Unconventional one-man black metal band Botanist features vocals, drums, and hammered dulcimer instrumentation. Their fourth full-length, IV: Mandragora, released via experimental metal label The Flenser, is a concept album on the alchemical creation of a mandrake, told from the perspective of The Botanist. A crazed man of science, he dwells in self-imposed exile, as far away as possible from humanity and its crimes against nature. The Botanist surrounds himself with plants and flowers, finding solace in the company of the Natural world and envisioning the destruction of mankind. In the Verdant Realm, his sanctuary of fantasy and wonder, The Botanist awaits the day when humans will either die or kill each other off, thereby allowing plants to make the Earth green once again. Botanist’s previous releases, I: The Suicide Tree, II: A Rose From the Dead (released July 2011 on tUMULt), and III: Doom in Bloom (TotalRust), have seen much critical acclaim, landing on NPR’s 25 Best Metal Albums of 2011, Metal Sucks’ Top 15 Metal Albums of 2011 and Metal Injection’s Top 10 Releases of 2011, and earning an honorable mention on Pitchfork’s Top 40 Albums of 2011. This next eccentric and remarkable chapter is sure to turn heads in 2013.
