MANDRAKE "Forever" /CD/



Debut full-length album by German Melodic Gothic Metal band.
Lutz de Putter founded Mandrake in 1996. The band recorded their first demo “Mandragora Officialis” in 1997. Debut album “Forever” was recorded at Soundlodge Productions in 1998, and shows the harder side of Mandrake more focused on male vocals and growls. Album was produced with the help of some guest musicians. As a self-produced effort, the overall emphasis reaches for a clear and concise tone, which gives the impression of a professionally mixed recording of Doom-laddened riffs accented by keyboards and occasional violin melodies. Influences pertaining to their compositions seem to point towards My Dying Bride, Paradise Lost and Theatre Of Tragedy, with male growling providing most of the vocals while feathery female vocals are interspersed within a number of tracks and are featured almost exclusively on two of them.
All in all this is the great Melodic Gothic/Doom Metal album and it’s musthave for your collection!!
