Rudra’s 8th album, Enemy of Duality, will be unleashed on the 10th of November 2016

Rudra - Enemy of Duality

Rudra’s 8th album, Enemy of Duality, will be unleashed on the 10th of November 2016 through Transcending Obscurity. This time the band explores 8 verses from the sanskrit text 'Mandukya Karika’ through 8 songs. This album is also a return to the Rudra’s signature Vedic metal fusing traditional Indian instrumentation such as the sitar, flute, tabla and even a didgeridoo.

The album artwork presents the Trident or a Trishula with a Damaru (in Indian Drum) tied to the rod. The three spears represent the three states of Waking, Dream and Deep Sleep. The rod that holds the spears are connected the three spears and yet it is apart from it. And hence it represents the fourth state of pervasive Consciousness called Turiya. The Damaru which creates sound and hence represents the very Mandukya Upanishad which uses the sound OM to present the four states. The artwork presents the primary theme of the Mandukya Karika which is Turiya.
