Editorial Reviews

A prime example of the artful rock of Sweden's Prog Champions BEARDFISH is their new album Mammoth. The style of the new album ranges from riff based hard rock to mature epics, some of which even contain swinging saxophone. Songs based on light, poppy mel

For Beardfish from Sweden, stylistic barriers are there to be torn down. Their unique sound mixes elements from a variety of genres, from prog through independent to jazz rock, classical music and metal, from sixties, seventies and eighties influences to the most contemporary and trailblazing variations. Their latest album, Destined Solitaire, is a musical adventure trip of the unusual kind, ... Read more in Amazon's Beardfish Store

Gotta love play counts!
RXCSLC
As usual the band appears to be influenced by a whole smorgasbord of progressive rock luminaries with the album being as varied as anything they have put out thus far.
Steven Sly
They can actually write really memorable songs.

I have owned this album for a month & have already listened to it 25 times! (Gotta love play counts!) The mp3 sound samples probably speak for themselves- personally, I love ALL of the songs. (EX: My wife & I went on a cruise and MAMMOTH was the 'featured album' of our trip!) MAMMOTH has ALSO re-ignited my passion for their earlier work as well. I also want to point out how much I love that BEARDFISH will create instrumentals as well- I hope they always leave room for them!

The reason to get the physical CD is for the AMAZING DVD!!! It has a terrific 'Making of MAMMOTH' documentary and also an HOUR LONG live concert!

The live songs are:
Awaken the Sleeping
The Hunter
Destined Solitaire
Until You Comply
Without You
Green Waves (from MAMMOTH!)
Roulette

The concert is so potent that I actually went out of my way to convert it to mp3 so I can enjoy it on my iPod. I would love to see the band live one day, but the DVD is the next best thing.

Now if I could only get a T-Shirt with the awesome album cover on it! Keep up the great work BEARDFISH!

Like always, I was extremely skeptical to delve into a progressive rock/heavy metal band that's *not* part of the classic period. However, my interest went up quite a bit the moment I found out Beardfish is from Sweden. For some reason, rock artists from Sweden are normally really good, so with that in mind I took the leap of faith and gave Mammoth a chance (their most recent album at the date I'm writing this review).

They can actually write really memorable songs. In fact the songwriting is quite diverse too, and this is coming from someone who's a huge fan of King Crimson, Gentle Giant, Genesis and several other classic rock/progressive rock artists. I'm a strong believer that the classic prog rock acts of the late 60's/early 70's are superior to todays generation of progressive rockers. With that said, Beardfish is *almost* on the same level of brilliance. I am TOTALLY shocked here tonight, guys. I truly wasn't expecting anything remotely THIS good.

Listen to "And the Stone Said: If I Could Speak". How many different musical instruments are included here? I swear, I hear keyboard JAMS (yes that's right- a new band actually jamming and not just repeating the same few notes over and over and pretending it's a jam!) and I hear saxophone solos occasionally as well. Actually the saxophone part of this 15-minute monster is the final piece to this amazing puzzle. The proof I was looking for that it *is* possible for progressive rock bands nowadays to make wonderful music with a little bit of patience and understanding.

The guitar playing is actually beautiful instead of obnoxious! Hooray! The vocal melodies do NOT consist of some talentless guy screaming uninteresting notes directly into the microphone with little or no concern for melody.

The in thing in prog now seems to be to try to make albums that sound like they were produced in the early 70's. It's starting to get a bit tiring, but these guys have been doing it for a while and do it better than most. The compositions are strong, the musicianship is very good, and the melodies are nice. They also do a good job of incorporating other instruments such as winds. If you are a fan of high quality retro-sounding prog, this should be right in your sweet spot. If you are looking for something that is new and fresh though, you might want to look elsewhere..

If you like King Crimson or Porcupine Tree, you will like this album. I think this the best one they've done - this album seems more full and complete. A little challenging to listen to on some songs at first listen (van der graaf generator??) but it all makes sence after a few listenings. Love the Hammond organ sound and the guest sax player is awsome. Guitar work is great, too, and in many places very original. When you watch the included DVD, these guys are a like a garage band from a small town in Sweden, warming up for other bands you haven't heard of, but they're very talented and I've enjoyed listening to them. Their other three albums here on Amazon are good, too. Highly recommended
