Mammothfest Unveil Official Trailers For 2017 & Reveal 2019 Goals

MAMMOTHFEST Release Official Festival Trailers & Reveal Aims For 2019

Plenty who have attented Mammothfest before will know the kind of carnage that unfolds on each day at the festival. For those who have never been before, you can now get a taste of what to expect across the weekend as Mammothfest has unveiled footage from previous events.

There are four videos to watch, from the "weekend" video with a preview of everything you can experience at Mammothfest over the three days, to the separate videos of daily themed footage.

This includes the Friday, which is the "Black Metal Day", headlined by Rotting Christ. The Saturday, headlined by Fleshgod Apocalypse, a day packed with a variety of extreme styles in metal. Finally, the Sunday "Doom Metal Day", headlined by Amenra. All headliners are exclusive to Mammothfest in 2017!

This is the perfect way to either relive your previous experiences of the festival or get your first glimpse of the expected fun and chaos that is destined to be had in 2017.

Mammothfest 2017, which is held at The Arch in Brighton from October 6th to October 8th is not to be missed and was recently featured in Metal Hammer (UK) in the festival preview last month under the 'best metal action at UK festivals'. See why in the trailers below!

Future Plans For Mammothfest
Even though we haven't even reached Mammothfest 2017 yet, the festival organiser, Steve Dickson, has been thinking ahead to where this festival can be in two years time if 2017 is a success.

Currently, Mammothfest is a metropolitan style festival and has been since the beginning, but the goal has always been to push the festival to become an open air event.

With the likes of Hevy Fest and Sonisphere no longer options for open air festivals in the South of the United Kingdom, along with Download and Bloodstock further up the country, it is a strong desire for Mammothfest to tap into the demand of an outside festival for heavy music in the south.

Each year, Mammothfest grows as an event and that target is getting closer, to the point that in just a couple of years this can be a reality. We want customers to be a part of history, to be the tipping point that could very well turn a possibility into an absolute certainty.

In 2019, our hope is that for everyone involved in Mammothfest, from the organisers to paying customers to be able to say "We made Mammothfest what it is today".

Let's sell this year out and make what was once a pipe dream come true!
The director Steve Dickson comments "It has been our dream from the start to become an open air festival. We have the site and plans are coming together very nicely, we just need to hit our targets each year and this will become a reality.

This is why it is so important that everyone gets behind us including press, sponsors, customers and the bands; (not because we are greedy for money, every penny gets reinvested into growth) because we want to provide a metal festival in the South so people don't have to travel for so many hours to go and see their favourite bands.

Not only that, we have some insanely cool ideas that will ensure Mammothfest becomes an incredible weekend experience for all. All of us at Mammothfest urge everyone to secure your tickets ASAP and be a part of history. A huge thank you goes out from the team and I for all the support we have got to date! See you all at Mammothfest 2017!"

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…
