The extreme releases of this month continue with MANEGARM. As you have already guessed seeing the sleeve and the name, they are a Swedish Black Metal band. They are quite typical I would say, but that does not mean they are bad. On the contrary, I believe they are very good; apart from the huge amounts of brutality they unleash, they have some very nice melodies, keyboards and good female vocals. They are not pioneers, playing something we have never heard before, but what they do, they do it good. If you are a fan of the genre, this is definitely an investment for you. We will be hearing about them in the future, I am sure.
