Dead In The Manger Signs With 20 Buck Spin To Release "Transience"

Olympia, Washington-based 20 Buck Spin announces today the induction of mysterious entity, Dead In The Manger. The label comments:

"Very little information was provided to 20 Buck Spin regarding Dead In The Manger when the label was initially contacted about a release, only that the band delivers a mix of depressive black metal and grind (which seemed on paper an impossible combination) and that the intention is to leave a feeling of unease and despondency in the listener.

"Nonetheless, a cursory listen to the outfit's debut MLP, 'Transience,' leaves no doubt that Dead In The Manger succeeds handily in creating music both brutally violent and coldly agonizing.

"Transience begins with an atmospheric repetitive motive conjuring a bleak sadness that sets the stage for an urgent right turn to scalpel-sharp, maximum BPM aggression and multiple stab wounds of hate-driven malcontent. Filled with ill will and revulsion, Dead In The Manger walks a fine line between all out sensory violence and post trauma exhaustion.

"With just six songs in less than twenty minutes -- succinctly named Parts I-VI -- 'Transience' destroys the listener with a calculated premeditation in a short time, and is intended as a first glimpse at what Dead In The Manger is preparing for, as a debut full-length album is currently in the works."

"Transience" will be unleashed on MLP and digital formats in North America on April 29th and in Europe on May 2nd. Dead in the Manger's LP debut will follow later in 2014, also on 20 Buck Spin.
