May as well kick off 2018 with a clean slate. LA prog metal band Mammoth have officially changed their name to Thrailkill.
Group mastermind Wes Thrailkill told us that the name change was necessary to avoid confusion with other artists using a similar moniker.
A wise decision as things have been heating up for the trio. The band recently completed a national tour supporting Haken on their 10th anniversary — while out promoting their effort Progenies, a compilation of material from 2012-2016.
Now we’ve been told that album #6 is on the way for Thrailkill. It’ll follow up the band’s 2016 record Deviations, which was successfully funded by a Kickstarter campaign.
Later this month the band will be playing two shows during the week of NAMM. On January 27th they’ll be taking the stage in Anaheim, CA at Chain Reaction, and on February 3rd in Studio City, CA at The Fox and the Hounds. Joining them on both shows will be An Endless Sporadic.
