Editorial Reviews

The sounds of the last regular studio album from MANTUS have barely died away yet Martin Schindler now releases an ambitious project which could cause quite a stir for some. Die Hochzeit von Himmel und H?????? is an ambitious collage of typical catchy MANTUS songs, instrumental pieces and elements in the style of a play, all based on William Blakes book The Marriage of Heaven and Hell. Blakes painting The Great Red Dragon should be known to many from the similarly-named Hannibal Lecter film and from the book by Thomas Harris. Blakes paintings and poems, full of powerfully eloquent poetry, dark strength and fascinating reflections on the world have lost none of their relevance and appeal even up to the present day. By using the framework of Blakes poetry, MANTUS succeed in creating an album which, predominantly through the spoken lyrics, stands out clearly from MANTUS own works and yet offers the same inspirational elements that their fans are fond of. Powerful song structures, the mixture of hard guitars and driving percussion, the extravagant classical arrangements and the subtle use of acoustic instruments such as guitars and harpsichord mixed with electronic set pieces. The combination of catchy hooklines, imaginative soundtrack structures and the expressive choral speaking of Thalia and Martin Schindler, based on Blakes texts, creates a total work of art which easily masters the balancing act between high quality musical art and catchy gothic music. With Die Hochzeit von Himmel und H??????, MANTUS have succeeded in pulling off a brilliantlyexecuted piece of dark, catchy musical art and sophisticated lyricism.
