A really good one! Basically it goes into the typical Melodic-Speed-direction like thousands of other acts, too, but still they differ through good ideas, well-placed breaks and quite original lead-vocals!
The vox are not so polished and smooth, like we got used to from the Italian fraction, I'd even call them quite characteristic. In the beginning I didn't really dig 'em, but the more often I listen to the CD, the better I like them.
MANTICORA are Danish and are not only fast, but also have a faible for epic pieces. All songs are excellently played, very well produced and don't have those happy melodies! This album really convinced me and therefore an interview has to follow! Soon playing in this theatre...
