Hi all, I am new to the site and would like to make a short intro of one of my musical projects, Downward Spiral Mantra is an electronic project from Madrid, Spain that began early 2017, The main producer and multi-instrumentalist is Dave Navarro but counts with collaboration work with people such as Keyzer Soze , Juxta, Gjart , Nostos, Mike Ant, Kimmo Matakainen (Telemacho) and upcoming bands such as Tikala and The Curious Lingams as in their second album Overdrive.
The band is open to every genre as it can be seen in their debut self-titled album Downward Spiral Mantra, despite being mainly an electronic act with focus on progressive trance, hard trance, and Techno we can find Psychdelic Rock touches as well as Industrial and EBM sounds and experimental tracks. Downward Spiral Mantra also collaborates in side projects mainly industrial and metal that will be released in the near future . The group owes its sound to bands such as Death in Vegas, The Cure, Depeche Mode, Nine Inch Nails, The Cult, Curve, Pink Floyd, and also to Electronic and Industrial music from its beginnings from Kraftwerk to Air, EBM and post industrial Rock, Nitzer EBB or Front 242, Front Line Assembly, And One or Ministry, Skinny Puppy, Sisters of Mercy, Oscar Mulero, Stanislav Tolkachev, Christian Wünsch and Art of Trance amongst others…..
Downward Spiral Mantra has released to this time three LPs , the self-titled more experimental Downward Spiral mantra (2017), Overdrive (2017) and the last album Adaptation (2018) . Downward Spiral Mantra main themes explores the dark and light undertones on human nature and all the extremes inherent to it, trying to recreate them in the sound sphere.
