This is the final offering before entering the new wave of the failed future from MMOB. Totem Three journeys from quiet Bardo womb choosing meditations and instrumental mantras to the delusional glee of Kali Yugafied Indian rock. Totem Three is the most diverse and heartfelt of the Totem trilogy. A steady pulsating musical mirror prison expressing the atrophy of our "Modern World" through no-age hallucinations of passionate and unfolding melodies. A blissfull mirage filled caravan with no destination pushing onward through a mercurial blue sanded desert between what is and what was. A place where disembodied nomadic djinn join in lament attempting to push through the cell phone interference with a message of no return. Culminating finally in the Totem Trilogy's finale the John Carpenter nodding synthetic 80's horror film decay and the utter realization of our "FAILED FUTURE".........."what is veiled, what was, what will be and what will never be, what will we do when we go from living to onlysurviving?".......TOTEM 3
