Dakhma is a three piece band from Grand Rapids, Michigan who formed in early 2014, from the looks of things.  Dakhma play a killer style of music that incorporates elements of dark, filthy, raw, and ultra heavy style of music that incorporates elements of black metal, punk, grindcore, and crust within their sound.  Dakhma's sound is accentuated by scathing female vocals and eerily dark atmospheric passages that give the band's music a dark and sinister vibe.  Since their inception in 2014, Dakhma have released a seven song EP in March of 2014, a two song EP in February of 2015,  a four song LP titled Raze in January of 2016, a two song LP titled Suna Kulto in January of 2017, and a split 7" with Pilori in June of 2018.  Hamakar Atonement is the band's latest full-length LP, which was released via Iron Bonehead Productions on September 5th, 2018.  On Hamakar Atonement, Dakhma offer up seven tracks of blackened and punk-infused black metal, doom, and crust.  Overall, Hamakar Atonement makes for an amazing listen.  Highly recommended!  Enjoy!

Hi, sorry but this review is a mess. The album you're reviewing is by the Swiss band Dakhma, not from the U.S. a basic metal-archives search or simple google search would have made this information readily available to you - there are a few bands using this name, ll with very different sounds. Please conduct at least some form of research on the music you review lest you embarass yourself...? Thanks
