Manzana kuuluu Suomen naisvetoisten raskaampien bändien ehdottomaan kärkeen, ja onkin kiertänyt viime vuosina lähinnä ulkomaita, niin kuin kentälle tyypilliseen tapaan kuuluu.

Manzana on julkaissut neljä levyä, joista kaksi on noussut Suomen viralliselle albumilistalle, tehnyt yhdeksän Euroopan kiertuetta, satoja Suomen keikkoja, ulkomaisia festivaaleja, sekä vakuuttanut metal-, punk- ja rock- piireissä omaperäisellä ärhäkällä asenteellaan jo kymmenen vuotta. 2016 yhtye teki kiertueen myös Kiinassa. 2017 bändi julkaisee viidennen levynsä ja tekee kiertueet Suomessa, Keski-Euroopassa ja Kiinassa.
