Mamuthones is back with an unholy racket of an album that sees him supported by a real (and somehow improbable) band formed by longtime associate Marco Fasolo (Jennifer Gentle singer and main man) on guitar and production duties and 62-year old drummer Maurizio Boldrin, a local legend who since the Sixties has played in countless beat and prog groups including Pino Donaggio’s band (yes, the same Donaggio who wrote “You don’t have to say you love me” and soundtracked multiple Brian De Palma, Nicholas Roeg and Joe Dante movies).
This eponymous album is a definite step beyond previous Mamuthones’ releases: it still retains the droney, foreboding darkness of its older siblings, but this time the sound is the one of a raw, aggressive rock trio. Shrouded in a haze of psychedelic noise and firmly rooted to Boldrin’s inventive and powerful drumming, the album gathers a series of crushing performances interspersed with shorter, more reflective interludes.
The album will be available in UK on February 28th, housed in a luxury gatefold-like cd edition, limited to 666 copies, with distribution through Cargo UK and promotion through HermanaPR in UK. Since March 13th it will be available elsewhere.
