We’re proud to shed some light on the first MANES release under the Debemur Morti Productions banner.

The Norwegian multi-facial entity gathered a precious collection of 11 unreleased, obscure, alternate versions and hard-to-find tracks found in their archives and dating back to the time around the legendary albums “Vilosophe” (2003) and “How The World Came To An End” (2007).

Manes: Teeth, Toes and Other Trinkets

This anthology, titled “Teeth, Toes And Other Trinkets”, will contain the following tracks :

1. Blanket of Ashes
[From the upcoming album “Be all end all”]
2. Ende (live)
[Recorded live 2004]
3. Ease yourself back (into conciousness)
[Previously unreleased]
4. The cure-all (remix)
[Rune Sørgård remix]
5. One more room
[‘white devil black shroud’ preprod, alternate title/lyrics]
6. Nobody wants the truth
[Alternate preprod version]
7. Tzolv
[Hard-to-find track]
8. Transmigrant
[Alternate preprod version]
9. Nodamnbrakes
[Alternate preprod version]
10. Diving with your hands bound [nearly flying]

11. Deeprooted (8-bit)

The visual Art was imagined and realized by the talented French Artist Dehn Sora (ULVER, BLUT AUS NORD, NEUROSIS).

This somptuous anthology will be officially unleashed on CD, vinyl and digital format this coming January 17th 2014. Both CD and vinyl edition will be available directly through the label a bit earlier, around mid-December 2013.

A few words from the band about this special release: “Before we truly come back to life with MANES, we figured we’d dig up some dead stuff for everyone to enjoy. This is a collection of odds and ends that on the surface might seem to appeal mostly to the most die-hard completist, but listening to it ourselves we find it works surprisingly well on its own. It is at times very lo-fi and not at all polished, but swamped in atmosphere and nostalgia, at least for us.”
