These bands with Biblical monikers have us taking place all types of Interweb rabbit holes. Missing a background in Christian theology (or a private relationship with Jesus) we simply let the sincere and reliable denizens of the world extensive net fill within the gaps. Which actually means a fast search and scan of the very first thing that pops up. Mammon, apparently might be interpreted because the “demon of greed” or the “seductive god of riches.” With that useful information in hand, we are able to guarantee you that Aussie nogoodniks Mammon’s Throne aren’t grasping with the Celtic Frost-y riffs and snarled, wretched vocals on new single, “Past.” Nope, they’re most beneficiant with their filthy Down Underneath doom.
The quintet—Matthew Miller (vocals), Amesh Perera (lead guitar), Johnny Chammas (rhythm guitar), Sam Talbot-Canon (bass), Nick Boschan (drums)—rumble via the melancholic, downbeat observe with venom and spite in a concise three minutes and alter. “Past” comes from Mammon’s Throne’s upcoming five-track self-titled second album.
Mammon’s Throne was mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege Mastering Studio. It’s set for launch on vinyl and digitally on April 1 through Sensible Emperor Information. Place your preorder right here.
Right here’s what the band needed to say about its new single:
“’Past’ was the primary observe written after strict COVID lockdowns in Melbourne. Having been unable to play collectively for the higher a part of two years, [we] had tons of pent up power and aggression which culminated in essentially the most straight to the purpose and bludgeoning piece of music we’ve written so far. ‘Past’ is a take-no-prisoners blackened-doom stomper chronicling the ascension of the human spirit into the cosmos after mortal demise. The music’s lyrics are a thematic sequel to the album’s opener ‘Return Us to the Stars’.”
