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.

    Here's one of the Temple Sleeper synth samples though.

    Come Down to Us and Hiders were "different for Burial". I think Temple Sleeper is great and, beyond the speed garage beat and rave synth-lines, quite typical of his sound.

    @triforceguy it does sound pretty similar to that old, relatively obscure (for BoC anyway) song tbh

    All these pitchfork kids pretending to like new burial who have never even heard of breakbeat hardcore, comparing it to fucking boards of canada of all things because they can't possibly wrap their minds around any music that didn't get BNM.

    "Come down to Us, Hiders? Yeah, deeper tunes." - Mate what> Both of those songs are not much more than a year old. If you're using those tunes as examples of "older" stuff, they aren't old. If you're arguing that these tunes aren't deep compared to his earlier stuff, you're wrong. "Rival Dealer" is easily the most deep, intimate and honest work he's put out.

    i think temple sleeper is brilliant. really deep, with all typical burial elements and yet sounds like early 90s rave at times. the synth arp in the first part may put some people off as too cheesy, but i actually find it quite enjoyable in a klaus schulze/john carpenter sort of way. i guess especially with burial's music, it's easy to get trapped up in a cage of expectations and let your disposition to it spoil the enjoyment. but the kind of attention you pay to anything determines what you find imo.

    I understand that people would dislike Temple Sleeper. Personally I really like it, and the comparison with King of Carnival is spot on!

    I can't help but compare the new track to King of Carnival by Boards of Canada. Sounds pretty good to me but I can understand people disliking it at the same time, very different for Burial.
