This is the website of the band Alchemeleon. If you know Alchemeleon and like their music, you can buy or download their debut album for free. If you don't know Alchemeleon, there's some info here for you as well. If you're lost on the web and ended up here on accident, don't fret, this is one of the better websites to stumble upon.
Some say that the American Midwest is the center of the cultural universe. It's the only place in the world that doesn't have an "accent", it has no real culture or history of its own so it just borrows or buys the practices of others, and so few things of signifigance occur there ( no earthquakes, volcanos, hurricanes, riots, etc) that it can only witness events unfolding across the rest of the world. This is the spawning ground for the musical experiment that is Alchemeleon.
Alchemy is the practice of taking crude materials and working them into something of greater value. Whether that be turning lead into gold or purifying the body into spirit. Chamleons are reptiles known for their ability to camouflage themselves in any environment and see in multiple directions at once. Alchemeleon is a band that seeks to take all the music that has been made to date and take it further, killing genres where necessary and celebrating possibilities at all times.
(All writers are propagandists. If words are lies, written words must be false lies, silent movies without the visuals.)
Alchemeleon believes in having no beliefs. They wish to artificially recreate music that is real, unlike the completely synthetic material that adorns the Billboard top 9,000. They subscribe to the theory that all theories are wrong. They doubt doubting and question questioning. They also don't believe in fiat currency but would most certanly prefer you buy their album.
Unfortunately. Alchemeleon is not able to tour at present, but they are currently working on a second album that will be roadable.
