Indian: I love this band. I have heard the new demo and it crushes. I believe INDIAN have set the new standard in doom metal. This video is not the new stuff. Just so you know.

London Calling

I met Pete and Catherine of the London, UK Doom Metal band Pombagira through my friends Lesbian who had toured in Europe together.
We spent two days together at Studio Witch Ape and captured some huge riffs of monumental size and girth as well as beauty that goes with sweet valleys of blues influenced lushness and simplicity. Pombagira are a couple of musicians who not only play intuitively together but are married and have made a deep commitment to what really matters to them in their lives. Pete tells me that he is very happy with the new recording and both he and Catherine agree that this was the funnest and most relaxed session they have had in a recording situation thus far. Pombagira also shared with me the intent of using this recording of "Dawn of the Black Sun" as their contribution to a split with Japan's Death Metal trio Coffins sometime in 2010.
