Burst

For many, Burst was an unknown name when Origo, er, burst onto the scene in 2005. In reality this Swedish band has been around for awhile, with several lesser-known releases recorded before their Relapse debut Prey On Life in 2003. Origo might loosely be described as a cross between Mastodon and Isis, with the general pace more like the former and the dynamics and moods often borrowing from the latter. Save a few clean moments, the vocals are clearly hardcore-influenced, which at times fit perfectly though at other times they seem a bit heavyhanded for the music beneath. Vocal quibbles aside, Origo is a surprisingly dynamic album, complex yet focused, diverse yet cohesive, very much deserving of the critical praise it has received since its release. The 2008 followup, Lazarus Bird, was even more adventurous, firmly establishing the band as a leader rather than a follower.

After over a decade in the business, Burst announced their plans to retire in July 2009, and played their farewell show on December 18.
