Published May 16, 2016Peterborough, ON's Mokomokai recently reinforced their metal might by becoming a four-piece, just in time for an Ontario tour in support of their new EP Poison Whiptail.
Produced and mixed by Ian Blurton, the new EP draws heavily from the new wave of British heavy metal, collecting singles both rare and previously unreleased. In paying homage to their musical heroes, a cover version of Deep Purple's "Bloodsucker" is also included.
