DYMBUR is an Indian experimental metal band, formed in Shillong, Meghalaya in February 2012.
“DYMBUR” is a word of KHASI origin that translates into English as “Fig Tree”. The KHASI people are an indigenous tribe, who live in the State of Meghalaya which is in the north eastern part of India. The word DYMBUR is taken from “The Parable of the Barren Fig Tree” found in the Bible. It is about a fig tree which does not produce fruit.
THE BAND WAS BORN AS A SOLO PROJECT OF THE DRUMMER FLAVIO BUT AFTER MANY YEARS COMPOSING SONGS HE DECIDED TO CREATE A TRUE BAND AND PLAY MUSIC IN FRONT OF PEOPLE. SO WE FORMED IN AUGUST 2013 WITH STEFANO AT BASS AND DAVIDE AND LUCA AT GUITARS. WE WERE INITIALLY INSTRUMENTAL AND MADE A FEW SHOWS BUT WE NEEDED A SINGER.
Our music is emotional and dreamlike melancholia sprung from an aggressive and hard root. What makes us unique, apart from innovative guitar playing and song writing, is the organic and lifelike sonic picture, which diverges from yesterday’s programmed and numbingly perfect production ideal.
On December 3rd, we will release our debut EP ”Karmanjakah EP”, promising melancholic harmonies, hard riffs, mellotrone, progressive arrangement and an honest production.
