous a time as these strange days? What if it was ALL Charlie Manson and napalm and muddy drugfreak people and Up Against the Wall, Motherfucker? Well, then, there’d only be, like, 5 bands left standing- the Stooges, the MC5, Hendrix, Blue Cheer, and Orange Sunshine. Not that dutch acid-warriors OS were actually THERE or nothin’, the cats in the band are all like, 25 years old, but they sure the fuck sound it. This is the best idea 60’s drug rock has inspired since that time you dipped an entire Freak Brothers comic in blotter acid. See ya on the spaceship. (Sleazegrinder.com)
The album will be first available on the 2017-edition of Roadburn where all pre-orders can also be picked up and after that in all good record ships around the world. Pre-orders will be taken early March and will include a Orange Sunshine shirt with the first 100 copies.
For now: listen to the whole set on Bandcamp, it’s available in full and for “Name your price”.
As a result of JP leaving we still have some stock between us that has to go. That is why we decided to blow it out all at once in this December sale. Gives you a chance to complete your Burning World Records or Roadburn Records collection. Here’s the list of items we have seriously lowered in price. We decided also to include some record from the mailorder that we still have a lot stock of. This offer will run till January 1st 2017. Prices will revert back to ‘normal’ then.
All records are great as far as we are concerned, or even brilliant if you ask us. Why would we otherwise have released them? 😉 But if you decide to pick up only one we advise to check out the Seirom album. It’s Mories from Gnaw Their Tongues showing his softer. shoegazy side (Bandcamp!) and the record is a modern day classic to our ears. Hope you agree! The price is behind the titles:
As you might have noticed Burning World Records and Roadburn Records have not been as active as we once were. That sounds ominous but don’t be afraid: for every ending there is a new beginning! Reason for the relative quiet period (the mail order went on as usual) is that JP has decided to quid Burning World / Roadburn Records per januari 1st 2017. Reason is he wants to focus on his comicstore Senor Hernandez .
Roadburn Records and Lay Bare Recordings are proud to present Dead To A Dying World Live At Roadburn Festival 2016. Mixed by Marcel van de Vondervoort and mastered by James Plotkin.
Listen to the 1st track below:
The album will be out digitally next Thursday October 6th and later in de year on LP+CD on Roadburn Records/Lay Bare Recordings.
For more info on Dead To A Dying World please visit their Facebook-page. Or, as Pitchfork says:
The Texas band Dead to a Dying World plays 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.
Today is the day. The Angelic Process album Weighing Souls With Sand is finally available again on double vinyl since 2008! Mories de Jong of Gnaw Their Tongues/Seirom fame did an update of the artwork (click for bigger).
