The brainchild of enigmatic ex-MAYHEM vocalist Maniac whose often erratic and self-mutilating performances helped the Norwegian Black Metal founders become that of legend. Having spent months in the dark throes of mystery and solitude brooding over his next musical movement, Maniac has assembled an impressive cast to help materialize his morbid visions. SKITLIV "Skandinavisk Misantropi" is a bleak soundtrack to his personal apocalypse which is full of loathing, hatred and spite. Featuring Attila Csihar (MAYHEM, SUN O))), Gaahl (ex-GORGOROTH), Niklas Kvarforth (SHINING) and David Tibet & Andrew Liles (CURRENT 93), this debut is a miasma of brilliant desperation and hopelessness. Many will drop in awe at the stunning vocal range, guitar playing and bevy of emotions pouring out of Maniac's open veins! The careful, organic mastering of Andrew Liles (NURSE WITH WOUND / CURRENT 93) has given this black diamond it glorious, multi-faceted finish. A new epic sub-realm to extreme audio art has been created with this keystone debut.
