In the heart of nature, when the call of the void overcomes the fear of heights, ritual performance takes on its meaning.
In a secret and inaccessible place, the band put the spotlight on Simon Saint-Georges’s Telecaster during a guitar playthrough on the song “Marcasite”, shot in the French wilderness. An epic track of 8 minutes that opens the band’s new album and plunges you into the primitive and wild universe of the valley of “Laniakea”.
An exclusivity by It Djents, who is trusting Mantra once again. Video shot, directed and edited by the talented drummer of the band, Gabriel Junod.
Thanks to Season of Mist, Code 7 and Skull Strings.

“We are pleased and proud to unveil the cover of our second album entitled “ANNIHILATING THE SHADES” !! It’s gonna be released on march 2017 with Finisterian Dead End / Season of Mist. Once again, we had the pleasure to work with Mr Nico Gazut at Cion ! We would like to thank him a lot for his work and for supporting us since many years.
“En raison d’un emploi du temps bien chargé, Thomas fait le choix de quitter le groupe. Nous lui souhaitons une excellente continuation et le remercions pour ces 8 ans de partage. WAR INSIDE recherche donc actuellement un nouveau chanteur, en vue de l’enregistrement d’un troisième album, et bien sûr de dates.
Quelqu’un de sérieux, disponible et impliqué, dans un registre autant Death que Black.

“The daylight is no more. In the shadows, the people of ‘Laniakea’ engage in new rites by drinking knowledge jealously guarded by the wise men of the tribe. The journey begins while the heat of the cave revives the interpretations of delusional paintings provoked by inexplicable powers. How to distinguish the real in the light of the flames, when everything loses its meaning and the mind takes over?” Driven by an imposing tribal polyrhythmic pattern, ‘Visions in the Cave’ is a reflection of Mantra’s massive second album: complex and immersive. The band enables the listener to witness the birth of God in the ethereal vapor of the hallucinatory substances consumed by the first men. The result is an epic piece of more than 7 minutes, with incredibly brilliant production, where technical mastery is combined with nuance to build a true musical journey.”Flesh and bones out of the soil
Scattering life around the world
I’m letting go where nothing dies
Into the Creator’s eye.”
New album “Laniakea” available worldwide since October 21rst thanx to Season of Mist / Finisterian Dead End Metal Label and Code 7 . Also availbale on all digital platforms and shipping worldwide on http://shop.finisteriandeadend.com
The story of Sargon, one of the earliest of the world’s great empire builders, is still fascinating today. He was an orphaned child that crossed the river inside a basket and saved by a humble man, a gardener, who grew him as his own child.
There, in the land of Noah and Abraham, where the three faiths of one god originated, he became the beloved leader and founder of the Akkadian Empire.
As every being he too came to an end, despite his virtues and luck. That very end that we all meet no matter how great our deeds have been.
Time is a beast that despises all things man creates. It consumes everything and what leaves behind we call it monuments to remind us of the eternal fight against it.
Time is ruthless. It dissolves empires and lets them ruins for others to see. Much like crucified beggars alongside Roman avenues we are reminded of our defeat.
Apparently, the moments we share my dear will be eaten up by the worms of Time…
