Man Made Mountains will release their self-titled debut album in the U.S. on March 24th on Reversed Records.
Genre jumping is nothing new and Man Made Mountains shows their imagination with their new album. The band blends heavy riffs, crunchy vocal, dialogue samples all the while layering keyboards and ambient noise that will grasp your imagination as each song enters to cortex of your mind.
Man Made Mountains, like many bands from Canada, have humble rural roots. Hailing from the remote west coast island of Quadra, a community with a population comprised of mostly, loggers, fishermen and draft-dodgers. The four members: Christian Carmen (Vocals/guitar/synth/samples), Lawrence Butler (Drums), Adrien Doering (Guitar) and Brynne Ewart-Armstrong (Bass/vocals), formed in 2004 following the disbanding of a group with fellow Quadrite, Ryan Guldemond (Mother Mother, Last Gang Rec) and were drawn to the urban metropolis of Vancouver, B.C. where they spent their first years there trying different formulas and different names.
The self titled album gives its listeners a full spread of MMM’s musical pantheon. Heavy in nature, they dip in and out of the sound that might typically be labeled “heavy metal”, but have much more to offer than just fist-pounding anthems. With thundering distorted pulses morphing into dreamy lulls, Man Made Mountains’ sound is not unlike a mountain range itself.
