CVLT Nation – Mantar

Here is a sample of the interview conducted by Nick for CVLT Nation. The two of you just recently got signed to Nuclear Blast, congratulations! Has this signing made you feel more of a sense of opportunity for different types of endeavors? Of course, being on Nuclear Blast offers a lot of stuff we could not do before. Like shooting a video, or having someone paying for our super insanely expensive US visas for touring over here. Plus, of course they have very good in-house promotion and a lot of people…

Metal Injection – Squared Circle Pit – SquaredCirclePit #4 – Hanno from MANTAR Talks Learning American Pop Culture From Pro Wrestling

This was quite an enlightening conversation for me. I spoke to Hanno from Mantar, an awesome new death-and-roll duo. Hanno is from Germany so it was fascinating learning how a German person interpreted the overly nationalistic storylines of the WWF at the time. Hanno talks his favorite moments from the early 90s, his favorite wrestlers and perhaps the greatest retelling of the Yokozuna Body Slam challenge I have ever heard. We also discuss Doink the Clown, I.R.S., Abe “Knuckle Ball” Schwartz and the Macho Man.

Metal Rules – Mantar – Hanno

Guten abend – Hows it going there in the Mantar camp ? Alright so far. Enjoying my last days in my new home in Florida before I go back to Europe and start the festival season 2016. Excited! Before going any further, as Mantar is relatively a new band coming from Germany to most of readers, therefore it would be awesome to start an interview by asking how Mantar came about ? We know each other for more than 18 years. Met in Bremen in the late 90s when i…

The Sideshow Podcast – Episode 235: Wormed, North, Walls of Jericho 2016 Album Reviews + Mantar, Devildriver, Weekend Nachos, Fallujah, Thrice Previews

We inadvertently (and kinda loosely) have a theme of space in our album reviews this week.  One quite obviously deals with outer-space and sic-fi themes.  Another manages to use the space of the soundstage to it’s fullest potential, creating atmosphere and layers.  The last…well, the last we just kinda want to put a lot of space between us and the album.  Like I said – loosely themed.  Oh, and we also made space for some more First Impressions!
