Odcult – Into the Earth (Album Review)

Odcult is a Swedish doom rock band and let me tell you they know how to bring it when necessary but also have very catchy choruses. Let’s dive into this beast of a record titled “Into the Earth.” Odcult started roughly back in 2013, they have a sound that mixes doom, stoner rock, and almost arena like rock vocals in the mix.

The fun part of doing an album review on a band that I have no idea about is that I can just listen and do a completely unbiased review. So when I first put on this record, it’s stoner metal but it’s almost like if Black Sabbath was a little faster and a lot more catchy, that’s the best way I could sum up Odcult, and that’s how it is on the whole album. They have very good production on the album, big bassy drums, crunchy guitars and raspy vocals.

Some things I don’t like about the album is that the bass is very high on the mix and it is almost distracting from the rest of the instruments. Also another problem I had with the album and honestly it’s not bad it’s just not my taste, is the vocals, it kinda sounds like he should be singing for a dad rock band on the radio but it works nicely for this band. You can go check out this band on Bandcamp and Spotify and go support this amazing Swedish stoner rock band!


Today I’m giving this album a 6/10 here on Mammoth Tongue Reviews.


Green Lung – Free the Witch (EP Review)

Finally the time has come for this amazing fuzz filled, catchy hooks, thick bass lines and pounding drums from the London based “Green Lung”! The EP automatically starts very punchy and in your face, which is great, I hate how sometimes a stoner or doom album can take ages to get started, Green Lung know how to get the party started in just the right way, with super catchy riffs and super catchy choruses. Then when you get into the second song “Free the Witch”, the song is just kinda standard in the beginning but towards the end it almost turns into some sort of ritualistic chant straight from an Coven album or your dads horror movie collection. The doom train keeps moving into “Living Fossil”, which has a great sludge riff in the beginning which is very tasty, again the song is very typical but then they throw in a sweet spacey bass solo right in the middle, it fits perfectly. Finally they leave you with a monstrous 8-minuet banger titled “Older than the Hills”, it’s very chill and it features a very cool Wah bass effect in there and a great phaser guitar riff for all the music nerds that care. Then they leave you with 17 seconds of complete silence because after listening to the EP your gonna have to reflect your life.

I honestly couldn’t find anything wrong with this album, the only thing I could maybe point out is that the songs are a little too stretch but that’s me trying to find something wrong with it, my god this piece is perfect, and I highly recommend it to not only just your average stoner metal fan but even someone that’s dabbling into sludge and the heavier side of stoner metal. Go buy these guys awesome merch and go buy yourself this awesome EP!

Windhand/Satan’s Satyrs – Split (Album Review)

I am very excited to be reviewing this beast, I have a long history with both of these bands, and I think one of the best releases of 2018 so far…so let’s jump right in. So to first point out this is the legendary doom outfit “Windhand” teaming up with the biker rock trio “Satan’s Satyrs” and they’re releasing this via Relapse Records. So the first half is Windhand throwing down some heavy tracks with “Old Evil” and “Three Sisters” and to me Old Evil didn’t really do anything for me but Three Sisters is definitely one of Windhands most evil and doom filled songs, it even features a organ! How much more evil can you get. Especially with the fuzz filled and monstrous drums on this track.

Then on the other half it’s Satan’s Satyrs taking a swing at the Split. They first throw “Alucard Ad 2018” at you which is a groovy/70s vibe song, then they continue on the streak of blood pumping tunes with the track “Succubus”, which to me isn’t anything special but hey I think both of these bands did a killer job making a solid Split together. I think personally the winner on this album is Windhand, the singer brings such a atmospheric and creepy voice it gives me goosebumps. Now don’t get me wrong I love Satan’s Satyrs just as much but I’m gonna have to give it to Windhand on this one.

You can go buy this album down below and support both of these great bands!

New and Notable Bands #2

Here are some “newer” bands that have stood out to me in the past couple months.


If you love NWOBHM bands like priest, maiden and angel witch then you gotta check out “Haunt”, these guys are from Fresno, California, and it also features Trevor from the doom trio “Beastmaker”. They released a EP back in 2017 titled “Luminous Eyes”, go check them out and go support them!



