Burning World Records to release vinyl repress of Monnos by CONAN

Conan-Monnos-Artwork At the time of release 2 years ago Pitchfork by way of Kim Kelly described the album as follows:

‘To strip the flesh from the bones is to find a band bent on replicating and revering the heavy sounds that came before them. To label them “stoner doom” does them a disservice. At their core, Conan are a doom band with repetitive song structures, and windswept clean vocals; the devil, however, is in the details, and the extra layers of effects and mechanical wizardry they heap upon their pure-hearted compositions elevate them to the next level. Monnos is their most solid, well-developed, and impressive effort yet, and those who walk the doomed path would do well to join their ranks.’

The vinyl of this album has been out of print for quite some time and we (the band and us) decided it was time for a repress! On green vinyl this time. Get in on the action here.

ULVER Live At Roadburn 2LP (+ shirt!) and CD now available for pre-sale

ULVER_cd-roadburndigipakEarly pioneers of Norwegian black metal Ulver have continually evolved over the years to become living legends of the dark music genre. By blending rock, electronic, industrial and symphonic traditions along with ambient soundscapes and experimental sounds, the band has created truly groundbreaking material.

Ulver returned with Childhood’s End, a collection of classic psychedelic tracks recorded by the band during various sessions starting in late 2008 and ending in late 2011. “This is the stuff that we sit at home and get stoked about,” Kristoffer Rygg explained in an interview. “I grew up with parents who were still listening to music from the time, so it informed my childhood, but it has became an ever increasing geeky sort of fetish since then.”

This passion for Sixties garage rock and psychedelia and the countless underground gems that remain unknown to many inspired the band to record their own interpretations of some of their favorite songs from the era. “My feeling is that most people’s knowledge sort of limits itself to The Doors,” said Rygg, “The Doors were cool, but there was so much else going on in the underground, records that got lost and didn’t get as much recognition as they deserved in my opinion.”

Ulver performed the tracks from Childhood’s End for the first and only time live at Roadburn 2012. Their “1967” performance, mixed by Kristoffer Rygg and mastered by Jaime Gomez Arellano, will be released on 2LP and CD through Burning World Records and available at this year’s Roadburn Festival.

That album is now available for pre-order on vinyl and cd and will be sent out the 2nd week of April 2013 or can be picked up at the Roadburn Festival 2013.

The vinyl is available in 3 colors:

  • Gold (100 copies, only available at Burning World Records),
  • White (300 copies, only available at Burning World Record and the USA)
  • Black (600 copies, available at Burning World Records and all good shops near you!)

There is also an option to buy all 3 colors at a special price and the gold version is also available in a package with a shirt (round sleeve design, gold on black). Get it here.

To get a taste of their Live at Roadburn album, listen to Ulver’s take on The Music Emporium‘s Velvet Sunset below.

CONAN: Artwork For Monnos’ Revealed + CD Pre Sales Now Available

Many thanks to our Friends at The Sleeping Shaman for posting the following item on the fantastic new artwork by Tony Roberts (click left on image = bigger):

“The eagerly anticipated 2nd Full Length Album from UK’s Caveman Battle Doomer’s CONAN entitled ‘Monnos’ will be released on 2nd April 2012 via Burning World Records, initially on CD, pre-sales for which are now available HERE (3 versions: with shirt and with the Conan/Slomatics cd included) with the vinyl being released to coincide with the bands appearance at this year’s Roadburn Festival on 13th April 2012 at the O13 in Tilburg.

And today, we can unveil the amazing artwork which was expertly carved out by Tony Roberts, who has now collaborated with CONAN on all of their releases so far and you can check it out below.

Guitarist and Vocalist Jon commented on the new album, their Roadburn appearance and how they once again got Tony Roberts involved to design the sleeve…

“We’re looking forward to getting Monnos out there. We feel the songs are as heavy, if not heavier, than those on Horseback and the split, and still retain the clarity of the tracks on the split. We are always very careful, when writing new stuff, to try and improve upon or vary slightly from what we have written before. We don’t want people to think we are content to just write the same old shit. We’re currently in the very early stages of writing new material and hopefully we can start working towards the follow up to Monnos in the not too distant future but we won’t take anything to the studio until we think it’s worth putting out. Right now we want to enjoy the release of the album, see what people think and play some more shows. When we got the invite for Roadburn 2012 we shifted a couple of dates around to make our appearance on the Friday possible because, and let’s face it, you don’t turn down the chance to appear at Roadburn unless you have a VERY good reason.”
