Kimi Kärki is not a person very well known in metal industry, maybe because his bands are underground and very few people know about them. Even those who know the bands he is in, don’t really know how great he is. For those who don’t know anything about Kimi Kärki, let me tell you about him. He started as a guitarist for progressive rock band Orne and later joined the doom metal band Lord Vicar.
Music according to me has to evolve. For a musician to get the best out of his talents, he/she should feel free to step out of their comfort zones once in a while. In all the years that metal has existed, repetition has become something very common and to be honest, it is quite annoying to see bands creating the same type of music over and over again. This brings me to the two man band from Hamburg, Germany, which goes by the name of Mantar. This is a band that manages to showcase their potential through their debut album. But there is something about this album, that doesn’t quite feel right.
