ALL PRE-ORDERS WILL RECEIVE TWO MANTICORA GUITAR PICKS FOR FREE!
Thrash, prog, power, black, death + pure heavy metal and everything else, your metalheart desires, put into one album, is usually what MANTICORA is all about. The band, that started out in 1997 – nine albums ago – as a power metal outfit, has transformed and thereby developed their own unique style of heavy metal – a melting pot of everything you want to hear, as a genuine metal fan.
Welcome to “Mycelium”
After their grandiose, critically acclaimed two-album concept from 2018/2020 plus a 334-page novel (written by the band’s singer Lars F. Larsen), which the albums were based on – the Danes have scaled down a bit and written another majestic concept album, but this time only spanning a 48-minute mark, in total.
“Mycelium”, the new opus, is less symphonic and with an angrier, raw approach, with aggressiveness as the main-focus. Manticora has created a DIY album, where the only outside influence has been the mastering (done by Jacob Hansen at Hansen Studios). Everything else is crafted by the band: concept, lyrics, music, production, artwork – you name it, Manticora provides.
High-octane metal, which is only recommended for the strong at heart.
