Mammoth Grinder execute the death metal triple treat: announce release of Cosmic Crypt album, share first single “Superior Firepower,” and reveal 2018 tour dates
And you thought the Chocolate Grinder was epic...

The fourth season is almost upon those living in polar and temperate climes, but it shouldn’t be a downer. Whining like a baby-lunged lunatic will get you nowhere, so let this be the year you embrace the slush soakers, awkward public sidewalk falls, and icicled nosehairs. To mangle one of Shakespeare’s quotes royally out-of-context: now should NOT be our collective winter of discontent. To ease thy pain, try hunkering down with heavy doses of extreme speed and noise so you can combat the harshest calendar quarter head-on and enjoy it at the same time. Try relishing the power and pleasure of having every damn synapse snapped by death metal throwbacks Mammoth Grinder, who have a cool new disc of aural thundersnow coming out on January 26!

Cosmic Crypt is the band’s fourth album and first since 2013’s Underworlds. It marks their first release on Relapse, with whom they signed to earlier this year, and it features original member Chris Ulsh (also of Power Trip) on bass and vocals alongside Iron Reagan’s Mark Bronzino (also of ANS) and Ryan Parrish (ex-Darkest Hour) on guitar and drums respectively. Cosmic Crypt’s cover is adorned with art by Joe Petagno, the man most notable for his long history designing Motörhead sleeves (and for the creation of their famous “Snaggletooth” or “War-Pig” logo).

The sonically-superior first single from Cosmic Crypt is called “Superior Firepower” and it can be experienced with some slow moving visuals of the totally cosmic crypt down below. Pre-order the whole thing now at Relapse or via the Mammoth Grinder Bandcamp.

Lastly, Mammoth Grinder (or “Really Big Hoagie,” as they are never called) are also preparing to melt faces across America beginning in Washington on February 2. With so many shows booked, you shouldn’t have much trouble finding a date near you (apologies to Alaska and Hawaii, as always). Support for some dates will come from fellow Relapse acts Gatecreeper and Genocide Pact. Check out the tour dates
