Nascido fora da cena do jazz em Villingen (perto de Stuttgart, sudoeste da Alemanha) de ex-músicos das bandas The Set Corda e aqueles. Mammut é uma banda obscura subterrâneo, cujo único álbum foi o resultado de não-detém-barradas "jam sessions" tarde da noite nos estúdios da MPS. sons das Trevas, com dicas de Amon Düül II, blues-rock pesado (no Frumpy mais freaky ou veia Tomorrow's Gift), com todos os tipos de estranho, toques étnicos e gothic combinados em suas músicas. Embora a banda Deep Purple citado na rocha como uma grande influência, o seu espírito era puramente Krautrock. Seu álbum é uma raridade única lendária, e com razão. A reedição do CD foi retirado devido a problemas legais.
Born out of the jazz scene in Villingen (near Stuttgart, Southwest Germany) from musicians formerly of the bands The Rope Set and Those. Mammut were an obscure underground band, whose sole album was the result of no-holds-barred late night jam sessions at the MPS studios. Dark sounds, with hints of Amon Düül II, heavy blues-rock (in the more freaky Frumpy or Tomorrow's Gift vein), with all sorts of strange, ethnic and gothic touches combined in their music. Although the band themselves quoted Deep Purple's IN ROCK as a major influence, their spirit was purely Krautrock. Their sole album is a legendary rarity, and rightly so. The CD reissue was withdrawn due to legal problems. From "The Crack In the Cosmic Egg"
This group made one of the most legendary German private pressings. It is now incredibly rare. The sound of a squeaking mouse opens the album, released on 'Mouse Trick Track Music' (amazing choice of label name!) The album is a thematically linked "Mammut Opus", with the word "Mammut" included in all the track titles. A rhythmic and dramatic instrumental overture with wistful flute ("Bird Mammut") and a short interlude for piano ("Classical Mammut") put you in the right mood before the lengthy, heavy guitar riffing tracks "Mammut Ecstasy" and "Footmachine Mammut" strike you. Perhaps Elias Hulk and parts of the first Embryo album are comparable to this.
Side two starts with a "Short Mammut" - sounds of gunfire and bomber planes. "Schizoid Mammut" had violent, paranoid lyrics with music to match. "Nagarn Mammut" is their attempt to be more lyrical. The album closes the same way as it started with large doses of instrumental music ("Mammut Opera"), what Pete Townshend would name 'underture'. The most impressive aspect of this album is that all the biting guitar statements are woven in-between the vocals. A typical golden artefact from one of the most fertile years of modern music (1971) incorporating both classical and heavy acid blues influences. Good production as well, considering it was a private release, so I can recommend this album to you with great enthusiasm!
