Staff review by
Mandrake comes from Germany and like a lot of bands nowadays, they play a kind of Gothic/Power Metal with a female singer in opposition of a male singer who sings with some Death Metal vocals. I'm sure that some of you are already saying, "hoo no Jesus, one more of this band", and I understand you, but luckily Mandrake have something more in its music, and it will certainly save their destiny in our cruel Metal world.
