“Pillar of Shame” by BURNER paint a vivid picture of a dystopian society struggling under oppressive rule. The new track just landed online and it marks an excellent follow up to their previous single “Prometheus Reborn”.
In the chaotic, brutal new offering, the image of thousands of hands reaching up to a red sky symbolizes the desperation and hopelessness felt by the masses. The faded slogans on waving banners suggest that the principles and values of a past era have been lost or forgotten, and the people are left seeking forgiveness and clinging to their beliefs.
Burner have gained recognition from Daniel P Carter’s Kerrang! feature, Metal Hammer’s list of bands to watch in 2022, and BBC Radio 1’s Rock Show, as well as praise from numerous other publications.
Their debut LP, ‘It All Returns to Nothing,’ continues from their 2022 EP, ‘A Vision of The End.’ Showcasing their distinct sound, the album combines hardcore, death metal, and black metal elements.
Recorded by Lewis Johns at The Ranch Production House, the 11-track LP highlights a band with a voracious appetite for creating heavy, extreme music.
Burner skillfully blends various influences, drawing from bands like Trap Them, Darkest Hour, Gatecreeper, Converge, and Bolt Thrower, showcasing their unique, diverse sound.
