We thought our schedule was booked for the summer
but one more festival is now confirmed. It is a festival on Faeroe Islands called Fjardafestival. It is going to b ea lot of fun, just to see the Faeroe Islands is magical. This week we are preparing for the shows as in ordering new merchandise, sending out stageplots and lightschemes and things like that.
It has been a couple of weeks since our last show and now we are looking forward to jumpstart the summer with Gullbrannafestivalen. Hope to see you there!

According to the german webzine Sound7.de
The Cardiac Defect is only 14% from perfection. We agree and thanks for the review. I tried to read it but my german is far from perfect. Thanks to google translate i could manage to find out that the review is very positive. It’s also very funny to read a google translation. Or what do you think about the quote:
“This creativity is – typical Scandinavian – very stubborn, but never too bulky to the ear canal to refuse… ­čÖé

If you speak german congratulations, you can go read the review as it was written at this link: www.sound7.de
If you want a laugh check out this google translation

The numbers speaks very clear to all nations: Mammuth – “The cardiac defect ” 86%

Thank you Germany!!!
