Red is our color for Europe and we have limited amounts of the blue and clear version so be quick if you need one of those. If you need the bandversion I guess you go see them on tour or get one in their online store when they put them up. So be quick or these will be gone again!
Official release date is July 10th 2015 but we will ship out last week of June to make sure you will have the album when it comes out.
It’s that time of the month again. Our irregular update of all new vinyl we got in the store in the last few weeks. And we have a nice suprise (official announcement will follow shortly after this post): all orders over 50 euro (without shipping) will get a White Hills / Earthless Roadburn Records Scion AV exclusive 10″ for free! Just select it when you check out. But no hanky panky! If your order is not 50 euro or more, the free 10″ will be cancelled. And these 10″s will not be sold seperately as these are promo items only. We only have a limited amlount so get in while you can!
Just a short note to say that we have about 15 more gold copies for sale. We always wait till the album comes in to check if it arrived all right and to have some to spare in case some were damaged. And next to that we had some customers who bought way more that was allowed. I mean we are not against Ebay gold but we’d rather sell 1 copies top 10 customers than 10 copies to one Ebay seller who then flips them for 200$ (yes that’s you Old Man Chair Records, Ote138 and Wellington3rd). So this item now has a 1 copy per customer cap. If you buy more you’ll be refunded for both items and get no record. We know there is still ways to get more when you buy with different addresses and such but so be it.
The album is in production, the test-pressing is confirmed so this means we can put this baby up for pre-sale. Roadburn Records is proud to present Chelsea Wolfe Live At Roadburn 2012 LP to the world. This album will only be available on vinyl, no cd or digital release is planned at this moment (and chances are there will be none). Find the artwork for the album to the left (click=big) – made by Ben Chisholm of the band – and the links to purchase the album on gold (limited to 100 copies) or on black vinyl (400 copies) below.
And the good news keep on coming. After White Hills US, Black Magician and Chelsea Wolfe another addition to the roster. Slomatics from Belfast, Ireland will release their cd A Hocht on Burning World Records in September 2012. Artwork will be provided by Tony Roberts who also did the Conan – Monnos album and the Conan / Slomatics split cd for us. Vinyl duties will be handled by UK’s own Head Of Crom Records. Mastering was done by James Plotkin.
Slomatics from Belfast reporting for duty to bring you a blitzkrieg of total chaos and destruction. As their name might indicate, these guys like it slow; Electric Wizard riffage mixed with Melvins grooves and some DNA from the New Orleans family (Eyehategod, Sourvein). With two maximum low tuned guitars, who needs a bass player anyway? As a trio, Slomatics will do enough damage as it is!
Happy days at the Roadburn Records offices. After announcing the release of Black Magician and White Hills US release last week, we have other news we like to share with you. LA chanteuse Chelsea Wolfe will release the set that she and her band played at Roadburn 2012 through Roadburn Records in September. The set (which you can listen to below courtesey of VPRO’s 3VOOR12) was remastered by the band and will only be released on limited edition vinyl. Pre-sales will go up halfway August and the records will be sent out halfway September of this year.
Northern California native Chelsea Wolfe’s sound is best described with broad strokes: elemental, intense, radiant, ancient yet modern, intimate yet expansive, dark and sparkling. Hues of black metal and deep blues inform her ever-evolving electric folk, a warm force that wraps itself around the listener, encouraging uplift, seeking triumph. Her voice similarly haunts and soothes, with words that illuminate life’s darker corners in order to reveal the unlikely truth and beauty hidden within.
