Biography

There are multiple artists with the name Burial:

1) Burial is an electronic musician from south London. His debut album was released in 2006 to critical acclaim. The Wire magazine named it their album of the year and it came fifth in the Mixmag 2006 Album of the Year list.
On Friday, September 28th 2007, a new Burial album was announced, and Untrue was released 6 weeks later on November 5th.

Although both albums have been met with much critical acclaim, Burial remained anonymous until August 2008, stating in a past interview that “only five people know I make tunes”.
In February 2008, The Independent reported that Burial was an alumnus of south London’s Elliott School named William Bevan (another alumnus, Hot Chip’s Joe Goddard, said in 2006 that Burial was in the year above him). The school’s alumni also include Kieran Hebden aka Four Tet, with whom Bevan has collaborated. William Bevan is also the name of a funeral directors located in Ross-on-Wye, England.

2) Burial is a band from The Netherlands. They released a downloadable album, Relinquished Souls at their website.

3) Burial is a hardcore punk band from Germany. They mix the sounds of early American hardcore with a definite dose of Japanese hardcore and Japanese burning spirits.

    "I used to pretend Music is Math, Turquoise Hexagon Sun, The Beach at Redpoint and Kaini Industries contain some elusive nostalgic and magic qualities to them once, until I realized they're "literal shit [2]". Also, Aquarius is the stuff of n00bs, possibly the most retarded song I have ever heard, I don't get the praise." What a goddamn idiot. Not much else to say about I0000days. He's made similarly stupid comments in the past such as the unforgettable classic: "My one rule: music that isn't catchy is fake as shit." Possibly the most retarded comment I have ever read. For any Burial fans who are unfamiliar with Boards of Canada, do not let these unfounded criticisms put you off listening to their music. They have some similarities with Burial that you can most likely appreciate - but note that most of BoC's music is getting quite old and that it is of a different genre and is by no means the same type of music.

    How dare anyone diss BoC. I thought you Burial fans would be like-minded people. [2] ... though Burial's music is sublime.

    Хуйня ваш дабстеп, который делают по заезженной схеме. Из него уже всё выкачали, что могли. С burial, как мне кажется, лучше всего начинать знакомство с жанром - наиболее доступная форма дабстепа в ранних релизах.

    I'd pick any Burial song over BoC's discography any time of the week. I used to pretend Music is Math, Turquoise Hexagon Sun, The Beach at Redpoint and Kaini Industries contain some elusive nostalgic and magic qualities to them once, until I realized they're "literal shit [2]". Also, Aquarius is the stuff of n00bs, possibly the most retarded song I have ever heard, I don't get the praise.
