Lord Mantis Checks In From The Recording Studio

The deviant sect known to their cult fanbase as Lord Mantis is currently decimating the innards of hometown Chicago-based Electrical Audio and Soma Studios, harnessing madness for a third full-length release.

Lord Mantis is working in conjunction with Sanford Parker (Twilight, Voivod, Eyehategod, Samothrace), the engineer also responsible for recording the band's previous two albums.

While the newest composition has yet to bear a title, the third installment of the band's torrid lineage will be a first release for Profound Lore Records -- following thr 2009 Seventh Rule Recordings debut, "Spawning The Nephilim," and subsequent 2012 full-length, "Pervertor," released by Candlelight Records.

Having revamped the band's lineup since those previous releases, Lord Mantis has inducted Ken Sorceron into its ranks on guitar on this outing, the lineup also rounded out by the three founding members, bassist/vocalist Charlie Fell, guitarist/vocalist Andrew Markuszewski and drummer Bill Bumgardner. Additionally, Indian guitarist/vocalist Dylan O'Toole will contribute vocals on several of the tracks.

Stated Fell this week in a brief recess between the punishing sessions on these new works: "This record is more serious and dark than our other stuff. We have all been through a lot of really fucked-up shit in recent years, and that's all showing through in these sessions. We left behind anything slightly sci-fi, nightmarish or casually antagonistic, musically and visually; this time it's all brutally realistic and ultimately much, much darker."
