A climax community is “a biological community of plants and animals which, through the process of ecological succession – the development of vegetation in an area over time – has reached a steady state,” says good old Wikipedia. Climax Community is a record by DARSOMBRA, built and hewn from time, practice, and re-arrangement of one’s life for the love of creative journey to other planets through music.
Following a multitude of releases on labels including At A Loss, Public Guilt and Underradar, in addition to self-released recordings, Maryland’s ultra-eclectic transcendental/drone rock unit DARSOMBRA have signed with Germany’s Exile On Mainstream for the release of their new full-length album, Climax Community. Set for North American release on October 16th, the three tracks on Climax Community traverse forty five minutes of DARSOMBRA‘s unique, slow-building, organic transcendental rock, and explore realms of the musical cosmos not present on their previous releases. Both LP and CD versions of Climax Community will be released with a direct link to the visual part of this project which shall be watched while listening to the album.
