5.0 out of 5 stars It is Mantis Magic! AOR meets Heavy Rock. 1 Mar 2012
By Simon Loxham VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This review is for the 2012 re-master on Rock Candy.

In 1980 I saw Mantis support Triumph and I was immediately hooked with their unique blend of melody and metal, with unusual time changes and fluid guitar solos from the gifted Tino Troy. After following their career for roughly 30 years this album is one of a few records (!) which manages to occupy a legendary status in my collection, a classic sleeve and a great rock album. The album has been available on CD in Japan and on the High Voltage label from Australia I think. It would sit nicely next to your classic Magnum album "On a storytellers night" and I rate it highly in terms of the AOR elements in the music.

There are five tracks in particular which have always been my favourites, namely Cheated,Running for Tomorrow, Lovers to the Grave, Beads of Ebony and Children of the Earth.The classic B-side Thirty Pieces Of Silver should have been on the original album, that's brilliant too. I remember begging the DJ at Wigan Pier to play Beads of Ebony which was the B-side of All day and all of the night the Kinks cover.This track has an interesting lyric about the culling of seals. The awesome Children of the Earth starts with a guitar solo and finishes with another beauty and typical Mantis ending (think Rush endings!).

Mantis have never bettered this album with the vocal melodies never matching those here and they should be proud of these songs. The re-master is beefy and the booklet is full of the history of the band etc, this version adds the single "Praying Mantis" and B-side "High Roller" which to my knowledge have been unavailable on CD before.Melodic magic buy now!

3.0 out of 5 stars A piece of NWOBHM history. 10 Sep 2006
Format:Audio CD
This is Mantis debut album, along with a host of other bands Mantis rode in on the NWOBHM scene in the late 70`s. They along with many others, Samson, White Spirit, Budgie, Tygers Of Pan Tang etc had there one shot at fame & this is there attempt. There uptempo numbers actually sound pretty good & the band had a distinctive sound when going for it. The opening track "Cheated" is a great example of this. The band used twin leads to help give them a broader guitar sound & they don`t sound like Thin Lizzy which i think is highly commendable. This album has quite a mixed bunch in terms of the songs. There`s a commendable but worthless version of "All Day & All Of The Night" By the Kinks this was obviously a decision made by the record company. Personnaly i would have prefered another original song but hey at least its a good attempt. "Running For Tomorrow" is pleasant enough if a little dull at least to my ears. Next up is "Rich City Kids" an uptempo tune with a reasonable riff & a nice little Chorus. Then we get "Lovers To The Grave" a soft rock slowy type number reminded me of Wishbone Ash in parts but a great tune with a great chorus you`ll walk away singing for days. "Panic In The Streets" is next & this is were i think Praying Mantis really live & breath its an uptempo rocker, Great tune with a great chorus & nicely played to. "Beads Of Ebony" is next full of nice harmony backing vocals but very hit & miss. Then we get the killer track of the album. When someone writes the definitive top ten list of the ten best NWOBHM songs then "Flirting With Suicide" is definatley going to be in it. For my money this albums worth buying for this one song alone. An uptempo bouncy rocker laden with great riffs & a great arrangement, coupled with a killer chorus. Read more ›

3.0 out of 5 stars All Pray to the Mantis 17 May 2009
Format:Audio CD
I have followed Praying Mantis since I saw them nearly 30 years ago and for fans of big dramatic songs these are the boys. Some of these songs take a while to get into, but they will all grow on you. A fine effort, these guys should have been huge.
