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.

    Very basic metal tracks from up ‘n’ coming (at the time)
    heavy metal stormtroopers, although definitely one for the collection (you know, to show the grandkids).
    I’m well pieased I bought it when I did (1980).

    Most of the bands on the album are now legendary so it was the best thing (I think, anyway) that could have happened to them!!!
    I,d love to see an updated re-issue!!!

    My thanx to all who graced the album!!!
