Angry Metal Guy

Get past the goofiness of those Al Pacino moments, and what we’re left with is one of the strongest hard rock albums of the year. Mana bursts with energy and charisma, from the catchy anthems to the brooding, depressive numbers.


An amazing blend of cheesy 80’s heavy metal and post-punk/goth rock.


Super cheesy (especially the song about Dragons) but I can't get enough. Excellent vocals, highly enjoyable.

Fav track: Jackie

Least Fav.: That one song about dragons, I can't help but cringe...but I don't change the song either.


I am surprised that this album was released in 2019. It feels like it was made in the 90's. Also, as someone who loves gothic metal, it was impossible not to enjoy this album.
