MANTUS

MANTUS - Requiem


“Totgeglaubte leben länger!” The years of uncertainty and silence are over. This could well be the surprise of the year!

’Requiem’: the new album from MANTUS. A requiem mass? An obituary? No! For in the silent darkness a light shines on the horizon. True to the German motto that those presumed to be dead live longer, ‘Requiem’ really is a new album from MANTUS. A resurrection of the dead. Nobody knows what happened in the previous years. A creative pause? Dissolution and reinvention? The ‘obituary’ becomes a glance into the future: to a new beginning; a rebirth. Martin Schindler and Thalia rise to their high form of old and easily surpass the high standard of their most recent releases. In the tradition of German gothic music, almost forgotten in these times of visual kei, EBM and future pop, they create a dark-romantic gem. Metallic guitar riffs meet classical arrangements, full strings and piano chords. Electronic drum sounds mix with expressive melodies and sacral hymns, joined together with elegaic symphonies, over which the fascinating interaction of male and female vocals twinkles like a light shining in the darkness. The accustomed lyrical depth, beyond superficial cliches, comes across as perfect dark poetry in its purest form.

A must-have not only for MANTUS fans, who surely never counted upon this release. Also those who like LACRIMOSA and WITT won’t be able to pass up on ‘Requiem’ from MANTUS.
