A great lost treasure rediscovered
Robert L. Witek | Monmouth Beach , New Jersey | 06/02/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I remember the New Wave of British Heavy Metal the first time around. I used to visit my local record store/head shop and the owner was this denim and leather clad rocker. I got turned on to all these obscure British bands, Maiden, Saxon, Samson, etc. However, probably the most melodic of the bunch was Praying Mantis. This is simply a GREAT album. The Troy brothers write really tuneful songs, with great harmonies and stellar guitar playing. The production is really nice as well. It's too bad this band never caught on in the States, but if you like music that sounds like Thin Lizzy, early Def Leppard, and maybe even a bit like early Bon Jovi, you'll definately dig Mantis. Key cuts, "Stay Alive in the City" "Lovers to the Grave" and a neat cover of the Kinks "All Day and All of the Night""
NWOBHM classic !

"Praying Mantis is a little-known NWOBHM band, that is still around today. This one's their first album and it's a true classic. Three lead vocalists, brilliant harmonies, typical twin guitar sound, nice lyrics. This is a must-have for all melodic rock fans. Check out their latest albums as well. You're guaranteed not to be disappointed!"
Classic cd for the fan or collector

"I checked this out on youtube before buying, and the tunes are great, but at the steep price I paid I have not opened it yet. I may have to find a used one for less to put on my mp3 player. Shame these guys never made it big. The documentary dvd 'Iron Maiden and the NWOBHM' interviews them and it boiled down to Foreigner's manager approaching them to manage them-at a time when Foreigner was huge-and they declined in favor of their own managers who were thier mom and brother in law--or some such thing. Missed the boat, they did. Great music here. Must have for nwobhm fans! Skip naything by Tygers of Pan Tang, by the way."
