A post-black metal/ post-metal outfit hailing from Limuru in Kenya. The artists that make up the band are at the epicentre of the eclectic metal scene in Kenya. The lead singer is currently on tour in Europe with his side project Duma. In 2017 the band topped the African Heavy Metal charts with their single “Pokea Uponyaji.” The rest of the members tend double duty in other bands or work as full-time professionals.
The band combines diverse musical styles through a metal vehicle. The band explores stark contrasts of spiritual music and ambiance with brutal extreme metal. The Seeds of Datura is known equally as being a kind of folk-metal band as well as a death metal outfit, but those are just 2 inflections they traverse to draw the attention of the listener deeply in.

They are a six piece band made up of: Mordecai Ogayo (Bass) Martin Kanja (Lead Vocals) Wilson Muia (Guitar) Lawrence Muchemi (Drums/Vocals) Rauf Sultan (Lead Guitar) and Daniel Kobimbo (clean vocals).
