Mammoth Weed Wizard Bastard announce third album ‘Yn Ol I Annwn’ – March 2019 release; pre-order now

Wrexham based doom/space rock band Mammoth Weed Wizard Bastard have announced the follow up album to their 2017 release ‘Y Proffwyd Dwyll’ (New Heavy Sounds), an album that literally bludgeoned you into submission with its almost etheral riff based doom.

In late 2017 they released a split EP with Slomatics entitled ‘Totems’ (Black Bow Records) that further expanded their sound to at times almost hypnotic levels.

As such excitement is building for the arrival of ‘Yn Ol I Annwn’ (Welsh for ‘Return TO The Underworld’)

The eight tracks that comprise this album see the band delve deeper into their collective influences, embracing full on space rock, atmospheric film soundtracks, melancholic acoustic interludes, psychedelia, cosmic Moogs and percussion, moments of introspection and light … and of course, large helpings of doom!

A preview video has been produced:

Previous vinyl editions of both albums sold out, were repressed twice and have again sold out; as such pre-orders for ‘Yn Ol I Annwn’ are being taken now direct from Cargo Distribution.

First pressing is a double vinyl in a gatefold sleeve with 2 colour variants.

Variant 1 in Green/Blue marbled vinyl.
Variant 2 in Amber and red disc vinyl.

Main CD package is a 4 panel digipack with booklet

Phil Newall is 47, from The Wirral - he earns his living not writing about music nor playing music...though sorely wishes he could. He was fortunate enough to see many of the first generation punk bands when they played the U18's matinee shows at Eric's, Liverpool. As an attendee at Eric's he was exposed to punk rock, dub reggae, art rock, and all manner of weirdness; as a customer at Probe Records he was variously served and scowled at by Pete Wylie and Pete Burns - he has written for Record Collector, Whisperin & Hollerin, and Spiral Scratch and wanted to write a book detailing the Liverpool punk scene; however with 'Head-On' Julian Cope beat him to it...and frankly did a much better job.
