This is another review of a recording from Ak'chamel The Giver Of Illness with the musical style this time around being experimental mixed with folk rock, punk and industrial and the cassette is called "Old Norse Mara" and was released by Chaos Of The Stars.
The cassette starts off with acoustic guitars and 60's psychedelic sound effects and later on haunting vocals are added into the music as well as people voices in the background, and as the album moves on it adds in tribal drum b eats and ritualistic chanting as well as adding in experimental and avant garde elements.
As the album progresses it starts utilizing more primitive Pagan elements to create a sound only they can call their own and once bass guitars are added in the music gets more diverse and has the 60's feeling to it as well as adding garage and punk elements later on with some melodic guitar leads as well as mixing in some fast guitar playing.
When we start getting closer to the end industrial is mixed in with psychedelic as well as some deep demonic vocals and the sound that is being very created is very original and cannot be compared to any bands and you can also hear pagan style flutes being brought into the mix.
Song themes cover Occultism and Witchcraft, while the production has a very dark, raw and primitive sound while you can still hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording as well as the last song being very long and epic in length.
In my opinion this is another great sounding cassette from Ak'chamel The Giver Of Illness and if you are a fan of psychedelic and experimental music, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Death Was On You From The Moment Of Birth" "Mountain Of The Sleeping Lady" and "The Other Side Of The Dark Waters". RECOMMENDED BUY.
