MAMMOTH VOLUME – THE CURSED WHO PERFORM THE LARVAGOD RITES
Codes for the Number One album of the August Doom Charts?! Oh my! OH MY! Indeed, we continue on with this insane Friday Freebie session and have a bunch of codes for that amazing THE CURSED WHO PERFORM THE LARVAGOD RITES album by MAMMOTH VOLUME! Out on Blues Funeral Records and courtesy of Red Lead PR; it’s the return of that Swedish quartet!
Mel Lie: “… a vagabond with a cryptic soul … wrapped in a dense cloud of glowing, millennia-old, story-telling desert sand … his eyes refracting the shimmering desert light, with melancholy memories of the blazing smoke of times past, when Beelzebub gave birth to massive riffs in the deepest underground. His mouth is dry as dust and greedily sprouts mythical creatures of spun spirit and fact. His bare feet wear thick soles from endless wanderings through barren, apocalyptic ruins of this world and the modern here and now … his heart glows! Stubborn, unique and with a booming heartbeat that piles the undulating desert soil into monstrous sand mountains. The blazing hot, voracious sun has peeled off his old skin several times and although it has grown back anew, it is unmistakably his “old skin”! A brilliant comeback and a true devil tamer of the Swedish pioneers of stoner rock! Old burned and primal soul of the band, blown around with the dust particles of the new age…”
Adam Walsh: “MAMMOTH VOLUME return with their stoner/prog magnum opus. “Larvagod” rests high on two well proportioned trunks. So fresh you can smell it. This is one of those albums that you get out as much as you put in. Repeat listens extracts subtleties and nuances not noticed the previous time through. The best album I’ve heard, so far this year.”
Their own words: “Mammoth Volume was born in the winter of 1996, called into life by the main song writing team of Nicklas and Daniel. Nicklas engaged his older brother Jorgen to take over vocal duties and with the final addition of bass player Kalle, the band was born. The band is from the town of Lysekil, Sweden.”
