Today: Mammoth Grinder Take Over the MetalSucks Instagram Account!


Austin, TX terror unit Mammoth Grinder just released Cosmic Crypt, an album full of the patented mix of thrash, noise and grind for which these poser slayers have become known. Fittingly, they’re about one week into a month-long U.S. tour, the remaining dates for which you can get underneath the video for “Locust’s Nest,” below.

The celebrate the confluence of these two noteworthy events, we’ve asked the band to take over the official MetalSucks Instagram account all day today, February 10th. This is especially exciting given today’s show takes place at the Sidewinder in their native Austin. What will the band do with our Instagram account? Hopefully nothing along the likes of what those creepy gates in Gatecreeper — Mammoth Grinder’s tourmates for two days on this run — did when they took it over last year. If you didn’t see it, well, too bad!

Follow the MetalSucks Instagram to keep up and track #MammothGrinderTakeover. Follow Mammoth Grinder too while you’re at it!
