If you are going to form a stoner doom outfit, you might as well go all the way right? Hence this band from Wales, who’ve titled themselves Mammoth Weed Wizard Bastard. Noeth Ac Anoeth fits just three large numbers into 50 minutes, stretching out their heaviness. Jessica Ball’s vocals set them apart somewhat though. 300 copies only of the transparent frosted vinyl edition.

7/10 Robin Staff review, 02 December 2015

Let’s put the rumours to bed: Mammoth Weed Wizard Bastard is actually not a modern retelling of The Cook, the Thief, His Wife & Her Lover. Instead, this doom crew are just another in a long list of extreme bands who like to throw the word bastard in as an afterthought. On ‘Noeth Ac Anoeth’, I’m assuming the mammoth is the grizzly low-end, the weed is the slow, forgetfully precise drumming, the wizard is the elegiac, way-too-psyched vocals, and the bastard is me. Just because.

Matters of doom always come to what in the genre floats your boat, whether it’s pretty, ascendent riffs or bassy dirge; this record offers the latter in spades, ruminating on Om’s weighty moments with the dulled-sword tempo of Weedeater. And yet there are moments of fractured beauty in this: bassist Jessica Ball juxtaposes the music with an echoing coo that brings the band out of hell and onto earth’s crooked surface, while swirls of noisy synth make the record spacier, windier, less still.

The record’s third track breaks from the record’s sonic growling for the kind of tune Om like to throw in half way through a surge of hatred, with pretty, cleaned-up guitar heading up proceedings. It shows that Mammoth Weed Wizard Bastard can be dynamic with both their music and the space they create for it -- they’re a no frills doom band with designs on some frills, so how about I use the words "really" and “promising” right here? Really promising.
