6 questions to Lily Inksane from Pray Manticore

Since 2012 Pray Manticore exists and has Lily taken the vocal duties. In 2014 they released their first EP called I and in 2016 it was time to record a second EP called II which saw it’s release in 2017. The band is now focusing on a full-length release in the future.

The band played quite a few shows but as far as I can find they haven’t been outside France, the home country of Lily and Pray Manticore.

When did you start with singing and why did you want to sing?
I started singing 8 years ago but there were several moments I didn’t sing at all. I can say I really do it since the creation of the band I’m singing in: Pray Manticore, which was formed at the end of 2012. I wanted to sing since I discovered metal music when I was teenager. This music, and later singing, was definitely the way to externalize all the hardships I’ve been through, everything that happens in this world that makes me wanna scream!

Who influenced you the most at the beginning of your career and who are your current favorites?
I was influenced by bands like DevilDriver, Chimaira, COB, Eths or Strapping Young Lad. They are still part of my favorites, even now I listen to bands like Whitechapel, Benighted, Caliban, Periphery and many more.

What other types of music would you like to sing?
Nothing more than metal!

What is the highlight of your career?
I think all the concerts we’ve done, all the people we’ve met are a highlight! We are so happy to live that and it’s just the beginning!

What was the funniest moment in your career?
Quite hard to answer that question, I just can say we live a lot of funniest moments each time we are together!

Tips for people who want to start singing like you do?
Never stop trying and the most important: have fun!
