MANIFEST Guitarist Breaks Elbow; Band Forced To Cancel Gigs

Guitarist Ole Marius Larmerud of the Norwegian noise-thrashers MANIFEST fell off his bike yesterday and broke his elbow. "This puts us out of business for some time," reads a posting on the group's web site.

Commented Ole: "Yesterday I fell of my bike and broke my left elbow. This forces MANIFEST to cancel the upcoming gigs in Horten, Kristiansand, Trondheim and Oslo. I am not sure if we will be able to do the Norwegian tour in support of ENTOMBED [in late September]. I am going to an examination at the hospital in a week, so hopefully I`ll know more then. The timing of this stupid accident could of course not have been worse, as we have a lot of gigs in the near future. This sucks big-time, but there is nothing we can do about it. Right now, my arm hurts as hell, but at least, the doctor believes that it will heal fast and not have any permanent damage. For now, I'll just eat painkillers and focus on getting well."

MANIFEST's debut album, "Half Past Violence", was released in June 2005 via Edgerunner Music. The CD was produced by Rune Stavnesli at the Godt Selskap Studio (NECROPHAGIA, THE APPARATUS) in Trondheim, Norway.
