Ritualistic doom practitioners, DARK BUDDHA RISING, are Neurot Recordings’ latest signees. Hailing from Finland and with four albums already under their belt (most recently 2013’s Dakhmandal), DARK BUDDHA RISING conjures psychedelic sprawling space jams made up of expansive yet concentrated bellows of decaying distortion and broken-signal analog bleeps, cannoning across antimatter, and presented with staggering finesse.
Comments the band of their new home on Neurot: “We are more than honored to be a part of the Neurot family. Their music has torn wounds so deep, they still bleed the black blood of inspiration. We share the profound principle towards music as necessity of our existence in this universe. To proceed into the last cycle of the Ennealogy with Neurot Recordings is a predestined path to spread the art of black psychedelia.”
Adds Neurot Recordings’ Steve Von Till: “DARK BUDDHA RISING are one of the darkest, trance-inducing bands I have ever witnessed. Neurosis was lucky enough to play several shows with them last year and each night I was completely hypnotized. This is true ritual music that should not be taken lightly. This is a deep, introspective conjuring of those aspects of ourselves that are uncomfortable to come face to face with, but necessary if we are to grow. We feel very lucky to be able to work with them on their next sonic rite.”
DARK BUDDHA RISING will be touring Europe later his month with Mr. Peter Hayden. The Archmandal Tour will commences on April 19th and traverse eight cities. The band will also appear at this year’s Roskilde Festival in Denmark. See confirmed dates below.
