Green Lung – Woodland Rites (Album Review)

Green Lung has yet to disappoint with their releases. Their newest release “Woodland Rites” captures heaviness with awesome layering, and even some saxophone action…what more could you ask for, let’s jump in.

The album starts by throwing you into the woodlands themselves with beautiful acoustic riffs and just a awesome jam between the whole band. Then leading into my favorite track “Woodland Rites” with Groovy verses and super hooky choruses that’ll get stuck in your head for days.

Then we get to the middle of the album with “Templar Dawn” and this track is nothing but doom riffs and sludgy drums, and I must say they have really awesome samples on this album. This album is really good with staying consistent than switching things up with adding organs and little things here and there which really make a big difference and people really dig those different elements.

Towards the end of the album we get really beautiful clean guitars with tracks like “May Queen” and “Into the Wild” and these two are such a good combo to end the record.

These band has impressed so much these last couple of years just releasing total bangers and I don’t think they’re gonna stop anytime soon. So I highly recommend checking out these dudes if they come to your city and go buy their new album and merch and all that good stuff.

Today I’m giving this album a 8/10 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!

Today I’m giving this EP a 9.5/10 here on Mammoth Tongue Reviews.

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!
