The video has been viewed almost 40.000 times and the band sold 350 copies of their single!
Directly after the release of the single the band started writing new songs for the first full album. “Nightmares” was recorded in November/December 2015 at the “Dirty Bird Studio” in Hoogeveen and produced/mixed by Fredde Kadeth (Massive Assault, Ear Danger, Burning Hatred). BURNING was influenced by bands such as Black Sabbath (Ozzy era), Iron Maiden and Ghost but have their own unique fresh sound. Dutch thriller author Bronja Hoffschlag seemed to be a huge fan of the band and offered to write some lyrics for the album. She ended up writing the lyrics for no less than 3 songs!
There was serious interest from well-known metal record labels but BURNING decided to release the album on their own “Burn” label, in combination with a fantastic distribution deal with Crazy Diamond/Tonefloat Records (Dutch Steel 3lp box, Sad Iron)
The official release party will take place on the 25th of March in the city of Stadskanaal, Holland at Nightlife The Fox. The youngsters of BLACK SHUCK will support BURNING and the legendary New Wave Of British Heavy Metal band TYGERS OF PAN TANG will headline the show.
The album will be released on both lp and cd and will be in stores the first week of april and of course available at the release party. The album can also be pre ordered at the Facebook page of the band.
