Artist: MAMMATUS
Title: s/t
Format: CD
Label: Holy Mountain
Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"MAMMATUS are a new four piece rock band from Santa Cruz, California. The album consists of four long tracks, the longest, "Dragon of the Deep Part 2" clocks in at a staggering 25 minutes long. With an excess of fuzz and wah noise they manage to combine all the best b-its of 70s psychedelic rock with the sonic attack of early Monster Magnet as they simultaneously enter the realm of heavy drone sludge rock. The sleeve of this album was crafted by ARIK ROPER who has also worked with likes of Sleep, Sunn O))), Comets on Fire and Arthur Magazine. Since forming at the begining of 2005 Mammatus have been playing regularly in their native town of Santa Cruz and in venues in San Fransisco, which has gathered them lots of praise and interest. They are embarking on an intense nation wide tour with their friends Residual Echoes this summer. A deluxe vinyl version is upcoming." -Holy Mountain.

Artist: MAMMATUS
Title: The Coast Explodes
Format: CD
Label: Holy Mountain
Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"MAMMATUS second album The Coast Explodes straddles the line between psychedelia and hard rock while introducing more progressive aspects. The music is heavily influenced by both the power and complexity of the natural world and the ongoing battles of light and darkness. "Excellent Swordfight" is a continuation of the same story told in the debuts epic "Dragon of the Deep." "Pierce the Darkness" explores being a light in a dark world. "The Changing Wind" is a pipe-led psychedelic folk tune that could have been sited by Ghosts Second Time Around and the shanga vibes of the forest in the Autumn. It unfurls into the title track which encapsulates the massive fury of the ocean. For fans of similar Holy Mountain artists Om, Lesbian, or Residual Echoes." - VHF. "The same heavy, spastic psych as Acid Mothers Temple, Psychic Paramount, Comets on Fire and Green Milk from the Planet Orange."-Dusted Magazine.

Title: Heady Mental
Format: LP
Label: Spiritual Pajamas
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"If youve seen mammatus clouds in person, you probably noticed the way those massive formations hang heavy like wilting and bulbous gray-blue sacs, bubbling from heaven towards us. Curiously, as monstrous as they look, these gentle giants are not portents of a storm; they cradle the sky, high above where they belong. How can something so heavy float? If youve seen MAMMATUS the band in concert, you probably noticed how visual their sound is. Guitarist NICHOLAS EMMERT sports a one-piece full-body flight-suit, bassist CHRIS FREELS dons a space cape, and drummer AARON EMMERT steers the ship, staring straight ahead with flashing laser eyewear. The homespun wizard-cum-trippy-dad-at-a-campfire look that theyve adopted softens the blow of the heavy aural trickery afoot. Heady Mental is the perfect title for the third Mammatus album, for it rests heavily in the moldy caverns of heavy metal history, but doesnt get too comfortable before revealing its true colors. This is music for flight, music for the sky, and music for the things that lie beyond. These men are searching for the source through sound. Repetitions of themes with variants spread over four separate songs that act as a whole. Heady Mental functions as a soundtrack to the Mammatus Brain: Heavy / Airy, Earth / Sky, Man / Creator, Complete and Grokd. Limited pressing of 500 copies with digital download." -Spiritual Pajamas.
