Album Review

Burning Image – “Fantasma” – [Alternative Tentacles]

ophelia necro   7/12/2009   A Library, CD

Often thought of as America’s equivalent to England’s Bauhaus (to me they resemble Christian Death more closely than Bauhaus). Burning Image came out of Bakersfield, California during the 80s. The music scene in California at the time was heavily dominated by punk rock but Burning Image stood out with it’s death rock dare I say “goth” approach. This is their first album in 20 years. 10 tracks of gloomy and doomy layerings of heavy experimental guitar sounds inspired by life during wartime and economic collapse on a global level. Moe Adame and Tony Boranno on vox and guitar, Paul Burch on drums and Anthony Leyva on bass.
