Icelandic indie rock band Mammút releases new album today!

Mammút are melodic and catchy and beautiful and addictive. Formed in 2003 as ROK, an all-female trio highlighting vocalist Kata (Katrína Kata Mogensen, daughter of former Kukl bassist Birgir Mogensen), the group expanded in early 2004 to a 5-piece band and renamed themselves to Mammút. Today they craft distorted and beautiful lullabies while maintaining a solid grasp on melody and an eternally independent spirit.

MOJO compliments them with their new album: "hough snatches of the múm glitchiness of yore remain, their rockiest album to date supports a goth edge, touches of 'Unforgettable Fire' U2 and pre-default-dial Smashing Pumpkins with a folky undercurrent". Prog describes the album as a beautiful blast of dramatic art rock, alternating between darkness and bright light, overflown with personality. Louder Than War concludes that the album is "brilliantly powerful stuff".
