about

THANK YOU to all of you that have supported my work over the years, that have bought my music either through Crunch Pod or Auricle Media. It is because of you that I'm now able to share this new body of work with you.

Dedicated to the memory of Leonard Cohen, David Bowie, Jim Carroll & Lou Reed. All were hugely influential in my life and art, and all died during the span of these recordings.

- Karloz. M

--

When body, mind, heart and soul have been ravaged beyond comprehension, a profound warm darkness sets in and permeates time, space, energy and matter. Everything means nothing, all is both lost and gained. Minutes become years and decades become seconds. A drop of water might hold the answers; the universe dissipates like smoke through fire. A dream is a lifetime lived in parallel worlds. Eros & Thanatos, Pacanchique & Idacansás.

Colombian producer, gypsy and recluse known as Karloz.M returns once again under the moniker of Manufactura, the now infamous, obscure underground cult-like project of various dark electronic subcultures to offer up the project’s 8th album titled "Absence: Into The Ether and The Void".

"Absence: Into The Ether and The Void" moves further into different elements of darkness and madness, blending genres, styles and techniques under the familiar dark cloud that Manufactura has now developed a reputation for, over several years.

Track Name: Dissident Perceptions (MNFCTR & ZOYA HEBAN)
A stolen moment
our final words
a broken mirror
a bloody floor
Track Name: Miami & Gomorrah
Vapid & Frail
Faked to be made

On your knees
or on your way

Flesh for money
Flash for fame

This empire wont burn
but drown
in misery
from the depths
from the flood
of a staunch
debauchery

a heathens dream
a sinners love
Track Name: Graceless Fantasy
it's the end of grace
and it's written all over your face
your actions are hard
to explain
as you struggle to make out the words

don't say you're sorry
don't patronize me

you're so predictable
you're so easy to read

I thought you had a stronger game

It's the end
its the end of grace
and you're covered all over
with shame
every step you take
is covered in pain
as you struggle to find
your way

you're forever lost
Track Name: The Poisoned Thorn
You wandered into my heart
by some tragic mistake
you'll find the love you seek
comes with a heavy price

soft as the moonlight
your skin burns so bright
red as the flower
your heart tastes like wine

it can be whatever you want it to be
just close your eyes and make believe

soft as the moonlight
your flesh burns so bright
red as the flower
your heart tastes like wine
Track Name: Misery Guts & Vacant Desires (My Favorite Mistake)
and now you're free
like a moth to the flame
Track Name: Parasites in Paradise
I tried but I failed, to illuminate your heart
I tried but I failed, to desensitize your pain
I tried but I failed, to get rid of all your fears
I tried but I failed, to enlighten you with love
I tried but I failed, to protect you from the cold
I tried but I failed, to shelter you from ham

We’re parasites in paradise
And paradise is filled with lies

I tried but I failed, to illuminate your heart
By ripping it apart
I tried but I failed, to desensitize your pain
With a bag of cocaine
You know I tried, but I failed to get rid of all your fears
And replace them with tears
I tried but I failed, enlighten you with love
When all you wanted was lust
I tried but I failed, protect you from the cold
By setting you on fire
I tried but I failed, to shelter you from ham
By leaving you to rot

I tried but I failed
To murder all your dreams
In so many ways

We’re parasites in paradise
And paradise is filled with lies

Disengage your body
And fellate my mind
Track Name: Predator (MNFCTR & DANIEL MYER)
I've seen the chaos
I've lived in shadows
I know the wisdom
"The world needs more blood"

and if I follow
your broken footsteps
I'll always be
another for your gallows

you're a predator in motion
searching for devotion
lost without emotion
in and endless empty ocean

every single fool
you've captured in your own web
is just another mistake
that takes a piece from you

you're a predator in motion
searching for devotion
lost without emotion
in and endless empty ocean

I know your kind
I know your instincts
I'm just another like you
another beast of prey

you're a predator in motion
searching for devotion
lost without emotion
in and endless empty ocean
Track Name: The foreshadowing of their own mortality (MNFCTR & STEVEN WARD)
I set a course
to unending darkness
yet there still persists
a very dim light

I know this is your light
I know this is your sign
Track Name: Parallel Worlds
I want to pursue
what was already there

The enticement of words
the ravage of hearts

we're caught in a vice
in the slaughter of time

eradicate thoughts
of the memoirs of skin

parallel worlds
and parallel lives
for parallel loves
in parallel graves

I was born to die
I was born to kill

with a noose or the dagger
the desire for murder

so dance with me
slowly till the
end
dance with me
slowly
till the end

parallel worlds
and parallel lives
for parallel loves
in parallel graves

what is real?
the swiftness of lies
or the venom of lust

but the soul
never dies

dance with me
slowly
till the end
Track Name: Abysmal Oblivion
Begin to understand
by the wounded hand
that sets hearts to purpose
through reverence
and solitude
with greed and avarice
as they deride desire
expressed by simple gestures
like children bound
by the fire
and blind
to deceit
