Maharaja are a three-piece sludge metal band from the post industrial wasteland of Dayton, Ohio. They have perfected their own wall of sound by way of lead vocalist and bassist Eric Bluebaum’s fuzzed out tone, stacked with Angus Burkhardt’s guitars that doom’n’ shred, and drums that are as quick to drop a blast beat as they are to groove you to death courtesy of drummer and vocalist Zack Mangold.

In today’s society, it can sometimes feel like that there are no solutions for the problems of humanity. The unavoidable tidal wave of static seems it may doom all of us… yet a voice can still be heard. A voice of fear. A voice of anger. A voice unafraid to embrace the dark and churn it to some semblance of light.
This is the voice of CAZADOR.
One of the best kept secrets in the Boston underground scene, Cazador have been bringing their nervous brew of sludge, hardcore, and shoegaze to audiences in New England since 2015. Blending a thick and doom-esque atmosphere with the melody and urgency of post-metal and hardcore, this act has begun to emerge as one of the more unique and raw up-and-coming sludge acts in New England.
