Passing Through The Mastery Door
- CatalogBilocation 12
An excellent 8 tracker that includes all the delicious early ’70s guitar grooves from early BLACK SABBATH, LEAF HOUND and WITCHCRAFT you could ever dream of!
This quartet bends your mind with their sonic boom rythms.Thunder and lightning bring out heavy tunes of doom, insanity into psychedelia and stoner. The production has got a retro feeling, ’70s rock had a revival during the latest twenty years, but what is it that makes a band stand out in today’s great variety of this kind of rock? Is it the encomprimising rawness of the psychedelia-based Sabbath riffs that once was written? Is it the vintage speakers, combined with pure analogue recording that the commercial scene lacks? Or is it just spelled MAMONT?
Doom-based rock with heavy fuzzy elements. The result is a full-length album called “Passing Through The Mastery Door” MAMONT offers us compositions of very high caliber mixing heavy doom, psychedelic rock and stoner. We find the vintage sounds, percussive riffs calibrated and thus following the footsteps of their early Black Sabbath cronies.

This is a quality album from start to finish. It’s some of the best use of fuzz mixed with desert and psych rock. For fans of the Truckfighters, this may be the best album they never recorded.
Where their previous demo had given some hint of a retro ‘70s influence, the debut full-length from Nyköping, Sweden, four-piece Mamont is more thickly, densely fuzzed. Passing through the Mastery Door is a fairly ambitious title for an act making their debut, but the Ozium Records release is accordingly sure of itself and of its aesthetic, culling influence both from the ‘90s stoner rock heyday and the natural, laid-back vibing of modern European heavy psych
