MANTAR Gets Way Darker With New Single "Hang 'Em Low (So The Rats Can Get 'Em)"

Still a good song, though.

Mantar has returned to us with a much darker vibe than before, thanks to their new single "Hang 'Em Low (So The Rats Can Get 'Em)." I mean seriously, this song has a really sinister feel to it and the music video certainly doesn't (or does) help.

"I just knew I wanted to write stronger 'songs' in relation to 'songwriting' and rely less on being an 'extreme' metal act that only convinces through a certain sound or general 'heaviness,'" said vocalist and guitarist Hanno about the new album. "Don't get me wrong, we still like to be heavy but the truth is neither [drummer and vocalist] Erinc nor I are much of 'extreme metal' musicians or fans. I mean of course there are several metal bands that I adore but for us the song always comes first. So I invested even more time on trying to write better songs, interesting structures and catchy tunes."

Mantar will release their Metal Blade debut Pain Is Forever And This Is The End on July 15. Pre-orders are available here.
