VERY excited to announce that we’re playing the next Chicago doomed and Stoned fest! An insane list of bands are playing like Torche and Coven and we’ll be opening up day 2 of the fest. Can’t wait to see you there.


Guitar Play Through Video Series

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:
