News of MAMMOTH GRINDER’s valiant return from a five-year dormancy has been stoking fires over the past month and now, the extreme metal trio have unleashed a video for their new song “Servant of the Most High.” The video, directed by Samu Salovaara, features the second single from Cosmic Crypt to surface before the album’s January 26th release date on Relapse Records.
A meteoric force of aggression and mayhem, MAMMOTH GRINDER are comprised of Chris Ulsh (Power Trip, Impalers) recruited Mark Bronzino (Iron Reagan) and Ryan Parrish (Iron Reagan, ex-Darkest Hour). Self-recorded by the band at Trax East in South River, NJ, mixed by Arthur Rizk (Power Trip, Sepultura, Inquisition) and mastered by Toxic Holocaust’s Joel Grind, Cosmic Crypt is an 11-track slab of primitive, punk-inflected death metal. The brute force of each track—distilling metal to its most barbarous elements—finds MAMMOTH GRINDER at the apex of both fury and songcraft.
The trio will be storming through the United States in support of Cosmic Crypt. Support will come from numerous bands including label-mates Gatecreeper, Genocide Pact, and more. As Metal Injection said of the group, prepare to “get pummeled into the ground.”
Cosmic Crypt—which features stunning cover art from the legendary Joe Petagno (Motorhead, Autopsy, Angelcorpse, Pink Floyd)—is available for pre-order via Relapse.com HERE. Stay tuned for more updates.
