Chicago's Lord Mantis are a royally nutty sounding sludge band...by the way, they've got a few awfully uptempo songs for sludge, and black metal vocals. But none of that matters since I've been able to sit thru the album several times and I dig it. I think these guys have completely lost their marbles, but I like it. Spawning The Nephilim is the perfect soundtrack for something fucked up and awful...some dark, violent, hellish journey into the unknown. It's really heavy and insane sounding, not an album to kick back and relax to, more like an album to have an axe fight to.
If you like Unearthly Trance, Lair Of The Minotaur, etc. I'd check Lord Mantis out immediately.
