The Mandate of Heaven
Burn Me for your Friends (self-released)

By: Mike SOS

The Mandate of Heaven is one man's musical vision fleshed out into 13 tasty nuggets of DIY indie rock that will swirl around your head like sugarplums on Christmas morn. Greg Pier's style falls somewhere between the psychedelic Dave Wyndorf and the slacker J. Mascis, with neither getting an edge. This Syracuse native's penchant for hard hitting melodies can best be found on tracks like the clubbing "Real Devil Music" and the fuzzed out "Loved", times where Pier truly shines like an indie rock deity. If you like your music lo-fi and full of zest, check out the quirky brilliance of The Mandate of Heaven.
