After years spent hidden away developing and evolving, Shadow Mantra is ready to stand tall in the vast ocean of music with the release of Light of the Diamond. The debut release delves into the ideas of time travel and World Lines. Inspired by the visual novel Steins;Gate. It explores what it would be like to repeatedly try and save someones life while battling with the subsequent emotional strains and psychological trials.

Shadow Mantra is the creation of Steve M, with the debut album, Light Of The Diamond, featuring guest drummer, Rowan Tremain, of At World's End.  Expect to hear an amalgamation of groove laden riffs, sorrowful melodies, and progressive sonic journeys.

  • I also got a #hoodie printed up with the #shadowmantra logo and #lightofthediamond #artwork printed up.

Not bad for a first attempt! Quite nice to see something that started as a #pencildrawing on a hoodie

  • Was lucky enough to see #tesseract twice on the same day at #download

For the second set they played through their ep #concealingfate and it was on a tiny little stage. I saw them doing something similar many years ago in a small community centre. Nice to see them doing well and growing.
