1 +1 = MANTAR. The sludge metal duo from Bremen likes it puristic. Drums and guitar, that’s all the North German combo needs to send their fans into ecstasy. Their self-proclaimed goal: just to scrap. And they do that with the help of simple melodies, rhythms and riffs. Without any blast beats or double bass, MANTAR have been mixing up the scene since 2012. Their new album “Pain is Forever and This is the End” was released in 2022. On ten tracks, they beat us with poisonous vocals and booming guitars to communicate their world-weariness. We can look forward to such melodious tracks like “Piss Ritual” or “Hang ‘Em Low (So The Rats Can Get ‘Em)” at FULL FORCE 2023.
