Mantar premiere new song “Era Borealis”

German extreme metal duo Mantar have debuted a new track online titled “Era Borealis”. The song is taken from the band’s upcoming Nuclear Blast debut Ode To The Flame, which arrives April 15th. Pre-orders are live and can be secured via the label at their online store.

The band offer of the release:

“The title Ode To The Flame is chosen in tradition of the debut record, Death By Burning to maintain the cleansing power of fire as the key theme. Fire is able to reset anything and will erase this planet one day from any plague that’s been around. Furthermore it’s obviously an ode to passion and iron will. Ode To The Flame isn’t dramatic, it’s drastic. By all means. We discussed the possibility of having no cover at all. We kinda liked the idea of boycotting the need of any so called ‘art’ which bands try to get people’s attention with. The theme of the record is so one-dimensional and obvious that we decided to skip artwork and just put the title on the record to make it look more like an old book. A manifest, a challenge. We don’t want people to speculate about any meaning. The meaning is clear: kill, destroy, fuck shit up.”
