DARK BUDDHA RISING - Dakhmandal (DOUBLE CD Box Set)
Finland | Sludge/Doom
Finnish occult psychedelic drone doom metal group Dark Buddha Rising are drenched in deep mystery, with no biographical information available. Described by Roadburn Festival as "sprawling dirge of doom metal and myriad cryptic incantations luring the listener into a trance of doom-induced sensory depravation", the band have released three self-financed full length albums (Ritual IX, Entheomorphosis, Abyssolute Transfinite) on vinyl only. The time has come for the fourth Dark Buddha opus Dakhmandal, for which the band chose to employ the services of the eclectic Finnish label Svart Records. Dakhmandal, the new album of the drone metal necromancers can be described as oppressive and circular.
