‘At The World’s End’ is the opening insight to The Chronicles of Manimal and Samara’s debut album which will be released later this year but hopefully not too far away. It is always important for the right tone to be set to build an awareness and excitement about the future album.
The focus and spirit of this track is an awakening that man’s actions have an effect on the planet which we inhabit, The Chronicles of Manimal and Samara explains this is a story told through the eyes of two lovers who exchange a final declaration of love on the last days of earth. Some heavy stuff there, but deep down in the pit of our stomachs we are all aware of the situation in front of us but unable to delicately explain the situation, so maybe we may find our voices through this track.
The Chronicles of Manimal and Samara have a sense of a dark and menacing biographical fair to this music, meaningful rich lyrics imprinted to the front of your mind that has a hypnotic and spine tingling quality, with an background instrumental performance that stamps and presses heavy, rough, and raw textures that combined together to make this track an exploration.
We got to say the record is grabbing on it’s own played through your headphones, but for the full experience, watch the music video as the music and visual displays are equally absorbing!

On first listen of ‘The Descent’ by The Chronicles of Manimal and Samara you are in for a treat. On second, third, and forth listen you begin to become aware of it as a piece of art beyond music in so many ways.
The beginning of the song is the narrated poetic voice of Mother Nature expressing her wishes and feelings and impending concern, but then half way through the track new life is breathed through it with heavy distorted guitar textures and a visual beat. The energy from this new texture is absorbing and allows the meaningful and awaking lyrics to take its most important stage.
‘The Descent’ will enhance your knowledge and understanding, at the same time providing a massive moving musical background, the changes within the layers are harsh and reflective of the vocals. To get a full sense of the brutal and beautiful nature of ‘The Descent’, we here at Off the Hook Music suggest you watch the video which goes with this record.
