M.A.N: ‘Identical Abuse’ Video Released

“Identical Abuse”, the new Gabriel Engberg-directed video from M.A.N — the group formed out of the ashes of Sweden’s TRANSPORT LEAGUE (featuring former MNEMIC frontman Tony Jelencovich) — can be seen below. The song comes off the band’s third album, “Massive Audio Nerve”, which was released on March 26, 2010 via the German label Tiefdruck Musik. The CD was recorded at Grand Recordings in Gothenburg, Sweden with engineer Svein Jensen and was mixed by Ulrich Wild, who has previously worked with WHITE ZOMBIE, STAIND, STATIC-X, DEFTONES, PANTERA and LIMP BIZKIT, among others. The mastering was handled by Maor Appelbaum at Maor Appelbaum Masteringin Encino, California.

A new M.A.N three-track digital single called “Massive Audio Outtakes” will be made available soon. It will include a previously unreleased song called “Song#3 The Redemption”, a video remix of “Identical Abuse” and an industrial remix of the track “Loveless”.

The first photo of M.A.N‘s current lineup — featuring the band’s latest addition, guitarist Nils Olsson — can be viewed below.

Nils will make his live debut with M.A.N on April 16 at Sticky Fingers in Gothenburg, Sweden.

M.A.N will enter the studio in the fall to record the follow-up to last year’s “Massive Audio Nerve”. According to the band, “The sound will be fierce, and M.A.N will continue to explore the quarter tone system — an exciting journey!”
