This time it’s an album from one of the classic doom bands of all time: The Obsessed. We were lucky to release this album to celebrate the return of the band playing live at Roadburn Festival 2012. Together with Live In Amsterdam and a repress of The Church Within on double 10″ (long sold out).
This is in short what we wrote at the time about the album:
‘We bring you The Obsessed’s “Live in Koln” LP. Recorded in 1992 and featuring the line-up from “The Church Within” – Scott ‘Wino’ Weinrich on guitar/vocals, Greg Rogers on drums and Guy Pinhas on bass – “Live in Koln” is 10 monstrous slabs of doom that captures the band at their peak.’
To clean out our offices you can get this beauty now fo the bargain price of 7,50 euro. Act fast as there’s only a limited amount avaible. Get this record (and others in the summer sale) in the Burning World Records online store.
Roadburn Records is proud to announce the next installment in our ongoing Live At Roadburn-series. This time the gig My Brother The Wind played at Roadburn 2013 is available for free download at Bandcamp and for pre-order on double (but 3-sided!) vinyl.
Who is this My Brother The Wind you talk about you say, well… Led by Anekdoten‘s Nicklas Barker, the chemistry between Barker, Mathias Danielsson (guitars), Ronny Eriksson (bass) and Tomas Eriksson (drums) is really something special, as captured on their latest album, I Wash My Soul in the Stream of Infinity , recorded in only 4 hours during a cold Swedish winter’s night in 2011.
With the focus less on guitar solos and more on group virtuosity, the instrumentation is altered to create interesting and intricately layered rock soundscapes, seemingly influenced by King Crimson, Amon Düül II and Sweden’s seminal prog-pioneers, Träd, Gräs och Stenar. This particular influences serve in distinguishing My Brother The Wind‘s instrumental odysseys from the current crop of European jam-bands.
My Brother The Wind takes the best elements of improvised kraut and prog-rock, and once the spaceship has escaped the pull of Earth’s gravity, they drift into magnificent droning space rock and psychedelic orbits.
Listen to the mixed and mastered version below on Bandcamp. If you like you can download it for free, or if you can you can donate some to the label and the band. For those who like their music on a physical format: we have a 2-Lp package for pre-sale in either black, white or gold vinyl. All version have a cd with the gig included.

Titanic Team-Up Featuring Psych Rock’s Heaviest Hitters Takes Physical Form!
Monstrous Mash-Up From Members of Dinosaur Jr., Lecherous Gaze, OFF!, Rocket From the Crypt, Sweet Apple, Witch and More Delivers Whiz-Bang Wallop the Likes of Which the World Has Never Heard Before!!!
This July, a colossal collaborative concert, previously privy only to those who were fortunate enough to have helped fill a Netherlandic concert hall multiple moons ago, will be unleashed in awesome audio form as EARTHLESS Meets HEAVY BLANKET In A Dutch Haze. The out-of-this-world recording will see a July 8 release date via Outer Battery Records / Roadburn Records.
Back-story: an impromptu heavy psych JAM between J Mascis (DINOSAUR JR, SWEET APPLE, WITCH and one of both Rolling Stone and SPIN’s “Greatest Guitarists of All Time”) and California space rock masters EARTHLESS at the 2009 SXSW Festival left an onlooking crowd stunned and breathless. When word of the performance spread, the world-renowned musicians were asked to play the main stage of Holland’s annual international rock festival, Roadburn, to attempt to recreate the magic that revved-up an Austin audience at what was thought to be a one-time event.
Fast forward to the 2012 installment of the fantastic fest; when EARTHLESS’ guitarist Isaiah Mitchell had to back out at the last minute due to unforeseen circumstance, six-string shredder Graham Clise from J Mascis’ loud, psychedelic project HEAVY BLANKET (and who also plays with Mascis in WITCH and in the bitchin’ Bay Area band LECHEROUS GAZE) stepped in on second guitar. Backed by the best rhythm section in today’s adventurous rock world — Mario Rubalcaba and Mike Eginton from EARTHLESS — the quartet stormed the stage for what would become an incredible one-time happening, leading to almost a full hour of some of the most mind-bending heavy psych imaginable. The epic jam session gave birth to shredding psychedelia and hard rock blues underpinned by the muscular rhythmic sensibilities of kraut-rock and the unbridled energy of 70′s guitar rock. The formidable foundation laid by drummer Rubalcaba became a jumping off point for Mascis, Clise and Eighton to explore their inner cosmoi for consciousness-expanding riffs and music-induced psychedelic experiences.
1.) Paradise in a Purple Sky (58:34)
Now, the rest of the planet can ready their receivers and hoist headphones on high as the full live set from that magical evening in Tilburg is set to be unleashed upon an unsuspecting world! Far-out, gatefold-spanning artwork by San Francisco tattoo artist and designer Tim Lehi (High on Fire, Black Anvil, Xasthur) perfectly animates this incredible audio adventure, while matchless mastering by Carl Saff (Boris, Guided By Voices), pushes this priceless performance over-the-top. Flame retardant clothing is highly recommended!
EARTHLESS Meets HEAVY BLANKET In A Dutch Haze is available for pre-order purchase now at this location. The initial LP pressing takes the form of a special, 2xLP on green vinyl, limited to 300 copies, only available at Burning World Records. Collectors, don’t delay!
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.’

From the newsdesk of The Midnight Ghost Train:
‘We are very very happy and proud to announce that we will be releasing our “Live From Roadburn 2013” This september on Vinyl and CD on ROADBURN RECORDS, these guys are the king record label of heavy music in europe and we are very excited to work with them. It will be distributed all through europe and when the time comes you will beable to buy this awesome live record on Roadburn Records website, or at our live show. Our european tour this september and october will be our first tour with this release, It was already going to be an awesome tour but now its just gotten a lot heavier. So for all you european fans you will have first dibs on this release. This record reflects our live show perfectly, its dirty, its heavy and its full of soul. With lots of songs that have never been released on any of our previous records, including a cover by Left Lane Cruiser.’
We of course are honored to work with this ‘hardest working band in showbusiness! Later this week we’ll post a first teaser of what the album will sound like.
It’s wednesday again so we have another week long sale for you. This week it’s one of the classics from the Live At Roadburn catalogue: Wino – Live At Roadburn 2010 (on gold vinyl). Read what The Sleeping Shaman had to say about the release when it came out:
‘Sound wise we are left in no doubt that this is as live as an album can get. It is just one step away from being a soundboard recording, albeit an exceptional one. This is one of the biggest selling points, however. Each instrument sits right in the mix in the perfect spot and the sound is admirably rich for such an honest recording. Wino and Roadburn Records have also not skimped on the recording, this is the whole set as it went down…no omitting tracks because of fluffs or fluctuations in response or quality…this is a warts and all document of a unique and special band on a special night for them. When Wino tells the crowd from the stage how much he enjoys playing with this line-up you can’t help but believe him, that spirit oozes from this recording.’
We have a limited supply available of this title so get it while it’s still on sale. Next week it will be normal price again.
This album is dedicated to bassist Jon Blank who passed away 4 days after the show.
