Monstrous black/doom/punk chimera Mantar have announced the details for their upcoming third studio album.
The band’s new album will be entitled The Modern Art Of Setting Ablaze, it includes 12 songs and is set to be unleashed on August 24th via Nuclear Blast.
The Modern Art Of Setting Ablaze is a title in keeping with Hanno‘s symbolic obsession with fire on albums previous; this time disavowing mankind‘s tendency to blindly follow those that would lead us into oblivion. This isn‘t necessarily a political statement, more a morbid fascination with current smoldering tensions that threaten to set the minds of the masses on fire.
The band is currently on the road, due to play Bloodstock Festival on 12th August as well as playing select club shows and some of Europe’s biggest festivals. See dates below.
