We're proud to present you "Rodeo Massacre", avant-rock band ULAN BATOR's 6th album for the very first time on vinyl.
Entirely recorded in analog format during summer 2004 by Giacomo Fiorenza & Francesco Donatello at Alpha Debt studio in Bologna (IT), this album was then released on CD in January 2005 on 2 labels (Jestrai-IT and Rock Revolution-FR).
"Rodeo Massacre" met with success when two videos from the album were shown in heavy rotation on MTV Italy.
Out of print since a decade, the album is now being reissued and available for pre-order on a brand new vinyl edition. This will be a limited and numbered issue, starting with 300 copies and a maximum of 500 prints.
Professional vinyl mastering will be made and the artwork will look like the original one.
The pre-order campaign will last 35 days, and no further repress is guaranteed.
Don't miss the chance to grab your own copy!
Thanks for your support.

Wire Magazine (UK): "Ulan Bator’s music follows an eccentric orbit, while their power is usually kept simmering in reserve. The players investigate the borders of song structure.They build up enormous tension (...) they played a marathon three hour set with Faust early last year. Hard to imagine, given Ulan Bator's inherent sense of control: halting on the brink before complete freakout sets in is what makes the group so special"
Alternative Press (USA): "To say that this is the best rock music France has ever produced is to damn it with faint praise. This trio may be the only band from that oversauced nation to be worth a damn in a long time maybe since Metal Urbain or Magma (...) Call it musique concrete paved with irreverence.”
Les Inrockuptibles (Fr): "Préfigurant les secousses telluriques de Godspeed et consorts, ce groupe à la fois primitif et savant a libéré le rock hexagonal de ses chaînes. Ulan Bator réussit là où la plupart des groupes américains ont échoué".
