It’s not strange to anyone that producing music demands a lot of resources and a big part of them comes down to finances. Mangel is a one-man melodic black metal project, which is represented by Marcel Levermann (also known for being the lead guitarist and songwriter of German power metal band Involution).

Morar - Chants of Ossian / support black metal
Morar is an entity of deep mystery; I don’t know who they are (no lineup announced) nor where they are from, though their bandcamp suggests Greenland in the tags line.
