Ak'chamel, The Giver Of Illness: Totemist LP
First vinyl release of Ak'chamel, The Giver Of Illness after a prolific cassette discography, The Totemist is a deep psychedelic album hinted by mysticism which reminds the best hours of the free-minded 1960s rock.
A shamanic album written and recorded in a ghost-town in the Chihuahuan Desert in far West Texas -- a place where the dead outnumber the living. Various overdubs and field recordings were captured in the historic Terlingua Cemetery, an ancient burial ground filled with small grottoes and graves made of sticks and stones. This being the final resting place for miners who succumbed from illnesses derived from the toxic rare-earth element known as mercury.
Ak'chamel, The Giver of Illness is an enigmatic duo from a border state. Fourth world post-colonial cultural cannibalists circumcising the foreskin of enlightenment. Performing in homemade costumes and masks, they have played festivals in various cities around the US gaining international attention from Vice, The Wire, Tiny Mix Tapes, Consequence of Sound, and more.
