Mandibulbe biography
MANDIBULE is an experimental metal band based in France that was formed by lead guitarist Guillame FENOY in 2008. FENOY fleshed out his lineup with bassist Romain GAYRAL, drummer Sebastien TOUZEAU, and guitarist Sofiene YAHIAOUI. GAYRAL wanted to make music he wanted to hear, so he created the band based on the concept of being able to listen to music from a number of different perspectives. He created complex and multifaceted compositions based in geometry, multi-part harmonies, dissonance, and stacked sounds to make up the band's debut album ''Praxis'', which was released in 2011.

MANDIBULE takes heavy influence from a number of experimental and progressive band such as TOOL, GOJIRA, KING CRIMSON, PORCUPINE TREE, THE MARS VOLTA, and others to create a dense and powerful sound.

Mandibulbe Experimental/Post Metal

Review by Windhawk
Special Collaborator Honorary Collaborator

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.

Thanks to aapatsos for the artist addition.
