REVIEWS:
-------------------------------------------------------------
The Obelisk:
"...This is what it’s all about. Four longer-form instrumentalist heavy psych jams that are warm in tone and want nothing so much as to go out wandering and see what they can find."
(theobelisk.net/obelisk/2019/10/03/fall-2019-quarterly-review-day-4/?fbclid=IwAR2p4WrQYGrFHpA9i5n-YBjr8abbNORPFyjy7e8h8HY47_Ua2lVnGRNsYtQ)

Never Mind The Hype - album review (Dutch):
"...Met zo’n drie kwartier aan muziek is Heliosphere dus een prachtig werkstuk geworden. Hoe je het ook wendt of keert: dit album is simpelweg gaaf, met stoere riffs, een vettige productie en verrassend pakkende songwriting."

BIOGRAPHY:
-------------------------------------------------------------
With strong roots in stoner and space rock, three-man formation Mantra Machine creates instrumental psychedelic jams. A dynamic mix of heavy guitars, fuzzing bass and grooving drums immersed in layered synth soundscapes.

The band hit the ground running in 2012 during their debut at the Sonic Rock Solstice festival in England and quickly released a first EP Stage One. Two years later the full-length release Nitrogen followed. The album received many positive reviews and was picked up worldwide by various blogs and music sites.

In 2016 an invitation for the Roadburn Festival followed, they played at Yellowstock in Belgium and did a mini tour through Germany and Austria.

In 2019 a second album Heliosphere was released on which the instrumental journey into the unknown continues with room for new sounds, drawn-out compositions and unexpected turns. The album is available through Bandcamp, Spotify and other channels.

The album Heliosphere is written and performed by:

Paul Geerts: guitars & synths
Eric Frantzen: bass
Jeroen Schippers: drums

Engineered, mixed, produced & mastered by Steven van der Werff & Mantra Machine at Studio Mono.

Artwork designed by Jonas Louisse.
