After three studio albums, a live record and an EP in just five years, it
was time to keep the band happy.
The past few years have flown by: MANTAR has been busy making
records and touring, more or less all around the world and the absurd
idea of being a "professional band" has surprisingly become real. An
incredible journey, more than you could have expected after the debut
"Death By Burning" 2014. Nevertheless, after five years in which the
band surprisingly became a "job", you had to ask yourself how you
could continue to entertain yourself in the future. Treat yourself with
good clean fun, without expectations and without fixed goals.
The idea of a cover album came just in time. However, it was also clear
from the start that no one would need any other loveless covers from
Slayer, Sabbath or Black Flag. At least MANTAR didn't need them. The
songs were recorded in Hanno's living room in Gainesville, Florida,
except for the drums, which where record in a studio in Hamburg to be
safe. It was then mixed in the "Black Bear Studio", on eof the
cornerstones of the Florida punk scene. MANTAR has always been as
DIY as possible when producing their records, but with the cover songs
the band wanted to go further in terms of home recording. Even back
then, the term "grunge" was as silly as the words "punk" or "heavy
metal", so the similar shitty title of the record was quickly found.
Being super pros, the first version was deleted by mistake, so the thing
now is called "Grungetown Hooligans II". It also sounds a lot "better".
