Vajra's debut album Pleroma is a “unique experience” At times, you have the idea that you are listening to new material from Dead Can Dance but with Patti Smith as a singer or to the resurrection of Siouxie and the Banshees with a tabla added.

Vajra Welcomes the End of the B’ak’tun 13 and the beginning of the global shift in consciousness. To mark the occasion, members of Vajra will host a Mayan Apocalyptic party at The Knitting Factory in Brooklyn on Friday, December 21 beginning at 9pm. And the band has a lot to celebrate. After just one year, the band has generated a buzz from critics from around the globe. Here's what some are saying:
Pete The RingMaster from the UK says about Vajra’s debut album, “Pleroma is one of the most inspirational and glorious albums to light up 2012. It is an album of aural majesty, a beautifully crafted and emotionally driven piece of wonder, which wraps tender and mesmeric yet evocative arms around the thoughts and senses. It is a release with a background as full as the fiery sounds which ignite the passions within….” (Pete The RingMaster Review in association with Reputation Radio Show)
Lords of Metal from The Netherlands cites Pleroma as a “unique experience” At times, you have the idea that you are listening to new material from Dead Can Dance but with Patti Smith as a singer or to the resurrection of Siouxie and the Banshees with a tabla added. (Lords of Metal E-Zine)
According to Arlequins from Italy, Vajra’s “sound is full, saturated, gothic and hypnotic sometimes on the edge of a mantra….” (Arlequins Webzine)
Gothic Magazine from Germany, applauds “Pleroma” for its “colorful meditative sonorities. It’s all about contrast, progressively painted songs. [It’s a] win, a very, very beautiful piece of music. Fantastic.” (Freya Kettner, Gothic Magazine)
Weaving Indian and rock elements, Vajra continues to capture audiences with their hauntingly dark, spectral melodies reflecting the shadowy tunnels of a tortured soul. “Spellbinding. That’s probably the best way to describe this astonishing debut release from Vajra,” says Nick Tate of Progression Magazine. This sure is a band that deserves your attention.
