Chaos Engine

MANATARK is a pretty original band. It's quite melodic and dark black metal sounds pretty inspired and different from actual references of the style. The tracks are really different from each other, but the main structure of a song is based on quite repetitive schemes that combine fast drumming, traditional black metal riffing and dark, melodic or even atmospheric moods. Not only the album needs several listenings to be really appreciated, but it also becomes more interesting as the music goes. I mean the 2 first tracks aren't the best, and on the contrary tracks 4 (We stole your death) and 5 (The serpent's tongue) start to show some very good breaks in MANATARK's music where the two first was just middle-class songs... Imagination and originality are what remains from the listening of this "Chaos engine", so those who are searching for some original black and dark metal can try this album, it probably deserves some interest.
