Among The Rocks And Roots is Abdul Hakim-Bilal and Samuel Goff from Richmond, Virginia. They play an aggressive, long and winding style of Noise Rock rooted in ritualistic ideas of trance-induction. 'Raga' is their second full-length album out of a proposed trilogy that started with 'Samdura Garba Pathe' in 2015 and will end with 'Pariah'. According to a band's statement, this trilogy details the cumulative journey that both members have taken from dealing with issues that led up to a period of addiction for both of them. While their first album details how both of them got there, 'Raga' is now the anger, hatred and frustration of keeping up this journey through those issues and addiction. The lyrics deal with issues ranging from physical, mental and sexual abuse, sleep paralysis, racism, police brutality and isolation. 'Raga' is available in a very limited double vinyl edition and digital format through Purple Tape Pedigree on march 02,2018. This is some really distressed heavy and doomy world music exploring the darkest recesses of the soul. Absolutely amazing stuff.! Highly recommended.!!
