MWWB

Album Overview

  • Formerly known as Mammoth Weed Wizard Bastard, MWWB take us into their futuristic psychedelic doom world

  • The Harvest shows a more polished sound from previous releases

  • The percussion is dense and the guitars fill the room with sludge driven rhythms, you won't find many solos, if at all

  • MWWB are an unusual doom band, their style is very unique thanks to the combination of trippy synths and the vocal work of Jessica Ball

  • The synths used throughout the album are an important part of their sound. They are used in a smart way and by no means take away from their signature doom vibe

  • Jessica's vocals are in top form on this release, she has this sensual robotic sound and its fits perfectly within the doom sludge

  • Throughout this album you will hear a few synth-driven interludes. At first this threw is for a loop, but after a few rotations, they just blend right in and help create a cinematic feel to the album

  • The album cover is perfect as it showcases the style of music to a tee

  • Fans of doom sludge who want something different, this is the perfect album to add to your heavy rotation

This song is sci-fi doom at it's finest. With the uplifting stellar vocals floating among sludge and comforting bass, it's just hits all the right notes.
