What do you get when you mix sonic guitars, pounding bass, thunderous drums and dark melodic vocals? Mansrea! Mansrea is the alternative metal group that has injected a brand of aggressively melodic metal into shores of Long Island.

Biography

It all came together in the quiet burbs of Long Island, the land of Emo and Power-Pop. A location where the sounds of modern rock echo the satellite radio dials across the Island, but considerably do not resonate within the halls of the local L.I. music scene as mainstream. It is recently that original music has made the “BIG” resurgence on Long Island and Mansrea wants to be the band that will inject a brand of aggressively melodic metal to the already musically diversified landscape.

“Music is nurtured by creativity, creativity is inspired by emotion, and expression is about having something to say and the freedom in which to do it”, says Peter. “This is and will always be our belief.” Mansrea blends together bludgeoning sonic guitars, pounding, punchy bass and thunderous drums to create a style of rhythmic, bottom heavy riffs underneath their dark vocal textured melodies. Their dark but melodic sound reflects, exposes, and exploits how they view the world, society, relationships, and the imperfections or prejudices that surround their everyday lives.

“Music is really the only true universal language and we feel that there is something for everyone in our music. We like to write about things that everybody can somehow relate to”, states Bart. Certainly, if there is one thing that the band can relate to, it would be the long road ahead of them. Dedication and commitment is the flavor of day. This is the way the group conducts itself. They have no problem building a fan base one by one. “It doesn’t matter whether we play to five people or five hundred people. It’s the same level of energy that we execute with. It’s all about going all out and giving the fans what they come to see, a high-octane performance. If we’re doing our thing and feeling the music, we’d like to think that the crowd will feed off of that”, replies Jonathan.

They are hoping that perseverance will pay off with an opportunity to create music that matters to them, while finding the mass audience they know are waiting for them all along. This will be an effort that will test the group’s belief in themselves and their music to the limits.

Lyrics

Trust

Written By: Peter Giambruno and Bart Salomone

Verse
I know you tried to reach out to me
It’s too late you spent too much time away
Cause I don’t wanna know what you’re about
Your forgotten and I'm never; never gonna trust you no more

Chorus
(There’s no use in trying)
I’m never gonna trust you
(Your lies have swallowed me whole)
I’m never gonna trust no more
(I am through denying)
I’m never gonna trust you
I see it in your eyes and I’m never gonna trust you

Verse
Soon you’ll be a faded memory
I don’t care if you say you’re sorry
I can’t look you in the face; no more
I moved on and I’ll never; never gonna trust you no more

Chorus
(There’s no use in trying)
I’m never gonna trust you
(Your lies have swallowed me whole)
I’m never gonna trust no more
(I am through denying)
I’m never gonna trust you
I see it in your eyes and I’m never gonna trust you

Bridge
I can feel your eyes (always gonna follow me)
I can hear your lies (always gonna swallow me)
I can break the ties (always gonna follow me)
I can hear your cries (always gonna swallow me)
Confuse me; Abuse me; Refuse me…I’m never gonna trust no more

Chorus
(There’s no use in trying)
I’m never gonna trust you
(Your lies have swallowed me whole)
I’m never gonna trust no more
(I am through denying)
I’m never gonna trust you
I see it in your eyes and I’m never gonna trust you

Dusted

Written By: Peter Giambruno and Bart Salomone

Verse
I cannot hold back I’m falling to pieces
It’s spinning around in my head
Tossing and turning I can’t fall asleep now
Visions are all turning red; in my head

Verse
No way to fight it, it’s getting too strong now
I’m hoping that things will change
Heart keeps on racing; I can’t even breathe now
Something’s are getting real strange; things will change

Chorus
I can feel you getting closer
I can’t get away from you
I’m looking over my shoulder
And I’m feeling dusted…

Verse
Chasing my footprints forever I’ll hear you
Can’t get you out of my life
Inside my mind I know I won’t lose you
Feels like I’m stabbed with a knife; in my life

