MANES, the Norwegian band featuring members of THIRD AND THE MORTAL, ATROX and CHTON, has parted ways with Candlelight Records. The group says, "We'll probably use this 'window of opportunity' to do various stuff, so, expect a frenzy of 'free,' 'open' and 'experimental' activity (not just music) for a while before we start hunting for a 'new home."

The band continues, "'Reinvention' has been made available at Six remixes of songs from [the latest MANES album] 'How The World Came To An End' by a bunch of great groups and individuals, such as RUNE SØRGÅRD, ZWEISS, SHADOW ORCHESTRA, RACHMIEL, DJ DON TOMASO. [Also available is] 'Solve Et Coagula', a re-recording of two songs from 1994-95, with a few collaborators: Niklas Kvarforth from SHINING, Malefic from XASTHUR and Geir Nilsen for the THIRD AND THE MORTAL, and more.... and, if everything goes according to plan, there will also be remixes/remakes by people from BLUT AUS NORD and ISIS. So, quite exciting.

"[The next MANES album] 'Be All End All' is starting to get into shape, at least the main pillars, the 'ground zero' of the album, around 35 minutes is 'on tape', a step forward, but also a step back. New direction? New focus? Only time will tell..."

MANES' latest album, "How the World Came to an End", was released in May 2007 via Candlelight Records. The artwork for the CD was created by Trine Paulsen and Kim Sølve of, who previously worked with bands like ULVER, WHEN, ARCTURUS, DARKTHRONE and SOLEFALD.
