9/10 Dave 14 October 2010

Mind melting weirdness prevails as this Icelandic two piece and guests pummel you into submission with a hefty slice of goth tinged garage rock. Its a rumbling, relentless attack on the senses. It has spiritual chants and ancient battle cries and it flexes its goth love muscle. Dead Mantra gets carried along by a straight up 4/4 beat and a hefty stench of incense. It's like a dark sea, undulating and writhing while at the same time making your packed lunch ever so wet. This is no sub standard songwriting fair. There are no bridges or sing along choruses. There are no sweet blazing lead guitar motifs. It's a psychedelic sex beast who insists on taking you roughly from behind on your first date. If these guys are sitting on a spiritual rocket ship destined for the heart of the blackest sun and you miss the flight you might be very upset. Paint your face white and shuffle from side to side, this record pours a goblet of blood over your mind tubes...
