Weighing Souls With Sand by Angelic Process was the 2nd release of Roadburn records way back in 2007 (wow has it bee that long? We feel a 10 year anniversary coming up!). The record has gained notoriety over the years as the best thing that has come out of the combined minds of K Angylus and M Dragynfly. All though we like Coma Wearing and other releases from them as well WSWS has always had a special place in our hearts because – well we released it!
The album was also catching crazy money on Ebay and such and we also had a lot of requests for a reissue so we are glad to announce that this will happen after 9 years. The double album (including one vinyl-only track on side D!) will be out in March and pre-orders will go up next week. More info on the release then as the artwork has been slightly altered and a dedication to K Angylus was added.
For those not familiar with the album. This is quote from the Popmatters-review at the time: The variation the pair displays is sublime: we get the drone of Boris, the experimental noise of Swans, the mechanical crunch of Godflesh, the epic scope of Isis, the awe-inspiring power of Neurosis, and the sumptuous beauty of My Bloody Valentine all at once, as the musicians croon and scream, the oblique vocals in the vein of classic shoegaze from the early 1990s. The enveloping effect of the album’s mix is stunning, as the underlying melodies bring genuine warmth, radiating from the massive wall of sound.
Or listen to the album 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.
After Christmas, in the first week of the new year, we have to do inventory for tax purposes. Never the most fun part of the year but it always helps if we don’t have to count too many items! So to help limit the work we have put up all cd’s as Christmas sale for 3 euro and some vinyl packages for nice prices. Next to that we do not press any cd’s any more in the future so this would make more room for vinyl as well in the years to come.
Which cd’s are 3 euro you ask? Here’s the list:
Uzala live at Roadburn 2015 is now available on ‘Pay what you want’-basis on Bandcamp. For now only digital is available. The order for vinyl has been put in at the plant but we expect a release date not earlier then February 2016. We’ll keep you posted on that.
We could try to describe how the gig was but JJ over at The Obelisk does that better than we ever could:
“I had planned on catching a bit of Uzala in the Green Room and movesing on to the next set, but once they went on, the Boise, Idaho, three-piece held me in place. I didn’t know it at the time, but they were just what I was looking for. Guitarist Chad Remains, guitarist Darcy Nutt (also running her guitar through a bass rig, for extra low-end) and drummer Chuck Watkins had a new song in tow called “The Gallows,” and that moved a little faster than some of their more plodding material from 2014’s righteous Tales of Blood and Fire, songs like “Dark Days” and “Seven Veils,” but wherever they headed, they were just the right blend of beat-you-over-the-head heaviness in Remains and Nutt‘s tones, melody and lurching groove that I couldn’t have left even if I’d wanted to. They were not to be missed, in other words. Vocals were a little low, at least up front where I was standing, but Nutt has a powerful voice and as dense as those tones got — seriously, there were parts where they sounded like a machine grinding to a halt; I wondered how they’d restart it for the next measure — she cut through with little trouble and palpable soul.
Their set was a highlight of the day for me, all the more because I’d seen them before, knew what I Uzala was getting into and they still managed to surprise with how switched on they were. Remains shredded his solos in top form and had some technical trouble along the way that was fixed so promptly by the Green Room crew that I’m not even sure he noticed. Only complaint? No “Tenement of the Lost.” The closer from Tales of Blood and Fire that begins with a wash of feedback and culminates in one of the sweetest minimalist doom ballads my ears have heard in the last five years — it’s my go-to sad song — would’ve certainly been welcome, but honestly, I think the maximum-volume approach they took was probably a more practical call given the room. I could’ve gone to see Russian Circles on the Main Stage, or Thou at Het Patronaat, or Moaning Cities, in Stage01, but Uzala kept me where I was. They were a thrill to watch.”
Yes!! We finally got permission to do another (and final) reprint of onbe of our best selling records (they were gone in matter of days): Chelsea Wolfe Live At Roadburn. On 4 colors no less this time:

And the summer sale continues!
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.
