UFOMAMMUT

 UFOMAMMUT is a power trio formed in 1999 in Italy by Poia, Urlo and Vita, worldwide recognized as the creator of a unique brand of psychedelic sludge. With long songs, droning vocals and massive effects the band combines a monumental riffing attitude with the psychedelia of the more visionary Pink Floyd. UFOMAMMUT’s status as one of the most potent, powerful and artistic contemporary doom artists in existence, continues to captivate the masses, and the band’s worldwide grasp grows wider with each release.

Since the beginning, UFOMAMMUT has always been in search of its own sonic way : developing from a primordial acid album like “Godlike Snake”, the band focused on a more mature and evil sound with the second album “Snailking”. The third album “Lucifer songs”, opened new and unexpected doors, and the flaming spatial voyage which made “Snailking” one of the records of the year in 2004 in many specialist magazines and webzines, remained as their core sound, evolving alongside new soundscapes. With monolithic and repetitive riffs submerged by a psychedelic and magmatic sound, came out “Idolum” in 2008, the utterly devastating “Eve” in 2010, and their latest work “Oro” in 2012, delivered in two separate pieces : the first chapter, Opus Primum, in April, and the second, Opus Alter, in September.

UFOMAMMUT’s live show is supported by the internationally acclaimed video and graphic art of Malleus, a rock artists’ collective who conjure the entirety of UFOMAMMUT’s visual impact. With continual appearances at Roadburn and other notable European fests under their belt, intermittent regional European touring, the band was set on more widespread actions in 2014, to celebrate with all of you its 15th anniversary! A new album titled “Ecate” was released in March 2015 via Neurot Recordings, and followed by European AND North American Tours!

They released their 8th album (a masterpiece of psychedelic, groove-laden, sprawling metal titled “8”) on September 22nd via Neurot Recordings / Supernatural Cat.

8 is the Ufomammut’s 8th album, comprised of 8 tracks that flow into each other without interruption.
This flow can also be seen when you tip 8 horizontally, thus it morphs into the leniscate from algebraic geometry – ∞ – a plane curve that meets at central point – or more commonly known as the infinity symbol. A continuous stream of movement reflective of the uninterrupted nature of the album but also the continued togetherness of the essential elements of the band – Urlo, Poia and Vita – since the beginning of the band’s history in 1999. ∞ tipped vertically sees us return to the number 8.
It must be stressed there is no singular pronunciation of the title, 8 is to be spoken in every language e.g. “eight” in Engish, “otto” in Italian, “acht” in German, huit in french and so on.
8 is a continuous flux of music, a singular entity, which can be defined in micro measurements by its 8 satellite songs.
Each track expands upon the preceding song, unfolding into an exceedingly dense and malevolent journey, resulting in this being Ufomammut’s most extreme venture yet, with no permittance for breathing space in the 48 minutes.
UFOMAMMUT’s status as one of the most potent, powerful and artistic contemporary doom artists in existence continues to captivate the masses, and the band’s worldwide grasp grows wider with each release.
Ufomammut’s live show is supported by the internationally acclaimed video and graphic art of Malleus, a rock artists’ collective of which Poia and Urlo form a part, who conjure the entirety of Ufomammut’s visual impact.
