Mammoth Weed Wizard Bastard Debut New Song “Eagduru” From Upcoming New Split

Mammoth Weed Wizard Bastard debut a new track from their forthcoming split with Irish doom band Slomatics.

The band commented about the split that: “Mammoth Weed Wizard Bastard have been big fans of Slomatics for years. We have kind of obdurate tastes when it comes to heavy music so we like bands that fly their own flag and in our opinion Slomatics do just that. After chatting to Dave (Majury) it was pretty clear that both bands had a lot in common and when somebody brought up the idea of a collaboration it was a no brainer. We spent a lot of time discussing the content of this record and didn’t want to do just another split record. Although Split records are great for underground bands like us, we just wanted to make it ‘special’. Kind of an early 70s prog ethic to it. We all enjoyed the whole process and I’m not alone in thinking we’d like to do more collaborations in the future with more collaboration between the 2 bands. That’s if we can find the time.”

Mammoth Weed Wizard Bastard Premieres Pre-Release Full-Album Stream Of Upcoming New Album “Y Proffwydd Dwyll”

Psychedelic doom/sludge band Mammoth Weed Wizard Bastard premieres the pre-release full-album stream of the band’s upcoming new album “Y Proffwydd Dwyll”, which will be out in stores tomorrow Friday, September 30 via New Heavy Sounds.

Check out now “Y Proffwydd Dwyll” in its entirety below.

Says guitarist Paul Michael Davies about the new album:

“We wanted to push the doom template a bit, especially as Jessica is not your typical female/doom vocalist, we definitely wanted it to be more than your “typical doom”. The title is in Welsh (as are the album credits) as we are from Wales. “Y Proffwyd Dwyll” loosely translates as ‘The False Prophet’ and there is a concept running through the album… worship. However, Jessica never shows us the final lyrics, she’s a bit mysterious, in fact it’s all a bit mysterious, but that’s cool. We like the listener to make up their own stories to the tracks.”
