Mantas

M:Pire of Evil / Ex-Venom

Jeff Mantas, founder of black metal legends VENOM and now M:PIRE OF EVIL.

"You know when you pick up a guitar and feel like you have played it forever...well that's a Caparison!...My C2 Series Angelus is now the mainstay of my touring and recording armoury, quite simply put...it's awesome!"

Without Mantas there would be no Black metal, a simple fact! Not many people can lay claim to inventing a whole new genre but while playing in Venom Mantas was a genuine rock n' roll pioneer.

With his new band, M:Pire of Evil, he continues to churn out pure classic hard rock and metal riffs and are currently destroying stages all across the world!
