NEW YORK, N.Y. (January 19, 2017) – Pioneering NYC metal trio THE MANTLE, led by Max Gorelick (son of legendary saxophonist Kenny G), takes full advantage of the unrestricted nature of instrumental music. While Kenny G might not be regarded as the patron saint of heavy metal, he IS the patron saint of composing powerful instrumental music, and his son Max has discovered that the spirit of Kenny’s music translates incredibly well to the realm of progressive metal. The band’s self-titled debut The Mantle is an invigorating, meticulously crafted ride that will surely establish Gorelick and the band as some of the premier songwriters of their era - within progressive and instrumental metal, without a doubt, but also across modern music at large.

The Mantle is available now for free streaming and download via Bandcamp and a variety of other digital providers. Listen/download it now at this location and pick up official merchandise at the same link.
