Dark Buddha Rising
the finnish psych/black metal band return with an unholy ooze of pounding grooves and hateful rage – lovely.
On the surface, the band emits the blackest of psychedelia; deep down, theirs are sounds forged in the blue fires of the ancients; exhalations of gods, goddesses and demons alike. ‘II’ sees Dark Buddha Rising return to its purest incarnation: a three-piece rhythm section; J.Ramanen on drums, P. Ramanen on bass and V. Ajomo on guitar; and with J. Saarivuori on synths and M. Neuman on main vocals. For 10 years, Finnish band Dark Buddha Rising has convened in the now-famous Wastement; set below their home city of Tampere, Finland; to roil in the sounds of the underground, to meet dark spirits, to breathe in time with rhythmic pulses sent from the skies, the stars and the very dirt around them.
