Black Yo)))ga are a band from the United States that mixes vinysa style yoga mediation music with drone, noise, stoner metal, ambient, industrial and space doom metal and this is a review of their 2015 album "Asanas Ritual Vol. 1" which was released by Screaming Crow Records.
Field recordings start off the album along with some ambient style drones a few seconds later and you can also hear some voices being mixed in the background and after a few minutes the music also starts getting more atmospheric along with violins also making their presence known on the recording.
Ritualistic chants and mediation's are used in the music quite a bit bringing in more of an eastern and esoteric feeling to the bands musical style and there is also a great amount of clean playing and acoustic guitars also being added into the songs at times and most of the tracks are very long and epic in length.
Most of the music is very experimental and avant garde sounding and each song sounds different from each other and you can also hear some traces of industrial and noise being mixed in the background of the songs and as the album progresses more female vocals can be heard along with a brief use of aggressive screams and when guitars are brought into the music they bring in the heaviness of space doom and stoner metal and the screams also give the music a touch of black metal and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and the songs also stick to a very slow musical direction from beginning to ending of the recording.
Black Yo)))ga plays a musical style t hat takes mediation music and mixes it in with the atmosphere of ambient industrial, and noise and the heaviness of space doom and stoner metal along with a touch of black metal to create a musical style of their own and the production also sounds very professional.
In my opinion Black Yo)))ga are a very great sounding mixture of mediation music, done, ambient, industrial, noise, space doom and stoner metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Dark Places In Our Lives" "Negative Confession" and "Loopholes In The Universe". 8 out of 10.
