Norway’s MANES Releases New Compilation

Trondheim, Norway’s MANES just released a compilation (digital, CD, LP) entitled Teeth, Toes and Other Trinkets.  In true metal fashion, it is available for 6.66 Euros here.

Teeth, Toes and Other Trinkets is an anthology of eleven unreleased, obscure and hard-to-find tracks / alternate versions culled from the verdant MANES archives. Dating back to the periods of their stellar Vilosophe and How The World Came To An End full-lengths from 2003 and 2007 respectively, these previous-buried jewels have been exhumed and presented anew for fresh consumption.

Much more than mere curios, each of the statements hereon represents a magical moment in its own right … some art is simply too precious to languish on the cutting-room floor! The once-lost songs flow seamlessly into one another to conjure an album proper that those who appreciate MANES’s unique, oblique charms can (re)discover together.

The band comments: “Before we truly come back to life with MANES, we figured we’d dig up some dead stuff for everyone to enjoy. This is a collection of odds and ends that on the surface might seem to appeal mostly to the most die-hard completist, but listening to it ourselves we find it works surprisingly well on its own. It is at times very lo-fi and not at all polished, but swamped in atmosphere and nostalgia, at least for us.”
