Mammatus The Coast Explodes on LP + Download
Mammatus is a four piece rock band from Santa Cruz, California. The band's second album The Coast Explodes - originally issued on Holy Mountain in 2007 - straddles the line between psychedelia and hard rock while introducing more progressive aspects. The music is heavily influenced by both the power and complexity of the natural world and the ongoing battles of light and darkness.
"Excellent Swordfight" is a continuation of the same story told on the band's 2006 debut with "Dragon of the Deep." "Pierce the Darkness" explores being a light in a dark world. "The Changing Wind" is a pipe-led psychedelic folk tune that could have been sited by Ghost's Second Time Around and the shanga vibes of the forest in the Autumn. It unfurls into the title track which encapsulates the massive fury of the ocean. Back in print on vinyl!
"The same heavy, spastic psych as Acid Mothers Temple, Psychic Paramount, Comets on Fire and Green Milk from the Planet Orange." - Dusted Magazine
