Ever since their inception in 2013 and the release of their first full-length the following year, MANTAR has been recognized as one of the hardest working among the German extreme metal underground. Melding the most sinister elements of styles like black metal, doom and punk, representing unfiltered pure primal rage, MANTAR have proven to be one of a kind. Their extremely intense live shows have been seen all over the world and have blown away unaware audiences with their unconditionally tight and brutal performances. MANTAR is a pure evil elemental force captured by only two passionate artists that strife for ultimate raw sonic power.
MANTAR will inundate their native Germany with an exclusive run of shows this April beginning directly as Ode To The Flame is released, in addition to festivals throughout the Summer months. The band will also make its way to North America with confirmed appearances at Heavy Montreal, Psycho Las Vegas and California Deathfest with additional live infiltrations in their plotting stages.
