Californian psychedelic sludge mavericks MOUNTAIN TAMER take it slow and low with their filthy new single “Scorched Earth” today! Their new album ‘Psychosis Ritual’ will be released on September 25th through HEAVY PSYCH SOUNDS.
Following their highly acclaimed 2018’s ‘Godfortune // Dark Matters’ and support shows for Fatso Jetson, Weedeater and Dead Meadow, MOUNTAIN TAMER quickly took the West Coast underground heavy scene by storm. Their upcoming new album ‘Psychosis Ritual’ is the sum of the trio’s first decade of exploration into the psychedelic arts, taking us on a journey through the occult rhythms and tones of worlds forgotten. Each track is a new chapter of Mountain Tamer riffing their way into uncharted territory. For this ritual, you are the sacrifice…
MOUNTAIN TAMER takes the expansive vision of pure psychedelia and pares it down through the brooding and focused lens of doom and stoner rock. Guitarist/vocalist Andrew Hall, drummer Casey Garcia and bassist Dave Teget, formed their signature fusion of heavy psych rock in 2011 just outside of San Francisco. Now based in Los Angeles, MOUNTAIN TAMER’s cult following is built on their DIY ethics, inimitable songwriting, and in your face live performances. After self-releasing several demos, the band released their s/t debut album in 2016 on Argonauta Records. The band toured heavily following the release, playing with notable acts along the way such as Fatso Jetson, Weedeater and Dead Meadow.
In 2018, MOUNTAIN TAMER teamed with Magnetic Eye and Nasoni Records to release their sophomore album, Godfortune // Dark Matters to critical acclaim for its unique approach and genre bending aesthetics. The band rode this success to a full US tour and appearances at SXSW in 2019. This Fall will see them to release their strongest and most heavy psych album to date, Psychosis Ritual, which without a doubt will end on several Best of 2020 lists.
