Interview - Manes

Interview – Manes

Norwegian band Manes recently released “Slow Motion Death Sequence”, their fifth album. This is a band which has experienced various transformations and name changes since 1991, but whose music has always been unusual and on the edge. To find out what makes the band tick,.. Read More
Manes – Slow Motion Death Sequence (Debemur Morti)

Manes – Slow Motion Death Sequence (Debemur Morti)

To cut a long story short involving temporary releases, compilations and different band names, Manes are from Trondheim in Norway and thoroughly impressed me with their creative album “Be All End All” (2014). The trick lies in the moods and atmospheres of this essentially experimental.. Read More
Howling Sycamore – S/T (Prosthetic Records)

Howling Sycamore – S/T (Prosthetic Records)

Do sycamores howl? Well, seeing who is involved with this, they probably do. The name, which stuck out for me, was Davide Tiso of Ephel Duath. This told me to expect highly challenging, indeed weird musical patterns. But it’s not just about Davide Tiso. With.. Read More
Avatar – Avatar Country (Century Media)

Avatar – Avatar Country (Century Media)

Gothenburg’s Avatar describe themselves as “a dark, twisted circus sideshow that’s built around bombastically grooving melodic death n’ roll”. Now on their seventh album with a multitude of singles, a live pedigree and a larger than life persona, this album promised to be a bit.. Read More
Wobbler – From Silence to Somewhere (Karisma Records)

Wobbler – From Silence to Somewhere (Karisma Records)

The interesting thing about Norway’s Wobbler, whose fourth album this is, is that they push boundaries in the world of prog, yet their music is so recognisable. This, without doubt, is the charm of it. This prog that they peddle is of an older school.. Read More
Vulture Industries – Stranger Times (Season Of Mist)

Vulture Industries – Stranger Times (Season Of Mist)

There’s no denying that we are living in stranger times and can only thank all things within this chaotic era for music like this, something that reflects the lunacy we are dwelling amidst, during our short time on this crazy planet. It’s been a great.. Read More
Atrox – Monocle (Dark Essence)

Atrox – Monocle (Dark Essence)

Avant-garde perfection cannot be rushed and it has been one hell of a long wait since last album Binocular from Atrox way back in 2008. They are still very much looking through a glass lens which could well see them working on a trilogy (what.. Read More
The Soundbyte – Solitary IV (Temple of Torturous)

The Soundbyte – Solitary IV (Temple of Torturous)

Experimentation and avant-garde metal is what’s promised on this album by The Soundbyte, a project from Trond Engum out of Trondheim in Norway. What I heard at first were ambient sounds and the depiction of a bleak space. The symphony is not sharp but it.. Read More
Madder Mortem – Red In Tooth And Claw (Dark Essence)

Madder Mortem – Red In Tooth And Claw (Dark Essence)

Now this is a very welcome return! Although Madder Mortem never actually split up they have definitely been on what can only be described as serious hiatus. It was 2009-2010 when we last heard from them with album ‘Eight Ways’ and follow up EP ‘Where.. Read More
Manes – Be All End All (Debemur Morti)

Manes – Be All End All (Debemur Morti)

Manes undoubtedly come from the Norwegian planet, inhabited by Atrox, Green Carnation, Audrey Horne and others, where life is seen from an odd and oblique angle. My only previous exposure to this band, who have now released four albums and endless other bits in three.. Read More
Manes – Teeth, Toes and Other Trinkets (Debemur Morti)

Manes – Teeth, Toes and Other Trinkets (Debemur Morti)

The history of Manes is such that it could fill a whole review. Suffice to say that this band from Trondheim in Norway has been around on and off since 1993, since when it has developed from black metal roots to incorporate experimental, electronic and.. Read More
