Raising the Mammoth - Explorer's Club
August 20, 2002
Side Project

The idea of the EXPLORERS CLUB project is to have a different concept each time, explains Trent Gardner, "a way for me to write for other musicians and to kind of go outside the bounds of the stuff I do with Magellan." "Raising The Mammoth" indeed differs a lot from its predecessor "Age Of Impact", which was released in 1998. Lyrically it came out a lot darker, while musically it now reminds me of dinosaurs like ELP, GENESIS and KING CRIMSON. The album also sounds more like a group effort and there are definitely longer stretches of music, with special attention for keyboard solos. If you like your progressive rock music dark, experimental and professional at the same time, this "Raising The Mammoth" will be a hard nut to crack.
