Norwegian post-black metal band, MANIMALISM, is returning from a long hiatus to release their first full-length album, Manimalism.
After releasing two demos in the mid-nineties as TAARENES VAAR, MANIMALISM went quiet; or so it seemed on the outside. 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. Slithering from silence is the crew of renown artist/designer Kim Sølve, Bjeima (YUREI, ex-VIRUS), Petter ‘Plenum’ Berntsen (VIRUS), Member 01 (THE CONSORTIUM), and Joachim Svebo.
First up is the single “Demons in Tuxedos,” the opening track from their first demo from 1996:
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.
