Maharaja
Kali Yuga
Company: Independent
Release: 2017
Genre: Doom/Stoner
Reviewer: David Loveless
Published: 11/2/2017

Ultra heavy sludge metal debut from Ohio-based Maharaja
COMMENTS:
Maharaja's debut album, 'Kali Yuga' is quite an impressive one. A stoner/sludge band that goes beyond the realm of slowness and doom, they add elements of psychedelic, extreme metal, and even punk to make 'Kali Yuga' a standout album amongst the masses. My favorite tracks include 'Free Choice', 'Ouroboros', and 'Black Magiq Carpet Ride'. Although the production is not perfect, the instruments sound amazing, while the vocals seemed to be a little spacey and drowned out. The parts with the harsher vocals would be much better if they were louder in the mix. At any rate, this is a debut to be proud of and should be checked out by all metal heads.
RECOMMENDED FOR FANS OF:
Eyehategod, Kylesa, Electric Wizard, Yob
