The first foreign review has arrived…
Christianity today is an American website with, according to Wikipedia, over 10 million page views/month covering Christianity in general and culture from a christian perspective. And The cardiac defect have been chosen to this weeks Indie Spotlight on their site with a grade 4/5. Read the review here
The review gives us very nice comments like:
“beautiful, anthemic rock that wrestles with spirituality and the human condition.”
“Armed with fierce guitar licks, pounding drums, and more questions than answers in the thought-provoking lyrics, the song effectively sets the stage for an adrenaline-packed set”
“Mammuth may not be a household name yet in the United States, but the Swedish rockers’ music transcends culture differences and has a decidedly universal appeal—not only musically, but in their desire to live a life that really matters. And have I mentioned that it really rocks?”
I told you last post…
…that we don’t play so much in our hometown Örebro. But after this month that will not be true. We’ve been invited to open up the second day of Treasurefest III which is a great hardcore/punk festival in our town. This is only one week before our previosly announced gig at Yeahfestivalen.
So i would say that we are now officially a hard working Örebroband, supporting our local scene, and that feels great!
Check out treasurefest here
Gigs are coming in a steady pace now.
We’re close to make deals with a festival in Spain and one in Ukraine for the summer. I’ll let you know when it happens. keep your eyes on the blog to get the latest!
It is a plesure to announce that Mammuth will play at three totally different venues…
I love the fac t that we are able to play at very different type of venues and festivals. This consert release shows that very clear. I really hope that you can make it to at least one of this shows.
1. Support for Dia Psalma, Trappan, Norrköping, 23 May
Dia Psalma is a legendary swedish punkband, and we are there support for a show at a students bar in Norrköping called Trappan. It is kind of a new experience for us to be a support act and we’re really looking forward to it!
Order you tickets on ticnet
2. Yeah 08 – Stadsparken, Örebro, 1 june
Yeah is a great free outdoor festival in the heart of our hometown including several localbands and some “utsocknes” friends as well (grace.will.fall. and wrestling with angels). We’ll be playing on sunday night, and since we haven’t played so much in Örebro lately we’re hoping to gather a large number of people who wants to hear the new songs for free in the breeze of the summernight
3. Gullbrannafestivalen, Outside of Halmstad 3 juli
One of those festivals that we have played so many time it feels like home to us. This years lineup contains among many others Jars of Clay, Sarah kelly and my personal favourite Per Erik Hallin.
Very different shows, but we are the same! We’re glad to have the opportunity to play at different kind of venues. It makes our show so much more interesting! See you on the road!!!
Congratulations to Josefina Larsson, the winner of our photocontest!
As you understand it was really difficult to pick a winning picture, we liked a lot of the pictures, but this stands out as a great actionshot with really cool lights and colours. A huge thank you to those who have sent in pictures and we’ll send The cardiac defect to Josefina right away (after we’ve all signed it…)
