Manes - How The World Came To An End (Candlelight Records) - Back
Ever start listening to a CD and wonder, why am I listening to this? Well after the first few tracks that’s what went through my head when I heard Manes album “How The World Came To An End.”

Comprised of electronica that could be described as industrial/techno doom metal/ trip-hop, this really didn’t appetize my metal tastes for more than a second. The electro/goth beats are alright but still not really all that metallic. Parts are reminiscent of Nine Inch Nails, but I like NIN much more than this concept.

Members of Manes include former members of 3rd & the Mortal and Atrox, but with the use of rapping vocals it should leave the fans of their old bands with their mouth left open after saying, “What the hell?!?”

Not gonna say much about this because it’s hard for a metal head to enjoy, much less even get into.
