Dark Buddha Rising are on their European tour supporting their recent releases, including the remastered albums Ritual IX (2008), Entheomorphosis (2009), and Abyssolute Transfinite (2011) now available more widely on all formats, and as part of a limited seven-LP vinyl box set titled The Black Trilogy for Svart, and their transformative EP II on Neurot Recordings.
Ominous riffing, colossal doom, swirling psychedelia, repetition, repetition, repetition. The recipe is carved in stone, yet it leads to different endings – or bottomless shafts. Tension, tension, tension, lunacy. Neurot released Dark Buddha Rising’s fifth studio album, ‘Inversum’, in September 2015. If ‘Inversum’ is your maiden voyage with the Finnish group I’d be willing to exchange my soul in order to hear the Buddha’s offering with virgin ears. I only have one advice to give: Hold tight. The winds are gathering.Jukka Hätinen, freelance editor
