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!"

Band-Maid MCM Comic Con Live Review/Feature - Fringe Festival 29/5/16

J-Rockers Band-Maid make first European performance at huge MCM Comic Con

Band-Maid, one of Japan’s up-and-coming all-girl rock acts, made their live debut to UK/Europe at MCM London Comic Con, which took place from 27-29th May 2016 at ExCel London, hosting the UK's biggest Modern Pop Culture Event.


The Tokyo quintet who formed in 2013, consisting of Miku (guitar/vocals), Saiki (vocals), Kanami (guitar), Akane (drums) and bassist Misa – have been building quite a reputation and fan-base all over with their blend of cute yet deadly rock music and stand out imagery (appropriately dressing as maids) whilst they unleash and deliver their seriously skilled and striking sounds. The concept of the maid outfit aesthetic stems from founder Miku’s experiences in the maid cafes of Akihabara – the Tokyo district known for otaku (‘geek’) culture and passion for rock music.


Through their music videos they have been reaping success and gaining well deserved attention, especially for the videos f…

REVIEW: Spreading The Disease - Insurrection

Modern metal quartet Spreading The Disease from Kent, UK formed in 2014 and then earlier this year in September 2017 they finally unleased their debut album ‘Insurrection’ which shows they are ready to infect metalheads and critics alike with their no-nonsense sounds…
Opening song ‘Find My Path’ starts with a melodic and resonant intro before fierce vocals come in with hard-hitting heavy guitars, it then goes on to feature an effective stripped back section towards the end which gives it extra depth. This is a powerful and strong start to the album.
‘Words Unspoken’ is a thumping tune with great rhythms and is very headbang worthy and incredibly catchy, keeping up the momentum is self-named track ‘Spreading The Disease’ which immediately pulls you in with catchy melodies and is all consuming with mighty riffs and a massive aggressive sound.
Latest single ‘Greed’ is frantic and driven and features some of the best guitarwork so far and again is very belligerent and is bound to get the mos…
