Yamantaka // Sonic Titan are a music collective from Montreal. They bill themselves as a Black Metal band. The two leads, Alaska B and Ruby Atwood, identify themselves as practicing Buddhists. Here’s a recent article about them: http://www.avclub.com/toronto/articles/alaska-b-and-ruby-atwood-of-yamantaka-sonic-titan,68404/
Speaking of Buddhist Metal (?), don’t forget Affinity in Toronto, with Sean Hillman on drums. Sean is a former Gelugpa monk, currently a Buddhist scholar at the University of Toronto, and publisher of the blog, http://www.torontobuddhistethics.blogspot.com/.
