Editorial Reviews

To the uninitiated Burning Love is a group from Toronto with a chip on their shoulder and electric blood in their veins; their output a desperate, venomous and informed rock n roll fury that sways and swaggers somewhere between hardcore punk and the darker side of blues gone wrong. After the sudden demise of the now legendary Cursed, enigmatic frontman Chris Colohan picked up right where the band last left us, coming back to the table with a group that had a decidedly different musical approach and direction. While Cursed was intent on tearing wounds, Burning Love takes that similar approach to new levels, luring you in with infectious hooks and full throttle blues before going in for the kill. Merging the darkness of Poison Idea, the melodic aspects of Queens of the Stone Age, and the inspired high energy of the MC5, the attack of Burning Love begins to come into focus. The recording and the production of Rotten Things to Say shows an extreme improvement from the band s past recordings: vocals are clearer (which amplifies their vicious and venomous delivery), guitars are as raw as ever and blatantly cranked to rip off your face. Their songwriting reveals a band at their peak with riffs and melodies as infectious as tuberculosis.

While all the music press were blowing their loads about Black Breath's "Sentenced To Life" last year (an album which I also actually quite enjoyed), Chris Colohan and company quietly put out what imho (in my hirsute opinion) was Southern Lord's best release of 2012. Neil McAdams of Black Breath is certainly a world class bellower, but Chris Colohan is a more engaging vocalist and a rather amazing songwriter to boot. In the end it probably comes down to the fact that death metal-infused hardcore is trendier right now, but if you're in the mood for some good melodic hardcore punk'n'roll with some really intelligent and creepy lyrical content, then, well, it doesn't have that title for nothing.

...while arguing about philosophy with my friends/co-defendants.

This is a band that manages to constantly ride a fine balance of seemingly contradictory elements. The vocals growl and menace like a T-Rex with a mouth full of pitbulls, but the melodies never disappear and never sound forced or weak. In case you don't know, that's not even a LITTLE bit easy to do. The songs are dark, aggressive, punishing affairs that are also insanely hummable and catchy. It's like someone described what a pop song is to the tribe of marauding neanderthals in "2001: A Space Odessy" and let them have at it in a studio.

Speaking of studios, the record was engineered by Kurt Ballou of Converge. Again, there's an impressive balance of clarity and "punch" that shines through thick THICK walls of distortion. It's like this record wants to hurt your stereo's feelings.

On top of all that, this is one of those "no skippable songs" albums. Catchy hooks and riffs? In abundance. Tight musicianship? Every time. Sonic power? Nonstop. This is almost certainly the best record of 2012.

I came to metal from a punk rock background. Something about the raw, visceral nature of punk and hardcore, speak to the child in me, while the adult delights in structured sounds and compositions. When a band can fuse the two as seamlessly as Burning Love do on new album Rotten Thing To Say, chances are I'll not have anything rotten to say about it! I always have loved a hard rocking band, but they need to have enough chops and curveballs to keep a guy who's heard and seen everything, happy. Burning Love come off like newer Coliseum, channeling Black Tusk and Every Time I Die, with Chris Colohan's (Cursed) barking bellow, applying most of the heavy pummel, while the band throws down bar room riffs and barreling drums. This is hardcore, if you mean by punk standards, but the metalheads will see this as lighter fare, still worthy of throwing down to. This is what I listen to at parties, and that's a great compliment to a talented and increasingly popular band. Songs about serial killers, evolution, and religious fanatics help spread the bands sense of urgency and immediacy as they reach out and smash you through the speakers. Basically, this is everything I never knew I wanted, until I heard it. Highly recommended!

I will begin this by stating that Spotify is doing more to alert me to newer bands than Pandora could ever attempt to do. Having liked...no, loved Left For Dead back in the late 1990's, I did a random check to see if they had a discography I could listen to at work. Thanks to "Related Artists", I find the singer's current band Burning Love. Off the cuff, not exactly a band name that recalls aggressive punk rock music but I can assure, this album has a ferocious snarl.

Jumping in with both barrels on "No Love", this album jumps on your throat and never lets you catch your breath. The vocals are mean and nasty, bellowed in only the way a truly great punk rock vocalist can. There is a sense of urgency as any semblance of pretense is stripped down to the framework. The vocals have one setting and it fits the music like a glove. Moving to the music, Burning Love calls to mind the type of rock-and-roll type of punk that made a great 80's skate video legendary. Like the vocals, the music is straight forward and barreling.

Burning Love delivers urgent music from uncertain times. If you can find those moments of complete unvarnished rage within, this album will help to guide you through.
