Formed in Wagga Wagga in the early 1990s, and at one stage was a bit of a ‘superband’ with ex-Misery singer Darren Goulding on vocals, Manticore were without doubt one of the most extreme speed metal bands in the country. With interlocking and interlacing riffs played at blinding speed and maximum heaviness, Manticore became a favourite with metal audiences for the quality of their recorded output and the sheer intensity (and extreme rareness!) of their live performances. Integrating the Extreme is an essential release.

“Head On It” saw the band introduce a groove element to its music without compromising their all-conquering sound but the EP met with little support.

The band split up at the end of 1999.

Watts was a member of Walk the Earth very briefly in 2007 before joining Terrorust shortly afterwards. He is also a member of the rock band Heaven the Axe.


Darren Goulding went on to front Sydney death metal outfit Sulkus
