Ninth Moon Black, Kalyug: an introduction

back cover of NMB's Kalyug
On a cynical day, which could be any given day, it seems that life, human life, is going from bad to worse. Do you feel it? Its in the air we breath, the water we drink, the soil we feed ourselves from, all polluted. It seems that western civilization has been on a downward trajectory, a decline which continues to accelerate along with the pace of technology. From the beginning of our time, of what we know of recorded time, it has been a struggle of forces to say the least. Harmony and Utopian ideals are commonly thought of as simplistic and utterly naive. Which brings me to an interesting and apropos point, since according to the Vedas, all of known human history has occurred in the period of time known as Kali Yuga.

The work of Ninth Moon Black (NMB) and their album: Kalyug, aims at addressing the above issues of a time of decline. Of course, according to some theorists, it must get worse before it gets better. This brief blog post introduces what I feel is an exciting project, which combines instrumental explorations with radical archeological understandings, each seated in the teachings of the Rig Vedas. 

Kalyug is Ninth Moon Black 1st EP, as well as a planned response to the work of Michael Cremo. And because of the depth of their combined work, we feel that much back ground is in order.

Here is what you can look forward to:
                                                           Part I: An Overview of Vedic Time
                                                           Part II: Michael Cremo and radical archeology
                                                           Part III: Ninth Black Moon and Kalyug

Of course, this is just an overview.
Part III, is planned to be broken up in to a four part journey that takes you along with each track of what may prove to be an important work, and the rise of a very important band.
