EP Review: Dead In The Manger – Transience

12 Jacket (3mm Spine) [GDOB-30H3-007}

I’ve had another review published at Summoning Spirits, for the new EP by USBM band Dead In The Manger. A very exciting release.

“There’s something special missing from much music produced today, regardless of genre. It’s not necessarily talent, which takes many forms. Nor is it originality, which is a vastly over-rated thing. Rather, it’s a sense of ambition, of a band trying to be more than just a group of friends who bonded over beers and records, and who have instead decided to try and produce something special that deserves attention. There’s nothing inherently wrong with jamming with your buddies and ripping off your favourite bands, but it does not make for great art. Thankfully, mysterious US group Dead In The Manger are not one such band, and their début EP Transience showcases a band intent not just on creating original music, but also on producing something special that rises above the mundane, reminding the listener of a time when black metal was new, exciting, and a little bit scary.”
