BackgroundEdit

Mammal formed in Melbourne, Australia in March 2006 when vocalist Ezekiel Ox (ex-Full Scale Deflection, Full Scale) joined guitarist Pete Williamson (ex-Pete Murray & the Stonemasons) who was writing songs with session bass guitarist, Nick Adams; the trio were joined by drummer, Zane Rosanoski.[3] In mid-2006, they entered the Sing Sing Studios to record their self-titled debut five-track Extended Play (EP), Mammal, which was sold independently at their live shows and on their website. By early 2007, they signed with Metropolitan Groove Merchants (MGM) which distributed their EP from March, which peaked into the top 20 of the AIR Charts.

On 2 February, they recorded a live performance at the Evelyn Hotel and released their first live album, Vol 1: The Aural Underground in August.[4] For this album, all five tracks from the EP had been recorded live with five additional tracks.
