BIRTH. LIFE. DEATH. UNDER THE HEPTAGRAM.
Somebody, please just take me to Manégarmr release show tonight.
Hessian and Blind to Faith would be just perfect. Why the fuck wasn’t I born and raised in Belgium.
—Mourn the World of Man
Label: Southern Lord
Almost a year ago, when the Belgian act Amenra decided to roll out a split with another band associated with their art collective Church of Ra – also founded in the Flemish city of Kortrijk -, it was arduous not to fix our focus on what we were hearing on a track cryptic called Manégarmr. Venomous hardcore, blasting uninterruptedly, which only broke itself up to give the spotlight to Colin H. van Eeckhout, precisely the keened vocalist of Amenra, in a tremendous rendition of atmospheric (post/black) metal.
New On Southern Lord. Hessian - Manègarmr
“Named after the wolf that - in Norwegian mythology - devours the sun every night, their debut record focuses both sonically and lyrically on the endless cycles of destruction that are imminent to this life and the world in which we live. From the soaring take-off of “Ascension”, via the treacherous calm of central pieces “Vāmācāra” and “Father of Greed”, to the merciless onslaught that is “Mother of Time”. With towering guitars, frenzied drum patterns and savage vocals that sound like the howl of the lone wolf, Manègarmr is a furious blizzard of cold Black Metal, violently crashing into a maelstrom of ultra-metallic dark hardcore.
