Candlelight Records today officially unleashes the second album from quartet Lord Mantis, bearing the title “Pervertor,” onto North American fans. The following press release was issued about the album currently streaming online:

“Even though their 2009-released debut album Spawning The Nephilim and the members’ involvement in a variety of other notable extreme metal acts has already built the band a ravenous cult fanbase, Pervertor sets a new bar for the Chicago-based henchmen as it rapes your soul with nearly 50 minutes of caustic, crushing, blackened anguish.

“To show their devotion to the scathing Lord Mantis tones, the underground correspondents over at Cvlt Nation have hosted a stream of Pervertor in its entirety. Have yourself disemboweled by the brutal tunes here.

“Lord Mantis will be taking to the road in the coming weeks in support of the album, and have confirmed a hometown record release massacre at the Cobra Lounge alongside Indian, Regrets and Hunters the first week of April.”

The latest CD from the Swedish band Katatonia is Night Is The New Day, which is getting great reviews and is destined to appear on many best of 2009 lists. I caught up with the band’s guitarist Anders Nyström, who is also in Bloodbath along with some of his Katatonia bandmates and members of Opeth. He gives the scoop on the new CD, the early days of Katatonia, the band’s upcoming tour plans, and if his former band Diabolical Masquerade will get back together.

Chad Bowar: How has the band’s sound progressed/evolved from The Great Cold Distance to Night Is The New Day?

Anders Nyström: Well, we definitely aimed to tear down a few walls on what people or even ourselves thought couldn’t be done. Musically, I still think the direction takes off from where we left with The Great Cold Distance, but emphasizes on a lot more depth and atmosphere as cornerstones. The sound picture is therefore bigger, and there’s a lot more stuff going on in the background. The album feels more dynamic and ranges from brutally heavy to swirling soft, not only between parts in one and the same song, but also from song to song.

It feels like a more progressive album as we’re definitely not stranded at the same spot. We have a couple of songs that are a bit different like “Idle Blood” that takes on a more ’70s approach with acoustic guitars, Fender Rhodes and mellotrone etc., and we have “Nephilim” which can be seen as a heavy doom metal tune. There’s a few songs that reach fully into the electronic sound picture of our “Unfurl” sound that people came to love, and there’s last but not least a few tracks that are heavier than ever bearing the Katatonia trademark. This album holds a lot of more variation, but within the walls of what is to be considered Katatonia, of course.
