MANES
HOW THE WORLD CAME TO AN END
CANDLELIGHT

Norwegian act Manes play a type of trip-hop induced, electronica-fused metal that would fit snuggly on a soundtrack to a video game turned into a motion picture . Besides boasting a cinematic scope, this 10-track offering is teeming with a rock noir vibe that propels songs like "Last Lights" into the Goth rock category, while "Nobody Wants the Truth" takes you on a pulsating ride containing Depeche Mode-esque mope and the delicacy of Portishead. While ambient trumps heavy throughout this albumís duration, HOW THE WORLD CAME TO AN END still has touches of crunch (albeit synthetic) to hit home with a crowd familiar with the darker side of the spectrum.
