LORD MANTIS - Death Mask

Death Mask is the new album by the Chicago, Illinois based four piece Noise Metal band, LORD MANTIS.

Dark, deep, and gritty; Death Mask is a superb amalgamation of black, sludge, doom, and death among other genres of metal. LORD MANTIS drags the listener through their inner-most turmoils, grinding them abrasively into a catharsis with the cold earthen ground. Death Mask provides an interestingly progressive composition that continues turning over while adding or adjusting parts from section to section by using non-conventional or experimental song structures. LORD MANTIS has both primal and advanced technological elements present on this album, which allows for substantial depth throughout the entire work.
