"Hard-hitting and addictive..."
"Powerful and anarchic..."
"If a heart could survive naked, here's its sound..."
"This is what music is... in a post-apocalyptic world."
"every sound's crisp & focused... easy to get pulled into their mysterious world."
"this experimental industrial couple makes music filled with crushed beats & fuzzy guitars."
"there's a darker scene that post-industrial band ManifestiV has grabbed by the horns."
ManifestiV formed in Vallejo CA in dawn of 2014, featuring mortician-met musicians ¶ Paragraph Taylor on guitars & Lillith Taylor on vibraphone, harmonizing over their experimental industrial beats while utilizing more organic tones than the usual mechanical timbre in heavy music played over synths & loops.
Paragraph's psychedelic down-tuned guitars color tribal bit-crushed break-beats in tandem with Lillith's hand-made electronic vibraphone, all underneath an ocean of the duo's haunting vocal harmonies. Longtime mixer Ryan A joined in 2019 as drummer, the same year Kevin (Secret Of Boris member also with ¶para; & Ryan A) joined on bass officially, just in time to open for My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult in Dallas. A slot with Front Line Assembly & Ministry got pandemic-postponed in late 2021, but not before the band began recording, again for Kevin, ¶ & Ryan A's 2nd time since the last time 20 years ago, with innovatively groundbreaking, dark, dense, tense & emotionally heavy electronic artist Lcn1.
ManifestiV songs gain influence from Nine Inch Nails to Alice in Chains delivered in styles ranging from Lorn to Boards of Canada.
