"Love the hollow drum sound to introduce that John Bonham odd beat. Love the guitar crunch sound. 1:19 is a cool little coyote howl that I can dig. The music reminds me of like Neil Young's Rust never Sleeps combined with like an Alice In Chains. Makes me wanna go smoke another pack of cigs haha. The album cover is sick btw. Good work here mate!

“All Alone was written in a period of my life when I was single after a long relationship and enjoyed my life as a single man not wanting a relationship and generally enjoying what single life means. I don’t mean running after one night stands. My life was really set up to get lost in movies, art, friends, sports and looking after myself generally, to improve myself for better, for soul, body and mind. It was a conformable way of life in London as all I had to look after was me. London helps in that to make the most out of a single. I noticed that I wasn’t the only one who enjoyed this way of life in London.

From London, alt-punk and metal band The Buddha Pests are making quite the name! With multiple releases and having just returned from their UK tour, their sound is being compared to that of The Pixies, Queens of the Stoneage, and Joy Division. In 2006, singer-songwriter Pete Derzbach started the project. Atilla Pal on bass and occasionally vocals, as well as Simon Du Toit on vocals, are currently featured. The Buddha Pests are here to bring an exciting mix of psychedelic and heavy rock that stimulates and delights the imagination.

The Buddha Pests' biography :

Steeped in a heady intoxicating mix of punk-rock metal psychedelica, The Buddha Pests are here to take your imagination to exciting new places.

The project was conceived in 2006 by singer songwriter Peter Derzbach and since then the band has enjoyed British and European tours with additional successful single, EP and album releases. These releases have been in many formats, including Vanilla Spoon EP on vinyl.

Many international musicians have played with The Buddha Pests over the years, bringing with them their diverse influences and enhancing the colourful soundscape. Originally featuring since 2016 Atilla Pal on bass and ocassional vocals, and since 2018 Simon Du Toit on additional vocals, the current band's members, besides the leader Peter Derzbach, are Nicola SIMULA on bass and Alessandro FARRONATO on guitar (since September 2020) and Andrew WEBB on drums (since November 2020).

With subversive lyrics floating on soundwaves of rich guitar and bass, listeners will be swept out to the auditory land of The Buddha Pests, only to be swallowed whole by a ferocious metal element fuelled by powerful percussion. Their sound has been likened to The Pixies, Queens of the Stoneage, early Radiohead, Foo Fighters, System of a Down, Green Day, Joy Division and The Yeah Yeah Yeahs.

In 2012 The Buddha Pests twice toured central/eastern Europe and Italy and released a debut video for the single "Why We Have to Go".

Having international roots and recognition, The Buddha Pests have just returned from their UK tour and are currently working on their latest and greatest album.

We are The Buddha Pests, an alt-punk, alt-metal band from London.
