A completely new song with catchy melodies!
-Zombies ahead
A pretty new song that we have been playing frequently during the fall of 2011.

No more livekarusell                                                                                              posted 2012-03-19


Livekarusellen is finished for Manthraah after disqualification as we only played 2 out of 3 gigs (since an ass-wipe who shall remained unnamed decided to leave the country for a couple of weeks). Anyway, we had lots of fun during these events and the audience and even the juries seemed very happy too.


Livekarusellen                                                                                                           posted 2012-01-10


Once again Manthraah will participate in the Swedish music contest 'Livekarusellen'. This usually means a bunch of unpaid trips to Växjö and a slap in the face from the jury. Fun and games!


Barncancergalan                                                                                                     posted 2011-12-15


The 22:nd of December Manthraah will play at this year's Barncancergala at the famous venue Skylten in Linköping, among acts like Sarea & Miss Behaviour. An event where all the profits are donated to Barncancerfonden. All visitors will be served free julegröt!
