Athens’ Acid Mammoth don’t joke around when it comes to bringing the filthiest and grooviest doom metal to your speakers. Their new album Under Acid Hoof, out January 24 via heavy Pysch Sounds offers a tar-thick slab of intoxicating, Satan-friendly riffs seasoned with Chris Babalis Jr.’s haunting vocals.

An album made to be played at maximum volume with a reefer in hand, Under Acid Hoof is their second full-length; it was recorded in 2019 and mixed and mastered by Dionysis Dimitrakos of Descent Studios. Drums were recorded in Dope of Sound Studios in Athens. It’s a direct continuation of the band’s self-titled debut, but darker, heavier, and fuzzier.
The father and son duo on guitars offer a horde of Iommi-style, fuzz-laden riffs supported by wicked bass lines and relentless pummeling. Artwork was designed by Branca Studio.

“Everything about this new record excites us,” the band says Chris. “Under Acid Hoof without a doubt surpasses its predecessor in every way from a creative standpoint as well as production-wise, and we are really proud of the final product. We are also very excited and honored to be a part of the great Heavy Psych Sounds Records roster; it’s a dream come true. The response to the album up until now has been really positive, and we are grateful to all those who have supported us so far.”
