Mentor's third album, “Wolves, Wraiths and Witches”, is a continuation of the style the band carved out on their 2016 debut “Guts, Graves and Blasphemy” – fast and hard, without compromise. The nine new tracks draw from the best examples of the hardcore and metal world, and the lyrics still tell stories from the intersection of occultism and B-horror movies. "Wolves, Wraiths and Witches" seems to be the group’s most intense album so far.
The album was recorded entirely at Tall Pine Records studio; Haldor Grunberg from Satanic Audio was responsible for mixing and mastering as on previous releases; and Branca Studio was responsible for the graphic design of the album.
The band members behind this satanic hardcore act are no strangers to the scene, Mentor are made up of members of Thaw, Furia and J.D. Overdrive. Mentor provide an unholy challenge for those who miss the primitive animal in metal and are fed up with its artsy incarnations. No filler tracks, just heavy rock'n'roll fuelled with hardcore and thrash-black metal.
