HATRED FOR MANKIND

ONE HALF OF BLACKENED SLUDGE DUO MANTAR MAY HAVE UPPED STICKS FROM GERMANY TO LIVE IN THE SWAMPLANDS OF AMERICA, BUT THAT HASN’T STOPPED THEM UPPING THE ANTE OF 2014’S ‘DEATH BY BURNING’ BY CREATING ‘ODE TO THE FLAME’. GUITARIST/VOCALIST HANNO TALKS NEW ALBUMS, BLACK METAL, ISOLATION AND MORE…

“We had no plan at all on the first record. Originally we just wanted to make a demo tape we could play to our friends, so we jammed for three months and recorded what we had. Then Svart Records got involved. With ‘Ode To The Flame’ we didn’t change our approach. We kept it very raw. It’s great to have a label like Nuclear Blast behind us but we are still very DIY in attitude.”

Hanno, the mouthpiece and guitar slinging half of German duo Mantar, is as straight talking as his music would suggest. While ‘Ode To The Flame’ sees a move to a larger label with Nuclear Blast, Hanno and drummer/ vocalist Erinc still oversee the majority of the band’s business affairs, adopting a very ‘hands on’ approach.

About Terrorizer Magazine

It’s always an interesting proposition to see how a band progresses from working with true, cult indie labels to working with multi-national major labels. How money can transform a pure idea into (potentially) a much bigger entity and consumerbased product; can an idea, a sound, an image transcend into the broader palette without being spoiled from its original form? Or does it really matter at all what label a band is on these days? Do you, the reader and listener, truly care if an artist releases music on an indie or via the corporate bigwig? It is all business, no matter who is controlling the purse strings. Why am I pondering this right now? I guess it’s because our cover stars this month are the mighty Purson. No stranger to these pages, it’s wonderful to see Purson really coming of age on their new album, the major label released ‘Desire’s Magic Theatre’. It’s a great follow-up to their previous, indie released debut and really captures a band who mean business (again). Nothing has changed in that sense regardless of the label behind the band, and frankly, they were always going to end up on a Terrorizer cover because their music rocks and they thoroughly deserve the accolade. We hope you enjoy their latest story as much as we have enjoyed producing it. As always, the rest of this issue has been a joy to create and features some of the best bands in the extreme and underground metal scenes. Never enough pages as I’d like to write about every band myself and the team love, but it’s entirely flash-in-the-pan/fad-free and that’s the main thing, right?! See you next month!
