We recently sat down with Paul Ollinger and Tayor Scott of Mantis in their studio to discuss their transition from the Atlanta death metal scene to producing some of the heaviest dubstep out there. The twelve minute interview features several tracks off their Xmas Special EP, which is available for free in celebration of reaching 65k Facebook likes.

The guys are going to be hitting the road in 2014 with Downlink and Dieselboy on the Blood Sweat and Bass Tour. Dates for the tour are available at the bottom of the page.

We’d like to thank Mantis for taking the time to speak with us and we encourage you to head over to their Facebook page and hit “like” so we can hear what’s in store for their next benchmark.
