Band: THE CHRONICLES OF MANIMAL AND SAMARA
Who: London-based duo feat. Daphne Ang (Singapore) and Andrea Papi (Italy).
Drawing inspiration from Tool and Kraftwerk, as well as the poetry of Sylvia Plath,
Virginia Woolf, and Jim Morrison, TCOMAS fills a gap in music by bringing literature,
art, and history together into a space where rock and metal meet electronica.
After the release, last February of Full Spectrum, one of the best and most
adventurous albums of 2021, Manimal and Samara return with a new single.
Count The Death is a song “about the value of human life. We composed this song
in protest of governments and world leaders, whose negligence and recklessness
have resulted in one of the largest ‘avoidable’ losses of lives in generations. The song
raises issues that people need to know and think about, such as the social and economic injustices that plague society and violent health inequalities that have been further
exacerbated by the pandemic”.
An Eddie Van Halen-like intro riff, Samara‘s menacing spoken word rant, feverish
wailing moments, growling Napalm Death eruptions. All in one song? Absolutely.
On paper, it resembles a chaotic piece of doom and gloom anger.
On record, all those elements come together organically resulting in a crystal-clear structured protest against greedy political sharks and megalomaniac charlatans oppressing people for their own devastating agendas. Again Manimal and Samara
show how to fuse poignant poetry and versatile metal genres. Manimal and Samara
are sonic architects.
