New Music: The Burning Hell’s ‘Revival Beach’ Or ‘Songs Of The Coming Apocalypse’

We’re all going to die sometime. My condolences, but it’s something of an inevitability. It’s likely to be some sort of horribly introspective event, or we’ll be otherwise too busy to properly reflect on it in the moment. The Burning Hell have pre-empted just such a possibility by providing us with their newest album, ‘Revival Beach’, or as we like to think of it, ‘Songs of the Coming Apocalypse’. At least they make it sound fun. Continue reading New Music: The Burning Hell’s ‘Revival Beach’ Or ‘Songs Of The Coming Apocalypse’
