MANTAR stream the entirety of their debut album, Death By Burning, at Terrorizer magazine’s website. The album is released today by SVART RECORDS on CD, LP, tape, and digital formats. Recorded earlier in 2013, Death By Burning is a raw, self-produced, and 100% DIY display of power. The half-German/half-Turkish band has existed for less than a year, and already momentum is building.

MANTAR manages to sound even heavier than most five-piece bands you may know, in spite of the fact that no bass guitar was used on Death by Burning – just drums and guitar set for destruction. Forget about rock ‘n’ roll: this will hurt. Flogging beats and blackened melodies meet feedback orgies and doom mayhem – early Melvins, Motorhead, Darkthrone, you name it. Don’t call it sludge, though. Everything as black as possible, a soundtrack for the final battle.
