Frantic Mantis








Hometown: Gothenburg (Sweden)

About:

Frantic Mantis – born out of an impromptu jam session in Summer 2003 of long time friends in Göteborg, Sweden. Bridging the mutual musical admiration of Håkan Johansson and Per Stålberg of Divison Of Laura Lee and Shelby Cinca of Frodus/Decahedron. Merging the styles of said bands impeccably to create a modern day fusion of punk and ambient rock known hereforth as: Datapunk. Screamy vocals, sung vocals, spastic guitars, 8bit explosions, and no over processing done by the collective brains of the members. Spontaneous and dangerous... two words that even modern day punk music has forgotten.

This album was recorded in numerous locations from the acclaimed studio of Sweden??s Soundtrack Of Our Lives, Svenska Grammofon Studion, to the legendary Dischord House where independent punk music in America had it??s humble beginnings. Utilizing the advent of digital recording to bridge geographical divides and create ultimate sonic mayhem.
