Wooly Mammoth (band)
|Years active||2000 - 2009|
|Past members||Jason Stevens|
Wooly Mammoth was formed in Washington,D.C. in October 2000 by guitarist/singer/songwriter Zac Eller (formerly of Hardcore/punk bands Worlds Collide and Bluetip) They released their first EP,Ten Ton Baby in 2002. They made a name for themselves in their hometown of Washington, DC as the heaviest and loudest band in the city and received quite a bit of local and international press. Including the Washington Post's reference to their "intergenerational tough peoples music" and the UK's Metal Hammer exclaiming "At times, this Washington,D.C. trio are so inspired their music becomes the centre of the universe." They toured the mid-atlantic/midwest region extensively and made an appearance at the much lauded Emissions From The Monolith festival in Youngstown, Ohio. Back home the band recorded two songs "The Prophet" and "Mastercut And Chrisma" for their 2004 split release with The Hidden Hand. They recorded their debut full-length album,The Temporary Nature ,in 2006, a collection of their strongest material, which was produced by The Hidden Hand bassist Bruce Falkinburg. Hidden Hand guitarist Scott "Wino" Weinrich is featured on the track "Mammoth Bones."
In 2007 bassist Kyle Connolly left the band and was replaced by Jason Daniloski, formerly of Meatjack. The new lineup brought a heavier, more stripped down approach to the music and worked quite well for some time resulting a slew of progressive new material that was unfortunately never published. The band broke up in 2009.
