Mumakil



Geneva, the year is 2004, 4 guys unite their strength to create a new war machine. Jerome (Nostromo, guitars), Jeremy (Knut, bass), Thomas (Sumpfucking, vocals) and Seb (Deceit, drums) band together to play brutal and in-your-face grindcore/death-metal. In June 2004, Mumakil recorded their first songs. In November, Mumakil played their first show in Geneva, opening for Blockheads (from France) and grindcore heroes Nasum (from Örebro, Sweden).


After that, Mumakil recorded their first demo in January 2005 in Jerome's home-studio (Terrier 5) in Geneva. The year 2005 was characterized by the rise of Mumakil in the grindcore and metal scene in Europe. The 2005 demo is available on Mumakil website (for free), where it receives hundreds of downloads every month.


Later in 2005 Mumakil began their first tour in October across France (with Lost Sphere Project from Geneva as support) giving them notoriety in the French grindcore scene. From January to March 2006, Mumakil got back into Jerome's studio to record their 1st album, Customized Warfare, which is 32 tracks of straight, tight, brutal grindcore. The album was mixed by Jerome that April. Then Mumakil sent the CD in Sweden, where it mastered by Thomas Eberger at the Cutting Room. In Solna, Mumakil concluded a deal with the Greek label Blast Beat Mailmurder to re-edit the 1st demo as a 7 (the Stop Whining EP).


In the summer of 2006, Mumakil play at the Obscene Extreme Festival, in Trutnov (Czech Republic) with more than 50 grind and death-metal bands. Mumakil also played at the famous Mountains of Death Festival in Muotathal (Switzerland) in August 2006 with bands like Suffocation (USA), Wasteform (USA), Rotten Sound (Finland), or Disavowed (NL).


Mumakil released Customized Warfare as their 1st full-length on Overcome Records in October 2006. After that, they toured with Blockheads, from 19th to 28th October, in France. In 2007, Mumakil continued to tour in France & Switzerland and left to England for their very first UK Tour opening for the Carving Europe Tour with Necrophagist, Misery Index, Disrkeet, Origin, and more.


Then Mumakil signed a deal with the Canadian label Caustic Rhythm (Prodisk) in order to re-press the album and tour in Canada / USA. On 22nd June 2007, Mumakil played at HELLFEST Festival in Nantes/Clisson with other metal giants like Slayer, Megadeth, Napalm Death, Emperor, Neurosis & more. Mumakil, then got back in studio to record several new songs which appeared on 3 new splits : split with Misery Index on Ruling Class Canceled (on Power-it-up records), split with Inhume on Slimewave Series Vol. 6 (on Relapse records), split with Blockheads on Night of the Grinding Dead (Bones Brigade records). After touring in Italy and Spain in 2008, Mumakil concluded a deal with Relapse Records to release their next album, on which the band is currently working hard.
