The Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble- Patra (Saint Vitus cover)

Introducing The Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble, a project originally started by two european musicians, Bong-Ra and Telcosystems, to make new music for old silent films (last fm biography)… yeah, they’re not fans of “wild tomatoes” and the term “wake-n-bake” or anything like that.
TKDE is a blending of jazz with doom song structure and musical elements and instrumental themes akin to black metal and played as jazz. It’s a unique and interesting fusion that they pull off extraordinarily well. There is a revolving line-up of musicians that play in TKDE and their improv-jazz band is called The Mount Fuji Doomjazz Corporation, which is great also and definatly with a different enough sound a.d feel to warrent another name.
Patra, is a Saint Vitus cover, which is a doom band formed in 1980 and still playing. Honestly I’m not really that into Saint Vitus but they have a lot of people that really like them, kinda like Von. I prefer this cover over the original.
