Very good live release by those British with an interesting lineup and a collection of songs of PRAYING MANTIS, IRON MAIDEN & LIONHEART ! It features Paul Di'Anno & Dennis Stratton, and half of it is old Maiden tunes. They sound like they’re having a lot of fun, and the performance is dead-on with lots of energy. It sounds as though someone is singing out of tune at times, but that dissonance adds character.

This is a double CD of unreleased songs that the Troy brothers had. It also includes demos of not only Praying Mantis but also Escape (Stratus). A band the Troys started with ex-Iron Maiden drummer Clive Burr and ex-Grand Prix vocalist Bernie Shaw. You can't expect much of the sound production as these are demos. This album will be a treasure for Praying Mantis fans.

Entitled “Sanctuary” the CD is again very personal with plenty of great melodies and songs. The mix of lead and harmony guitar breaks and solos with great vocals and keyboards is fantastic with an overall songwriting on the highest levels all over. What we have here is a band that contains some very fine and experienced musicians who have put together a collection of songs that create a really classic album. Praying Mantis will forever be associated with the NWoBHM, but are in fact far more melodic.

Released in 2003, The Journey Goes On is the band's seventh studio album for metal act featuring dual vocalists, Dougie White (Rainbow/Malmsteen) & John Sloman (Lone Star/Gary Moore), the followup to 2000's 'Nowhere To Hide'. Includes guitarist Dennis Stratton (Iron Maiden) & founding members Chris & Tino Troy. The Journey Goes On is a first rate melodic rock album, and should especially appeal to fans of Demon, Ten, Cornerstone, Magnum, and John Payne-era Asia. If you're expecting a NWOBHM revival album though, you're going to be disappointed.

Praying Mantis appeared with the rise of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal in the early 80s and rubbed shoulders with the likes of Iron Maiden and Def Leppard. "Nowhere To Hide" - the mix of lead and harmony guitar breaks and solos with great vocals and keyboards is fantastic. You could view this as a heavy AOR album or as a light melodic metal album.

Fans of Praying Mantis must have approached this disc with trepidation, Yet another change in vocalists was probably the last thing they wanted. This is a stunning album. It appeared on many "best of year" lists in 1998. It is astounding to look back over eighteen years of the band's history to this disc which, at the time of its release, is the best album the band has released. This disc features the very best of everything the band had shown through the years. The songs are very well written. The vocals are immense and the choruses are enormous.
