Mantar, the German extreme metal duo, will release their new album, Ode to the Flame, on April 15th, through Nuclear Blast. But for now you can immerse yourself in the new track “Schwanenstein,” which made its premiere over at Noisey, but you can listen to it in the player above.
If you want more, then head over to Noisey for a killer interview with guitarist/vocalist Hanno and drummer/vocalist Erinc, where they talk about not wanting to be a part of some scene and how they negotiated their record deal with Nuclear Blast in totally kick-ass fashion.
Pre-orders are available here.
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.
