The Mount Fuji Doomjazz Corporation
Surely one of the most epically named musical outfits in our store The Mount Fuji Doomjazz Corporation is the dark noisy alter ego of the genre-defining Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble.
The semi-improvised, dark, heavy, “sludgy” Corporation leaves all borders behind, focusing on mesmerizing, doom-ridden drones and melodies, combined with the melodies of the cello and saxophones.
Whilst all works by this cult outfit are essential listening our favorites would have to be Egor which opens with a recording taken from inside an elevator the band got stuck in on the way to a show in Russia.
Live at Roadburn is also one of our favorites and can be considered the most accessible of all their titles - it's deep throbbing basslines fit well in a progressive DJ set mixed with The Haxan Cloak or early Raime.
