Lord Mantis is a band not for the weak of heart.
The Chicago act contains a unique sound merging doom metal with ambiance and is clearly influenced by horror soundtracks. The lyrical themes are often focusing on the occult.
Call it “terror doom” if you will.
Lord Mantis has three blood curdling albums available for your listening pleasure entitled “Spawning the Nephilim,” “Pervertor,” and their most recent release “Death Mask” which has spawned a video (above) for the song “Possession Prayer.” Each album contains its own chilling artwork.
If there’s anything that can be said it’s safe to say that Lord Mantis’ material is for mature audiences only.
