    Review of Metalmorphosis the album

    Fantastic album! Thats a good start to this little review. Yes, its been a couple of years since the last album Sanctuary and I eagerly await the next one. Having been a huuuuuuuge fan of Mantis since the 80’s I know these songs inside out and to be honest it is difficult to adapt to new versions of the songs I love. However, it seems to have worked for me.

    I love this incarnation of the band and they have been together for some years with the only change being Benjy’s dad taking over from Benjy on the sticks. The band are solid and all complement each other as can be heard on these ‘new’ songs.

    There are all the elements of old in the songs, but with a modern feel and a different take on them, perhaps a little slower than the original versions, but still exuding the same high standards of musicianship and songwriting talents of what are now 20 or more years old.

    Personal highlights for me would have to be Time Slipping Away, which sounds better than ever and I can’t wait to hear it being played next week in the warmup shows, Running For Tomorrow, Flirting With Suicide sound almost like brand new songs, Can’t See The Angels sounds great and ok, Borderline too, it wasn’t my all time favourite song, but it sounds better now than it did then, not that it was badly done before, it just sounds better?

    I think what I’m trying to say is that I love the original songs and I also love the new versions, its like having two different versions of the same song???!!!??? And I have to say that Mike’s voice has a touch of Bruce Dickinson about it when he hits those high notes, that is meant as a compliment and it’s great to hear the background vocals of the Troy brothers bringing harmony into the mix to give that wonderful Mantis sound along with the rhythm and percussion, altogether a very tight band of musicians and always a pleasure to listen to.

    Over all the years I have seen them and played their music to people who’ve never heard them, they always find it enjoyable to listen to this band, ALWAYS!!! That says something about Praying Mantis, you either love them or…..you love them.

    BUY THIS ALBUM NOW!!! It’s well worth it.
