Burst – “Conquest: Writhe” CD
Before becoming progressive metal pioneers, with a run of albums on Relapse Records through the first decade of the 2000s, Sweden’s Burst released a ferocious hardcore album for Prank Records in 2001, which remains a very fine moment for both the band and the label. Sadly only available on CD, but a recording that should not be allowed to gather dust, lost to time, and without the neccessary appreciation. ‘Cos it’s an absolute belter. And an overlooked gem.
