Mandragora is a melodic death metal band from Lithuania, that’s been around since 1998, when the first 4-songs demo was released. It gave way for the band to play in the local metal scene.
In 2000 Mandragora established itself as one of the strongest metal bands in Lithuania, performing alongside other well-known local bands, such as Ruination, Dissimulation and Obtest.
During the following years the band played multiple concerts, supporting Insomnium, Dismember and sharing the stage with other Lithuanian bands.
In 2005 the debut album, titled “At The End”, was released. This gave way for the band to perform outside Lithuania, along with some of the most famous Baltic metal bands, such as Neglected Fields, Skyforger and Morrigan.
In 2006 the band changed drastically composition-wise and in 2008 Mandragora participated at W:O:A. “Metal Battle Contest”, winning the contest and playing at W:O:A. “Metal Battle” finals in Wacken, Germany.
