Burning Love “Songs for Burning Lovers” LP/CD

To hype this as the new CURSED or LEFT FOR DEAD is dishonest. BURNING LOVE are more like the OUR FATHER side of the make up of the previous bands equation. OUR FATHER is a local band that loves the heavy rockin’ chunky riff riding extension of punk that has become the rage since redneck rock became a regular feature in punk. You know back in the days of TURBONEGRO and NASHVILLE PUSSY. Well the band are self-proclaimed fans of KYUSS. Their music hits you like later period FLAG meets TURBONEGRO. This is the follow up to the “Don’t Ever Change” ep that came out on Deranged earlier this year and makes this BURNING LOVE’s third official release, but their first official full length. I haven’t heard the other two recordings, but they did play on the radio show before any of that and they had the demo at the time. This sounds like a more polished version of the demo with more clever wittisisms from Colohon. Titles like “Morning After Party” and “Alien vs. Creditor” get one thinking long after the word play, which has always been Chris’ strength. I am glad they play to this strength. The songs found on this release are:

1. Destroyer of Worlds
2. Don't Ever Change
3. Momento Mori
4. Gain
5. Curse Breaker
6. Miserable Sound
7. High Speed Wires
8. Alien vs. Creditor
9. Money Shots
10. Morning After Party
11. Piano
12. The Needle
13. Burning Love
