Manitou is a totally unknown progressive metal band formed in 1985 in Norway around the excellent vocalist 'yvind H'geland (who would later will sing in Spiral Architect and Arcturus). The band released a single album in 1995 named "Entrance", and an ep in 1990 almost ten years after the band got together, but the expectation were great in prog metal field. The music is very technical, yet accessible for all progressive metal listeners. The music sounds like Fates Warning and Watchtower combined with brilliant vocal parts made by Haegeland. Definetly a lost gem in this world of progressive metal, with catchy hooks and awesome musicianship, some very inspired guitar passages. Soon after this release they broke up and went into oblivion. Recommended for those who enjoy Fates Warning, Spiral Architect, Watchtower and especially technical progressive metal.
