Indonesian black metal duo Mantash has released their debut album entitled Samiri on Kalacemeti Records.
The album released in May contains 15 concoctions of an atmosphere of dark chaos. The album “SAMIRI” was recorded in a classic analog live recording setup with high sensitivity analog recording techniques to capture the “wraith” of musical instruments and cosmic atmosphere. The audio recording process was executed by Mantash, in an empty haunted building dubbed “MORBID ALTAR”, located at the highest village on the island of Java, Indonesia.
The characteristic of the album being raw, dark, cold, and obscure was intentional by design with the aim of returninh the essence of aesthetic semiotic form of Black Metal.
Ahsanantrakh loudly revealed:
“Black Metal is not a matter of how great the music skill is or how good and neat the audio quality is, nor is it a copy-paste of the characters’ sounds from Black Metal devotees. But, this is a matter of honesty in presentin’ and revivin’ the atmosphere for our private motives purposes goals.”
