Henk : Tantric is an American band that has been active since 2001 and has since released six albums. 'Mercury Retrograde' is the first album that ended up at Lords Of Metal. The album will be available digitally via the well-known platforms and can be ordered from, among others, Amazon. In the US, the album will be on the shelves of Wallmart, and other big retailers. Fans of American rock in the style of famous bands like Shinedown and Puddle Of Mudd will probably like this album. The band manages to write fine songs that sometimes turn out heavy ('Angry' and 'Tether') but also very melodic and sensitive as the excellent ballad 'My Forever' proves. Only remaining original member and vocalist Hugo Ferreira has a great voice that lends itself well to the occasional radio-friendly hard rock of these Americans. This is simply a fine album from Tantric.
