Athens doom foursome ACID MAMMOTH unleash their crushing new « Caravan » video, new album out March 5th on Heavy Psych Sounds!
Arm yourself for battle against gargantuan beasts and watch the crushing 11-minute new video from Greek doom slingers ACID MAMMOTH exclusively on Decibel Magazine now! Their loud-as-hell and hypnotic new album releases this March 5th on Heavy Psych Sounds. Get crushed…
New album « Caravan » is the sequel to ACID MAMMOTH‘s 2020 « Under Acid Hoof » album, and their fourth release on Heavy Psych Sounds Records. Described as « a witchy record for witchy ears » by the band, ‘Caravan’ is an enveloping pitch-black journey into the vast unknown, driven by those infectious anthems the band has been revered for. Entrancing all souls on its pachyderm path, the father and son duo on guitar treats you to soaring riffs that can get can meditative when they’re not crushing you underfoot. Proof with their debut single « Berserker« .
WATCH Acid Mammoth’s new video « Caravan«
Once again, the father and son duo on guitar treats the listener to a horde of fuzzed-out, Iommi-worshipping riffs, while a behemoth bass relentlessly crushes everything under its acid hooves. Drums are thundering, unearthly beats of harrowing doom, and Chris Babablis Jr.’s vocals will mesmerize you with his woeful chants. Heavier and more multi-faceted than its predecessor, « Caravan » is meant to tear you down until the final breath. Prepare to be doomed!
Heavy Psych Sounds will also issue ACID MAMMOTH’s self-titled debut album for the first time on vinyl and digipak, and reissue their sophomore album « Under Acid Hoof » with two new bonus tracks.
ACID MAMMOTH is a doom metal band from Athens, Greece. The band was formed in 2015 by Chris Babalis Jr. (Vocals & Guitars) and Dimosthenis Varikos (Bass). Acid Mammoth is more than just a band of friends: they are a family. In late 2016, the band recorded its self-titled debut full-length, which was released digitally in the fall of 2017. The album was well-received, and it wasn’t long before the band got in the studio again to record its second full-length « Under Acid Hoof », this time darker, heavier and fuzzier.
In September 2019, the band signed to Heavy Psych Sounds Records, which welcomed the Greek doomers to their roster after the first listening of the new album. Their second effort « Under Acid Hoof » was released on January 24th, 2020 and was very well received by fans and critics alike. This fall, the band took part in Heavy Psych Sounds’ series of split releases: « Doom Sessions Vol. 2 » featured Acid Mammoth alongside Italian unit 1782, for an ultra heavy release presenting three new tracks from each band.
Heavier and more multi-faceted than its predecessor, their third and new album « Caravan » is meant to tear you down until the final breath. Like their previous works, « Caravan » was recorded, mixed and mastered by Dionysis Dimitrakos at Descent Studio in Athens, while drums were recorded at Ignite Studio, with an artwork by Branca Studio.
