The strange transformation of Manes took place with their third album Vilosophe. What was previously considered as a “forerunner of Depressive Black Metal”, now had attempted to become the Norwegian Radiohead. The only trace of Black Metal strumming is detectable in the Grunge formula of opener “Nodamnbrakes [One Zero / Endpoint]”. The rest of the album takes more time to develop: “Diving with Your Hands Bound [Nearly Flying]” is a 10 minutes epic that goes from subtle creepy/subtle electronic synth pads delivering a relaxed atmosphere and then evolving into a cerebral Progressive rocker that grows on intensity before ending with a long feedback sustained note and a spectral Jungle section influenced by artists like Aphex Twin; “White Devil Black Shroud” instead is a minor-key Post-Rock ballad in the vein of Yo La Tengo’s second part career; finally, “Death of the Genuine [The Redemption Ritual]” features another hyper-speed Jungle beat. The rest of the album features more gloomy and convnetional Post-Grunge tendencies as usual, of the like that, when keyboards and clean vocals are used, passes as senseless “Avant-Garde” for anyone who ignores Muse, Coldplay or even Katatonia. Some of the material here is passable, but, although if both albums are stylistically incomparable, in terms of inspiration and coherence, this album is inferior to the previous Under Ein Bloodraud Maane. Not to count the singer’s terrible lack of charisma and the final track, which is nothing short than a film sample.Highlights: “Diving with Your Hands Bound [Nearly Flying]”; “White Devil Black Shroud”.
