Group from Iceland, combining in his album heavy blues - rock (Songur Satans and Eg Horfi A Brimid), hard (Lif Pitt) and heavy prog. There is also a ballad Litli Fuglinn and symphonic instrumental Preludia I A-Moll with violins and flutes . Top tracks are at the end of the album - heavy prog Sandkorn Pridja Heimsstyrjoldin. Manar were one of the groups that followed Trubrot, but the self-titled album Manar surpassed any albums of Trubrot. 11 songs cover a wide range of northern senses, offering powerful electric guitars gashes and melancholic vocals and Hammond. Some tracks are closer to folk-rock with their vocals, acoustic guitar, flute and piano (“Litli Fuglinn”). This classic album is recommended to fans of Old Man & The Sea and Junipher Greene. ...~


The band Mánar was formed in Selfoss in 1967 by guitar players and singers Ólafur Þórðarson and Guðmundur Benediktsson who had played together in the trio Bimbó since they were 13 years old, drummer Ólafur Bachmann and bass player Stefán Ásgrímsson. 
Stefán soon left the band and was replaced by Björn Gíslason. In the summer of 1967, Arnór Þórhallsson sang with the band and bass player Smári Kristjánsson also played with them. Soon after that Guðmundur Benediktsson left and was replaced by organ player Björn Þórarinsson. Mánar recorded three songs in 1970 and two of them were released on a single the same year. 
After the album was released Ólafur Bachmann left the band and was replaced by Ragnar Sigurjónsson. That line up recorded two songs that were released on another single in 1970. Singer Mary McDowell sang with Mánar that summer. 
The band then wrote some songs for an LP. They got Gunnar Þórðarsson to assist them in the last rehearsals before they went on a trip to Denmark in November 1971 to record the album. In1974, Mánar recorded two songs that were released on a compilation album and in 1975 the band split up....~
