4 stars Blue Mammoth was initially a project by the Brazilian bass player Julian Quilodran (ex Octohpera). Later it became a real band and after a couple of years come to release this first self-titled album on the label Masque Records.

The band was betting on the Symphonic orchestral sound of 70's Prog but with a modern sound. The album was also composed as a 3 parts Suite, unfortunatelly, in the original album everything was divided into 14 tracks, which makes the tracklist a bit confusing.

In this album you can hear a bit of Yes influence and Andre Micheli (vocals and keyboards) has a voice that is a bit simillar to Blaze Bayley, especially on Iron Maiden's album The X- Factor (1995). Of course you would have to imagine Bayley singing Prog and not metal (hehehe).

The debut album of Blue Mammoth is an incredible piece of work and it shows us that you still can have Prog acts with originality even if drinking in the classic waters.

In time, the band is right now finishing their new album that'll have 10 tracks and two suites among them. For now you can listen and buy their first album through their Bandcamp: bluemammoth- progressiverock.bandcamp.com/album/blue-mammoth-2

Recommended!
