Mama Doom Are First US Band Signed to Majestic Mountain Records

Years from now, when you’re out at the bar doing underground heavy trivia as relates to the early 2020s, you’ll know that the first American band who signed to Majestic Mountain Records was, in fact, Mama Doom from Newburgh, New York. The trio released a heavy, bluesy, East Coast attitude-y album called From Blue to Bone in the grand before-time of 2018 and according to the PR wire below they’ll have a follow-up sometime later this year. They join a bevvy of cool European acts on the imprint and bring of course something of their own to the lineup as well. With the first record being out for going on three years at this point, one has to wonder if there was some new recording that tipped the label in their favor or if it was simply on the strength of the debut alone. Either way they’re a cool find.

That first album is streaming below. Here’s word from the PR wire:

New York’s Rising Occult Rockers MAMA DOOM Sign to MAJESTIC MOUNTAIN RECORDS

The haunting hard-rock trio become the first US band signed to the Swedish label

Majestic Mountain Records – Sweden’s leading proponents of hard-hitting underground psych, rock and heavy metal – is thrilled to announce the signing of Mama Doom for the release of their new album.

Formed in Newburgh, New York in 2016, the trio join the ever-growing ranks of impressive MMR acts like Grand Cadaver, Saint Karloff and Electric Hydra and will soon release the long-awaited follow-up to their exceptional 2018 debut, From Blue to Bone (listen below).

“The moment we heard the new album we just knew we had to sign them to MMR,” explains Marco Berg. “They occupy a place on a spectrum that spans traditional blues, heavy doom and ego-death metal, and with High Priestess D. Lolli at the helm they are a serious force to be reckoned with.”

In lieu of guitars; keys and ethereal vocals drive the grooves deep into the earth in perfect union with crushing bass and drums. It’s a sound at once familiar to fans already accustomed to the doom genre, but at the same time it takes on a strangely unfamiliar tone given its unique assembly of component parts.

“We are so incredibly excited to be part of the Majestic Mountain family,” Lolli explains. “This label attracted us from the start due to the diversity and quality of bands on its roster and it’s a great honour to be the first US band signed to Majestic Mountain.”

Mama Doom’s as-yet-untitled new album will be released later this year.

Mama Doom are:
D.Lolli-vocals & keys

Smak-drums & vocals
