"From Carlisle, UK, Manatees are masters of seamlessly mixing destructive crushing heaviness with moving passages of eerie atmospherics and introspective ambience.

Capturing the raw, stripped down intensity of their near deafening live show, this is a record that for which maximum volume is a must."
