One of the greatest bands from the smog island and one of my personal faves 
has recently released their 4th album.
It has a title "The Disgrace".
It sounds fucking masssive. Having strong british industrial base (think of early Pitchshifter and Fudge Tunnel and Godflesh)  and american  noise-rock influences (16, Unsane and take best bands from AmRep, Sub Pop).
Also I need to mention that  Kunal (Superfi rec's. boss) entered the band in 2012 and I'm sure this is a good upgrade.
"This Disgrace" will be out in January 2013. Three mighty labels splits 500 copies of wax : British Superfi and Riot Season and French Swarm Of Nails
If you havn't heard this fabulous band yet - you should also check three previous albums too.

Release Info :

Art Of Burning Water were born out of the ‘white flats’ of Hanwell (W7) and the pre-gentrified homes of Hammersmith (W6) in West London in 2001. The sound of suburban alienation and misfit isolation forged an awkward visceral sound that was too punk for the metallers, too noisy for the arthouse crowd and too weird for seemingly everyone else. AOBW continue to plough their own furrow despite personal injury and often chronic disorganisation. with self-promotion taking a back seat to the importance of sound creation to combat the often ugly hardships of everyday living.
Like Slayer gone sludge, AOBW channel the prime noise-rock of vintage Zeni Geva and Godflesh with the more complex rhythmical riff obsessions of the Melvins, Keelhaul and mid-period Voivod. In saying that however, AOBW also adhere to the original punk philosophy of ‘anything goes’. There are no restrictions. Punk isn’t about Discharge (as good as they were and are), studded belts and crusty bum flaps. Punk is the heart to tell the narrow minded to get fucked.

“This Disgrace” continues the more spontaneous writing approach of third album “Love You Dead” with some emotionally draining dirge sections akin to a more budget “Children Of God”-era Swans, “What’s This For?” period Killing Joke as well as the “Souls At Zero” beatings of Neurosis. All subject to opinion of course. For fans of : Godflesh, Swans, Melvins, Unsane, Jesus Lizard, Mastodon etc etc
