Yamantaka // Sonic Titan, a Noh-Wave prog collective, a black-and-white (and sometimes red) theatre company, an operatic psych cult, and the speculative prophets of humanity’s impending doom. Above it all, though, they’re a thunderous rock band, and on their third album, DIRT, they’re the heaviest they’ve ever been.

They’ve added singer Joanna Delos Reyes, guitarist Hiroki Tanaka and bassist Brandon Lim, who, along with the towering drums of leader/artist Alaska B, singer/theatre artist Ange Loft and keyboardist Brendan Swanson, turn the group into an engine of sound. 

DIRT is the band’s first album since 2013’s UZU, their second to be shortlisted for the Polaris Prize as one of the best Canadian albums of the year. The album was conceived as the soundtrack for an unreleased Haudenosaunee and Buddhist themed Anime produced in 1987.
