In 2009 we saw the band release Sanctuary and the reviews and feedback were fantastic.

If you like the NWOBHM this EP is a must have. If you would like to know where some new bands got some influences from, Praying Mantis is one of those bands. Discover them or discover them again. You will have a great time with it.
