MANIMAL was founded in Gothenburg in 2001, when the singer Samuel Nyman affiliated to the band already consisting of Henrik Stenroos on guitar, Richard Mentzer on drums and Pether Menzer on bass. Soon the band found Samuel’s characteristic high pitch style of singing complemented the band’s music in a superb manner. Manimal soon begun to write new material and recorded a number of demo CDs which all got excellent reviews by music websites and numerous established music magazines, among them Close-Up Magazine and Groove.
In 2008 the band felt ready to record their first full length album, so the working process with The Darkest Room started and went on along most of the year.
February 25 2009, the album was released in Sweden, on MANIMAL's own record label. The album imediately became a success and it went straight into 36th place in the official Swedish album charts!
It didn't take long after the Swedish release, before AFM picked up and signed MANIMAL for a world-wide release of The Darkest Room later in 2009. _________________________
