Manigance: “The Shadows Ball” CD February 24th March 2023 Rockshots records. French Heavy Metal band.
Originally released on 18th March 2022, it has been released as an English version this year. It’s rare for a French band to redo an album in English for the world to spread their music. A few bands have done so to expose themselves worldwide, but they are only a tiny part of the bands.
Most French bands sing in French and don’t open to the world. The others who do sing in English but they aren’t many. You can think of Gojira, an example of a band who wanted to get heard worldwide from the start and you can see how they succeeded (I didn’t know they were French..).
So for those who don’t know Manigance, it’s a band that has been around for decades with numerous lineups. The addition of the new singer Carine Pinto made a well-received impact giving the band another lift into the scene and gaining many more fans. You can read their interview in The Metal Mag by our friend and partner John from Asher Media Relations.
Have a listen :
The band worked hard to transform the album to sound like an international band. The rest of the world will so love it as the French language is hard to get. They may sound new to you, but they have been around for quite some time. Considered a masterpiece, from the cover artwork to the songs. It will blow you away!
A must-have for any Metal maniacs 100/100.
