MWWB, the experimental space rock doomgaze entity formerly known as Mammoth Weed Wizard Bastard, may have changed their name, but they haven’t changed the fact that their music is a heavy trip into the unknown! Their new record The Harvest came out this year via New Heavy Sounds and it’s a testament to the band’s brilliance. Think about everything you’ve ever loved about doom, and you’ll find it woven into new forms on this record! Between the ethereal vocal highs and the crushingly low riffs, MWWB lays out a vast doom tapestry I could get lost in. We’ve been fans of this band for years, and we’re super excited about this new step they’re taking. They almost lost their guitarist, Paul Davies, to a stroke in early 2020, and the video we’re premiering today for their track “Altamira” coincides with his recovery and reunion with his band mates. So hit play on it below and thank me later!
The release of this video is quite symbolic, as it has timed up perfectly with our guitarist Paul being released from the hospital he’s been in since the start of Covid. He’s made unbelievable strides in his recovery from a severe stroke, and to see him come out of the rehabilitation ward from the brink of death is monumental. All the heartache we went through doing things without him has finally lifted. We’re so glad we get to share these moments with him now. That video will forever remind me of that time without him, the emotion was raw and intense. I can now see it in a different light, and be proud that we pushed through. Massive thanks to all our supporters, and long live MWWB!Jess, vocals
