Mubla Na Thguob After owning this album for a long time I felt that I should come back to it and update my review. This is an experience that changes each time you listen to it. It seems like there's always something new to hear with each listen and it gets better as time goes on. I will highly recommend this. Favorite track: Psychonauts In The Forest.

PJD Whoa! I am very late to the party. I wish I had found this earlier but this will be in heavy rotation starting immediately. One of the tags is "shamanic", I second that. Favorite track: Dead Chants.

Electric Buddha WOW!! FDJ is right as usual this album is BRILLIANT!! My new favorite of 2014...maybe ever. Trippy, HEAVY, fuzzy, hypnotic, transcendent, spiritual, powerful music! Every track is amazing but Manitou's Mantra is a fuckin monster!! Great for a good run or trippin under the stars in the desert. Favorite track: Manitou's Mantra / Sleeping King.

FDJ OTEHI have created a soundtrack for an alien landscape with this stunningly beautiful mix of ambiance and brutality. The haunting mantra-like vocals give an almost spiritual feel to the music that compliment the arrangements superbly.
Brilliant!! Favorite track: Manitou's Mantra / Sleeping King.

"Dead Chant And Forbidden Melodies" it's a concept album written between 2012 and 2013.

"Otehi have never heard of the word Overkill as the amount of different noises and riffs will astound you. It is a heavy thunderous ride where experimentation is the main attraction here.
Otehi are masters of manipulating sounds, grooves, riffs, melodies, vocals and anything else they can get their hands on. The album makes you feel you are watching a legendary artist at work.
Dead Chants and Forbidden Melodies is a wonderful musical odyssey that will last long in the memory."
Steve Howe, The Sludgelord.
