MANTICORA: new video “Día De Los Muertos” out now


Danish progressive heavy metal band MANTICORA surprise-release today a new official video, of the track “Día De Los Muertos”. The song, present in the recently released new album from the quartet, titled “Mycelium”, has a lyric approach that deals with death in a rather uncommon way,

Upon driving in the mountains of Italy, I had a deep pondering on the vastness of the mountains and about all the souls that had been born, had lived and died while those mountains just stood there“, vocalist Lars F. Larsen recalls. “It made me want to write lyrics in Latin about remembering the dead. Turned out to be the Spanish title for “Day Of the Dead” and it fit the concept on the new album “Mycelium” album perfectly – we thereby pay tribute to the beautiful traditions from all over the world, where people celebrate life, through celebrating death“.

In how the song relates to the whole “Mycelium” concept, Lars says: “The song is about the urgent need for us to remember our dead ancestors, in order to stop a demon invasion from beyond our own realm and the music is really the most trademark Manticora song on the whole album