Chorus
I can feel you getting closer
I can’t get away from you
I’m looking over my shoulder
And I’m feeling dusted…yeah

Bridge
Ah…Ah…Ah…Ah; Yeah

Chorus
I can feel you getting closer
I can’t get away from you
I’m looking over my shoulder
And I’m feeling dusted…yeah

Feel The Anger

Written By: Peter Giambruno and Bart Salomone

Verse
I’ve tried to live my life in silence, but you couldn’t let me be
Now I’m about to lose control
I feel it burning up inside me, can’t take much more of this
I feel the power

Verse
Not gonna take your crap no more this is where it ends
I’m in command
Look at what you have created, there’s no turning back
I’m going insane; cause

Chorus
It lives deep inside of me
It’s waiting to come out and
I can’t hold back anymore
I can feel the anger

Verse
Lets see if you like the way it feels, I went the other way
I flipped the script
Now it’s time for you to pay for everything you did
It’s not over; cause

Chorus
It lives deep inside of me
It’s waiting to come out and
I can’t hold back anymore
I can feel the anger

Bridge
Feel it now it’s only just begun and I can feel the anger
Feel it and I know you are the one
Now you brought the evil out of me
Outta me
You brought the evil outta me
Outta me; cause

Chorus
It lives deep inside of me
It’s waiting to come out and
I can’t hold back anymore
I can feel the anger
It lives deep inside of me
It’s waiting to come out and
And I can’t hold bank anymore
I can feel the anger

Incarceration

Written By: Peter Giambruno and Bart Salomone

Verse
Lights are shining and my face is to the wall
Never thought they’d catch me, I’m untouchable
All the money was it worth the time
That’s the price to pay for a life of crime

Chorus
Should I believe in second chances?
Do I betray my only faith?
Break down these walls of degradation
Trapped in a world of incarceration
I’m locked away…Outta the way

Verse
Freedom’s gone with my self-respect
Now my dreams are shattered, live them in my head
Visits kill me rather be alone, time waits for no one
Is Hell my home?

Chorus
Should I believe in second chances?
Do I betray my only faith?
Break down these walls of degradation
Trapped in a world of incarceration
I’m locked away…Outta the way

Bridge
Locked me away, outta the way. Yeah
Sent me away, never see the light of day
Trace all my fears, over the years
Face all my fears; never see the light of day

Chorus
Should I believe in second chances?
Do I betray my only faith?
Break down these walls of degradation
Trapped in a world of incarceration
I’m locked away…Outta the way

Am I?

Written By: Peter Giambruno and Bart Salomone

Verse
I look out my window if this is it I don’t want it no more
It’s my life and I can’t change the way I feel it’s what I’m living for
It remains my loyalty
I won’t turn away
I will follow it till the end, day after day

Pre-Chorus
Cause there’s no way to let go
It comes straight from my soul
It won’t ever disappear; I won’t let it, let it go

Chorus
It’s who I am
It’s what I will be; I won’t ever change
It’s who I am
I wanna be free; I won’t ever change

Verse
Can’t tell what’s my future; nothings for sure
I feel this is the way
I hold on and I won’t quit; I’ll try my best every single day
It remains my loyalty
I won’t turn away
I will follow it till the end, day after day

Pre-Chorus
Cause there’s no way to let go
It comes straight from my soul
It won’t ever disappear; I won’t let it, let it go

Chorus
It’s who I am
It’s what I will be; I won’t ever change
It’s who I am
I wanna be free; I won’t ever change
Yeah

Bridge/Instrumental

Chorus (2x)
It’s who I am (who I am)
It’s what I will be (what I will be)
I won’t ever change (won’t ever change)
It’s who I am (who I am)
I wanna be free (wanna be free)
I won’t ever change
It’s who I am (who I am)
It’s what I will be (what I will be)
I won’t ever change (won’t ever change)
