Comments the band: “Actually we discussed the possibility of having no cover at all. We kinda liked the idea of boycotting the need of any so called “art” which bands try to get people’s attention with. The theme of the record is so one-dimensional and obvious that we decided to skip artwork and just put the title on the record to make it look more like an old book. A manifest, a challenge. We don’t want people to speculate about any meaning. The meaning is clear: kill, destroy, fuck shit up.”
Regarding the album title the band states: “The title Ode To The Flame is chosen in tradition of the debut record,Death By Burning to maintain the cleansing power of fire as the key theme. Fire is able to reset anything and will erase this planet one day from any plague that’s been around. Furthermore it’s obviously an ode to passion and iron will. Ode To The Flame isn’t dramatic, it’s drastic. By all means.”

MANTAR is a pure evil elemental force captured by only two uber passionate artists that strife for ultimate raw sonic power.
