Anamnesis is Liquidarlo Celuloides new studio album. The band has turned into a landmark in Limas underground, due to the synthesis of their multiple musical influences ranging from noise rock to dance music.
Anamnesis was produced by Killing Jokes Jaz Coleman, who saw them open KJs 2018 Lima show, and offered to produce their next recording. The result has been another explosive work from the Peruvian band, who have expanded their sonic palette into new terrains. Dissonant riffs and sturdy drumbeats, mighty heavy guitar grooves and walls of feedback are assembled into songs that convey the most rabid post-punk and freaky psychedelia, as well as flirting with dub elements. Hypnotic High Voltage Music is the expression with which their sound has been defined. Coleman himself collaborated on the recording by adding synthesizers, as well as singing and writing lyrics on Perversión, one of the albums highlights.
For this recording, Liquidarlo Celuloide was Juan Diego Capurro (keyboards/vocals), Efrén Castillo (guitars), Giancarlo Rebagliatti (bass guitar) and Alfonso Vargas (drums).
Anamnesis will be released digitally and on vinyl via Buh Records, with cover art by visual artist Juan Salas.
