There’s definitely something wrong with Lord Mantis. And I mean that in the best way possible, because the sounds they conjure on ‘Body Choke‘, taken from their upcoming new album Death Mask, are, to put it lightly, unearthly. It’s a nauseous cesspool of sludge, doom and black metal — culminating in an atmosphere so bleak and oppressive that there’s a good chance it may even collapse on itself.
The track comes courtesy of Noisey and sits alongside an interview with vocalist/bassist Charlie Fell that seems to have pushed the buttons of a few people.
Regardless, Death Mask will be available from the 29th of April through Profound Lore Records.
