Up Praying Mantis - British Steel III, Camden Underworld London 26th April 2008 Slideshow

The following is an extract of the total festival review by http://www.johntuckeronline.com/

The best reception of the night went to PRAYING MANTIS. Fronted by the ever- reliable, ever-smiling Troy brothers (guitarist Tino and bassist Chris), Praying Mantis kicked off with ‘Cry For The New World’ and then romped through a set of highlights – ‘Turn The Tables’, ‘Lovers To The Grave’, ‘Children Of The Earth’, ‘Rise Up’ and ‘Letting Go’. Notwithstanding the fact that there doesn’t seem to be such a thing as a duff Praying Mantis gig, the band (featuring Mike Freeland on vocals, Andy Burgess on guitars and Benjamin Reid on drums) seemed to be having a blast as well as being genuinely surprised at their reception. Saving the best till last, they wrapped things up with a subtly-reworked version of ‘Captured City’, one of the most exciting songs of the NWOBHM.
