Manuskript:

If there was a good goth version of “Pop Idols ”, Manuskript would win, hands down.

They take the vibrancy of 80 ’s new-romantic, meld it with the best emotion that 90 ’s dark-wave gave, and add their own original, highly energetic & exciting sound.

Though they draw on certain influences, Manuskript have carved their own niche, an irresistible combination to lovers of synth-pop and hardened rock fans alike, yet still firmly entrenched in the goth scene. Their unique sound is characterized by unerring vocal lines, which weave in and out of a backdrop of grandiose synthesisers and searing guitars - all cemented with a pounding, electronic rhythm section.

Lead vocalist Mike effortlessly -and inevitably- has his live audiences bouncing & singing along with their unbelievably catchy choruses. The energy & interplay between Mike and keyboardist/second vocalist Tim (also known for the band Pretentious, Moi?) during their gigs is infectious & looking around at a Manuskript gig, you get the pleasant sight of many smiling faces, even on the most jaded of Goths.

Clever lyrics and choruses to die for, full-speed-ahead rhythms and ideas that tumble forth as if tipped out of a bucket. This isn’t all “happy go lucky” music here, though; there are still those darker moments, and even a bit of social commentary. (But just wait for the surprise cover song at the end of their set!)
