Had it for about five days, and keep digging it deeper and deeper. I lot of detail, a lot of brute force.

a band that never disappoints

pfunkboy (Herman G. Neuname), Monday, 31 May 2010 20:49 (5 years ago) Permalink

This band brings da sludge in the most delightful way. A spoonful helps the reality go down.

ImprovSpirit, Tuesday, 1 June 2010 15:54 (5 years ago) Permalink

Amen. If they never disappoint, does that mean I should get Godlike Snake and Lucifer Songs? I have MP3s of Snailking, love it. Even though it's OOP on CD (available on double vinyl) and sells for $130 on up, I think I found a copy at HBDirect, which normally specializes in classical. Crossing my fingers that it's not a mistake and they really do have it. If anyone has lossless files of the totally unavailable Godlike Snake, PM me and I'll trade for it!

Godlike Snake is the only one I haven't been able to find a physical copy of - I have some high quality mp3s, but it's not the same thing. If you like the other stuff definitely get Lucifer Songs, as it smokes too. The cd version I have came with a cool copy of of the video backgrounds they used on that tour - super trippy stuff like this:

and get a copy of the collaboration with Lento. It's pretty amazing.

EZ Snappin, Wednesday, 2 June 2010 17:00 (5 years ago) Permalink

I found what I was looking for here -- Godlike Snake in lossless, supposedly a 2006 remaster, and other stuff... If any of you partake in the stuff that isn't OOP, at least buy the new one!

UFOMAMMUT: Supernatural Italian Doom Unit Sign With Neurot Recordings

It comes with absolute honor to finally announce the meeting of marvelous minds, as Italian masters of thunderous psychedelic doom UFOMAMMUT sign to Neurot Recordings for their next album. Their last album, Eve, was met with great critical acclaim worldwide, and judging by the studio updates we are receiving, their next opus will be even more epic in its proportions and probably their heaviest and most cacophonous record to date.

This is what Neurot owner Steve Von Till had to say about the signing: "Welcome UFOMAMMUT to the Neurot family. UFOMAMMUT is our kind of band. These sonic brothers from Italy are heavy, psychedelic, and driven. We couldn’t be happier than to have them working with Neurot Recordings for their next full-length album. Though we have been fans of their music for a while, being able to meet them and share the stage with them on our recent trip to Europe was awesome. We formed a great and meaningful bond, which of course is the most important aspect of what we do. We admire their prolific nature as visionary musicians, as members of the Malleus art collective, and as owners of their own label, Supernatural Cat. They truly embody the same spirit of music and art that we all strive for. UFOMAMMUT is in the studio at this very moment working on their next epic."

UFOMAMMUT also commented..."Working with Neurot signals an evolutionary change for UFOMAMMUT. In the last years we've built up our own music world, doing everything by ourselves, working on our own art and recordings, creating a label, and taking care of every aspect of our projects.

We feel very excited by this change because this confirms that we did a good job, especially coming from these guys who we have always considered a great inspiration.

We're sure this Neurot and UFOMAMMUT friendship will open new perspectives and directions in our sonic adventure, because we feel we have the same vision and attitude about what music should be. In few words we feel totally honored and proud to become a part of the Neurot Family."

This news really does mark the alliance of almighty talent and we hope that you will follow this story as it unfolds in the coming weeks, more news as and when we can bring it. In the meantime, European fans can catch UFOMAMMUT on tour beginning next week and into October.

Such great news! I guess the owning slot this summer on a few European Neurosis shows really paid off. Hope this means a Stateside tour as well.

Freaking phone! "opening slot" (though no doubt they owned,too).

Heard it last night, love it. I pre-ordered it so hope to get the CD by mid-next week. Tempted to see them at Hellfest in France. They'll probably come back to the U.S. this summer/fall.

Why did you not tell me about this band? It's like discovering Boredoms all over again... New album is amazing. Is it as good as the rest of their stuff?

Scary Move 4 (dog latin), Tuesday, 1 May 2012 09:54 (3 years ago) Permalink

Thewhole catalog is wicked. I'd rank the top three

1. Eve
2. Snailking
3. Idolum

bendy, Tuesday, 1 May 2012 12:49 (3 years ago) Permalink

I love Ufomammut so much I almost was gonna travel to Europe and see them at Hellfest in France. They'll probably come to the U.S. this fall though. They'd better!

I have three of their albums in my top 100 heavy rock list - http://www.fastnbulbous.com/best-heavy-rock.htm

Once the second installment of Oro comes out this fall, I'll judge both as one double album. Technically it's all supposed to be just one song!

Fastnbulbous, Tuesday, 1 May 2012 22:22 (3 years ago) Permalink

I know, that is what makes this so crazy to me.

"Shit dude, this song is getting pretty long, I think it might fill up the whole album.

(time goes by)

"Or two whole albums."

