With an explosive stage show fused with an endless supply of musical ingenuity, it is little wonder why Atlanta, GA-based band Mandorico has garnered an underground following the size of Costa Rica and has sold in excess of 10,000 copies of their first two independent releases, Familiar Places and Afrocubanhiphopcaribbeanrock. Since Mandorico's inception in 1997, it's eight members have maintained a rigorous touring schedule, assaulting the Eastern seaboard with over 700 live performances. Mandorico has participated in almost every major musical event that the East Coast has to offer and has shared the stage with diverse national and international acts, including the late great Tito Puente, The Wailers, Celia Cruz, Smashmouth, Toots and the Maytals, UB40 and the Foo Fighters. Mandorico has made appearances on major network television and had their music showcased on MTV's Real World, Road Rules and The Today Show with Katie Couric. Mandorico's "wall of sound" is built of horns, percussion, loud guitars and multiple vocals which smash together urban, rock, reggae, Latin and punk, yielding an incomparable musical monster. The band has paved it's own sonic path and continues to recruit an ever-increasing number of fans as their music travels outside the U.S., resounding in dancehalls and over radio waves in Central and South America. FLAMATAM is the band's first full-length recording in over two years. Written and recorded over the course of 18 months during and in between tours, Mandorico has come up with their most powerful and inspired collection of songs to date. A relentless group of seasoned road dogs, armed with an arsenal of dance-oriented music that will unleash frenzy on any audience, Mandorico is poised to take over the world and reign supreme.
