EXCLUSIVE: STREAM MANTRIC’S THE DESCENT IN ITS ENTIRETY!
It’s funny how things work out sometimes; no sooner did I publish a post at noon proclaiming my desire to hear the entire new Mantric record (out today!) than I got an email from the band saying “Hey, here’s the record. Wanna stream it?” But of course we do.
So while this is most likely your first time listening to Mantric’s The Descent, it’s mine too; and so far I really, really like what I’m hearing. Turns out the record is a whole lot more diverse than the “Neurisis meets Opeth via Converge production” description I gave it earlier based on the tracks posted on MySpace; this record is really all over the metal map, and in a great way. Mantric inflict their progressive take on everything and the results are amazing. The band I’d actually liken them to most is The Ocean, if not quite in sound then definitely in concept.
Listen to The Descent and let us know what you think. If you like it, considering ordering a copy for just $10 or with a t-shirt for $20.