Damn it, they played near me last week and i missed it. How good are they live?

Just like you, except hot (ShariVari), Tuesday, 1 May 2012 22:27 (3 years ago) Permalink

The reactions I read to their performances at Roadburn and Desertfest Germany were so enthusiastic I almost considered dropping $1,600 for flight, ticket and other travel expenses to see them at Hellfest on June 16th with Unsane, YOB, The Devil's Blood and Saint Vitus. Go to Hellfest site, there are buses coming from pretty much everywhere in Europe for a good price.

Fastnbulbous, Wednesday, 2 May 2012 04:13 (3 years ago) Permalink

How do you pronounce this band's name? I've been saying U.F.O.-mammut - which I think is wrong.

j., Wednesday, 2 May 2012 05:02 (3 years ago) Permalink

Right! From their site:

UFO [,ju:ef'ou] abbreviation of U(nidentified) F(lying) O(bject)
MAMMUT ['mæmmoot] italian for mammoth

The entire word "UFOMAMMUT" should be pronounced in the italian way and it sounds something like "oofomammoot"...

well, i just asked myself how it would sound if you said it in a comedy european accent

Would be really great if this Neurot contract led to some reissues of the old stuff.

Lucifer Songs and Snailking just got reissued by the band this spring.

EZ Snappin, Friday, 27 July 2012 16:46 (3 years ago) Permalink

Oh shit, they did? Had no idea! Do you know where you can get them? Looks like Aquarius only has Lucifer Songs and they aren't turning up in some of my other usual haunts.

Hah, I was just thinking I should check there, thanks.

Finally heard the new one. It's great! Sounds really different from Snailking, which is the only other one I have.

You are going to have fun filling in the blanks! All the records between Snailking and the new double ORO are good to great. If you like what they do there's not a dud in the catalog.

EZ Snappin, Monday, 29 October 2012 19:51 (3 years ago) Permalink

That's good to know. Do they tour much/ever?

these albatrosses have no fear of man (La Lechera), Monday, 29 October 2012 19:57 (3 years ago) Permalink

Yeah, they've been to the US a couple of times now.

Ned Raggett, Monday, 29 October 2012 19:59 (3 years ago) Permalink

They tour Europe all the time. They came to the States once or twice about a decade ago; at least that's what Ned and Nate tell me when they want me to be jealous. I have hopes that they might tour here again now that they have a stable record deal.


See? There's Ned, right on cue, to make me jealous.

EZ Snappin, Monday, 29 October 2012 20:00 (3 years ago) Permalink

Ha, I can't make you too jealous! While they've appeared, I've yet to catch them myself, sadly.

Ned Raggett, Monday, 29 October 2012 20:01 (3 years ago) Permalink

So I'll hold my real animosity for Nate. :)

Maybe I'll give him an earful when I see him in a few weeks.

EZ Snappin, Monday, 29 October 2012 20:02 (3 years ago) Permalink

Well regardless, if I missed them coming through here I'll be disappointed. I probably did miss it, but they won't get past me next time.

these albatrosses have no fear of man (La Lechera), Monday, 29 October 2012 20:17 (3 years ago) Permalink

I'm so glad you like them. One of my favorite bands of the past decade.

EZ Snappin, Monday, 29 October 2012 20:21 (3 years ago) Permalink

I'm digging Opus: Alter, but I didn't like Opus: Primum much. Go figure.

wronger than 100 geir posts (MacDara), Monday, 29 October 2012 22:46 (3 years ago) Permalink

It's really one piece and works best that way. Back to back strengthens Primum a lot. I do think Alter is stronger, but some of that comes from completing musical themes began on Primum.

EZ Snappin, Monday, 29 October 2012 22:53 (3 years ago) Permalink

The combination of the two is fantastic and going to reach pretty high on my year-end list. I had a long flight back from California last week which finally gave me the opportunity to play them back to back, loud. It was fantastic.

j., Tuesday, 30 October 2012 03:39 (3 years ago) Permalink

I did listen to them together in order, but I wasn't grabbed till the Alter songs. Primum for me was just too samey; Alter is more dynamic in contrast, and more interesting to my ears.

Yes, I've been literally slavering for this for a decade!


Bring $$ for swag, as they have great t-shirts, and also the 15-year retrospective XV DVD and Magickal Mastery tour live album. Many of us will of course already have the new album by then!

Full-length videos from Oro:

Their last shirt. Will almost certainly have a new Malleus Labs creation made especially for this tour.

i hope they have smaller sizes and also a shirt without a naked lady on it

groundless round (La Lechera), Friday, 20 February 2015 20:18 (9 months ago) Permalink

They do like the ladies in their art. Not always naked, but others have them licking planets and kissing skeletons. The one art print I have, Vamp, is a tribute to Theda Bara, one of their more tasteful renderings, though when the lights go off she too turns to a skeleton!
