Endangered Doom...


Yanomamo - Maggot (2012)


On their debut EP, Australia's Yanomamo wastes little time getting to the brutal rhythms that define their gritty, lo-fi doom. Originally a cassette-only, limited-to-100 release, Maggot sounds dirtier and more raw than most first releases, but, perhaps, that is what makes the album so unique. Layering the album with a mix of drop-tune chords and southern-rock-esque riffs, Yanomamo sludge through each track, none of which sound necessarily like homemade recordings, but also don't possess so much studio mixing that the effort sounds like a too clean demo that screams eagerness for recognition.
Channeling inspiration from the occult, the band channels an equally chilling sound that sees vocalist Anthony Von Grimm's piercing shrieks ripping through an ensemble of heavy drum and bass work with fast, spastic, unrelenting guitar riffs. What makes Maggot's sound even creepier is brief samplings of tribal chants and primal drum beats, a short relief between tracks before the band suddenly jumps into the next song with ferocity.
While the album times in at just under 30 minutes across four tracks, Yanomamo have put together an impressive, focused EP that speaks to the darker, less structured side of doom. With plans to re-enter the studio later this year and continue their global domination on stages across the world, Yanomamo have nowhere to go but deeper into the black, cold realms of doom that will no doubt help create one of the year's most crushing releases. Be on the lookout for that later this year over at Von Grimm Records, which also features a lot of other great metal vinyl. Check it out! Now!

  1. I am Mariam used every single spell worker on the internet, spent untold amounts of money and discovered they are all fakes...i was the fool though; doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. In the end, I decided that I wanted a tarot reading to know what my future held for me; I contacted a woman who lives locally to me and she told me about a man named (Priests Abija); he does not advertise on the internet, has another job for income, has no set prices, makes no false promises and refuses to help anyone that cannot be helped and even helps
    for free sometimes, he will give you proof before taking money. He is a wonderful man and he was the only person who actually gave me real results. I really hope he doesn't mind me advertising his contact on the internet but I'm sure any help/ extra work will benefit him.contact him here as +447053820826 or spirituallighthealing101@live.com He travel sometimes.i cant give out his number cos he told me he don’t want to be disturbed by many people across the world..he said his email is okay and he’ will replied to any emails asap,love marriage,finance, job promotion ,lottery Voodoo,poker voodoo,golf Voodoo,Law & Court case Spells,money voodoo,weigh loss voodoo,any sicknesses voodoo,Trouble in marriage,HIV AIDS,it's all he does Hope this helps everyone that is in a desperate situation as I once was; I know how it feels to hold onto something and never have a chance to move on because of the false promises and then to feel trapped in wanting something
    more.
