MANTICORA confirmed to play WACKEN OPEN AIR 2019


The Danish thrash/power concept masters in MANTICORA have been confirmed to play at the World’s largest heavy metal festival, WACKEN OPEN AIR in 2019!It is the second time, the band plays at the legendary festival – last time was in 2012, where MANTICORA played an awesome set in the Bull-tent.Guitarist, Kristian Larsen states:We are absolutely stoked and super-thrilled to join the club of bands that have played at Wacken several times. It’s not really something that happens to a lot of Danish bands, so for us it shows that the Wacken promoters have liked the huge concept of our new album and novel enough to put us on the fantastic roster in the Holy Land next year!! It’s fantastic that more and more promoters are seeing the light!We are looking forward to play some of our new songs for the fans, as well as some of our good old tunes.Please use the attached artwork for eventual updates on news pages.-After receiving fantastic feedback for their new album “To Kill To Live To Kill”, and having torn up the North American continent live, as support for Persefone in August and September, MANTICORA are also ready to pound Europe on their upcoming 4th European headliner tour, happening already on the spring.The tour, which will see the band again visiting a large part of Western Europe and Scandinavia will be taking place in March and the band promises to step it up on all parameters, when meeting the fans eye to eye.-MANTICORA have released 8 critically acclaimed albums (and a 334 page novel), since 1999, and toured numerous times around Europe as well as in North America + played at prestigious festivals, such as Wacken Open Air, Sweden Rock Festival, ProgPower USA, etc.
