So a while back there was a competition to create a Metal cover of strange old songs. However the contest got shut down. But the video remains!
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.
