Mammoth Salmon is usually seen in Portland, Oregon (USA), causing massive vibrations with its deep, droning groans and repetitive strokes. It first appeared in 2012. Scientists claim that the animal materialized out of the drones and downtuned guitar noises of today's stoner doom scene, perhaps in a huge lake near a stage where bands like Conan, Yob and Pallbearer once played. Much like its predecessors, Mammoth Salmon thrives on fuzz, a slowly dragging tempo and a rough, raspy voice.
The animal could best be described as an aquatic steamroller, using crushing heaviness and hypnotic noises as main weapons to mesmerize and devour its prey. That prey will never know what hit it and before it realizes it, it's being dragged down into the beast's lair and overwhelmed with this scathing sound. That is, if it hasn't been impaled on those tusks already. There, deep down in the darkest corners of the lake, the Mammoth Salmon hides away from humanity until a new opportunity for feasting on their flesh arises.
The animal has an album out, which you can download for free on its bandcamp page. My advice: if you're a stoner doom fan, you should really get your hands on this download, or on one of the cd's, which come in an eco-pack using soy ink and post-consumer recycled cardstock and packaged in crystal clear eco-bags. Come on, go get it, support your environment, even if there is something frightening about it. After all, it will be here long after you are gone...
