CD PROMO IN CARTON SLEEVE NEW AND SEALED WITH SIAE STAMP

Formed in 1997 by singer and front-woman Morgan Lacroix. In 1999, Lacroix recorded a demo album, with four songs.

In 2000, Lacroix was introduced to singer, guitarist and composer Terry Horn. The result of this artistic union was the debut album Fairy Tales from Hell’s Caves, distributed in 2001 by German independent label Nuclear Blast/Capiranha records. A German critic delivered two positive reviews, calling the style melodic “gothic rock” in Sonic Seducer[1] and “gothic metal” in Metal Hammer,[2] respectively. According to the band, “Fairy Tales is definitely a concept album: a trip throughout the Dantean Hell, tormented by passion, anguish and insanity, where the character of Virgil is surprisingly replaced by an unusual bewitching vampire fairy.”[3]

In 2002, Mandragora Scream released their second album A Whisper of Dew, distributed by Nuclear Blast. Once again a concept album, centred on a vampire story specifically written for the band by Julio Angel Olivares Merino, horror-gothic literature writer and teacher of English Philosophy at the Spanish University of Jaén. Drawing inspiration from this tale, Lacroix composed the entire album lyrics.[4]

Madhouse and Volturna

“Madhouse” is the third album, published in the year 2006, by Lunatic Asylum Records.

In January 2007 they published a new CD/DVD called Dragonfly, which includes 2 videos from the album Madhouse (“Dark Lantern”, “Blight Thrills”) and 2 remasterized tracks plus 1 new song (”Dark Lantern Remix”, “Spiritual Leadin”, “Lunatic Asylum”) and in March 2007 a single track called “Jeanne D’Arc” by Lunatic Asylum Records. But They released it DVD on April 2008 with the album Madhouse and the single track “Jeanne D’Arc” with a bonus video, a new acoustic song.

Mandragora Scream’s fourth album, Volturna, was released in November 2009.[needs update] It comprised 15 tracks including two covers: “Bang Bang” and “Fade to Grey”. A European tour was announced that included support acts from Christian Death and The 69 Eyes.

Volturna Promo

  1. From Metallus: I lucchesi Mandragora Scream, nome ormai noto nell’ambito del gothic italiano, tornano sul mercato discografico con “Volturna”, quarta release per la band toscana e senza dubbio la più matura. Il nuovo disco del five-piece livella tutti i difetti del precedente “Madhouse”, lavoro pur discreto e fa registrare alcune interessanti cambiamenti. Innanzitutto la componente elettronico/industrial è più vistosa e rende i brani atmosferici e carichi di adrenalina. Il bello di questo album consiste proprio nel contenere delle canzoni che non indugiano mai in inutili fronzoli, snelle e con una costruzione melodica piacevole, ma non per questo banale. Episodi come “I’m Goin’Alone”, “Farewell” e “Nails”, possiedono tutto il romanticismo e la fruibilità che ci aspetta dal genere, al tempo stesso mettono in luce le qualità del gruppo, come la parti di chitarra ben presenti e muscolari e la voce inconfondibile, molto personale di Morgan Lacroix, mente dei Mandragora Scream insieme a Terry Horn.

    Piacciono anche “The Calling From Isaiah”, un episodio più heavy e con accenni filthiani e la riproposizione di due classici della musica, “Bang Bang” di Cher e “Fade To Grey” dei Visage, il primo poggiato su delle malinconiche tastiere e il secondo reso in una trascinante veste goth metal.

    “Volturna” vince grazie alla sua estrema scorrevolezza e alle buone idee presenti. Non si può parlare di capolavoro ma è comunque un passo in avanti e per gli estimatori del genere “Volturna” è una release da prendere in seria considerazione.

  2. From Amazon: Another 5-star outing from Mandragora Scream. As always, Morgan LaCroix’s voice haunts and delights the listener. This album is something of a departure from their previous work, mixing in crunchy guitars and driving beats with the usual ethereal gothic goodness. My favorite part of being a Mandragora Scream fan is introducing their work to other people. “How have I not heard this before?” is the usual response. It’s that good.
