MANTAR – ODE TO THE FLAME TOUR 2017

mantar tour 2017 webPresented by: RTN-Touring, Nuclear Blast, Deaf Forever, VISIONS, Metal Hammer, Metal.de, Metalnews.de

Idleness is certainly nothing that can be associated with MANTAR.

Founded in 2013, the band has already seen more international stages in only three years than ever expected, considering their line up and musical style. But hard work, persistence, and constant touring, combined with absolute intransigence has made the band well known and even legendary across the underground and beyond.

With two highly acclaimed deep-black records in tow, MANTAR has toured all over Europe and – already for the 4th time – the US, to confirm their reputation as a bile-spitting live-monster. So it’s no surprise that they couldn’t just sit and rest in 2016. In the course of their most current album release “Ode to the Flame” (Nuclear Blast), the Bremen-based duo played selected club shows and festivals all over the world and will continue to share their minimalistic-sinister sound in 2017. On their upcoming “Ode to the Flame” – Tour, 15 shows in Germany, Switzerland, France, and the Netherlands have been confirmed so far. More shows and a killer festival summer will be announced soon. 

MANTAR is  going to be supported by the Thuringian sledgehammer DESERTED FEAR, who bring just as much energy and authenticity to the stages as the headlining act. It’s well deserved that they are called one of Germany’s most talented Death Metal Bands. They’re going to bring their newest musical offspring ‘Death Shores Rising’; out in January 2017.

The lineup is completed by Dresden (GER) based DEATHRITE, who created their own unique sound by uniting the most severe elements of Death Metal, Grind Core and Punk and are promising to have a yaw-dropping performance on stage.

Prepare yourself for this toxic live package!
