With three albums under their belt, tours and supports with Wishbone Ash, Focus, Walter Trout among others and their new studio album ‘Reflections’ earning rave reviews, The Mentulls have been winning over audiences in the UK and Europe with their own unique brand of ‘prog blues rock’
The Mentulls have become known for their refreshingly unique sound that sets them apart from the rest of the crowd. This is certainly the case on the band’s new studio album ‘Reflections’ which features nine genre defying tracks. This is not surprising as each member of the band grew up listening to a wide variety of music, especially 60s and 70s classic rock and blues, and a healthy portion of the earliest progressive bands.
Although the average age of the band is just 20 years old, this does not make it a novelty, this is serious music that begs you to delve in and discover the details and lose yourself in the lush soundscapes.
Supports and tours with some of their heroes such as legendry bands like Wishbone Ash, Focus, Walter Trout, Dr Feelgood, Roger Chapman (Family), Chicken Shack, Mick Ralphs (Mott The Hoople, Bad Company), King King, Aynsley Lister and more have followed.
On 10th July 2015 the band released their long awaited new studio album ‘Reflections’. “We have made a really layered album that we’ve all worked very hard on”, says twice British Blues Award nominated guitarist and vocalist Andrew Pipe. “We believe it’s got something for everyone on there. We wanted to approach the way we recorded this one differently, taking time to get the arrangements interesting and to further develop the sound of the band”.
The album which is produced by award winning producer Wayne Proctor and mastered by legendary mastering engineer Ray Staff (Led Zeppelin, Genesis, Rolling Stones, Rush), deemed by Classic Rock Magazine as “Adventurous” and declared “The best album I’ve heard all year by a country mile” by Rock Society Magazine, also made it to #28 on Amazon UK’s best sellers rock chart and has been a favourite on radio shows worldwide including airplay on BBC Radio 2.
As one reviewer put it straight, “in 2015, it’s hard to stand out. Unless you are as superb as The Mentulls are, that is”
The Mentulls are: Andrew Pipe – Guitar and Vocals, Jamie Pipe – Keyboards, and Nick Colman – Drums
