Tour kicks off this Saturday in Bogota, Columbia followed by dates in Mexico, the US, and Europe
German sludge metal duo Mantar are kicking off the final dates of their 2023 tour cycle for their current album Pain Is Forever And This Is The End (July 15, 2022). The band’s South American dates with Assassin kick off this Saturday in Bogota, Columbia at Herbívoro and will conclude on September 10 in São Paulo, Brazil at the Setembro Negro Festival. From there, Mantar will head to Mexico, New York City, then off to Europe.
“It’s always extremely exciting touring completely new countries and territories for the first time. There is just this certain magic in meeting new people, fans and cultures. Most of Latin America is new to us, but we have been to Mexico before once which marks one of the highlights of our career. Coming back there and also traveling to other Latin American countries have been on our bucket list for many years. The kindness and (positive) craziness of the people down there is unparalleled.” Hanno Klänhardt

Founded in 2012, Mantar stands among the leading forces in extreme metal within the last ten years. Loved by fans and press alike, the band took the world by storm with their truly unique sound, leading them to the Top 10 in the official German album charts with 2018’s The Modern Art Of Setting Ablazeand sold out shows throughout Europe.
Mantar‘s current full-length album, Pain Is Forever And This Is The End, was released via Metal Blade Records on July 15, 2022 and hit charts in the US and Europe including #2 Official German Album Charts, #43 Top 100 Swiss Album Charts, #60 Current Hard Music (Billboard USA), and #69 Top 75 Austria.
Earning critical accolades both stateside and abroad, Decibel Magazine hails a, “burning Molotov cocktail of black metal, sludgy hardcore, and classic metal hooks,” adding, “their latest studio album may be their best yet.” Rock Hard writes, “Pain Is Forever… skillfully keeps the balance between brute destructive fury and dense atmosphere in widescreen format with real underground hit potential,” while Metal Injectionchampions the band’s, “thicker grooves, anthemic refrains, head nodding rhythms and a greater exploitation of the fist-in-the-air-ology school of songwriting.“
