Bad Manor debut EP
Official press release:
Labyrinth Tower has announced the vinyl edition of The Haunting, the debut from black metal collaboration and member of the Ordo Vampyr Orientis collective, Bad Manor.
Originally released on cassette and digital formats, the Labyrinth Tower edition is being offered on heavyweight translucent pink/magenta marble and limited black vinyl, with an illustrated 16-page book of stories that accompany the twisted tales heard on The Haunting. Orders also come with a brushed bronze Ordo Vampyr Orientis insignia pin.
Emerging from the burgeoning Ordo Vampyr Orientis circle, metal entity Bad Manor's energetic and whimsical debut The Haunting weaves a series of dark tales surrounding the band's titular mansion. Inhabited by dark spirits and curses alike, Bad Manor's vision of metal looks not to grim forests and minimal musical ideas but rather vivid, imagination-driven scenes, curious tales, and sinister, active musical ideas alike. Featuring a paired book illustrated by artist Landis Blair and with stories recounted by the mysterious author and medium Stephen R.C. Sicreeve, The Haunting's multidisciplinary approach to metal–filled with secrets and hidden passages–is as sprawling and chaotic as the house itself. Lose yourself in its hallways, but don't let yourself disappear. Listeners and readers alike: beware.
The Haunting transcends the traditional concept of "an album." This is a multimedia, multisensory cerebral journey through madness. Pre-order your experience here.
