What the press had to say:
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

All-in-all MANDATORY have showed me that I should listen to more melodic death-metal, as I thoroughly enjoyed “Cartharsis” and I know that any other fan of metal would, easily. Great work and an excellently heavy effort.
- Andrew Green, metal-temple.com review - Catharsis (Oct 18,2014)

“Catharsis” is an album that brings heavy and catchy sounds together as many bands have done before them, but Mandatory has an excellent style that some bands just can’t create.
- Vinterd, metal-addicts.com review - Catharsis (Oct 2, 2014)

The writing is dead on in every way, telling the story that is there without leaving you woundering where part 2 is.

Track Name: End Of Watch
A new beginning
The turning point

This is our time
A new beginning
We’ve reached our turning point
This is the end of grieving
The damage will be undone

We set the course for new directions
We overrun the gates
We are the truth you’re seeking
(Back) We are the Truth
We are coming through

Reset
Regain control
The end of watch is near
The end of watch - is here

We are the poison
Coming for you

Forsaken and left for dead
We stand alone
The vultures that crave for prey
Will not prevail

(Speech) No regrets - no cross to carry -
No sympathy for the unforgiven

Forsaken and left for dead
We carry on
The vultures that crave for prey
Shall not prevail

Reset
Regain control
The end of watch is near
The end of watch - is here

We claim our Territory
And we will not fall back
We call for you to be the keeper
We feed your lust and hunger
We are coming through

Forsaken and left for dead
We’re still alive
Track Name: Act I: Tragedy
We are the truth that you see
Go search inside yourself
We make you feel what we feel
The Act is now alive
You face your inner demons
The sorrow grows inside
The destination is what
Makes you feel alive

We’ll make you cry and scream
And you will laugh out loud
Take the ink and feather
Write your tragedy
You’re burning inside
Until you're purified
So you can laugh
About the pain you feel in live

You’re burning inside out
Restore your life

Embrace the Light within
Shatter the Sky
Your pain and misery
Will purify your mind

You have to see what we see

Now you see the light
(Back)Now see the light shine,
Now see the light
Feel the pain while it’s growing
Leave behind what you saw

Pure… and clean

You’re burning inside out
Restore your life

Embrace the Light within
Shatter the Sky
Your pain and misery
Will purify your mind

You won’t be unforgiven
Track Name: To The Streets
They say we’re born without a soul
It’s all black
But we can’t disguise all the rage inside
Born without control
It’s gone dead
One too many times
Revolution won’t be – televised

Your shots won’t take me down
Can’t you see?
I’m the only truth - ideas are bulletproof
Your shields burn to the ground
No excuse to set the truth aside - kill another tribe

Throw rocks and grenades at me
I’ll stand still
Story of my Life – I’m immortalized
Storm the gates of Doom
Don’t turn back
With our lives at stake we take the toll for your mistakes

We are the force we will not back down
We are the ones we will stand our ground
Let us take it to the streets!
We are the force we will not back down
Take it to the streets!
We are the ones we will stand our ground

(Clean)Fear Us Your Time has come
(Shout) Fear the Freedom
Fear of what’s to come
Fear our judgment
Fear what you’ve done

Rise - It’s Time
I take what is mine

Our time has come
Your time has come

We are the force we will not back down
We are the ones we will stand our ground
Let us take it to the streets!
We are the force we will not back down
Take it to the streets!
We are the ones we will stand our ground
Track Name: Emperor
This life is now over greed will
Not be the immortal we won’t enslave

(Speech) Greed has poisoned men’s souls; Has barricaded the world with hate We have developed speed, But we have shut ourselves in. Machinery that gives abundance Has left us in want. Our knowledge has made us cynical Cleverness, hard and unkind

We sacrifice until we bleed
Our dignity
More than machinery we need
Humanity

Don’t give yourself to these
Unnatural men
Machine men with machine minds
And machine hearts

You aren’t machines
You are not chained
To these ambassadors
Of hatred fear and despise

We sacrifice until we bleed
Our dignity
More than machinery we need
Humanity

The kingdom of God is within man
Not one man
Freedom - Liberty - the empire is gone

(Clean) Let us fight for a new world
(Speech) Let us fight for a world of reason, A world where science and progress Will lead to all men’s independence. Soldiers, in the name of freedom, Let us all unite"!

Unite!

