They could be in the top of the world. They became nothing in no time… The band never really managed to cope with the fail of “Time Tells…”, a fantastic melodic hard rock stunner.
Good albums and many great songs followed, but Mantis’ history remains a bitter reminiscent of the arrogance of music industries and their exploitation upon the bands.
Unfortunately, time said the biggest lie.
