Mantar signs with Nuclear Blast Records

Official press release: Northern Germany's infernal extreme metal duo Mantar have inked a worldwide record deal with Nuclear Blast. Commented the band: "We never had any plans to think this big with the band, but for some strange reason people seem to dig it. Within just two years we got the chance to play shitloads of shows all over Europe and the USA and meet people from all over the world. Actually, we were not even 100% sure if we wanted to do another record, but there were so many people out there who were begging for more that we just gave it a shot. Well, here we are... Glad to have found a powerful partner that puts trust in the band, respects our DIY background and is able to finally poison the whole world with our records. Never stop the madness!" Added Nuclear Blast head of A&R and label manager Andy Siry: "Mantar is the band we've been waiting for. Their sheer brutality and passion for honest and deep darkness just blew us away from the get-go. When we met it was just love at first sight. Mantar is as genuine as it gets - on a musical as well as on a personal level. So, in today's musical environment of copycats and polished plastic recordings you can tell we're super excited to be working with a band that is as unique as visionary!" Mantar are currently working on the successor to 2014's critically acclaimed debut album, Death By Burning. The band's second full-length album will be entitled Ode To The Flame and is tentatively scheduled for a spring 2016 release. Watch a brand new in-studio video here:
