Ritualistic doom band Dark Buddha Rising are Neurot Recordings’ latest captivating signees. Hailing from Finland and with four albums already under their belt (most recently 2013’s Dakhmandal), Dark Buddha Rising are of the highest caliber. Their psychedelic sprawling space jams are made up of expansive yet concentrated bellows of decaying distortion and broken-signal analogue bleeps, cannoning across antimatter, presented with staggering finesse.
Dark Buddha Rising have this to say about their new home, “We are more than honoured to be a part of the Neurot family. Their music has torn wounds so deep, that 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.”
Neurot Recordings added…”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.”
