Mammoth Weed Wizard Bastard return with a new album
New Heavy Sounds is very pleased to bring you the new album by Mammoth Weed Wizard Bastard.
Titled ‘Yn Ol I Annwn’, Welsh for Return To The Underworld’, it is the third part of the trilogy of albums that began with ‘Noeth Ac Anoeth’ in 2015 and 2017’s ‘Y Proffwyd Dwyll’ (which got them nominated for the Welsh Music Prize in 2017).
The final phase of their intergalactic journey if you will.
Whilst MWWB as a band, have never been overly visible, they don’t tend to be idle.
2018 saw them release a split 12” with kindred spirits, Slomatics, and being personally asked by Robert Smith of The Cure to play his Meltdown in London. Not to mention playing an international array of dates and other festivals, prior recording this epic third album.
So this Summer, along with new bassist Stuart Sinclair, MWWB returned to Skyhammer
Studios and Chris Fielding, to create ‘Yn Ol I Annwn’.
The band’s music has developed and been honed over the previous two records, but there is no doubt that they have distilled the essence of MWWB into this one. Previous comparisons to Windhand, Yob, Sleep. or whatever, are rendered completely redundant with ‘Yn Ol I Annwyn’.
No one else is pushing the boundaries of heavy like MWWB.
Mammoth Weed Wizard Bastard sound like Mammoth Weed Wizard Bastard, full stop.
‘Yn Ol I Annwn’ is set to land on March 1st 2019 and will be available on CD/DL and limited edition double vinyl.
First pressings will be housed in a gatefold sleeve. With a Green/Blue
marble version and an Amber and Red disc version. Full download included.
MWWB are: Paul Michael Davies, Jessica Ball, Wes Leon, James Carrington, Stuart Sinclair.
