Threatmantics

Threatmantics

BandAlternativeRock

Threatmantics attempt to crowbar as much into rock and roll as possible, veering from heartbroken folk to balls-out rock to spine-crushing metal to good-time pop. Held together by fine thread and pretty ribbons, they play music that sounds as much like the band they wish they were as possible.

Biography

Mindful they didn't want to spend their lives down the pits or herding sheep, Threatmantics went for the third Welsh cliche - singing. No one could have predicted it would turn out this way...

Heddwyn Davies on viola and singing
Andrew Rhys Lewis on guitar
Gareth Middleton on bass
Huw Alun Davies on drums

Bi-polar by nature, Threatmantics attempt to crowbar as much into rock and roll as possible, veering wildly from heartbroken folk, to balls-out rock, to spine-crushing metal, to good-time pop. Barely held together by very fine thread and pretty ribbons, they play music that sounds as much like the band they wish they were as possible.

Whether they will survive the pits and troughs remains to be seen, but it's a special thing to be able to soundtrack your own adventure.

Threatmantics released their debut Upbeat Love on Double Six in 2008.
Their new album, Kid McCoy, was released in December 2012 on Folkwit records.
