MANTICORE “Behold The Ascension Of The Execrated”

“Behold The Ascension Of The Execrated”
I know not to judge a book by its cover or a band by its name but when I saw the name Manticore I got vibes of a thrash metal band in the vein of the second wave. Bands that followed in the wake of Metallica; Slayer, anthrax and Megadeth. Don’t know how right I am but I’ll hope for the best. Truth be told I was as far off as I could have been. Although there is a slight thrash vibe to this I would say that this is more in line with bands like Brazil’s Sarcofago or Canada’s Blasphemy than any second wave of thrash that you could think up. This is primitive and very basic in sound. I’m a fan of this kind of primal metal. When I’m in the mood this is a cleansing as anything else. But I gotta crave it to fully appreciate it. Manticore calmed that craving for the time being. Anders Ekdahl
