Mammuthus - MNZ Interview: The Distorted Transmission S03 / E27 - Mammuthus

14 Jun 2023 // An interview by Will Stairmand



Wellington Stoner Rock band Mammuthus have a chat about their impending fuzz ridden musical juggernaut "Imperator", shows, fuzz pedals, tracking and all good things.


 

About Mammuthus

Wellington’s heaviest stoner doom act Mammuthus burst onto the scene in 2020, melting faces with their self-titled debut EP. The trio, consisting of guitarist/vocalist Josh Micallef, bassist Matt Bradford and drummer Jay Rodeo, combine ultra-heavy low-end doom with the distorted fuzz of stoner rock, drawing influence from bands such as Kyuss, Sleep, Red Fang, Corrosion of Conformity, Beastwars and Dio, to name a few.

The result is their brand of thunderous riffage with melodic vocals, cruising low and slow, but then flooring it through all the red lights. They have played alongside internationals Sasquatch and fellow kiwi heavyweights Beastwars, End Boss, Pull Down The Sun and Blindfolded and Led To The Woods, as well as performing at Wellington’s Cuba Dupa Festival in 2021, attended by over 120,000.

The new album Imperator will be released on July 7 on CD and on all major streaming platforms. Recorded and mixed in 2022 by James Goldsmith and mastered by Will Borza, Imperator is a hulking shadow of sound and intimidation upon the senses.
