MANTICORA To Issue "Hyperion" In October

April 28, 2002

Danish power metal merchants MANTICORA have completed work on their third full-length album, entitled Hyperion, at Aabenraa studios with producer Jacob Hansen (i.e. RAUNCHY, INVOCATOR, ANCIENT, ILLDISPOSED, WUTHERING HEIGHTS),for an October release through Italy's Scarlet Records. Mixed at Jailhouse studios by Tommy Hansen (i.e. HELLOWEEN, PRETTY MAIDS, BEYOND TWILIGHT),the forthcoming CD is a concept album, meant as a tribute to well-known author Dan Simmons' amazing Hyperion saga. However, due to copyright issues, MANTICORA have chosen to alter certain names of persons and places in the story. According to an official press release from Scarlet, “Hyperion is a heart-pounding science-fiction novel with emphasis on emotions such as love, rage, loss, fear and pain, and MANTICORA have succeeded in capturing each and one of those emotions on the album. For all fans of science fiction and fantasy, this conceptual piece will be welcomed wholeheartedly.”
