Burnside Album Details

Old Iron, Lupus Metallorum

Lupus Metallorum is the sophomore album by Old Iron. From the opening riff, the precedent is set for the trio’s no-frills combination of ruthless noise rock and bottom-heavy sludge. Weighty riffs and malevolent stomp tap into the same adrenaline-producing frequency as a battle cry, with guitarist/vocalist Jesse Roberts’ howl summoning the same primitive visceral response as the Western Huns’ harrowing call-to-arms. If Roberts and his cohorts Jerad Shealey (bass) and Trent McIntyre (drums) were merely interested in using their tactics as a study in Pavlovian conditioning, Lupus Metallorum would succeed in making us salivating over their riffs. Lupus Metallorum captures the full weight of a band whose megalithic sound had previously best been experienced live and in the flesh. First pressing includes hand screened lyrics sheet w/ bonus artwork (limited to 250)
