Dive into the polymorphism that exists on Mammoth’s latest album release Polymorphism. Shrouded by hard rock vibes that are weirdly yet pleasantly juxtaposed by jazz and funky soul, Mammoth exudes a musical genre all their own that is quite hard to put a finger on.
The opening track “Not Yet” begins with some hard-core guitar and drum patterns and ridiculously fast guitar chords. As the song moves along, the drum pattern maintains that hard rock vibe, which keeps you holding on subconsciously to the hard rock rhythms. Then before you know it, you’re dunked right back into that tantalizing guitar shredding and drumming.
“Hallucinogenic Hummingbird” is righteously named because oh what a feeling this song creates. There is a fleeting chord that is reminiscent of a luminescent hummingbird frolicking through a flowered garden, and then we are introduced to a hypnotic female voice that guides us through this hallucinogenically rock induced journey through the natural mind. This is quite an interesting and pleasant song to listen to, the addition of Spanish lyrics also adds yet another layer of mystery and mind-play to the song.
"Rüya" starts off as dream like atmosphere from silky clean guitar that if you aren't careful may put you to sleep. I say that in a good way. It's almost like a sedative that you don't have to ingest. As it progresses the drumming picks up the pace and once the distortion kicks in you won' the sleeping anymore. The climax is the guitar solo that sounds like it could have come from a Pink Floyd song.
Mammoth is definitely not your typical rock band; they emit an incredibly sophisticated and varied sound that is unexpected, dynamic and surprising at every turn. The album is also of great sound quality and anyone into progressive experimental rock soul will greatly appreciate the varied sounds in this collection of songs.
