LORD MANTIS
PERVERTOR
CANDLELIGHT

Chicago quartet Lord Mantis serves up a bastardized amalgamation of smother-worthy sludge and chaotic black metal on their pummeling sophomore effort PERVERTOR. Armed with a chilling shrieking vocal, sludgy rhythmic rumblings aplenty and an endless supply of nasty riffs, this Windy City troupe doles out a despair-laden supply of songs whose calculated callousness (“Septichrist”) and genuine self-loathing atmosphere make an unsettling and crushing listening experience that adroitly merges the menacing wares of Satyricon, Unsane, and Black Tusk (“Vile Divinity”). -Mike SOS
