»The Modern Art Of Setting Ablaze« is a title in-keeping with MANTAR‘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 smouldering tensions that threaten to set the minds of the masses on fire. Find the cover below this message. The band is currently on the road, playing select club shows as well as Europe’s biggest festivals.

When my old buddy Kenn Jensen asked me if I wanted to contribute to the new site he had created, then called, I didn't hesitate. My love for metal music was and is great. I wrote my first review during the summer of 2004 (Moonspell's 'Antidote' album). In 2015, I took over the editor-in-chief role.
