Album: Mammatus - "Mammatus"

Heres some absolutely blistering psych rock from this Santa Cruz, California band. The album freaks out, grooves, and will have you floating along the astral planes in no time. "The Righteous Path Through The Forest Of Old" concludes with one of the finest riffs that will ever be conceived by anyone, after it settles into an almost Sabbathian groove. "The Outer Rim" is a spaced out jam that will take you just where it says it will. And "Dragon Of The Deep" was so massive that they had to divide it into two parts, the first having a lot more, dare I say, funk, and the second slowing down quite a bit as it plods along to it's massive conclusion which ever-so-slightly brings to mind Sleep's "Dopesmoker". Absolute riff mastery. This album should appeal to fans of space and stoner rock alike, so take a gamble. I guarantee that by the end of the first track you won't be disappointed. Serious rocking will occur. Far out.
