Ritual Cleansing Of The Whore
(Merciless Records)

If you like it dark and brutal, blasphemous and a hundred fucking percent evil, than be sure to check out this new US underground sensation and believe me, I do not exaggerate!!! MANTICORE mix the blackened, hateful intensity of BEHERIT, DEMONCY or old SAMAEL with the raw Death Metal heaviness of old INCANTATION and the primitive charme of NUNSLAUGHTER into a crushing anti-christian cocktail I promise you will never forget! The vocals consist mostly of sick and mocking screams, spiced up with some sinister growls and creepy, unholy whispering. Riffs and blasts show MANTICORE's Death Metal roots and songs like the fantastic, brutal 'Visions Of Demonic Perversion', 'Eve Of Satan's Millenium' or my personal fave - the infernal hymn 'Destruction Of The Holy Light' prove like the other three songs, that this horde is capable of writing fucking killer songs!!! MANTICORE unite the hateful and blasphemous atmosphere of Black Metal with the heavy punch of Death Metal in perfection, a talent only a few acts in today's underground scene have. The intense feeling the three guys from Ohio create on this MCD is simply awesome!!! Be sure to get the vinyl version of "Ritual Cleansing Of The Whore", because it contains three great bonus tracks and is strictly limited to 666 unholy copies! Damn, I might have sounded a bit subjective in this review, but this is my honest opinion!!! MANTICORE's "Ritual Cleansing Of The Whore" is an onslaught of brutal Black / Death from the deepest tracts of hell. I've seen them live with BLACK WITCHERY, ARMAGEDDA and AVENGER this year and they fucking kill on stage as well!!! This is no faggot trend stuff, this is pure old school darkness, everyone out there, who's into the bands I mentioned above should definitely give them a chance, MANTICORE deserve it!!! Contact: MANTICORE, 1241 Cranford, Lakewood OH 44107, USA Email: or , if you think about buying this MCD / LP be sure to check out a MANTICORE MP3 file on their label's website:
