Marcellus Rex – S/T (Album Review)

Coming straight from the heart of Bordeaux, France, these psychedelic/pop giants made a killer record titled “Marcellus Rex”, so let’s check out this out.

This is the boys debut EP, and lemme tell you it’s fun to listen you, these guys are kinda in the same vein as Torche, and that’s pretty much it, they have a very unique and original sound, combining sounds such as, stoner rock, psychedelic, pop, electronic and a lot of strange noises that remind me of the 90s and I love it. It’s almost so out there it’s kinda like Faith No More or Strapping Young Lad had an influence on the album. And throughout the whole album is like this, every corner they turn or every area they go into it’s leaves you wanting more, but they still achieve to make great songs with great riffs and good dynamics underneath that heavy layer of strange noises.

Ok now for the bad stuff, which I’m absolutely terrible at. The vocals fit very well, the production is great (the bass may be a little too loud at points), the songs have a nice flow to them, this Album is just awesome, and it has pretty much every instrument thrown in it. So I suggest checking this album out and go support these guys, I believe they have a CD available to buy.

Today I’m giving this album a 9/10 here on Mammoth Tongue Reviews.

Deathbell – With the Beyond (Album Review)

Yesssss bring on doom! Hailing from France “Deathbell” is a female fronted fuzz filled stoner metal band. With their new album “With the Beyond.” And my god this album has it all, heavy riffs, monolithic drums, cathedral organs and vocals that’ll put you into a meditative state. So let us begin.

Right from the beginning of this album it is just pure heaviness but it never leaves you getting bored, it keeps you wanting more throughout the whole record. It’s a perfect blend of heaviness but very catchy. Like some sort of mermaid dragging you in with her beautiful voice then killing you brutally.

This album is pretty straight forward, that’s what I love about this genre, it’s very simple and pure. They remind me a lot of Windhand and those sort of stoner metal bands. But they know when to slow things down and get evil but they know when to pick things up and get the party going and I absolutely love that. So make sure you go check these guys out, and go buy their merch.
