ENSLAVED to release «Roadburn Live» 2LP for Record Store Day, April 22nd!!

«Roadburn Live» is Enslaved’s first official live album, a split release between Roadburn Records and By Norse Music. The album was recorded during one of band’s headline shows at the renowned Roadburn Festival 2015; an edition curated by Enslaved’s guitar player Ivar Bjørnson.

Walter Hoeijmakers / Roadburn’s Artistic Director comments on the release:
“It’s no secret that there’s a strong friendship between Roadburn and Enslaved. One of the most hard-hitting and progressive bands to come out of Norway, Enslaved has played a significant part in the festival’s history – both musically and artistically. Not only has Enslaved been our artist in residence, bringing side-projects such as The Armageddon Concerto (the Enslaved / Shining collaboration), Dream of an Opium Eater and Trinacria to Roadburn, Ivar Bjørnson has also been our 2015 co-curator, along with Wardruna’s Einar Kvitrafn Selvik, and resulting in Skuggsjá’s first ever performance outside of Norway. Enslaved’s 2015 performances were the pinnacle of this enduring and artistic friendship, and showcased the massive influence the band has had on both Roadburn, and the (underground) metal scene for the past two decades. To have these shows captured on vinyl is a dream come true for me, and I truly hope it’s the same for anyone who was in attendance, or those who want to indulge themselves in the Northern magic of Enslaved.”

«Roadburn Live» will be available as limited and exclusive Record Store Day color editions and as Roadburn/Enslaved-Webshop Gold edition including the original A3 Roadburn poster and color stickers!

BURNING WORLD RECORDS ‘going through changes’ statement

GDOB2-30CH-001.cdrAs you might have noticed Burning World Records and Roadburn Records have not been as active as we once were. That sounds ominous but don’t be afraid: for every ending there is a new beginning! Reason for the relative quiet period (the mail order went on as usual) is that JP has decided to quid Burning World / Roadburn Records per januari 1st 2017. Reason is he wants to focus on his comicstore Senor Hernandez .

For more info on Dead To A Dying World please visit their Facebook-page. Or, as Pitchfork says:

The Texas band Dead to a Dying World plays a hybrid of doom, black metal, and crust punk, buttressed by baroque classical flourishes and focused on the state of the world and its rather grim prospects. Its six extended pieces commingle melodrama and momentum, horror and hope, pulling the listener along like a tight-wire suspense flick.

ATLANTIS confirmed for Roadburn Festival 2014

Roadburn-2014-AtlantisRoadburn Festival has just confirmed that Burning World signing Atlantis will play the world reknowned festival on on Saturday, April 12th at Cul de Sac in Tilburg, The Netherlands.

The whole press release states:

With three critically acclaimed albums, Carpe OmniumMistress Of Ghosts, and  Omens, plus their intense live shows,Atlantis has become a respected name in the post-metal / rock scene.

Their latest release, Omens, is an intense, engaging, bleak, and heavy affair, which compelled us to let Atlantis return to Roadburn Festival, after performing at the 2012 Afterburner.

While all music is written by Gilson HeitingaAtlantis live is a full blown band. By creating a deafening wall of sound with their mixture of noise, doom, ambient, industrial, electronica, and metal, Atlantis tears down the walls between these genres, leaving their audiences in a state of awe.

NIHILL As. Undead at Roadburn 2013 tape up for pre-order

Roadburn-2013-Afterburner-NihillThe first recordings from Roadburn Festival 2013 to see the light of day is the blistering and blackened Sunday live performance of Tilburg’s own Nihill. As. Nihill Undead At Roadburn 2013 will be released on tape – which is a Roadburn Records first! 100 copies. No digital. Just analog. Get yours here. Tapes will be sent out 1st  or 2nd week of june 2013.

Some gracious quotes about the performance:

‘Nihill then show up out of the darkness of the Green Room to ruin everyone’s relaxed party-end atmosphere. On their very first live show, the subtle genius of their three records engulfed in a whirlwind of black/doom malice and then spat out again in disgust, in a stage performance much more focused on unhinged violence than their recordings. Such is the beating we take from them that everything seems less great after Nihill.’  Terrorizer

‘Nightmarish black metal from Roadburn’s own backyard, featuring Michiel Eikenaar from Dodecahedron on brutishly snarled vocals; they laid down the kind of performance that bands with decades more experience would slit their own wattled throats for.’ Grim Kim for Metalsucks.

 

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.
