Rebel Metal/Manny Comres BAD Is He Still At It?

Recommended Posts

Hi All,


I am sure a good number of folks here were victimized by the legendary Rebel Metal / Manny Comres person a few years back. I was wondering if he was still playing his game in Florida and any other possibly aliases he was working under. I was suspicious of an eBayer called eighteezmetal who had the same want list, behaviors in e-mails, etc.

I don't know...but our very own BrianJ knows him very well. In fact, he's his accountant. *ironic..ain't it*


Perhaps he could shed some light on that jackass. I've tried to get a cd from him that he's owed me for about a year and a half now.....

From what i know Manny is out of the game altogether, I have sold and bought some stuff from his ex-wife over the last year or so without a hitch, she is a class act.......

manny is now posing as a woman. i received an email from her/him asking for his usual requests. i did a little snooping and found that her email address was linked to a defunct AOL rebel metal account. when i asked her about manny she said he was just an old friend. too bad her replies were written in a mans tone. anyone that associates with this jerk is as guilty as Kobe, OJ and Scott Peterson.


here is his last address




3001 58th Ave. S. 514

St. Pete, Fl. 33712

isn't manny a black guy from honduras or one of those latin american countries?

I heard some whispers about strong ties between koogles & manny & PJ, not in a bad way but apparently manny has been involved with the behind the scenes aspect of kissmydisc.com over the years, cn anyone confirm this?



PJ hasn't been in contact with Manny for years.

Dude... you are WORSE than an outcast from a Jerry Springer episode... dude- anything to get some press huh? hehehehe... Manny? Black? Involved with me? Kissmydisc? hehehehe... Ok, you asked for it... you've summoned, I'll reply. :)


Yeah, many of us old timers (I'm a whoppin' 26 years of age- I feel old! hehehe), who were around in this online scene back in the heyday of eBay (remember when Freddy Curci - Dreamer's Road CDs were going for $160? hehehe)... back when Kissmydisc.com (now kissmydisc.ca) was known as Stainless Steel.com... back ion those days, it seemed that two names ruled the trading circles... Manny Comras, and Todd (forgot his last name)... Yeah- Manny screwed me ina few trades (discs never received, wrong titles, etc). The reputation he carved for himself won't die any time soon. Despite all this, I do owe the guy one tip of the hat... the very first trade I EVER made online- before I even knew how to send an email to someone, was with him. Pure chance/coincidence... found his site- with the help of a friend, looking for (what I thought at the time were the rarest cds in the world...) Helloise, Malice, Skagarack, White Sister, etc... he had some of these and I was floored... anyway, long story short, we ended up makin a few trades, some worked out, some didn't. However, resulting from him gettin' my feet wet and introducing me to the scene, showin' me the ropes... I eventually built the household brand name known across the globe as Kissmydisc.


Manny never was involved in any direct (or indirect) manner with Kissmydisc, beyond a few trades we made. About 3 years ago or so, while on a trip to Florida (I used to reguarly clean out every state, every city/town, and village on the U.S. map), I contacted him- tellin' him I'll be cleanin' out his backyard. We arranged a meeting.... I bought a few more cds from him, we had a few beers (actually, a few too many- I admit, I was no match for him- he took me round after round in the chuggin' contest).. talked about the scene, other traders, etc- learned some more... by that time, I was on top of my game, while he was nothing more than a shamed "has-been" on his way out. He was beginning a career as a legal counsellor, just finishing school. As far as I know now, he is involved full time in the legal profession (he chuckled about this too when I met him, considering the reputation he had... then again, on second thought- it makes perfect sense, hehehe). I have not seen him nor heard from him since then. My bet, is he's out of the scene completely. Then again... who knows? Anything's possible these days. If someone can find dozens of "The Cauze" cds out of the blue, and offer them on a weekly basis, I guess anything's possible right? hehehe... sorry- had to toss that one in, I only read the vegasmetal - related post earlier today (never got a chance to read it when it was initially online).


As for Andy (Australia... OZ... few posts above)... dude- you too, are one of the people who fed me when I was a toddler in this scene- teachin' me plenty (I'll give you credit for that)... and were a great friend for a very long time, but you know how irritating I find it when you randomly make up all these ridiculous Jerry Springer-style stories for shock value, or just for the sake of having someone listen to you... there was a time when all you had to do to get attention was list a few of the major pieces you had available for trade... you know the mighty have fallen when the only way you can get attention now, is by tossin' around stories like this....



.....ahhh it's good to be back. :)


More to come... (wonder if anyone even bothered reading this far... heheheh).

i wish aileen wuornos would have got ahold of this piece of crap before florida executed her. if the mertz mobile could make it to florida i would turf his patch of grass and tag his trailer. i hope the next hurricane washes his butt out to sea with the 9 cds he stole from me. not that i am bitter or anything.

