New release from: MENTALIST – A Journey Into the Unknown (August 20, 2021)

MENTALIST is a Melodic Metal band from Saarbrücken, Germany that was founded in 2018. The group consists of Peter Moog (guitars), Thomen Stauch (drums, ex-BLIND GUARDIAN), Kai Stringer (guitars, ex-STARCHILD) and Swedish singer extraordinaire Rob Lundgren on vocals.

After the highly successful debut release Freedom Of Speech in 2020, the group now returns with its sophomore release A Journey Into The Unknown. Just like the predecessor, this new opus puts a strong focus onto huge guitar melodies and vocals lines amongst others. MENTALIST’s influences from the genre’s greats such as Iron Maiden, Helloween and Blind Guardian still shine through – but they formed their own identity.

Oliver Palotai (Kamelot; keyboards on all tracks) and Mike LePond (Symphony X, bass on all tracks) together with singer Henning Basse (Metalium, Firewind; backing vocals on most tracks, plus a duet on “Live Forever“) all appear as guests on this record.

A Journey Into The Unknown again also showcases an incredible artwork designed by Andreas Marschall (Blind Guardian, Running Wild) – starring the band’s mascot, the Mentalist. The Mentalist continues his journey as a recurring element in the group’s artwork and during their live shows with visual effects.

Mix & mastering this time was handled by Jacob Hansen (Volbeat, Amaranthe, Pretty Maids etc.).
