|New Album “To Live To Kill To Live” Out August 28, 2020|
MANTICORA, the Danish prog-thrash veterans, have released the first single/video from their upcoming album “To Live To Kill To Live“, the follow-up and 2nd part of a huge concept, to 2018’s “To Kill To Live To Kill” – both albums, based on the 334-page horror/thriller novel that lead singer Lars F. Larsen wrote (also released in 2018).
The video for the song “Eaten By The Beasts” deals with the brutal murder of a young criminal, who has raped the daughter of a farmer. The farmer hires a hitman to get rid of the rapist, and the rapist is eaten alive by a number of huge, hungry pigs, owned by the farmer. It’s all karma, and the video is based on the concept. Watch it HERE.
