Dark Buddha Rising - Inversum (Neurot Recordings) 2015
The name of the band fits their sound perfectly. Dark Buddha Rising dwell deep in the darkest of the trances. Picture this guy, kind of a mysterious monk, hidden in a pitch-black dark cave, high in the mountains, going through some really profound stream of meditation, revisiting his every step, and doing it for a long, long time. Although their sound is introspective and warm, it might get one onto some very uncomfortable places at times – meaning one must be left with himself and his own demons in order to complete the crossing here. The album is a trip, a good and sometimes twisted one. The only think that gets a little weird here is that there seem to be two worlds struggling: one reminiscent of 60s/70s substance induced rock n roll psychedelia, and one other way more ancient and deep. Maybe there are some monks somewhere doing lsd and digging some Sleep, who knows.
