... ... Mani Deum ~ Greek Alternative bands

The IndieFunda Project

The indiefunda project is a collaboration of independent artists around the globe, who want to create a platform where an independent artist will be able to have financial aid directly from his/hers audience. Check it out!

May Roosevelt

Influenced by the very reverend trinity of Bach, Björk and Klaus Nomi, May Roosevelt is an extraordinary thereminist, composer and producer with a sense for good, old-fashioned drama. Her classical arrangements will give you the shivers (or, at the very least, remind you of movies that gave you the shivers), with nods to early industrial or electronic music and a passing resemblance to the god of thunder behind a theremin. Like many people, she got into music via her first Casio synth as a kid. If her knack for otherworldly sounds is anything to go by, that Casio must have been possessed by some very restless and musical ghosts.


2L8 is the project of K the Clown and a team of collaborators and musicians based in Thessaloniki, North Greece.

Berlin Brides

The Berlin Brides’ sound is a hybrid of electro, punk and powerpop. They were founded on September 2007 by Natasha Giannaraki, lyricist and lead singer and Marilena Orfanou, keybordist and composer who gives the band its electronic identity. Conceived in Berlin and formed in Greece, they are reinventing the music scene in Athens with their caustic lyrics and their combustible live performances.

Electric Litany

The story of the band started, when Alexandros and Richard met in London. Alexandros moved from Corfu to London, while Richard was leaving Devonshire for London in search of forming a band of his own. Duane was the last member to join the band, since he was found by Alex and Richard through an ad. Their first rehearsals were taking place in some pretty unusual places, like abandoned and derelict buildings.

New Zero God

New Zero God is a Greek punk/post punk rock band formed in 2006. Their popularity in Greece may be due to the veteran musicians who make up the band; as most Greek rock fans were already familiar with Mike Pougounas and Averkios Hadjiantoniadis from The Flowers Of Romance, which is considered a legendary Greek gothic rock group.

Mani Deum

P. started Mani Deum in 2005 as a project dedicated to the band that was and still remains the main source of inspiration either in music or poetry, Current 93. In late 2005, P. started writing the first Mani songs and slowly took their personal form as a folk noire/ experimental band.

In late 2006 man0s . K joined Mani Deum and the recordings led to the first demo CD that was ready one month later. In the beginning of 2007 Elisabeth (former En-Garde vocalist) joined Mani Deum as the female vocalist. A few months later Francesca became the cellist of the band and in June 2007 Eygenia (Piano) joins the band. For the needs of the live performances Jason (Bass & Percussion) joins the band and so Mani Deum took their current form.

Mani Deum have appeared for some time on Nocturne Experimental Radio and several other online radio stations, have participated on the 3rd compilation of www.neo-folk.it which you can download for free and in June 2007 they were interviewed by Major Tom on Athens International Radio.

Mani Deum have performed alongside Allerseelen, Paul Roland, While Angels Watch, Defile Des Ames and Svarrogh.

“And I tried to help me pass the Time
With Blood Pollution in my mind
And I see dust was in the air
Infected Kittens everywhere…” 



Does anybody have the Lyrics to Everythings and Nothings?
