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.

    This was the first Mantis I heard, aged 13, and bought for 30p after finding it in a Bristol record shop bargain bin in October 1981.

    Ray Davies wrote a great song, Praying Mantis made it sound like an anthem. It scorches from start to finish. If Mantis had made it big, imagine what this would have sounded like in Madison Square Gardens. Beads of Ebony showed a softer side – I never knew it was about
    a seal, thinking instead it was about a discarded lover (that’s living in sheep country for you!). I wrote for the fan club letter the next day, but it never arrived… Yet 22 years later, I can’t get rid of the record.
