Next month they’ll head back out on a trek kicking off December 14th at the first annual Denver Black Sky Festival joining Dying Fetus, Ghoul, Exhumed, Skinless, Power Trip, Weekend Nachos, Iron Reagan and a pile of others. From there MAMMOTH GRINDER will rip through the Midwest and Gulf Coast states with nine more shows with Power Trip, also sharing the stage with Iron Reagan, Windhand and more along the way. The band is currently devising additional tour plans for early 2014.

In July, MAMMOTH GRINDER released the beast that is their earthmoving third LP, Underworlds, via 20 Buck Spin, the album literally stampeding praise forth from hot-shit mags and writers everywhere. Underworlds marks a peak at which MAMMOTH GRINDER have sharpened and perfected their sound into a seething grind/death/thrash maelstrom of intense degree; unrelenting in its concentrated raw precision and focused power, Underworlds careens violently through ten tracks with effortless versatility and the fixated songcraft expected of a band on their third record. The band commissioned the legendary Joe Petagno (Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, MotÃ¶rhead, Marduk) to deliver the album’s gritty cover artwork.
