Skully Mammoth - Skully Mammoth Demo 2011

Review by Aaron Sullivan.

With a name like Skull Mammoth it’s not surprising that they play a psychedelic style of Stoner/DOOM. Songs are hypnotic trips that sway with an undeniable groove. Guitars dance over a foundation laid down by the bass and drums. Production is raw! It gives the feel of a Black Metal record especially with the guitars. At times sounding less like riffs and more like a cascade of distortion. Vocals are harsh and at times barely audible, adding more to the rawness of the album. I’m not sure if this rawness is due to it being a demo or if it is the sound they are shooting for. I for one love it. All in all a solid demo from a band I hope to much more from.
