Ode To The Flame is the nihilistic new full-length from Northern Germany-based infernal metal duo, MANTAR. Out now on Nuclear Blast, the record is currently available in CD, vinyl, and digital formats. In conjunction with its release, MANTAR recently issued the video accompaniment to "Cross The Cross."

The clip was initially premiered in North America via MetalSucks who hailed "not just any new music video... but a new music video from which is so entertaining as to justify the continued existence of music videos...This clip for 'Cross The Cross' feels like Ingmar Bergman made a hip-hop video. That may sound like an odd aesthetic for MANTAR's bone-vaporizing brand of death 'n' roll, but done with as much droll verve as director Dave Barbaree has displayed here, and it ends up being the perfect showcase for this crushed windpipe of a song."



MANTAR will inundate their native Germany with an exclusive run of shows this month which kicked off this past weekend. The band will also level the stages of several festivals throughout the Summer months and make its way to North America with confirmed appearances at Heavy Montreal, Psycho Las Vegas and California Deathfest. Additional live infiltrations are in the plotting stages.
