Praying Mantis | ‘Turn The Tide’

“Turn The Tide” is the new music video from NWOBHM (New Wave Of British Heavy Metal) legends PRAYING MANTIS. The song comes off the band’s new studio album, “Sanctuary”, which is scheduled for release in Europe on June 5 via Frontiers Records (July 14 in the U.S.). The CD was recorded in Atlanta, Georgia under the direction of producer/engineer Andy Reilly (ASIA, THE CULT, BRUCE DICKINSON, FM, etc). “Hard to believe but MANTIS have been in existence for over thirty years,” says bassist Chris Troy. “Quite incredible, really, that we are still there releasing albums and maturing nicely. This also coincides with the 30th anniversary since the inception of NWOBHM (New Wave Of British Heavy Metal). IRON MAIDEN have obviously made it and just as importantly have managed to stay up there for this long time. Well done, lads! By the way, the album title ‘Sanctuary’ has no relationship to them!! However, we do share some history and maybe this album will put us up there with them.”
