3 stars French outfit MANDIBULBE was formed in 2008, consisting of members with backgrounds in bands such as 4/3 Trio and 109. The quartet finished recording its debut effort "Praxis" in 2009, and was subsequently signed by Musea Records, which issued the album on its Parallele imprint in April 2010.

Instrumental progressive metal is the name of the game for Mandibulbe, with a sound technical approach and quite a few experimental facets. And while it may not be a stellar example of this type of music, it is a well-made effort that should sit well with those who have an affection for material of this kind. And while the final track's foray into the rap metal universe may alienate some listeners, the other nine pieces on "Praxis" should address the needs of a sophisticated metal audience with a taste of instrumental exploits quite adroitly.
