From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

4 stars Ufomammut is a space doom metal group that walks on similar paths with groups like Yob, Sleep or Middian. "Idolum" is a representative gathering of hypnotizing, heavy instrumental pieces with a strong psychedelic feeling and passages that gradually develop and form in a repetitive manner. Low tuned guitars and basses embelished with keyboards and other soundscape-creating electronic effects , mid and slow tempos, sung atmospheric parts with no actual lyrics and a thick, solid sound that flows like lava. What we have here is not a record for every progressive rock ear though. I guess that someone has to be somehow familiar with the doom or stoner metal sound or, at least, to be in the mood of listening to a music that is moving on in chant-like heavy and slow repetitions. No solos, no technique demonstrations, no significant rhythm changes or odd beats. A kind of music that someone would pick as background for a documentary on deserts, volcanos or Saturn's surface.
