FFO: Melvins, Motorhead, Darkthrone
MANTAR’S “DEATH BY BURNING” SET FOR UK RELEASE OF FEBRUARY 24TH ON SVART RECORDS
“I am War, I am Filth, I am Pain, I am Rage, I am Speed or better yet, this is how I feel when I listen to the new album by MANTAR entitled Death By Burning” CVLT NATION
February 2014 sees the two piece German monster MANTAR release their debut album on Svart Records. Recorded earlier in 2013 and titled “Death By Burning”, the album is a raw, self produced and 100% DIY display of power. The half German, half Turkish band has existed for less than a year and released one limited run 7″ – probably sold out by the time you read this.
MANTAR manages to sound heavier than most five piece bands you may know, in spite of the fact that no bass guitar was used on this record. Just drums and guitar set for destruction. Forget about Rock ‘n Roll. This will hurt. Flogging beats and blackened melodies meet feedback orgies and doom mayhem. Early Melvins, Motorhead, Darkthrone. You name it. Don’t call it sludge though. Everything as black as possible. A soundtrack for the final battle.
Svart Records will unleash the black 10 track attack on February 24th on CD, LP, tape and digital.
Here’s the 1st public track from the album, “White Nights”
