"Mani Deum" started back in late 2005 in Corfu island, Greece... Slowly they took their form as a folk noir/experimental/neocabaret project, something that they call "infected folk 'n' roll" and in late 2006 they release their first d.i.y cd single. In 2007 they start to participate in festivals and concerts and they release two more 3” limited mini cd's ("infected folk 'n' roll vol.1" & "infected folk 'n' roll vol.2"). In 2009 they release their first cd in a major label (Dead Scarlet Records): "Five Infected Blessings" ep which contains five infected folk 'n' roll tracks , plus one bonus track , featuring Dimo Dimov (Svarrogh) on vocals. At present time (2011) Mani Deum have lots of differences in their sound since the beginning... The proof is their first full length album entitled "Music For Your Local Church...Or Your Local Brothel" which was released in June 2011 ... A limited edition first release, in a luxury digipack with artwork and booklet , plus very special guests on the recordings (as Matt Howden)... The very first introduction in public for their new album was at 20th Wave Gothic Treffen festival, in Leipzig, Germany. Mani Deum have participated on numerous compilations (like Neo folk.It
, Neo form III, The beast etc.) and have played alongside bands such as And Also The Trees, Paul Roland, Backworld, Sieben, Spiritual Front, Rome,My Brightest Diamond, Allerseelen, Svarrogh, While Angels Watch, Ordo Rosarius Equilibrio ...
