These Are They
Who Manifest
May 2009
Released: 2009, The End Records
Rating: 2.5/5
Reviewer: Bruce Sanchez

WHO MANIFEST is the first EP from Chicago’s These Are They. It is three tracks of straight death metal.

There’s nothing new and exciting here, just tradition for a progressive world. Even then, these songs don’t contain anything memorable. Hooks are peppered throughout, but they don’t dig in; they don’t grip. Once WHO MANIFEST is over, there’s no urge to listen again. It’s not a bad collection of tunes, it’s just not interesting in 2009.

I’m going to shelve WHO MANIFEST, but if their LP should happen to drop in my lap later this year then I’ll check it out. It is my estimation that this EP was cranked out by the former members of Novembers Doom in an effort to create some buzz for These Are They.
