Staff review by
Confession time: I used to be unable to tolerate drone doom. For the longest time, I saw its musical formula as very unnecessarily bland, monotonous, and repetitive. But somehow, towards the end of last year, it all started to click with me. I began to see and appreciate the formulas of bands like Sunn O))), Om, and Nadja for what they were, even actively searching out more drone bands to listen to on my own time. And in that search, unquestionably one of the best bands I've come across is Finnish Dark Buddha Rising. The trio's unrelenting wall of sound has thus far crafted a hypnotic cloak of wonder over their entire discography, and Dakhmandal, their 2013 output, is certainly no exception.
