Norwegian Post-Black Metal from the 90's
A ghost has risen from Norway's post-Black Metal scene. Its name is MANIMALISM. After releasing two demos in the mid-nineties as TAARENES VAAR, MANIMALISM went quiet; or so it seemed on the outside. Now, 22 years after the band formed in 1992, they are ready to launch their very first album! Composed between 1993 and 1999, this album—apparently cursed from birth—has since been hovering in a near-completed form burdened by a constant barrage of breakdowns, line-up changes, and recording difficulties. Now the wait is over! Slithering from silence is the crew of Kim Sølve, Bjeima, Petter 'Plenum' Berntsen, Member 01, and Joachim Svebo. First up is the single "Demons in Tuxedos", the opening track from their first demo from 1996.
After a 22-year birth, the time has come. From the dark past, we give you: MANIMALISM.
Manimalism is being released on black and gold 12 inch vinyl by Adversum, the label that gave you Yurei, I Left The Planet, Alfa Obscura, and Stagnant Waters. Due to the limited amount of copies being pressed (slightly above 200), we are afraid physical promos are not possible at this point.
Here’s a little taster called Demons In Tuxedos, the opening track from the album and also the opening track from the first demo from back in 1996:
