Praying Mantis have announced the release of their 12th studio album, “Katharsis”. The album sees the long-running British rock band steadily progressing from the sonic signatures of their last release, “Gravity”.
"Katharsis” features the same line-up that has been featured on the previous two albums, with vocalist Jaycee Cuijpers and drummer Hans in’t Zandt cementing themselves as part of the band‘s ongoing legacy. The two have truly provided a new dimension to the writing process and musical performances delivered by the band. Together with founding members Tino and Chris Troy and guitarist Andy Burgess, who has been with the band since 2008, they have been instrumental not only in the writing of the new songs, but in providing a new vision in terms of sound engineering and production.
To hear and see the band now, fans will experience both the spirit and energy of the early ‘80s together with a technical style that brings the band into the modern era.
Rainer Kalwitz, one of the most well know album cover artists in rock ‘n roll, was commissioned to do the artwork for the album in the same style and stunning quality that so many fans loved on the original Mantis albums like “Time Tells No Lies,” “Predator In Disguise," and “Legacy.”
Praying Mantis are now a well-established band of melodic hard rockers. Formed by brothers Tino and Chris Troy in 1973, together with bands like Iron Maiden, Def Leppard, Saxon, and others they spearheaded the NWOBHM (New Wave Of British Heavy Metal) movement. While they did not see the same dizzying heights of success as some of their contemporaries, Praying Mantis nonetheless became one of THE most influential bands of the NWOBHM. The band has remained active over the years and still records and plays live regularly, while evolving their style from their early beginnings to a more melodic hard rock style.
