MAMONT "Passing Through The Mastery Door" [CD, Digipak]
2012 - Stoner Rock from Sweden
Debut album from excellent new band from Nyk-ping/Stockholm. An excellent 8 tracker that includes all the delicious early 70's guitar grooves from early BLACK SABBATH, LEAF HOUND and WITCHCRAFT you could ever dream of! This quartet bends your mind with their sonic boom rythms.Thunder and lightning bring out heavy tunes of doom, insanity into psychedelia and stoner. The production have got a retro feeling, 70's rock had a revival during the latest twenty years, but what is that makes a band stand out in today's great variety of this kind of rock? Is it the encomprimising rawness of the psychedelia-based Sabbath riffs that once was written? Is it the vintage speakers, combined with pure analogue recording that the commercial scene lacks? Or is it just spelled MAMONT? Four enthusiasts from Stockholm/Nyk-ping, Sweden, have managed to shape a palette of doom-based rock with heavy fuzzy elements. The result is a full-length album called "Passing Through The Mastery Door" MAMONT offers us compositions of very high caliber mixing heavy doom, psychedelick rock and stoner. We find the vintage sounds, percussive riffs calibrated and thus following the footsteps of their early Black Sabbath cronies.
