Ronin Pure Drone. I both like and dislike that it is just one huge track. If you have the time and dedication to listen the whole thing through the reward is big though and I recommend that you strive to do so.

The Digipack is very simple but that really fits the whole mood of the album. Desolate and grand at the same time.

I think this is one of my favorite Drone albums.

Described by Rock-A-Rolla magazine as the bands "most sombre and realised work to date", and who are we to argue ?

Sharing a similarly bleak ground to Corrupted, Sunn 0))) and Earth, New Zealand's Black Boned Angel return with their fourth full length album 'Verdun', and perhaps their most sombre and fully-realised work to-date.

The Battle of Verdun was fought between the German and French armies, and was one of the critical battles during World War 1 on the Western Front. It resulted in more than a quarter of a million battlefield deaths and at least half a million wounded. Verdun was the longest battle and one of the most devastating in World War 1 and indeed in history. Over the course of 50 minutes, BBA soundtrack that brutal conflict with their trademark dark ambient drones and doom-laden riffs.

Available on CD and limited edition black vinyl LP (500 copies only) and exclusive mailorder only grey marble vinyl (100 copies only)
