A decade after their album I, Finnish outfit Dark Buddha Rising are returning with their new album II on March 23.

For 10 years, the Finnish band has convened in the now-famous Wastement studio space; set below their home city of Tampere, Finland; to roil in the sounds of the underground, to meet dark spirits, to breathe in time with rhythmic pulses sent from the skies, the stars and the very dirt around them. From this thriving community a new commission has been born between Dark Buddha Rising and Oranssi Pazuzu who shall write and perform a new concept piece exclusively at Roadburn Festival 2018, this collaboration named Waste of Space Orchestra.

Tour Dates:

04/19 – Roadburn Festival, Tilburg, Holland (as Waste Of Space Orchestra)
06/06 – Saint Helen Festival 2018 – 1Feierwerk – München – Germany
08/15-18 – Dark Bombastic Evening – Ryma – Alba Iulia – Romania

The band also released a video trailer which you can watch below:



I have an unhealthy obsession with bad horror movies, the song Wanted Dead Or Alive and crap British game shows. I do this not because of the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle it affords me but more because it gives me an excuse to listen to bands that sound like hippos mating.
