Mania - "Death Of Birth" (2007)

MANIA "Death Of Birth"

Year: 2007
Genre: Cascadian Black Metal
Country: USA
Label: self-prod.

Track List:
  1. The Sound of Hell
  2. No Escape
  3. No Future
  4. No Home
  5. The Death of Birth
  6. The Birth From Death

"The endless struggle to survive is what Mania is about. Primitivism is the key. No amount of leftist 'anarchist' and 'vegan' ideas will change this world; only personal fulfillment to better you and your immediate community can change your life. A never-ending, all encompassing, urban sprawl of technological infrastructure will engulf all life and there is no fighting it.. only embracing it and using it to further your immediate needs until it collapses. Don't miss the point here. Nature is important, however Cascadia is just like the rest of the world. A symbolic longing for a life of nature is all we have here."

Yes, these guys are very radical. I can't say I support their beliefs to a full extent, but their music is damn good. The first LP by them features more clear sound than "Current Chaos", and it's more depressive and doom metal-influenced, when compared to most of other Cascadian black metal (only in my opinion, of course).
