Mantus : Fatum - Best of 2000-2012 - 2xCD  Ref: 20980 The first best-of album since 2006's "Chronik" - already emphasizing its meaning with the title: For Martin Schnidler, MANTUS is more than a band. It is his fate, his "Fatum". On two jam-packed CDs, the architect of tears casts a glance backwards upon the years 2000 to 2012, upon twelve long years of Gothic history. Somewhat programmatic, the best-of commences with "Untergang", the opening hymn of "Requiem" to whose tunes the scene danced as one in 2009. What follows are 29 tracks - from the melancholy Todeskunst beginnings ("Gemein-sam in den Tod") via irreplaceable Gothic classics like "Kleiner Engel flügellos" up to more current, guitar driven Gothic Rock anthems, every single MANTUS era gets the respect it deserves. Needless to say that this can't be enough.

Alternative and previously unreleased versions, carefully updated remakes of the early Gothic monuments "Kleiner Engel flügellos", "Wie ein Engel" or "Gemeinsam in den Tod" as well as the brand-new, biting and intense song "Trauma" add to this melancholic stroll through the past. Only in its all-embracing splendour, "Fatum" proves how much German Gothic actually owes this project. MANTUS are among the last remaining poets of the true Gothic culture - and "Fatum" is their timeless legacy.
