Burnt By The Sun are back!! Back in the glorious heydays of hardcore / math / metal, these guys were often mentioned in one breath with bands such as Botch or Converge. They have that discordant sound like other NJ bands such as Nora or Dillinger Escape Plan. Burnt By The Sun feature members of Human Remains, Discordance Axis (Dave Witte!!!) and last but least Mike Olender of Endeavor!!
Relapse has the following to say: "Heart of Darkness" clearly stands head and shoulders above the band's renowned catalog. Every aspect of this legendary band has been pushed to the limit: crushing riffs rain down like cement blocks, drums explode like gunfire and strident vocals howl against a modern dystopian society that besets us all, echoing the music's sonic sentiment. "Heart of Darkness" is both the heaviest Burnt by the Sun record and stacked with the band's most memorable songs to date such as "Inner Station," "Cardiff Giant," "Rust (Future Primitive)," and "The Great American Dream Machine." Burnt by the Sun have saved their best for last."
Relapse are only taking pre-orders for the CD, but for 21,90€ you can reserve a copy of the LP from Record Shop X/