(Clean)For the sake of freedom let a new day arise
(Speech) By the promise of these things, Brutes have risen to power. But they lie! They do not fulfill their promise. They never will! We will

The hate of men will pass and dictators die And the power they took from the people Will return Will return
Track Name: Act II: Catharsis
Share your weakness with the world you see
Face the truth and its catastrophe
Till the tragic fall

See the one who’s eminently good
Bound with him and see the tragic flaw
Caused by himself he will fall

Moral judgment you will find
Excessive pride will make you blind

See him suffer, don’t avert your eyes
Absorb the act, make yourself realize
Soak it up and feel

Let it burn, try to embrace the flame
A hollow shell is all that will remain
Burned out and pure built to last

Moral judgment you will find
Excessive pride will make you blind

Soaring thoughts reach for the crown
Find your center claim the throne

Run, Hide (Hide, sneak,)
Fall for your senses
Call for sanity
Seek, Fight,
Shatter the mirror
That reveals
Your inner beast

Chase your soul
Chase your soul
Your emotional purging
Detach your mind
Rise again from your downfall
This reality calls for you

Moral judgment you will find
Excessive pride will make you blind

Soaring thoughts reach for the crown
Find your center claim the throne

Run, Hide (Hide, sneak,)
Fall for your senses
Call for sanity
Seek, Fight,
Shatter the mirror
That reveals
Your inner beast

Reveal your inner beast
Track Name: Shadowmaker
We are wonders the crown of creation
Walk the earth known as terror of nations

Fear what we do
Fear who we are

Angst ridden Kingdoms
Kneel down to keep the peace
Our reputation a poisoning disease

Feel what we do
Feel who we are

You’re not aware
Of the damage we can do
Soon you will know
Get ready for our show

Burn to Ashes
Confess to the rain
In this moment of madness
The earth won’t be the same
A bright reflection in your eyes
Will take your lives

Loss of control a trigger in your hand
Mankind’s turning into a dead end

Reveal what we do
Reveal who we are

Become aware
Of the damage we can do
Enjoy the to show
Go!

We will fight for
We will march
For peace

All we will find
All we will find is our demise

When all efforts fail
To retain what we create
We get ready for our show

Burn to Ashes
Confess to the rain
In this moment of madness
The earth won’t be the same

Burn to Ashes
Confess to the rain
In this moment of madness
We’re not the ones to blame
A bright reflection in your eyes
Will take your lives
Track Name: For The World To See
Behind this mask of desolation
Building a fortress
On this dead and barren ground
Drowned in a sea of lamentation
Conceal the damage I am safe and sound

It grips his mind just like a phantom
Without a sense of caring,
Bites the hand that feeds
The pressure’s waiting to be ransomed
Clearing the mind of agitation and despair

(Clean)For the world, for all the world
For all the world, the world to see
For what it’s worth, the end is near

So here I go
Welcome to my insanity
Born to live and let die
As your kingdom is burning down
Wanted Dead or Alive

Unleash the fury
Turn back the hands of time
Unleash the fury
No coming out alive

Seven days of madness
Come in and walk with me
Seven ways of damage
Come clean and you will see

See what might have been
Now see what I’ve become
Hear the silent screams
Now see what I’ve become

It grips his mind just like a phantom
The pressure’s waiting to be ransomed

So here I go!
Welcome to my insanity
Born to live and let die
As your kingdom is burning down
Wanted Dead or Alive
Track Name: Act III: Purification
Rise Up!
Find your limitations
Rise Up!
Kill the golden goose
Rise Up!
Liberate your wisdom
Rise Up!
Let the storm break loose

As you stand here
Ruled by fear
It's time to purify

Another average day
In an average life
Another senseless job
Just a waste of time
Wake Up!

Just follow what you're told
Obeisant as you are
To say there's no way out
Never reveals a new

Time to alter
Your approach to Life
Time to alter
The origin of your believes

It's your ambition that sets you free
There' no restrictions Get what you see
So wake up!!

Obedient mind and a heart of stone
See what you have become
A failure, cause the world told you so
That's all you have become

The way - you're on
The only one to go?
NO!
Just so – you know
It's not the one to know

(Background)There will always be an option
(Background)There will always be a choice

Don't blame destiny
For what you happen to be
So speak with your own voice
There will always be a choice

Obedient mind and a heart of stone
See what you have become
A failure, cause the world told you so
That's all you have become

Rise Up!
Find your limitations
Rise Up!
Kill the golden goose
Rise Up!
Liberate your wisdom
Rise Up!
Walk the path you chose
Rise Up!
Break your self-made boundaries
Rise Up!
Keep the dream alive
Rise Up!
Overcome the limits
Rise Up!
Don't live the average Life
Rise Up!
Rise Up!
Rise Up!
Rise Up!
