DARK BUDDHA RISING to release “The Black Trilogy”


”I exhaled and the skies cleared, revealing the stars. And then, from a distant event horizon arose the black sun. Rays of black light illuminated pyramid structures in the desert, as I watched hovering above. Carved in the monolithic stones were alien symbols that became decrypted before my eyes. And the I became the eye, the self dissolved in the light. Sun worshippers emerged from the sands shifting in the solar wind that carried their voice.”

Eleven years have passed since Dark Buddha Rising‘s first foray into the black arts of psychedelia at the Wastement rehearsal space. Since the beginning, the band have walked a path decidedly their very own, regardless of outside influence. Before their more widely available albums on Svart and Neurot Recordings, the band released three double LPs on their own label Post-RBMM. Limited to small vinyl pressings only, these works were quickly consumed by the underground, making them valuable collector’s items today.

In 2017, on their 10th anniversary, the band, together with Svart Records, embarked on a mission to finally make these three albums available to a wider audience. The albums – Ritual IX (2008), Entheomorphosis (2009), and Abyssolute Transfinite (2011) – will be available on CD, double vinyl, and via digital platforms. The three will also be released as a limited seven-LP vinyl box set titled The Black Trilogy, which will also be the only way to get hold of the band’s 2007 demo. All recordings have been remastered at Virtalähde Studios. The release date for all has been set for October 26ththrough Svart Records.

Dark Buddha Rising are embarking on an autumn tour of Europe in November, and another tour from the end of March to mid-April in 2019; dates after the jump. A remastered version of “Ashtakra I,” from Abyssolute Transfinite, can be heard HERE at Svart‘s Soundcloud.
