MANTICORA: Romanian Concert Footage Available

Video footage of MANTICORA's July 8, 2007 performance at the Romanian festival The Fest Of Oradea has been posted at

MANTICORA released their sixth full-length album, "The Black Circus Part 2 - Disclosure", in the U.S. on June 26 via Locomotive. The companion CD to last year's "The Black Circus, Part 1 – Letters" was mixed at the Jailhouse studios in Horsens, Denmark between January 25, 2007 and February 1 with producer Tommy Hansen (HELLOWEEN, TNT, PRETTY MAIDS, FATE).

According to a posting on MANTICORA's web site, the following guest musicians appear on the CD:

* Jacob Hansen (INVOCATOR, ANUBIS GATE) on vocals
* Teddy Möller (LOCH VOSTOK, WUTHERING HEIGHTS) on growls
* Finn Zierler (BEYOND TWILIGHT) doing a keyboard solo
* Andreas Lindahl (WUTHERING HEIGHTS, ex-PLATITUDE) doing some keyboard leads and solos

As previously reported, MANTICORA recently recorded a cover of TANKARD's "Total Addiction" ("a real thrash metal classic!!!" according to the band) for a TANKARD tribute album, to be released in August by AFM Records.

The two-album "The Black Circus" concept project tells the story of the horrific perils of a traveling circus in the 19th century.
