Last Friday called for a great party, the Hamburg based duo MANTAR paid a visit to Paris of the North, Aalborg and left the venue 1000Fryd in ashes. How do you explain the musical style of the band? It is a Doom-laden explosion of energy, punkish Rock ‘N’ Roll and traces of Black Metal. Alas heavy thunderous riffs and rhythm patters, droning phases and an outburst of thundering drumming, wicked screams from the netherworld and blazingly fast-paced riffing with an icecold feel. If I have to use one word to describe, I think ‘intense’ will do just right! Thank you for a great gig guys, and thank you mr. Frank StÃ¶ver for turning my ears towards the band, a couple of years ago!
MANTAR have just released their second full length “Ode To The Flame” on Nuclear Blast Records, do check it out. Together with their first album “Death By Burning”, and don’t stop there, do also seek out their EPs ;). And be aware of the coming “St. Pauli Sessions”, a live album released on LP by Svart Records (who also released their first album), it is also outthere in a limited wooden box cassette tape release by Breathe Plastic Records.
