Mantar to release new album in April
Official press release: Northern Germany's infernal extreme metal duo Mantar, will release their Nuclear Blast Records debut, Ode To The Flame, worldwide on April 15th. Comments the band: "Actually we discussed the possibility of having no cover at all. We kinda liked the idea of boycotting the need of any so called "art" which bands try to get people's attention with. The theme of the record is so one-dimensional and obvious that we decided to skip artwork and just put the title on the record to make it look more like an old book. A manifest, a challenge. We don't want people to speculate about any meaning. The meaning is clear: kill, destroy, fuck shit up." Regarding the album title the band states: "The title Ode To The Flame is chosen in tradition of the debut record, Death By Burning to maintain the cleansing power of fire as the key theme. Fire is able to reset anything and will erase this planet one day from any plague that's been around. Furthermore it's obviously an ode to passion and iron will. Ode To The Flame isn't dramatic, it's drastic. By all means." Ode To The Flame track list: 01. Carnal Rising 02. Praise The Plague 03. Era Borealis 04. The Hint 05. Born Reversed 06. Oz 07. I, Omen 08. Cross The Cross 09. Schwanenstein 10. Sundowning
