From their basement studio in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, rises Man Made Sun. Headed by mastermind Ofer Tiberin, (former guitarist of the critically acclaimed rock band Emok, who moved to NY in 1998 from Israel and has been living in Brooklyn since 1999), Man Made Sun mixes up genres into an intense explosion of dark heavy beats, with hard driven Middle Eastern rhythms. The band will be releasing their self-released debut EP, More A Devil Than A God, in early 2013.
The band’s first offering was recorded and mixed by Tiberin at Momek Studios in Brooklyn and mastered by Maor Applebaum in California last year.

Man Made Sun was formed by Tiberin in late 2011 after his hard-hitting, much-lauded three piece rock band Emok, began to dissolve. At that time, Emok had begun to develop a loyal following and had received an enthusiastic response from the media for their record, Shove Your Head Into The Ground And Feed It To The Earth.
Towards the end of Emok, drummer Eran Asias (Julian Lennon, Patty Smyth) came on board to collaborate, and then became the official first member of Man Made Sun along with founder Tiberin. Guitarist Shahar Mintz (Meta and The Corner Stones) and bassist Mark Kelly rounded out the group, but soon after, Kelly was called to join The Roots, and Jonathan Levy (Izabo) stepped in on bass. It was immediately evident: this line up was the one.
Man Made Sun create a steeping mixture of dark rhythm and throbbing harmonics to match their very heartbeats. On More A Devil Than A God, the guys, each prolific professionals who have played around the world with a slew of great artists in a broad spectrum of genres, are dedicated to the art of creating raw, honest music. You can feel their passion in the power of Tiberin’s voice and the fury of the band’s music in every track they record and perform live.
