WORLD BURNS TO DEATH LP LIMITED OUT ! AND THEN GONE!



The Special Edition of WORLD BURNS TO DEATH " The Graveyard Of Utopia" is Sold out in 24 hours! Thanks folks!!The regular version of the third and newest World Burns To Death LP, co-released with HG FACT, will be out soon. Since they have always been home to all things WB2D, we're had HARDCORE HOLOCAUST distribution handle the limited version / The same as the Version recently on Sale at Chaos In Tejas.
You can go directly to HCH New arrivals page Here and pick up some other cool stuff including limited Japanese releases HG FACT and UNDER THE SURFACE records dropped off at the tejas.

We will have the regular version which is deluxe in and of itself, with a heavy weight sleeve and large booklet) on sale shortly, We've apparently backed up the pressing plant with the impending onslaught on Prank Releases!!

Below is the info on the LP itself. We also still have the CD version available.

8 Track Raging Attack of Absolute Hardcore... with searing guitars, a thundering and rapid fire drum pound, and harsh vocals spitting forth a brutal vision. This third LP from Austin, Texas's WORLD BURNS TO DEATH further evolves and refines their trademark sound as dark, ramcharging ultra-punk comes full circle... Here is the speed and severity of their debut 45's AND the refinement, heaviness and precision of their two previous landmark albums on Hardcore Holocaust Records.

"The Graveyard Of Utopia", was tracked initially in Tokyo, Japan after the WB2D 2007 Japanese tour at the legendary OUR HOUSE studios (Where a majority of the classic Tokyo hardcore records have been recorded since the 1980's) with final recording tweaks and mixing done at THE BUBBLE in Austin ( Who have recorded everything from BUILT TO SPILL and THE MEAT PUPPETS, to SIGNAL LOST's 'Prosthetic Screams" ). The result is the band's strongest offering to date.

Studio time in Tokyo allowed for guest appearances from luminaries from the Japanese Punk scene- with backing vocals on from Ishiya FORWARD and Iizawa BASTARD/JUDGEMENT as well as guest guitar solos from Souichi FORWARD and Keiro AKUTARE and Chelsea DEATHSIDE/PAINTBOX. Studio Time in Austin allowed for backing vocals from Ashley SIGNAL LOST.
While WB2D's lyrics have always been caged in Historical reference, the theme of this LP is rooted in the Failures, Disasters and Massacres of the Soviet State Apparatus.

This is a split release between Prank and Japanese label HG FACT, with them handling the CD version and Prank releasing the vinyl. WORLD BURNS TO DEATH are currently preparing for their first tour of Europe, hitting four major punk festivals across Continental Europe and Scanidinavia in a whirlwind two weeks. Making Punk Happen Indeed!

Really hope Jack beefs up the liner notes, etc. I now that's in the works and honestly thats one of my fave things about their releases. Ironically, it's that kind of thing you cant download. Well, you could scan it, but never mind!

The "real" version of this comes with a 12-page booklet with all of that..it was too much to silk screen and the booklets weren't done in time for this version, It also comes in a spot gloss varnished heavy weight sleeves,etc,etc. Still no ETA.... Have you heard "vinyl is hot again"??

thanks a lot noobs, now I can't get records made in a decent turnaround.

Yeah it was actually more of a "pre-release version" with white vinyl and a silkk screened cover... These limited edition things go REALLY fast these days.THe regular edition should be out any day...

Hi, so when's the official Prank release date for this LP? I'm trying to plan it with the 5th Gauze LP so I can grab some for stock over in kiwi land. You should talk Gauze into playing over here :D actually I understand Conquest For Death are touring here soon, fun times all round. On another note are you keen on a package of Demo's from various NZ punk/hardcore bands, free of charge of course.

What's hapened to vinyl is that the Majors have all started pressing vinyl again, flooding the plants that were just pretty much surviving on doing Indie stuff, so it's taking FOREVER for these records to get pressed. I Could move the plates, but it's the same situation at ALL the pressing plants, apparently, in the U.S. The GAUZE and WB2D are finally pressed and should be available next week. And sure, always up to check out some new Stuff, hope to make it back to Aotearoa some time.....
