I was a bit cranky last week, waiting for various things to happen with the website transition. God it's good to be back. Didn't Gary Glitter sing a song like that? dogrun

Praying Mantis - 1981 Time Tells No Lies
When one thinks about the early days of the NWOBHM, a couple of bands spring to mind. Iron Maiden, Saxon, Def Leppard, Diamondhead, and Praying Mantis. Yes, these London based boys formed around the Greek brothers Tino and Chris Troy were right there at the start.

Praying Mantis - 1993 Cry For The New World
Praying Mantis at this stage of their career had caught a second wind, and were riding on the huge wave of popularity coming out of Japan.

Praying Mantis - 2000 Nowhere To Hide
I'd suggest that with this effort 'Nowhere To Hide' that they've topped all before them. Kudos to Frontiers for getting these boys signed, as mostly we'd have to get their albums on hard to get Japanese releases.

Praying Mantis - 2003 The Journey Goes On
Their last album, 2000's 'Nowhere To Hide' was released to some acclaim, Mantis adapting their previous NWOBHM sound to a more melodic metal variety, an approach which takes precedent on 'The Journey Goes On'.

Praying Mantis - 2009 Sanctuary
Praying Mantis could be to 2009 what Uriah Heep were to 1982 with 'Abominog'! Tall praise indeed, but upon listening, you'll hear a magic mix of fine vocals, strapping boisterous guitars, with the occasional dash and dab of keyboards to fill up the vacuum.

Praying Mantis - 2015 Legacy
They've been around since the NWOBHM era, and that was some thirty five years ago. Praying Mantis themselves have been in camp much longer. 1973 was their origin year apparently, so that makes them well over forty years old. You wouldn think it listening to 'Legacy'. It sounds as fresh as a daisy.

The Essential Series - 2017 NWOBHM (Volume 1) by Gdazegod
This was the movement which effectively kickstarted the heavy metal industry as we know it today. Here is our first Volume looking at this part of the HM scene, out of Britain.