    • I try to give albums a proper go before I write them off. Closest I would say would be cats In Space Atlantis. Narnia was SO good that my expectations were extremely high and the album was average on first couple of listens. I let it go for a few months, then came back to it with anopen mind and loved it. Otherwise I can probably pick songs. God Of Thunder I didn't like for many many years and eventually it grew on me.  
    • I left this comment on the promo for "Flames," and I feel like it applies to every song I've heard from this project so far, too:  "Great song, great singer, but I feel like the compression of the production takes away from the quality of the songwriting and puts a damper on Ken's playing."
    • Vain, yes it's one band i never really got into it. Just last week I spent about 30 mins listening to their most popular songs, I dont know what it is but the songs dont do much for me. But i do like one of their songs a lot 'No tears for you', and Whisper is pretty good too. And a few I do like to some degree, that's about it. 
    • Listening to it now (I know I'm late)... Some starter notes, that have no doubt been mentioned here already, but I didn't read through the whole thread: -Production is overdone. I don't know why, when Tobias Lindell had done such a masterful job mixing their last few records, he would do this?  -I've always liked H.E.A.T better with Kenny than with Erik. Not because I think Kenny is a better singer by any stretch (though I do think Kenny's voice is underrated when comparisons of the two inevitably arise), but for the same reason I prefer Danger Danger with Ted Poley to Paul Laine. Kenny's voice is, to me, part of the sound of H.E.A.T and I felt like it was missing the longer Erik was the vocalist with the band, even though 3/4 of the records they did with him were phenomenal. -For the first time, I feel like H.E.A.T doesn't know where they're going. On previous records, there was a distinct direction they were clearly striving for -- the original self-titled album and Freedom Rock were clearly products of their influences and the albums that followed with Erik Gronwall showed the growth and maturity of their playing, songwriting and the budding production skills of Jonah Tee. But I can't figure out if Force Majeure is meant to be a step forward or a step back. I wouldn't go so far as to say that any of the songs are bad, but there's not a single banger present here, as far as I'm concerned, which I was not expecting. -I also feel like this is the first time you can really hear Eric Rivers's absence since he left the band after Tearing Down the Walls. Into the Great Unknown being an anomaly altogether guitar wise and H.E.A.T II being a phenomenal return to the stage for Dave Dalone, Force Majeure is the first time I've really thought to myself, "Man, there could really be another guitar track here," which might be why they felt the need to compensate with the over-the-top production?   All in all, is it bad? No, I wouldn't go that far. But as far as H.E.A.T albums go, it falls extremely short of the ridiculously high standard they've set for themselves over the course of their career.   But hey, it's better than Into the Great Unknown.
    • Yeah, a few times. Unfortunately, it didn't live up to all the hype. 
    • Ok the title was clickbait, first dislike and then later like would be more accurate but hey, you clicked on the topic, so it worked! 😬
    • As a few others mentioned, musically it isn't too far off from their early material, but the song itself doesn't do much for me unfortunately.   In watching the video it looks like they've got a new drummer.
    • White Lion's Big Game was a massive letdown after Pride but over the years it's grown on me. Cinderella's Heartbreak Station was always way too bluesy and too far removed from the debut but again the quality of the songs sunk in after about 15 years. Spread Eagle's Open To The Public was a bit of a letdown compared to the debut but there's enough strong stuff on it once it gets under your skin to enjoy it. Whitesnake's Slip of the Tongue was another real letdown post 1987. Vai didn't do the songs any favours but again there's a pretty good collection of songs once I got over my disappointment. Anything by Harem Scarem after the debut. Still there best for me by a long shot but heaps of solid albums in the mix. Shotgun Messiahs 3rd industrial album. On first listen wtf but songs are fkn awesome. Same goes with  Wasp's KFD.
    • I've mentioned it before, but I wasn't in love with either Roxx Gang's 'Things you've never done before' or Vain's 'No Respect' when I first heard them. That was in the early stages, though. Vain's in one of my top 10 albums and I love the Roxx Gang one too, so things certainly changed.  Neither are exactly my favourite albums ever, but Cinderella's 'Heartbreak station' and Warrant's 'Ultraphobic' both took a long while for me to come around on. I actually returned the Cinderella CD when I bought that one, and only re-purchased it second hand many years later. Still don't love it, but dislike it less, lol.  To answer Karpetface's question, not to the degree of hatred, but back in the day when all I ever had were CDs and cassettes and once they were bought they were bought, I tended to give everything a lot more chances than I would today, where music consumption is the polar opposite. When I only had dozens, or up until it was a couple of hundred albums... the time to give something a chance again seemed to come around a lot more often than these days, when there's a million songs to choose from all the time.
