Ufomammut biography
Hailing from Tortona in north-western Italy (Piedmont), UFOMAMMUT are a trio whose members go by the pseudonyms of Poia (guitar), Urlo (bass/vocals/synths) and Vita (drums). They have been together since 1999; their debut album, Godlike Snake, was released in 2000, and followed by another four albums. At the time of writing, the band are putting the final touches to their next release, which will be titled EVE.

Since their inception, UFOMAMMUT have been very active on the live circuit, both in Italy and at the international level. They have performed at a number of music festivals, and in 2009 have reached the West Coast of the US. The members of the band also belong to a critically acclaimed graphic and video art collective called Malleus, which provides the support for their live shows.

Ufomammut Experimental/Post Metal

Review by colorofmoney91
Prog Reviewer

4 stars One of sludge metal's most underrated bands release a soundtrack for giant mammoths trudging through space.

Ufomammut have been known as one of the more experimental bands in the sludge metal scene and generally add a thicker dose of psychedelic atmosphere than others, which makes them stand out quite a bit in the genre, considering that a lot of sludge bands simply churn out bland , uninspired Black Sabbath riffs album after album. This band gives its listeners deep, dreamy, heavy soundscapes to get lost in without sacrificing the strong riff-based structure that typically defines the sludge metal genre.

But, for the most part, Oro: Opus Primium is a lot more focused on psychedelic atmosphere, much like Eve was, as opposed to their heavier metalheaded albums like Snailking. This album in particular might be their slowest to date -- each song features heavy, ultra-fuzzy stoner rock riffs that move at a mammoth's crawl towards the finish line, though each track seems to almost never end, but that's mostly because this whole album runs together as a single 51-minute supreme sludgy psych epic.

Maybe not entirely retro, but a lot of the psychedelic element in this album is created by pseudo old school synthesizers and sequencers that personally remind me of music by the original Berlin school masters of the 1970s. Intermittent electronic buzzing and occasional ambient washes successfully enhance the profound drugginess of this music. As for the guitars and bass, the expected extreme fuzzy distortion is what you'll hear, but it somehow seems a bit more dense and oppressive than similar distortion utilized by most sludge metal contemporaries. The bass especially is low enough to rattle your brain if listened to on speakers loud enough or with quality headphones.

The compositions are entirely instrumental and extremely slow. This is definitely not running or exercise music at all, but rather something to lie down and relax while listening to, as to absorb the full metallic spacial impact that Ufomammut have to offer. There are no choruses, no real verses, and probably no familiar structure other than what could be considered as general post-rock structure in that each track starts off one way and slowly builds to a powerful climax or otherwise progressive endpoint. Out of all of the Ufomammut albums I've listened to, Oro: Opus Primium is probably one of their least accessible but, at the same time, deepest album. There are so many new sounds to be discovered in each slow-burning and deceptively simple movements upon each consecutive listen. I'm positive that most fans of sludge metal will probably enjoy this if they don't mind giving some serious patience to the listening process, but I'd be willing to bet that a lot of old school psychedelic rock fans might enjoy this just as much.

Eve
Ufomammut Experimental/Post Metal

Review by TheOppenheimer

5 stars A mesmerizing, absorbing and bizarre trip that converges into even ore bizarre and hypnotizing metal.

Drone, stoner, sludge, post, whatever metal you want, Ufomammut delivers a grand piece consisting of one song divided into 5 parts.

Part 1: somewhat catchy, introducing the song. 9/10 Part 2: cacophonous, haunting and trying to consume your soul. 8/10 Part 3: aggressive, what I'd call the "main theme". 10/10 Part 4: a kind of break with less wall-of-sound, totally atmospheric and mesmerizing. 10/10 Part 5: the grand finale, reprising the whole album, and entering some new cool parts. 10/10

Anyway, a true stoner/sludge/doom/post metal album, 44 minutes of pure confusion, bizarre chaos, and no-lyrics brain melting.

10/10

Review by ChrisDawid

4 stars Thrilling release, it calms and smash to pieces.

This Italian band seems to be at their best with this amazing album. Doom metal, drone, stoner rock are only a few genres which you can mention hearing the newest album "Eve".

Flowing music, increasing atmosphere so you can feel like flying in darkness. Song structure let us experience the whole album like one solid history with peaks and downs. Fly by night, Amazing flight. Metal elements are obvious but noit demonstrative, Album as whole has a lot dramatic psychodelic moments like synths or background vocals which fit absolutely good to the sound of the heavy doom guitar.

I feel its growing in me, But for the moment i give strong 4 and a half stars. Strong recommendation for fans of Post rock & metal

Ufomammut Experimental/Post Metal

Review by Astryos

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.
