THE Chronicles of Manimal and Samara
Debut Album | OUT NOW
ABOUT THE ALBUM
Comprising 11 tracks lasting over 67 minutes long, The Chronicles of Manimal and Samara recorded their debut album 'Full Spectrum' between February and June of 2020 at the artists' home studio in Camden Town during the first London Lockdown. The album sweeps across the wide spectrum of music genres – from progressive rock to techno, metal to ambient and electronic, and back to rock, a reflection and affirmation of the musical ingenuity and lyrical virtuosity of The Chronicles of Manimal and Samara.
The songs are arranged in a way that it takes listeners through the Full Spectrum of human experience and emotion. Each song is a complete experience on its own, each blending different influences and styles, while also continuing and building upon the meaning and message presented in the previous.
Epic, ambitious, yet cohesive as a whole, 'Full Spectrum' traverses dystopia and utopian worlds, balancing dark and grim reminders of human mortality with triumphant moments of hope and individual agency, opening up avenues for listeners to escape beyond the crisis and harsh realities of the current times – into the sphere of the transcendent and the numinous.
“ 10/10... a sublime work of genius... Possibly the most prog thing I have ever heard.”
“Full Spectrum is not just an album but an expression and a piece of art beyond music.”
“FULL SPECTRUM will be one of the best albums of 2021 where poetry and metallic turbulence come together as one.”
