TRACK PREMIERE: Dayton, Ohio sludge trio Maharaja steamroller their peers with heavyweight juggernaut "Blood Moon"

Maharaja are a three piece sludge metal band from the post industrial wasteland of Dayton, Ohio. They are proud to announce that they will release their debut album, “Kali Yuga” on September 22nd 2017 

After spending the better part of the past 3 years touring since their inception in 2014, the band excitedly entered the studio with engineer Jacob Wright (Big Deal America), with full intent of capturing their live onslaught on tape. The band believes they have done so and the results are sure to please metal fans of all genres. The album title, “Kali Yuga”, is Sanskrit (a philosophical language of Hinduism) for the “age of destruction” and the band does little to disappoint those expecting a visceral and figurative representation of demonic destruction. Maharaja has perfected their own wall of sound by way of lead vocalist and bassist Eric Bluebaum's fuzzed out tone, stacked with Angus Burkhardt’s guitars that doom’n’ shred, and drums that are as quick to drop a blast beat as they are to groove you to death courtesy of drummer and vocalist Zack Mangold “Our intent is to break amps, disorient, and make people throw up” Bluebaum says.

Kali Yuga” begins with the blistering, brooding, and insanely heavy “Blood Moon” and today we been tasked with debuting this heavy weight juggernaut for your listening pleasure and you can check it out below.
