Candlelight Records today officially unleashes the second album from quartet LORD MANTIS, bearing the title Pervertor, onto North American fans. Even though their 2009-released debut album Spawning The Nephilim and the members’ involvement in a variety of other notable extreme metal acts has already built the band a ravenous cult fanbase, Pervertor sets a new bar for the Chicago-based henchmen as it rapes your soul with nearly 50 minutes of caustic, crushing, blackened anguish.
To show their devotion to the scathing LORD MANTIS tones, the underground correspondents over at Cvlt Nation have hosted a stream of Pervertor in its entirety. Have yourself disemboweled by the brutal tunes HERE.
LORD MANTIS will be taking to the road in the coming weeks in support of the album, and have confirmed a hometown record release massacre at the Cobra Lounge alongside Indian, Regrets and Hunters the first week of April.

The dirty deeds within the LORD MANTIS ranks are carried out by bassist/vocalist Charlie Fell (Nachtmystium, Von, Von Venien), drummer Bill Bumgardner (Indian), and guitarists Andrew Markuszewski (Avichi, Nachtmystium, Von, Von Venien) and Greg Gomer. Their sophomore LP Pervertorwas harvested by Sanford Parker (Nachtmystium, Pelican, Indian), liberating the organic filth of the hymns with maximum destroying power. The cover art was commissioned to Justin Bartlett (Watain, Sunn O))), Trap Them).
