✚ I piemontesi UFOMAMMUT sono da oltre 15 anni uno dei nomi più importanti della psichedelia mondiale. Sono stati quasi gli unici ad aver saputo fondere alla perfezione l’acidità dei primi Pink Floyd con la pesantezza degli Sleep migliori. Hanno pubblicato da poco un nuovo disco, “8”, ancora una volta per la fondamentale Neurot Recordings di Von Till dei Neurosis, confermando il loro stato di grazia. Se non li avete mai visti live, non potete perderli assolutamente.

➧ Per ascoltarli: ufomammut.bandcamp.com

In apertura ci saranno i Borgonaut, (brutte) facce note della scena triestina con l’intenzione di unire il sound degli Sleep alle atmosfere ancora più doom di Borgo S. Sergio.


✚ Hanno scritto su “8”:

❝Mondi di rumore magnifico e allucinazioni incontrollate❞ (metalitalia.com)

❝8 is all the more an achievement for the nuance it brings to the established parameters of Ufomammut‘s sound and the ways in which the three-piece persist in redrawing their own boundaries❞ (theobelisk.net)

❝A totally different listening experience, sure, but it’s one that offers yet another opportunity to throw some quality, heavy psychedelic doom on the turntable❞ (thesludgelord.blogspot.com)

The Italian alchemic juggernaut, Ufomammut, masters of melding uncompromisingly heavy magic with psychedelic swirls, has a brand new studio recording out via Neurot Recordings: “8”.

Sonically and symbolically, “8” is not only wickedly limitless in its heaviness, powerfulness and commanding nature, but how it arrests the listener’s mind creating a wholly unbounded and impenetrable sensory experience. Laden with symbolic nuances, “8” most obviously gestures towards this being Ufomammut’s 8th offering, comprised of 8 stunningly immersive 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. ∞ 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 English, “otto” in Italian, “acht” in German and so on.

As stated, “8” is a continuous flux of music, a singular entity, which can be defined in micro measurements by its eight satellite songs. Each track expands upon the preceding song, unfolding into an exceedingly dense, malevolent and formidable journey, resulting in this being Ufomammut’s most extreme venture yet, with no permittance for breathing space in the 48 minutes. The album’s predecessor “Ecate” has now been put to rest and we can be assured that 8 is an essential turning point in the infinity that is Ufomammut’s sonic.

Recorded at Crono Sound Factory in Vimodrone, Milano (IT), “8” is a major turning point in the heavy alchemic arts, with the elements of Ufomammut’s recording constellation being realigned.
Although the musicians within Ufomammut’s collective remain unturned, a change in recording approach saw the trio playing and recording live together in the same room, even utilising their live sound engineer Ciccio and his project FEMORE for production purposes, with Fabrizio San Pietro on mixing duties. Overdubs were used only for vocals, synth sounds and small details with the result of such endeavour being a stricter focus on the soul, darkened groove and overall cohesion of the music and themselves as musicians. In turn, “8” clarified to Ufomammut who they are as a unit now and their new sonic path…
