Time To Burn - Is.Land (2007)

Full Length, Basement Apes
October 2007



Region: France
Genre: Atmospheric Sludge


Time to Burn are fairly unknown and very unactive presently but their only full-length Is.Land is unlike much in the blend of genres it hovers around. A highly recommended overlooked record that is only comparable to maybe Tesa due to it's perfect genre straddling and hypnotic atmosphere.
