The new project/band from maestro and master songsmith Guy Manning, Damenek, is certainly
worth a place in anybodys collection.
Being a long time Manning fan, Im not quite sure how to shape this review of the forthcoming
masterpiece. Is it different? Definitely YES. Why is it different? Not sure!
There are still the signature layers of melody, rhythm and splendid lyrics, there are still Guys deep
resonant and passionate vocals, so what is it? The production is superb, a full sound, more rock than previous incarnations, maybe.
Tell you what, lets forget the whole, what Guy did before scenario here! Lets start again.
New band Damenek hit the rails running with the superb debut On Track. Powerful and melodic rock with progressive undertones and, at times, overtones. Powerful opener Nanabohzo And The Rainbow is a great place to start. Great guitar, keys, changing rhythms and textures.
There are numerous different moods and sounds throughout the album, it is quite a journey from beginning to end, taking in numerous points around the world. Long Time Shadow Falls is a gentler but no less intense track, subtle keyboards interwoven with thoughtful guitar and flute. All blended together and held in check by Guy Mannings vocals.
Cosmic Score is one of those annoying but delightful tracks that lodges in the memory very quickly and has you, well me at least, whistling the chorus over and over.
As always there is a little light relief, the mood and feeling of Big Parade brings a smile to the face,
(anybody remember Bloody Holiday?), but I think the message here is a little more serious, but that
is up to the listener.
Dark Sun is just an amazing, absorbing, simply marvellous, (sorry had to use it somewhere),
modern progressive rock track. Intense at the beginning but you can feel the track building and, sure
enough, it explodes into life. Not some much with a crash and a bang, big guitar sound knocking you
off your feet straight away, but it gets there. Your then led through a jazz, blues, rock, prog, call it
what you will passage of interwoven melodies back into a more, I want to say sombre but it isnt quite right, more thoughtful, but no less intense final third.
In a nutshell. Simply marvellous. A fantastic cast joining the main band members, Guy Manning,
Marek Arnold, Dan Mash and Sean Timms, including, Nick Magnus, Luke Machin and Phideaux to name but three, all contribute to a stunning debut.
Fans of previous Guy Manning masterpieces will not be disappointed so long as they accept that Guy has moved on from Manning and has re-invented his music, everything that we love and admire is still there, he has just done it a little differently.
