QUIESCENT MANTIS - Share Lyric Video For New Single “Shake The Cage”

Quiescent Mantis, born from heavy metal sounds crossed with old school science fiction movies, brings a new, campy lyrical vibe to solid traditional groovy riffs. The furious trio of guitarist Chris Trainor, bassist/vocalist Jordan Mckenzie, and drummer Johnny Mejia came together to deliver one face-melting lick after another while the ground below them shatters with breakdowns. They have an album in the works, but for now, they are releasing the single “Shake The Cage” with a lyric video. It started as an instrumental, but has since developed lyrics, the band details the track:

“It was the first song we wrote for the album with its sole purpose to show our music ability and a way for all of us to showcase what this next chapter in the swarm and our album is going to be like. We were shooting for a song that will keep the audience moving when played live whether it means headbanging, moshing, singing, or all of the above. The song defines our sound and our music abilities as better than anything we have released so far.”

Quiescent Mantis released their debut EP “Chapter 1” last year, and while they find their niche has gone from a more traditional thrash sound to a truer heavy metal sound with paper shredding leads, earth-shaking bass lines along with almost machine-like drumming. They aim to provide a unique experience with a mixture of old school thrash and new school metal techniques such as breakdowns which will be prevalent on the next album.

“Shake The Cage” will catch people’s attention as it is very melodic and heavy on great grooves. Add in some absolute crazy breakdowns and you have a track with a little bit of everything for everyone. Fans of Killswitch Engage, Pantera, and Machine Head will be especially interested in what Quiescent Mantis has to offer.
