Mandatory Short Info

MANDATORY is a melodic death / thrash metal band from Linz in Austria.

Between thrash influenced riff-machine Mike and progressive metal enthusiast Chris, the band creates a tight and technically proficient sound with an aggressive drive, while still leaving space for catchy guitar hooks and melodies.

Delivering a professional and entertaining live performance has always been a top priority for Mandatory which was rewarded when they won the International Live Award in 2011 – a price that approximately 1.000 bands from 6 different countries battled for.

Their 2014 effort Catharsis sets the bar even higher: neckbreaking riffs, highly intense vocals and even more shredding and complexity.
