It’s no secret that we’re hooked on riff-mongers Yob, so today we’re bringing you the track premiere of Ball of Molten Lead (Left Click to listen or Right Click to download). The track (wrongly named as Quantum Mystic) comes off the band’s new album, “Live at Roadburn 2010”, which is available on CD/DVD and digitaly via Burning World Records / Bandcamp, followed by a vinyl version later this year or early 2012.
‘Damn this is good! Bong bring it, all right, quite recommended, definitely for fans of Om, SUNNO, Grails, Sylvester Anfang… and of course Bong. And bongs! Most if not all Bong releases thus far have been live, and this one is much less of a lo-fi recording than some of those, making for an essential document of Bong’s unique trance-inducing potency.’
Words of praise from our good friends at aQuarius Records in San Francisco. And they did that review on the audio from the cd alone. They didn’t even see the beautiful vinyl version that hase come in. Check the photo’s below and pick one up on black or gold vinyl and all in gatefold sleeve on our new site.

Recently, Liverpudlian heavyweights Conan announced that they had signed to Burning World/Roadburn Records (that’s us!) for the release of their soon to be recorded 2012 album. Following on from that, they are delighted to be able to announce that their recent split album with Northern Irish riff lords Slomatics will also be getting a release via Burning World Records (us again!).
Originally only available on a limited edition vinyl via Head of Crom (now all but sold out, but we still have some on blue vinyl in our store. Same goes for Conan’s debut Horseback Battle Hammer onn white vinyl), the crushing might of this doom tag team will soon be available on compact disc from our friends in Holland.
The split, which was mastered by James Plotkin (Khanate, Pelican, Earth) has already received rave reviews in its wax format. “People should be aware that the CD release was mixed with a lot more bottom end than the vinyl release – it’s ridiculously heavy.” comments Conan’s riff-mastermind, Jon Davis. The incredible artwork by Tony Roberts (Electric Wizard, Cathedral) can be seen on the left.
Pre-order will be up in about two weeks.
You can watch the whole show at Vimeo: courtesy of LeeSakura, Roadburn’s videocrew. The high quality version, including a remastered sound will be available at the dvd.
The cd/dvd will be out September 1st 2011, followed by a vinyl version later this year of early 2012.
Pre-order the cd/dvd at the new Burning World Records site.
Burning World Records is proud to present the second installment in the Lustmord vinyl re-issue series. After the release of Zoetrope double album last year, this fall we will bring you The Monstrous Soul, originally recorded and released in 1990. The album has been described as: ‘a journey through a frozen hell’. The first 100 copies will be on green vinyl, to reflect the font color on the sleeve, the other 400 copies will be on pitch black vinyl. Running order and extra info after the break.
The 2LP will come out October 1st 2011 but is already available for pre-order, in green and black vinyl and in a nice package in combination with Zoetrope.
It took a while but now it’s finally here: Wardruna’s dark folk masterpiece Runaljod-gap var Ginnunga on double vinyl, packed in a trifold sleeve and with a nice booklet as companion. Released by Burning World Records in cooperation with Alone Records from Spain.
As Einar Kvitrafn of Wardruna describes the album:
Runaljod – gap var Ginnunga is the first part in the Runaljod trilogy. Each album features eight runes of the Elder Futhark, but not in accordance with the order of the three aettirs (families), which is most common when working with this futhark. Many of the recordings have taken place outdoors at locations relevant to the different runes. We have primarily used old, historical instruments such as self-made frame drums and ceremonial drums, mouth harp, tagelharpe (‘viking fiddle’), flutes, goat horns, tongue horns and Hardanger fiddle. Also more unconventional inputs like trees, stones, bones, water, fire etc. are employed to enhance the nature of the rune being ‘portrayed’.
We’ve made two versions of the album: one in white and the other one in black vinyl. White is limited to 100 copies, black to 400. On our new site you can order both version at once with a nice discount.

Caveman Battle Doom Lords CONAN and European purveyors of fine riffs BURNING WORLD RECORDS-mothership of Roadburn Records and home of musical heavyweights Gnaw Their Tongues, Lustmord and A Storm of Light- have joined forces for the release of CONAN’S first full length album.
This leaden slab of doom is due to be recorded towards the end of the year at the renowned Foel Studio, with producer Chris Fielding. The album is pencilled is scheduled for early 2012. The release will follow on from the success of 2010’s devastating Horseback Battle Hammer (Throne Records / Aurora Borealis Records) and the current release, a grim black hole of tone in the form of a split with Northern Ireland’s Slomatics (Head of Crom Records). CONAN slay all with a compelling mix of devastating drones and warhorse-gallop crust to drive home their brutal intention and wrestle victory from the jaws of chaos.

“Music lives and dies by its ability to affect the listener, yet few metal bands are capable of making a record that moistens the eyes and puts a lump in the throat of even the most sentimental listener, let alone the most hardened of metal fans. But when not only does this, but does it through the medium of savage, bleak black metal while still evoking all the emotions metal’s most evil style is known for, this becomes a staggering achievement. Winterfylleth have done just this.” (Tom Dare, Trashhits.com)
If you like the warm textured black metal sounds of Wolves in the Throne Room, Altar of Plagues or Fen, this Terrorizer magazine favourite is your new favourite band. Winterfylleth destroyed the Roadburn festival in April and is making lots of friend in Europe at the moment.
