Sounds | Mammoth WVH, Don't Back Down
Egenlijk vind ik vooral het begin van de video best cool én lijkt me Wolf een best sympathieke dude. De muziek is gewoon melodieuze (radiovriendelijke) rock met net voldoende power om aanvaardbaar te zijn, niets meer en niets minder. Gesneden koek voor de Amerikaanse stations, voor stadions en festivals. Nog dit: Wolfgang speelt niet enkel op deze song elk instrument zelf, maar doet dat op het hele album. Mammoth WVH verschijnt op 11 juni via EX1 Records.
First impressions last a lifetime. Wolfgang Van Halen has prepared a lifetime to make his first impression with his solo band Mammoth WVH. The songwriter, vocalist, and multi-instrumentalist worked tirelessly on material that would become his debut album. Playing every instrument and singing each and every note, his music presents a personal and powerful perspective, balancing memorable hooks and tight technicality. As many times as audiences have experienced his talent alongside the likes of Tremonti, Clint Lowery, and of course, Van Halen, Wolfgang prepares to step into the spotlight with his own brand - Mammoth WVH - for the very first time now.
“The name Mammoth is really special to me.” says Wolf. “Not only was it the name of Van Halen before it became Van Halen, but my father was also the lead singer. Ever since my dad told me this, I always thought that when I grew up, I’d call my own band Mammoth, because I loved the name so much. I’m so thankful that my father was able to listen to, and enjoy the music I made. Nothing made me happier than seeing how proud he was that I was continuing the family legacy.”
