Mantis Songs covered by other bands

Possibly none. It depends if you view the Stratton/Hart Predator in Disguise
tracks as Mantis originals. If you do

"Listen to what your Heart says" from Predator in Disguise is remade on the
Original Iron Men (ASBCD 004) album by Paul Dianno and Dennis Stratton. It also
appears on True Brits volume 3 (ASBCD 005) but it is only credited to Hart and
Thomas instead of Stratton Thomas White and Hart.


I have been a Praying Mantis fan since I first heard "Captured City" on Metal for Muthas. Time Tells No Lies has always been on of my favourite albums and I was overjoyed when I first discovered it was out on CD. I didn't know what had happened after the first album until in about 1994 I discovered "A Cry For The New World". I was worried about getting it as I thought it had to be a disappointment but I was wrong. I loved it and have followed the band and maintained this website ever since.
