MAMMOTHFEST "BEST OF BRITISH" 30 DATE TOUR CONFIRMED!‏






















Mammothfest has been hard at work putting together a 30 date national tour to seek out 20 of the best underground acts to be selected to complete the 80+ band line up at MAMMOTHFEST 2015 between Friday 2nd - Sunday 4th October 2015.

The MAMMOTHFEST team will bare witness to over 150 bands throughout the summer and provide much needed energy and investment into certain areas especially where there are venues that are currently at risk of closure.

Not only that, the franchising of the MAMMOTHFEST brand across the UK gives localised promoters greater reach to draw in larger customer numbers. Some have even set up their own one day festival style events like the "Among the Wolves Festival" in Wolverhampton!



Stephen Dickson, the Mammothfest director commented“Having 30 promoters all over the UK combine like this has been a Mammoth task but now the network is in place we are seeing a national buzz around these events. Promoters are hyped about the project and have seen a great uptake on their shows while bands all over the UK are keen to show they have got what it takes to play MAMMOTHFEST 2015. But I must add, this is not a battle of the bands, these are simply 30 show case A&R events that give our team an accurate measure when considering which bands to book for our main event.”

The 20 bands will not be selected until the 30 date tour has been completed. At which time MAMMOTHFEST will formally announce those bands selected to play the main event in October 2015. 



Stephen Dickson adds: “If there are any bands keen to get involved and play one of these shows go to www.mammothmetalfestival.co.uk/community and contact your local promoter but hurry, most events are now full!"

INTERVIEW: Cellar Darling (Switzerland)

INTERVIEW: Cellar Darling (Switzerland)


Cellar Darling is comprised of Anna Murphy, Ivo Henzi, and Merlin Sutter who recently formed following the spilt from previous well-known folk metal band, Eluveitie. The trio have been hard at work since, creating their anticipated debut album 'This Is The Sound' which was released June 30th via Nuclear Blast Records and have impressed fans and press alike with their fresh and unique sound which has been dubbed as "the new wave of folk rock“. This is an exciting and busy time for the band, so I caught up with them to find out about their origins, their new album, touring and what is in store for the band amongst other things..

Can you tell us about the formation of Cellar Darling following leaving your previous band Eluveitie and how the band came to be?
Merlin: What I remember most clearly is how quick it went. As you might know, the whole thing with Eluveitie came very unexpected for us - we were informed of a decision by the remain…

REVIEW: Bobaflex - Eloquent Demons

Hard Rockers Bobaflex from West Virginian are back to wreak havoc with their eighth album ‘Eloquent Demons’ which is the follow to 2015’s ‘Anything That Moves’, this sees not only their first release through Thermal Entertainment but their first actual label release in a while after the band decided to go independent. They are a very hardworking and tireless band, having extensively toured, and even setting records for this, they certainly don’t do anything by half measures.
The opening intro and title track sounds very appropriately evil, with a creepy intro speech to set the scene whilst we wait for the demons to be fully unleashed…
First proper track ‘I Am Nightmare’ immediately sees heavy dark guitars and melodic group singing, which give it a classic feel with a gritty edge and is possesses a hell of a powerful chorus, not to mention a killer solo – this will be hard to forget.
Keeping the momentum going is ‘Long Time Coming’ which is equally as hard-hitting, with groove ridden and…

REVIEW: Vrona - Impermanence (Prog Metal)

Prog metallers, Vrona released their debut EP 'A Lapse In Time' last year which received positive press and even led to them being compared to the likes of heavyweights Karnivool, TesseracT and Tool, minus the vocals, as in 2016 they were an instrumental act. Now in 2017, they are back, not only with a new two-track release titled 'Impermanence' but they have also unveiled and added an extra dimension to their already massive sound with the introduction of a vocalist Jamie Ball.

The main title track 'Impermanence' is ambient and textured. The vocals are pleasant, captivating and varied which immediately gives them a different feel and layer, proving that adding vocalist Jamie was a wise move. It features soaring and powerful moments throughout. The fact that they now have vocals doesn't overpower the well crafted and intelligible instruments either but only acts as the perfect unison, with both complimenting each other wonderfully. They are all impressive mu…
