Manzer - Pictavian Chronicles (CD Review)
French blackend thrash metal band formed by Deathspell Omega founder member.
They like to keep it "Real" and "Underground", which means fuck all in the way of bio and no facebook page.
What we have here is a compilation cd of demos, tracks from split singles, some cover versions and a couple of live tracks.
Well its a huge pile of Venom worship, that early punk/metal hybrid, what sums it up is the great version of 'Acid Queen' could have been a demo from Cronos himself.
The only thing i dont like about this is the terrible cover of King Diamonds 'Come To The Sabbath' the cookie monster vocals trying to get higher just dont work.
As for their original songs, short and agressive, played well, no time for fancy solos or production, just straight forward in your face metal.
For fans of: Venom, Warfare, Nunslaughter, Abigail
