Chris Greenwood (Manafest) recently posted on Facebook that he was releasing a side project called “Stories Since Seventy Nine”. These seem to be less Hip-Hop inspired than his previous work. You can purchase the EP on iTunes

Promising iTunes previews, but it sounds to me just like his newest Manafest stuff (minus the hip-hop). I miss the rock he used to bring on “Epiphany” and “The Chase.”
I agree that is sounds a lot like his recent Manafest stuff, and it isn’t bad at all. From the previews only, I think I would like this EP more than “Fighter.” I’m just curious as to why he would make a side project like this. Maybe the lyrics are more about girls and stuff?
Boring. Anyone remember the Mislead Youth ep? So good. But it’s been a steady downhill since. :(
Hopefully his rock/pop style side-project means a return back to his roots as his original sound with Manafest. One can only hope, I guess. I miss the great rap rock (almost rapcore) sound he used to have…
All his albums are great, and this is coming from someone who still clings to his rapcore music collection.
What will you do when IVM is retired this July?
