Favourite Track: RiderZ (feat. Girls At Work)
MANAPOOL was nice enough to answer a few questions about their latest full length and what they've been working on. Here's what they had to say!
Q1: Can you tell us a bit about Trance Tuesdays?
A1: TRANCE TUESDAYs is a compilation the collective I run, Chao Gardem, puts out in a series. We've concluded our first arc, with three compilations released as of now.
Q2: What have you been listening to lately?
Q3: You have worked on collaborative projects with both OUTBACK and Casper Mcfadden. What do you enjoy most about the collaborative process? Can we expect to see more collab releases in the future?
Q4: Do you have any hidden gem video game recommendations?
A4: I have too many. Currently playing Jeane D'arc for PSP, it's made by the company that made Dark Cloud and Ni No Kuni. (level 5) it's a tactical jrpg with 3d models set in France with Joan of Arc being the main character.
Q5: The ZODIAC CORE album has a goth / metal aesthetic. What are the bands from those genres that inspire you?
A5: Zodiac Core's cover was directly influenced by covers for 'DYSTOPIA' albums. My favorite bands within that scene would be Dir En Grey (favorite of all time), Orchid, Discordance Axis, Full of Hell, Wormrot, and the Locust. I initially started making and releasing music in the Midwest screamo revival scene circa 2010-2015.
