Dhidalah: Threshold LP
Since 2013, Dhidalah has hailed from the Tokyo underground as a space rock power trio. The band name derives from the Japanese legend of the Giant Gods — known as the creaters of mountains, lakes and islands. Dhidalah plays improvisational music performances inspired by various genres from stoner/doom to kraut rock. Their first EP " No Water " was released by Guruguru Brain in 2017. The EP was internationally acclaimed, resulting in 2 shows at the 2018 Roadburn Festival as their first European debut. Dhidalah will release their first album in fall 2019, influenced by all aspects of outer space. They will be touring Europe and introducing these new songs. Dhidalah is comprised of Guitarist Ikuma Kawabe (ex Church of Misery), bassist/vo Kazu Gotoh and Robin (ex Minami Deutsch) who has joined as their new drummer. This is their first full-length record. With this record, they added a krautrock influence to their Eastern doom sounds. The band leader Gotoh says that the concept is about the evolution of the human race and the beginning of the universe. For fans of Ashra Tempel, Earthless, and Fuzz/Echo pedals.