Attalla is a Wisconsin based stoner metal band and they bring the RIFFS, combining classic Rock ‘n Roll riffs with great doom vibes, it’s very snazzy. I actually put their last album “Glacial Rule” in my top albums of 2017, you can go and check out that list and go support these guys and go buy their merch!


Green Lung

If your a fan of Red Fang, Bison and Clutch then “Green Lung” is right up your alley. These guys hail from London, UK, and they’re gonna release a very anticipated new EP titled “Free the Witch” coming February 19th, which I will definitely be doing a album review on. Make sure you guys go catch them on tour and make sure you check out their new EP when it comes out!


There you have it, I hope you guys enjoy those great bands! And thanks for all the support and love you guys have been giving Mammoth Tongue Reviews!

Fu Manchu – Clone of the Universe (Album Review)

Making their triumphant return since their anticipated album “Gigantoid” back in 2014, this Orange County based stoner rock band is releasing a new full length titled “Clone of the Universe”, and of course I’m talking about the legends “Fu Manchu”. These guys really know how to combine such cool genres like the old 70s vibes with the 80s skate movement that was going on in California, if I had to wrap them up in a description I’d say they’re like if Jimi Hendrix rode a skateboard.

So now we got the bio out of the way, let’s dig in this monster. On the first couple tracks they try to really bring the punk style, but still incorporating the old school feel to them, but it doesn’t feel like they’re trying to hard, it feels very natural and it flows absolutely perfect. Towards the middle you get kind of a slower/trippy song titled “Slower than Light”, which is great breakup of the album, it let’s you take a breath and relax for a second, but then it jumps right back in the heaviness with the song “Nowhere Left to Hide”. And the title track of the album definitely sums up the whole album, when they released it as their single it didn’t really make much sense and I thought it was kind of a boring song, but going back and listening to it in full it makes a lot more sense now.

The only negative thing I have to say about the album is the last track “II Mostro Atomico”, now the song itself isn’t bad but I just think it doesn’t fit, like yeah I get that they were just trying to have a jam song at the end but the whole album is full of 2-4 minuet bangers, so to put a 18 minuet long epic just didn’t feel right to me, but hey I think overall they make a fantastic record and anyone that hasn’t heard of this great band needs to dig into their old discography and check them out. Make sure you go support Fu Manchu and go check them out on tour!

Weedpecker – III (Album Review)

Ah yes, what a beautiful day, today I will be reviewing the new album from the Poland based heavy hitters “Weedpecker”, these guys have achieved to put out 3 solid releases with the first one being “S/T” back in 2013, and now with their newest album “III”. Let us begin this journey with the start of the album (keep in mind these guys are in the same vein as OM, Naxatras and Foot) they start very subtle and soft, but it leads to something very uplifting and really raises the spirits. They almost remind me of Tame Impala at times with their vocals and chord progressions. This album really puts you on a nice walk through the woods with very great clean guitar sounds, beautiful vocals and great production on the drums.

I tried to come up with some bad things on this album but I really can’t, maybe these songs could be shorter? Definitely not, these songs really need length and time to settle in. Over time the songs almost puts you in a meditative state. Go check these guys out and go support this great band!


Today I will be giving weedpecker a 8.5/10 here on Mammoth Tongue Reviews.

Sundrifter – Visitations (Album Review)

Flying across the astral plane I see a strange light in the distance…The strange light is a band called “Sundrifter”. These guys hail from Boston, Massachusetts, and they are a stoner rock band that blends heavy riffs, beefy drums and hypnotic vocals that’ll make you feel like you’re not human. I am proudly reviewing their new album titled “Visitations” released February 6th. To begin this album really puts you through a journey so it’s not an album you just listen to a couple tracks and go on with your day, you have to listen to the whole thing front to back, the start of the album is like you’ve been blasted off Into space with the track “Sons of Belial”, and lemme tell you the first 3 tracks are just total bangers, but when you get to “Targeted” the album begins to shift and you start to get a roller coaster affect of an album which is pretty great, this album ends with the song “I Want to Leave” which pretty much sums up the end of a great album, it slowly brings you back down to the earth.

These guys sound like if Kyuss and Queens of the Stone Age had a baby, it’s name would be Sundrifter for sure. I highly recommend this band to anyone that is getting into Space Rock or Stoner Rock, it’s got all of the key components of those genres. Go support these guys and check them out whenever they come to your city!
