‘S-M 2: Abyss In B Minor’ is the second album from Sereena-Maneesh,
following the release of their self-titled, much-prasied album in 2006.
Sereena-Maneesh’s eponymously titled debut
album established the Norwegian band as an act that
could merge the lilting, ethereal melodies with
crushingly loud, shimmering distortion. This new
album is also their first release for 4AD, who they
recently signed to.
The band started recording for the new album in
2008 when they went back underground to record in
a cave on the outskirts of Oslo. Once recorded, they
then worked on the album further with Nick Terry
(who has worked with Klaxons and Primal
Scream), and Can associate René Tinner, who set
about mixing the results, spending an incredible eight
days on each song. It was even mastered at Air
Studios by Ray Staff, who did the same for, among
many others, Led Zeppelin’s ‘Physical Graffiti’,
but this is no distended double album, the end result
is a concise eight tracks spread over just 38 minutes
and 45 seconds.
