Mentalist was founded in early 2018 by Peter Moog (guitar) and Kai Stringer (guitar) in Saarbruecken / Germany. They asked their friends Thomen Stauch (drums) and Florian Hertel (bass) to join Mentalist. In 2019 Rob Lundgren (vocals) completed the lineup.
Our goal with Mentalist is to create a very melodic and powerful album that is bursting with power and enthusiasm. We hope that listeners will be able to honor this and hear and feel our love for this music, because then we have reached our goal.
We are Mentalist
Freedom of Speech
The new album will most likely be called Freedom of Speech and has 10 tracks, including the intro. We are also happy that two excellent guest musicians will back up our songs.

Oliver Palotai (Keyboards, Kamelot, Ex-Doro)
More information will be added shortly.
The album will be released at the beginning of 2020.
We are planing our tour for 2020.
The first song of „Freedom Press“ has already been released.

At first the Mentalist appeared to Peter in his dreams and forced him to found the band.
This design was made by Thomas Ewerhard (i.a. known as the artist of the cover artwork of the band Avantasia).

As you can see, our creative thoughts are spinning all day, just waiting to be processed. This is one of the strengths of this band.
We all are constantly working on new material for the debut album and partly yet on songs for further releases.
When, for example, one of our members yet has to fulfill a recording for a song of our debut album, then the other band members use this time to already compose material for our second album.
