9. Council of Nine – “Dakhma”
Council of Nine

Simon Heath: “Maximillian of Council of Nine arrived out of nowhere with his Tomb of Empires split submissions and quickly caught a fan following for his sad emotional texturing and harmonical composing. The debut album Dakhma is so hard to pin down conceptually, functioning instead as a backdrop for whatever you want it to be, be it deep space, sunken temples, or a drive through forest fires.”

“Dakhma” is the debut album for the one-man project Council of Nine aka Maximillian Olivier. Based in Redwood Valley (California, USA), he was previously known for his work on the “Tomb of Empires” (2014) split album which he recorded together with Foundation Hope, Alphaxone and Coph`antae Tryr.

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 2 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.

The donations are safely powered by Paypal.
