Electric Valley Records is over a week away from unleashing Amammoth’s debut album, The Fire Above. The Sydney sludgy stoner/doom unit has teamed up with 666MrDoom to stream a new track “Shadows” from the album.
The first single, “Walk Towards What Blinds You (Blood Bong),” got its premiere last month via Invisible Oranges; stream it AT THIS LOCATION.
The Fire Above will see its release on digital platforms, digipak CDs, and different variants of vinyl (Solid Orange, Transparent Yellow, and Ultra LTD “Sun Edition”). CD and LP pre-orders live at Electric Valley Records’ homepage and Bandcamp HERE and HERE.
Often trippy and mostly vitriolic, Amammoth is a sludge/stoner metal from down under. The Sydneysiders have been active for a couple of years and already started making waves locally with their loud, frenzied live shows and 2019’s EP, Blackwitch.
The upcoming debut LP, The Fire Above, is based on two different messages. The first message validates the sun as the creator of life rather than a religion. The second topic vilifies the privileged class (such as the royal family, politicians, and celebrities) in our society for their offenses and hegemony.
Sonically, the opus is a scream into the abyss and a sacrifice of the innocents on the altar of the almighty bong. The snarling stoner/sludgy tunes capture the sensibilities of a shot of heroin, a comforting fire on a snowy night, a tender, sensual touch from a lover, and a knife to the throat of enemies.
AbsorbAmammoth’s grotesque and foreboding harshness and kindle The Fire Above.
