newhopecemetery I would also like to mention Oh Pennsylvania, Your Black Clouds Hang Low.

This entire album is a masterpiece and each track this man puts out is a perfect balance of melancholy ambience, melodies, and heavy riffs. The perfect blend of Drone, Shoegaze, and Doom. You really feel the emotion in this music and I will recommend PFB until my dying breath. Favorite track: Verse/Chorus/Verse.

  • Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    The Flenser presents a new deluxe vinyl edition of Planning For Burial’s debut full-length “Leaving.” The 2010 album is a depressing journey though isolation and sadness now recognized as a cult classic. Originally released by the legendary micro-imprint Enemies List Home Recordings, CD copies of Leaving have since become sought-after collector’s items. The Flenser is proud to offer a limited edition of Leaving in its intended analog format with updated artwork.

    Planning For Burial is the solo work of gloom prince Thom Wasluck, who has toured the DIY circuit with his one-man show extensively and become an unlikely sad-boy figurehead in the new-school gloom-gaze movement alongside labelmates Have a Nice Life. With heavy, dark shoegaze, ’80s goth, and ’90’s rock influences, Planning For Burial is hard to categorize and hard not to like. The project has released a slew of EPs and splits on various labels in the last five years, and shared the stage with a wide breadth of musical compatriots.

    This new 2020 box-set edition includes a never before heard recording called “Sorry For Your Loss” pressed on a 10inch record. It contains songs from the original time period that Thom remixed in 2018 and had mastered by Nicholas Wilbur in Summer 2019.

    An official digital versions of Sorry For Your Loss doesn't exist.

    This boxset includes:

    Deluxe two-piece heavy case-wrapped box.
    2x 12inch records in jacket (colored vinyl or black).
    10inch with inner printed sleeve (black vinyl).

Time isn't always good to us
(you can't feel this way forever) her body moves with the night sky like a demon with nowhere to go she roams confused
i can't remember the last time that i felt the sun on my face grey blankets the mourning grey blankets the evening do you remember what it felt like before the sadness consumed your heart?
we were only children things would not work out the way we wanted them too all the years that passed us by all the years of past all the years have passed us by all the years of past all i'm left with are the thoughts of what could have been
Does it scare you That this could be all that there is?
I still think of you enough to know that it's too much
dress me in my best suit i want to look good in my coffin thank you and goodnight farewell my friends
Leaving 13:17
