Inspired by folk/delta blues from the 20's-30's, Mary Climbed the Ladder for the Sun is a pocket full of fingerpicking, strong lyrics and nostalgic landscapes. Being his first album, it works as a timeline of what Mandrax Icon has been since he was just an idea six years ago. Old and new songs are logically connected into a beautiful album. But beware these songs: Mandrax Icon delivers feelings of all kind until you surrender.
