The Flenser to release new album from Botanist

Botanist is one of the more bizarre black metal entities to emerge in recent years. For the uninitiated, it’s one man, a drum kit and his hammered dulcimer, that’s about it. It’s head scratching and in the best way. Meanwhile, one the US’s most forward thinking metal labels, with a particular emphasis on black metal, The Flenser, is getting on board and will release Botanist’s new album IV: Mandragora on February 19th.

According to the label press release: “Combining lyrical creativity and musical ingenuity, IV: Mandragora is a concept record on the alchemical creation of a mandrake, and how The Botanist is instructed on raising an army of mandrakes to wipe out humanity.” Read the full statement HERE and check out the album artwork below.
