Mammoth Volume is back with their first new album in over 20 years and probably one of the weirdest music videos you'll see all year. The band is now streaming the completely outlandish, slightly unsettling video for "Diablo IV" whose music is equally unique – like Boss Keloid and King Crimson got into a fight with the modern sludge scene. It's fantastic and you need it in your life. Mammoth Volume will release their new record The Cursed Who Perform The Larvagod Rites on August 19. Pre-orders are available here.
"The Cursed who Perform the Larvagod Rites is our first official release in over twenty years," said the band. "A little bit of butterflies in the stomach, and a metallic taste in the mouth actually. How will our old fans react to our music in 2022? Well, we can promise them it is like nothing they could even imagine. It's not metal, it's not Nordic folk music, it's not retro prog; but a bit of everything in between these styles.
"The Cursed who Perform the Larvagod Rites is a fictional (and sometimes not so fictional) journey through fire-ravaged wastelands, medieval castles, long abandoned ruins, post-apocalyptic cities and the modern city. So strap in, because you will be encountering demons, fortune tellers, literary figures, and of course the occasional cryptic gobbledygook lyrics for good measure."
