Mantric Sign With Prosthetic Records
Prosthetic Records has signed Norway’s Mantric to the label for a worldwide, multi-album deal. First up for the Norwegian band, formed in 2007 out of the ashes of Extol, will be their as-yet-untitled debut album scheduled for a February release. The album was recorded with Scandinavian studio legend Tue Madsen (Dark Tranquility, the Haunted).
Mantric have commented on the partnership with Prosthetic, saying, “We are truly satisfied to end up signing with Prosthetic! Our first album using the Mantric name to our ears deserves to get out to lovers of hard music all over the world, and Prosthetic makes this possible. We also feel honored to be amongst the quality and variety represented by the bands signed to Prosthetic.
“Our music embraces creativity and originality outside the limits of narrow genres, so it suits us fine to deal with a label that also values this. This is a release that is both accessible and original, catchy and complex at the same time, and we can’t wait to get it out!”
The deal with Mantric marks Prosthetic’s first worldwide signing of a European band. European label manager Duncan Dinsdale states: “I’m very excited to be working with a band of such pedigree. I’ve been a huge fan of Extol for a long time, and now Mantric are making truly urgent music that reaffirms my faith in what challenging heavy music should be.”
A special preview track of Mantric’s ‘Spear of Heaven,’ is available now.
