Dead Skeletons – Om Mani Peme HungBy Craig Smith • Jan 31st, 2012 • Category: Webcut of the Week
The Too Pure Singles Club returns in 2012 with a bang (or is that a rattle) with the sound of Icelandic mantra magicians Dead Skeletons. For the uninitiated, Dead Skeletons came into existence in 2008 when band member Jon Saamunder needed music for an art installation in the Reykjavik Art Museum. Enlisting the help of friends Henrik Bjornsson and Ryan Carlson Van Kriedt the trio penned the songs which would eventually become the Dead Magick album, a 72 minute, 12 song journey through space and time, life and death. “Om Mani Peme Hung” is the sound of Neu! on a meditation retreat engaging in a spiritual hypno-chant. I wouldn’t advise watching this clip under the influence as the apocalyptic dudes holding swastika shields may freak you out. Now repeat after me… Om Mani Peme Hung, Om Mani Peme Hung, Om Mani Peme Hung… Check out the Too Pure Singles Club website for more details on how to subscribe and pick up this 7″ single.
