Prosthetic Records is thrilled to announce the signing of Chicago’s SNOW BURIAL. The doomy three-piece will release their second full length album - titled Ostrava - on September 20.
Of the signing, SNOW BURIAL’s Ben Bowman comments:
"We are so excited to team up with Prosthetic Records and release Ostrava on their label. This album means the world to us and to be able to work with this team is a dream come true. Joining a label with so many friends and bands we love makes it all the better."
SNOW BURIAL will celebrate their signing to the label by hitting the road this week with Aseethe. The two bands released a split EP together last year and their dual pronged trail of audio destruction kicks off this Thursday. Full dates are below.
Recorded in early 2019 at Electrical Audio, Chicago with Shane Hochstetler at the helm, Ostrava maps where life’s beauty and terror collide. Born from their defining experiences at home and on the road the unifying theme of Ostrava is one of duality - failure and triumph, celebration and mourning, isolation and family. Taking inspiration from the likes of Radiohead as much as any metal act; SNOW BURIAL craft polished songs with the whirring machinery hidden just below the surface. Their blend of melody and aggression delivers a sound that dredges the depths of doom and sludge and marries it with rock ‘n’ roll sensibilities.

20 July - Minneapolis, MN @ Hexagon
08 August - Des Moines, IA @ TBA

We are so stoked to be part of Chicago's Doomed and Stoned festival! We're honored to share the stage with so many friends and bring some incredible metal to our fair city.
Oh, It's happening...
So stoked to be part of Deserfest London this year!
2018. We're coming back. We were always coming back.
We've been hard at work producing new videos for y'all and right now we are uploading the last of the Guitar Play Through series for VICTORY IN RUIN. In each one I play through the song describing what I am doing and what pedals are being used including some notes on the recording. In the future we will run some for bass and drums as well.
Thank you Pork Chop Express Records! Out now is our first official music video for the song "Victory In Ruin" of the LP VICTORY IN RUIN. We had a blast playing all these shows and can't wait to rip the stage up!

Victory In Ruin Teaser
Forged in late 2012 at a Shiner reunion show, SNOW BURIAL — featuring within its ranks former members of Hoss, Canyon, Doctor This Virus Is Silence — is a dynamic, post-metal collective dedicated to crafting aggressive, emotive and technical music. The band self-financed and released their debut full-length LP, Victory In Ruin in February of 2016, and two EPs entitled Oxblood Siren and Oxblood Tides in 2014. All the while they delved deep into the heart of the Windy City’s music scene sharing bills with the likes of Black Fast, Aseethe and The Swan King. Over the next few years SNOW BURIAL honed their skills and sound through multiple Midwest tours playing alongside the likes of The Gorge, Zebras and Northless.
SNOW BURIAL draws from a variety of influences, most notably the Melvins, Converge, and Cult Of Luna, to create their own unique voice and tone; a dark but colorful soundscape born by a progressive and fearless trio of musicians.
Victory In Ruin is out on CD, digitally and 150-gram vinyl. For orders go to:
