Manitou

Manitou may ultimately be remembered for producing Øyvind Hægeland, who has gone on to star in several prominent Norwegian bands of late, but they deserve as much recognition for the one album they put out in their abbreviated career. Entrance is an excellent technical progressive metal album, borrowing heavily from mid-period Fates Warning as well as a touch of Control And Resistance-era Watchtower, creating an outstanding first album for a group that really should have gone much farther. Whether Hægeland's departure caused the band breakup or vice versa is not known, but only the one album was ever recorded. A difficult album to find, but seriously recommended to tech metal fans.
