Hailing from Tartu, Estonia welcome the tripped out, psychedelic heaviness of Mang Ont. The trio has crafted one hell of a fuzzy and dense mind trip with Maa Sarv. What we have here are three healthy doom induced instrumental tracks weighing in at a whopping 46:17. Mang Ont are taking instrumental stoner doom to a new levels with touches of inspiring post stoner rock and dark psychedelic doom… what a trip. With minimal echoed and distant vocals scattered throughout, the music is extremely mesmerizing. Yes, it can be repetitive at times, but they suck you into their vortex of spiraling heaviness. This album will definitely test your woofers, so increase the volume at your own risk.  

Tracklist:
1. Buldolont 18:46
2. Luumurdja 13:20
3. Tundratuul 14:11

Standout Track(s)
”Tundratuul ” will test your love for chaotic psychedelic doom with it’s dark tribal insanity. The opening cut “Buldolont” may take the cake, coming in at just over 18 minutes this track is all consuming. The percussion is downright brooding with UFOMAMMAT inspired psychedelia. We love the breakdown at the 7:00 mark as they progress into post rock territory for a moment, than slowly bring us back to the awe inspiring doom landscape. 

Adult Beverage Pairing
Grab a hold of some Speed of Sound by Illinois Pipeworks Brewing. The 7.50% ABV New England IPA is a hazy gold color with various flavor of citrus. A great pairing with Maa Sarv.
