18th May 2011: We've just begun recording a bunch of new songs. Yay! The whole process will takes months, but every journey starts with a first step, right? Right now focus is on a couple of melodic tracks, "Juliet Again" and "Last Goodbye". We're also producing a bunch of older songs ("Silver Case", "Here Comes the Summer" and "Lost in Broken Memories"). And if we're still hungry, "To Smile Again" and a cover version might follow, eventually. I'm currently preparing the backing tracks for some drum recordings. (Jutze)

We hope you enjoy the music. Have a merry Christmas and happy new year! We are going to release a new single in 2010. We're also looking forward to offer or old (and new) material as digitial downloads. Love! (Jutze)

17th November 2009: Manticess are competing in the SongFu song writing contest over at! The current task was to write a song about on of John Hodgman's 700 Mole Men. We ended up with a song named "423. Red". We also made a little video and put it on YouTube for your entertainment! On the contest webpage you can download the song for free and actually vote for us. But I think it's more important to listen to the other entries first, discover some awesome new, original music, and then proceed to vote for your five favourite tunes. Have fun! (Jutze)
