MAMMOTH GRINDER To Release Cosmic Crypt Album In January: "Superior Firepower” Track Streaming; Tour Dates Announced
November 29, 2017, 8 months ago
Underground extreme metal trio Mammoth Grinder return after five long years with their fourth full-length, Cosmic Crypt, a non-stop, meteoric force of aggression and mayhem. 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.
Frontman Chris Ulsh (Power Trip, Impalers) recruited Mark Bronzino (Iron Reagan) and Ryan Parrish (Iron Reagan, ex-Darkest Hour) to take Mammoth Grinder to new heights of misanthropic rage and blazing songcraft. Features stunning cover art from the legendary Joe Petagno (Motörhead, Autopsy, Angelcorpse, Pink Floyd). Stream the new track “Superior Firepower” below. Cosmic Crypt is due out January 26th on CD/LP/Digital via Relapse Records. Physical packages and digital order are available via Relapse.com here and all digital retail outlets.
Cosmic Crypt tracklisting:
"Servant Of The Most High"
