General Notes

A fan has asked me to point out there is a bootleg of this gig available with the two missing tracks from the set. i.e. Cheated I guess the all band encore. Anyway the sound was so bad on this bootleg he got a refund straight away. You have been Warned. And the sound on this disc is excellent as you would expect from a professionally recorded Live release.

Back to Discography


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 one was to celebrate the 20th anniversary of some of the best groups of NWOBHM.

    Praying Mantis

    It is a live record, japanese one, of course, who are the countries who has always supported this kind of music, and make them feel as the real rock stars they are ?

    Praying mantis offer a set list based in the timeless time tells no lies.
    Trespass set includes the 2 great songs: one of these days and stormchild. Though I liked very much Visionary Dreams.
    Tank and Samson are still a bit unknown to me, musically speaking, i need to heard them a bit more. But This Means War is included.

    8/10 indispensable for nwobmh fans
