MAMMÚT is a band from Reykjavik, Iceland consisting of three girls and two boys aged eighteen and nineteen. In 2004, three months after forming, Mammút won the annual battle of the bands (Músiktilraunir) competition in Iceland . This has been the springboard for some of the most promising bands and artists in Iceland. Since then Mammút have been playing gigs all over Iceland and Europe ,including supports with Belgian art rockers dEUS. Their music has developed in to something quite unique; distinctive vocals and angular guitars held together by brilliant melodic bass and innovative drums.
Mammút have attracted international attention from Rolling Stone journalist Dave Fricke who called them "a really good band", Music Week(UK) who named them as "a band to watch for the future", and the respected Playlouder.com website, which described the band as "Incredible". Mammút's eponymous debut album was released in Iceland in spring 2006 on Smekkleysa (BadTaste) the label founded by The Sugarcubes and one-time home to Björk and Sigur Rós.
