Ksyatriya Release New Album The Womb of Omeyocan and Split with Mind Reader

For those looking to add a bit of aural and conceptual complexity to their day, I humbly submit The Womb of Omeyocan by Malaysian outfit Ksyatriya. The album, already plenty complicated, is out as one of three new interrelated offerings. The other two are a split with Mind Reader and a new Mind Reader standalone LP. I haven’t even had the chance to dig into the split or the Mind Reader album yet, but The Womb of Omeyocan is wild and all over the place and progressive as hell and executed with energy and atmosphere alike. Its production is up front and vital and its tones vary from spacious to raw and driving. Even its most ambient moments seem heavy in more than just a moody way, and when they get down to the big rolling droneout in the 17-minute finale, you’ll also feel like you’ve passed through the gates of some mythical palace.

Cool stuff? Yeah, it is. Glad you asked.

It’s streaming now. I humbly suggest you partake:

‘The Womb of Omeyocan’ is the 2nd full-length album from experimental doom metal act Ksyatriya and marks the band’s 4th overall release since their conception in 2013.

Their latest album encompasses an exploration into the principle of duality or dualism that exists within the individual and the collective in relationship to the external world and the cosmos. The album is inspired and thematically produced around ancient Aztec & Sumerian philosophy. This is with particular reference to Omeyocan – known as “the place of duality”, highest of the 13 heavens and dwelling place of the dualistic deity Ometeotl according to Aztec mythology. ‘The Womb of Omeyocan’ aims to penetrate the division, conflict and contradictory nature of the human being that sees itself as a separate entity from the totality that it is inherently a part of. It seeks to explore the structure of dualistic thought by bridging the gap between subject and object.
