Mantar‘s third studio album, The Modern Art Of Setting Ablaze, was released last month via Nuclear Blast.
They recently released intense videos for singles ‘Age Of The Absurd’ – which can be viewed here: https://youtu.be/nTROA-AkXEE and ‘Seek + Forget’ – which can be viewed here: https://youtu.be/PHVOur94nD8.
The Modern Art Of Setting Ablaze is a title in keeping with Hanno’s symbolic obsession with fire on albums previous; this time disavowing mankind’s tendency to blindly follow those that would lead us into oblivion. This isn’t necessarily a political statement, more a morbid fascination with current smoldering tensions that threaten to set the minds of the masses on fire.
