"Supersonic Megafauna Collision" (Heavy Psych Sounds; 2024)

Reviewed by R. Scott Bolton

Acid Mammoth's "Supersonic Megafauna Collision" is another crushing, trampling slab of six tracks and almost forty minutes of sledgehammer bass, guitars and drums. It's music for people who like their music to feel like an elephant's foot to the back of the head. Turn it up loud enough and it will peel your paint, crumble your dry wall, and maybe crack the very foundation of your home (to say little of your soul).

It's a little different than other releases in the same stoner/doom genre. The vocals are lighter, more youthful, closer to Weezer than to, say, Slayer. And individual musicians get their moments to shine, especially drums and guitar; the drums with their nearly tribal throbbing and guitar leads that cut through the fog and the smoke to take their shot at electrifying your gray matter.

You know what? I dug it. Especially the trippiness of track 5, "One with the Void," that plays out like a story from Heavy Metal magazine, and the closer, the nearly twelve-minute "Tusko's Last Trip" because, well, I'm a sucker for epics.

Rating Guide:

A classic. This record will kick your ass.

Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.

So-so. You've heard better.

Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.

Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
