Time tells no lies (CD)
FORMED BY brothers Tino and Chris Troy, Praying Mantis developed a reputation for delivering thinking man's metal. Indeed, they had the musical chops to rival and, at times, outshine the competition by utilising twin lead guitar, ambitious arrangements and multilayered harmonies; their songs were melodic yet intricately arranged and packed a powerful punch. In addition, like most acts from the NWOBHM school of hard knocks, they put in the necessary road-work taking their message to the metal masses. 'Time Tells No Lies', produced by Time Friese Green (Touch), engineered by Mike Shipley (Def Leppard) and housed in a stunning Rodney Matthews designed sleeve, was originally issued in 1980, and attracted highbrow praise positioning them as a band to definitely watch out for. Sure, in the end they didn't quite reach the peak of popularity attained by Maiden or Leppard, but their presence on the scene was not without significance and 'Time Tells No Lies' remains a gleaming testament to their talent. 24-bit remastering from original source tapes, five bonus tracks, 3,500 word essay about the making of the album, band involvement and additional photos spread out over a 16 page full colour booklet.
