The Spaceships Of Ezekiel 9/8/19
Today's Video Of The Day is Welsh Cosmic Doomers Mammoth Weed Wizard Bastard's trippy, new track 'The Spaceships Of Ezekiel’, taken from their latest album ‘Yn Ol I Annwn’, released in March. Welsh for 'Return To The Underworld’, it's the third part of a trilogy of albums from MWWB that began with ‘Noeth Ac Anoeth’ in 2015 and 2017’s ‘Y Proffwyd Dwyll’ (which got them nominated for the Welsh Music Prize in 2017). The eight songs that comprise ‘Yn Ol I Annwn’ sees the band, consisting of Paul Michael Davies, Jessica Ball, Wes Leon, James Carrington and Stuart Sinclair, delve deeper into their collective influences, embracing full on Space Rock, atmospheric film soundtracks, melancholic acoustic interludes, Psychedelia, cosmic moog’s and percussion, moments of introspection and light … and of course, large helpings of Doom. The fat riffs, big hooks and endless space grooves are all present and correct, as the band prepare for two upcoming shows at the ArcTanGent Festival next Thursday 15th August and London's Chaos Theory Festival on 29th February next year.
