The Golden Mantis are the Mannheim/Germany based musicians Silvia Subosco and Roger Münzenmayer. In December 2019 their first songs "Red Wave" and "The Fountain" were released on Soundcloud. Both made it into the "new and hip" charts of the music platform at the first go. "Red Wave" reached the second place and "The Fountain" was even at number 1 for two weeks.
The debut album of the band "The Golden Mantis" was released in April 2020 and, including the two singles "To die in winter" and "Disturb", achieved around 60,000 Spotify Streams and more than 500 worldwide radio airplay by the end of June. The band's songs are heard in 53 countries.
Golden Mantis songs are a unique melange. Classical singer/songwriter meets Indie Rock, Dark Folk, Chanson and 80s New Wave. The sound of the band is carried by the unmistakable soft and deep voice of Silvia Subosco, her extraordinary melody leading and a melancholic basic mood. All songs are written, composed, arranged and produced by her and Roger Münzenmayer.
