This young instrumental trio of Musicians Institute students not only exhibits impressive individual chops, but an ability to play with controlled intensity as a unit. At 10 minutes, “Innate” is the band’s grand statement, a multi-part composition that straddles the line between scintillating and self-indulgent—the kind of thing that should warm the heart of any prog-rock maven—while probably requiring multiple listens to fully appreciate. Shorter songs, like the brisk, breezy “Repetition In Regression” and the scorching, spacy “Paradigm,” are easier to digest, while still providing ample space for the players to dazzle on their respective axes. There’s no question that Mammoth is capable of making inroads in the video games soundtrack arena.
