BAND PRAYING MANTIS
LABEL FRONTIERS MUSIC SRL
OUT 2018 - May 11th
OUR RATING 83/100
With GRAVITY PRAYING MANTIS return with a new great platter.
A fancy album, in the best tradition of the band, born in NWOBHM movement, but surely closer to melodic hard rock.
GRAVITY is the smart follow up of LEGACY, the previous job, once again through FRONTIERS MUSIC.
The feeling listening to this album is happyness, self-confidence and tasteful elegance.
This line up, enhanced by dutch "brothers" JOHN CUIJPERS and HANS IN'T ZANDT, works great and especially the first is the starring of songs as FOREIGN AFFAIR.
And TROY brothers are surely proud of this line up..you can see it in amazing and "pomp" celebratory song as MANTIS ANTHEM, one of the best shots of the platter with the sparkling hard rock opener KEEP IT LIVE.
This album is various, divided between hard rockin' moments and softer parts.
To remind GHOSTS OF THE PAST, so rich of pathos, a real gem.
A FANCY COMEBACK..NOTHIN' ELSE TO ADD!
