ZT PREMIERE: ATMOSPHERIC DOOMSTERS MAMMOTH STORM SHARE A NEW TRACK!
In 2003, the Swedish Gothic/Doom-sextet Draconian found its home at Napalm Records. Over a decade later, and in natural progression, Napalm has also secured a home for the juvenile new band and brain-child of Draconian guitarist Daniel Arvidsson: Mammoth Storm.
Living up to the name, Arvidsson takes on bass and vocal responsibilities here with even more oppressive and bleak sounding doom and droning. Following-up the band’s self-released debut EP, Rite Of Ascension (2014), Fornjot, the band’s full-length debut, draws its name from the ancient Norse mythology: Fornjotr, a giant and ruler of Finland, Kvenland and Gotland. This sublime elemental force is acoustically transcribed on Fornjot, with its energetic, almost elegiac pieces, and the visualisation of Arvidsson, standing high on cliffs, with solid rocks bursting and commanding the wind and seas as well.
