Mammothfest presents FEED THE RHINO Sat 1st April 2017, plus supports!




Satisfy Your Metal Appetite With Feed The Rhino Plus Loads Of Incredible Diverse Support Acts!


Following the huge success of last year’s Mammothfest which took place in October 2016 and marked their biggest event to date, with larger venues and well known metal acts, Textures, Venom Inc and Conan leading the brigade that led to the victory and accolade of being almost a complete sell out and going on to earn them three festivals award nominations , including the UK Festival Awards in two categories, Best Metropolitan and Best Small Festival 2016 as well as the TBFM Best Independent Festival 2016. The winners are yet to be announced for TBFM so watch this space!

Mammothfest doesn’t leave us in the dark for long as they are thankfully back rearing their menacing head in 2017 and ready to make a massive impact (complete with a metal mammoth concept) and to fulfil a promise.

Unfortunately FEED THE RHINO had to cancel their performance at Mammothfest 2015 due to ill health. But now they are coming to Brighton as they said they would, to the delight of their South Coast fans on Saturday 1st April at The Green Door Store.

Feed The Rhino have been described as too multi-dimensional for the hardcore scene, way too gritty and willing to burn the rule book to ever be considered a metal band and far too inventive to ever be pigeonholed by punk. The band has a strong history of standing out from the crowd over the course of their short career.



Mammoth Mad - Director Steve Dickson


Stephen Dickson (Mammothfest Director) remarks..."We were very disappointed to learn FEED THE RHINO were unable to play but their management, agent and the band were clearly also just as disappointed as us and made very clear promises to recitfy the situation by returning as soon as possible. Health comes first so we were just glad to learn everyone was OK and so here we are, honored to welcome them to Brighton for what is going to be an incredible show with also a stunning line up of support acts from across the UK that will make this a show to remember!"




This event will be an all-day show with ten bands supporting Feed The Rhino, including plenty of acts that have graced Mammothfest in the past. The line-up will be incredibly diverse as the likes of Magna Carta and Seething Akira provide the party metal vibes, delivering a brand of metal and electronica and an incredibly fun atmosphere.

Other festival alumni includes Worthing's Bleed Again, who was one of the highlights of Mammothfest 2016. With a new album due in May, we expect another wild set from them. Core of iO will be on the bill to unleash a level of technicality to blow your mind. The Five Hundred kicked off Mammothfest 2016 with a monstrous attitude and the Nottingham lads return to Brighton to get brutal with us once again.

Brighton's Hawka haven't played the festival before, but this is a great opportunity to show off their ferocious nature which is influenced heavily by the likes of Lamb of God and other NWOAHM style acts. Kickfist delivers a style of industrial nu-metal, think SOiL grooves with eerie Rob Zombie quirkiness.

To add another dynamic, As Flames Rise bring a savage atmosphere to the table with their melodic metalcore influence. Pussy Liquour is an all girl punk band set to unleash pure uncensored female rage. End Of Salvation then comes with a whole new meaning of heavy, being one of the angriest sounding bands on the whole line-up.

You don’t want to miss this immense show, so come down, have a blast and help the mammoth thrive!

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…

INTERVIEW: Mutation (with Ginger Wildheart & Scott Lee Andrews)

Interview with Ginger Wildheart & Scott Lee Andrews of Mutation 


Mutation are an extreme metal act from the UK formed in 2013 by well-known vocalist/guitarist Ginger Wildheart, the man behind the rock group The Wildhearts and the frontman of Exit International, Scott Lee Andrews. The trio is completed by drummer known as Denzel (Dean Pearson) who has been involved in many projects with Ginger and plays in Young Legionnaire. I caught up with Ginger and Scott to discuss the beginnings of Mutation, the new album '‘Mutation III: Dark Black’, touring, the future, mental health and much more in this interesting and honest interview.



As a musician who has played in many bands, most notably The Wildhearts and formed many projects, how did you come to form Mutation and why when you did?

Ginger: I did it mainly because I wanted to make the music that was in my head, and it didn’t look like anyone else wanted to do it.

At the time I was playing and writing with Michael Monroe, and while I l…
