Manneveira are a largely unknown act hailing from the wastes of Iceland, toiling in the underground for a decade with only an EP and a split to show for it before this, their full-length debut. The closest description I can give for this is a more progressive and downright avant-garde version of Finland's Worthless, but really, the band manages the difficult task of creating a novel and heavily experimental sound without straying from the confines of Black Metal. This a dark and unwelcoming work that focuses on developing a dark, expansive mood that serves as a base for every strange twist and turn the songs take, and it leaves us with an album that certainly won't be for everyone, but absolutely stands out as a fine example of why we should be paying more attention to the burgeoning Icelandic scene. Strongly recommended.
