Here is the Music Player. You need to installl flash player to show this cool thing!
For the last two years, I’ve done a Buried Treasure report (see here, and here) on the return from Roadburn specifically related to the CDs purchased there, either from the bands or the labels with distro setups. Both of those posts were titled “The Tilburg Haul.” This time, I thought I’d do something a little different and use the discs I bought to put together the latest installment of the audiObelisk podcasts. The name, as you can see above, stayed the same.
Admittedly, it’s not all stuff I bought at Roadburn 2011. The Black Pyramid, Blood Farmers, Candlemass and Ramesses I already owned, but I thought they were worth including anyway, since those performances were highlights of the fest experience. Things like Quest for Fire and Samsara Blues Experiment I had promos of and was happy to nab full-artwork copies, and then there’s bands like Slough Feg, Mercyful Fate, Samavayo, Pontiak and Tia Carrera, who didn’t play at all, but whose albums I nonetheless was able to pick up.
Like the rest of Roadburn, the record shopping there is one of a kind. I picked up a lot of stuff on Nasoni (you’ll see it in the track list), because even in the Euro it’s cheaper than paying import prices for it here, and the version of Goatsnake‘s first album I bought just because it’s on Rise Above (as opposed to the Man’s Ruin original American release or the Southern Lord reissue). I bought On Trial and Dragontears discs from Lorenzo Woodrose directly, White Hills from White Hills, and a limited disc of Michael Gira home recordings from which a couple of the tracks on last year’s Swans full-length, My Father Will Guide Me up a Rope to the Sky, were culled. That’s signed too.
That’s a special inclusion here, and throughout, you’ll also hear new music from Pentagram from their Last Rites album (review here) and The Gates of Slumber, who were selling their new record, The Wretch, for a measly 10 Euro. I was also thrilled to pick up the original issue of the first Dead Meadow, and live at Roadburn offerings from Bong and Year of No Light, tracks from both of which show up here.
There might not be as many songs here as last month, but with a couple cuts over 20 minutes and plenty of other spacious pieces besides, we still come close to three and a half hours, and I figure that’s plenty long enough. You’ll notice some abrupt transitions and some smooth transitions, which I thought was appropriate to the nature of Roadburn itself, where you can be watching Coffins one minute and Place of Skulls the next. In any case, I hope you enjoy listening, as always.
