1er album des Anglais de PRAYING MANTIS, "Time Tells No Tell" fut en son temps considéré comme un équivalent à l'album éponyme d'autres britons à la destinée plus prometteuse : IRON MAIDEN. Ces précurseurs de la scène NWOBHM aux côtés de SAMSON, SAXON et DEF LEPPARD s'orientèrent plus vers une musique typée AOR par la suite, mais ce premier effort s'adresse clairement aux fans des groupes sus-cités. Pour la première fois réédité en CD, entièrement remasterisé, "Time Tells No Tell" se doit de désormais trouver sa place dans les discothèques, entre "Pyromania", "Killers" et "Wheels Of Steel".
For many of us, the one good thing that came from punk rock was an explosive do-it-yourself attitude. It was this back to basics approach that fuelled the rise of the late 70s and early 80s hard rock explosion, a movement appropriately dubbed the NWOBHM. Amongst its principles were hugely successful acts such as Iron Maiden and Def Leppard, closely followed by the likes of Samson, Saxon and... Praying Mantis. Formed by brothers Tino and Chris Troy, Praying Mantis developed a reputation for delivering thinking man s metal. Indeed, they had the musical chops to rival and, at times, outshine the competition by utilising twin lead guitar, ambitious arrangements and multi-layered harmonies; their songs were melodic yet intricately arranged and packed a powerful punch. In addition, like most acts from the NWOBHM school of hard knocks, they put in the necessary road-work taking their message to the metal masses. Time Tells No Lies , produced by Time Friese Green (Touch), engineered by Mike Shipley (Def Leppard) and housed in a stunning Rodney Matthews designed sleeve, was originally issued in 1980, and attracted highbrow praise positioning them as a band to definitely watch out for. Sure, in the end they didn t quite reach the peak of popularity attained by Maiden or Leppard, but their presence on the scene was not without significance and Time Tells No Lies remains a gleaming testament to their talent.
