Praying Mantis Dome Tonight 9/3/19
Praying Mantis released their eleventh studio album ‘Gravity’ in May last year, and the guys are back in their hometown tonight playing London's Tufnell Park Dome. After the positive reception afforded to the band's last studio release ’Legacy' in 2015, their latest CD saw the band return with another inspired, take-no-prisoners set. The album also saw Mantis retain the same line-up, with John Cuijpers (vocals) and Hans in't Zandt (drums) again contributing to the songwriting process. Alongside founder members Tino Troy, Chris Troy and Andy Burgess, they not only helped in the writing of the songs, but also in providing a new dimension in terms of sound engineering and overall production. A well established band of Melodic Hard Rockers formed in 1973, they spearheaded the New Wave Of British Heavy Metal movement of the late ’70’s.
