Mandragora is a melodic death metal band from Lithuania that's been around since 1998 when their first 4-song 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 (Wacken Open Air) "Metal Battle Contest", winning the contest and playing at W:O:A. "Metal Battle" finals in Wacken, Germany.
In Spring 2010, the band starts to record the second album at Phoenix Records (owned by one of the best Prebaltic sound engineers, Gints Lundbergs) in Latvia. In 2011, the new album, "Carnal Cage", was released on Italian record label SG Records. In the meantime, in Summer 2011, the band played at the main stage of the Devilstone Festival, along with Benediction, Susperia, Gama Bomb and many others.
