Yamantaka // Sonic Titan’s explosive musical fusion comes to life

Fantastic musicianship, exploration, Buddhist themes, theatrics…. Yamantaka // Sonic Titan — self-described as a “psychedelic noh-wave opera group fusing noise, metal, pop and folk music into a multidisciplinary hyper-orientalist cesspool of ‘east’ meets ‘west’ — were fantastic at their Halifax Pop Explosion performance this past Friday night. See more photos of the band on our Facebook page, and hear them for yourself at: http://yamantakasonictitan.bandcamp.com/.

This pre-Explosion article about the band, from The Coast, is worth your time, too. And watch for more in our coming look at the many new and adventurous forms that Buddhism-inspired music is taking, in our March 2013 magazine.
