German extreme metal duo MANTAR have signed to Nuclear Blast Records.
Following the announcement, in a statement the band commented. “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 ********* 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!”
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.
