Presence: Into the Here & the Now

Presence: into the here and the now is the 3rd and newest album by Manufactura. It is the continuation of a journey that began five years earlier with Regression, and was continued through with Precognitive Dissonance. However the path through insanity and madness has reached a major fork in the road, and rather then choosing one road over the other, Manufactura instead chose to just destroy all of the roads and rebuild a new path of self destruction, hatred, madness and pain, that was previously unheard of from this project. Crunch Pod will release the album in conjunction with Auricle Media Productions May/June 2005. The album features a re-interpretation of a David Lynch song, a special track containing the poetic words of Charles Bukowski adapted by Karloz.M as well as a special collaborative track between Alfa-Matrix recording artists Glis and Manufactura. This is quite possibly the darkest and most personal album by Manufactura to date, once again blending genres, electronic sounds with even more disturbing vocals and sample manipulations. Yet another new sound and style from the project that appears unwilling to repeat it self.
