WOLF BLOOD to release debut album on Burning World this fall

Wolf Blood ArtBurning World Records is extremely proud to add another high quality act to the roster. After signing bands like Monomyth, Conan, Slomatics, Nihill and Altar Of Plagues (to name but a few) we can announce that Wolf Blood from Minnesota will join our label with their debut album this fall. The 4-piece band has the songs, the power and the riffs, like Windhand en Goatsnake before them. You can listen to the songs of the album below on Bandcamp in a pre-mixed and mastered version.

“Wolf Blood is indeed that brutal–’brutal’ as in smack-your-face loud rock-n-roll, amps on fire, packed house, broken glass, cops-breaking-up-the-party brutal.” –Homegrown Music Festival Field Guide, 2014

After selling out the entire first cassette-pressing of their debut album in less than a week, Wolf Blood is set to release the vinyl version of the self-titled monster in September, 2014 on Burning World Records. Their tour begins September 28. Check out Wolf-Blood on Facebook for date and venue specifics.

Formed in a dank basement during the infamous 2012 Duluth, Minnesota flood, guitarist Mike Messina and drummer Jake Paulsrud started writing psycho-sludge experiments that sounded too stoned to be metal, and too baneful to be indie-rock. They recruited renown hard-core guitar sorceress Mindy Johnson and magi-roots bassist Brian Wells to flesh-out the menacing sound, and Wolf Blood came to life inside the polar vortex of 2013/14 with highly acclaimed performances in Duluth and Minneapolis. And this fall, after the hottest summer in recorded history, the resulting entrée finds a new home on vinyl.

This seven-song recording opens with they haunting single Witch. From there…you’re on your own for the next 35 feral, blood stained minutes.

For fans of: Windhand, Goatsnake, Eyehategod

Scion AV presents Roadburn Records: interviews, live video, free EP!

roadburn_800x800Roadburn records was honored to be invited by Scion AV to curate a night in The Roxy on Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles. On the 12th of November last year 4 bands took the stage for some schreddin performances. First up were San Diego proggers Astra, followed by New York’s garage psychedelics White Hills and riffmongers Earthless. Norwegian psychedelic black metallers Enslaved headlined the festivities wit material from their just released album RITTIR, some classics and an Led Zeppelin cover. What a day that was!

And late last year we (JP and Jurgen) were interviewed for as well for Scion. Watch those clips below. After the break more links to audio and video material of that night and a free download of the White Hills / Earthless 10″.

THE OBSESSED Live in Koln out now on vinyl in the USA

The Obsessed Live in Koln vinyl  is now also available in the USA with a new sleeve design! On red and grey vinyl. Listen to the sample track Mourning on our Bandcamp page.

This is what our American distributor Outer Battery Records in Vermont says about the album:

Have we got a hot record for you guys! Our partnership continues with Roadburn – the Dutch festival/label – and this time 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.
