Biography

Tortona, Italy (1999 – present)

Ufomammut is a power trio formed in 1999 in Tortona, Italy by Urlo (vocals, bass and synths), Poia (guitars and synths) and Vita (drums).
Ufomammut is worldwide recognized as the creator of a unique brand of psychedelic sludge.
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, being the result of a mature and tight-knit band willing to experiment whilst maintaining its DNA.

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 made up of sinister atmospheres and gloomy sounds of vintage electronics. With monolithic and repetitive riffs submerged by a psychedelic and magmatic sound, the following album “Idolum” brought the band to its highest level.

In 2010 the band created “Eve”, their fifth album. “Eve” – comprised of one 45-minute atmospheric track, divided into five distinct movements – acts as a living homage to the first woman on Earth, and the rebellion to her creator for bringing knowledge to Mankind. “Eve” is a new step in the sonic adventure of Ufomammut; another level in the band’s research. Rounding out at an incredibly action-packed 44:44, the album passes through the same massive atmospheres as “Idolum”, layered with mastodonic riffage as heard on the band’s “Snailking” release, yet also bears some of the apparition-like passages the band displayed so well on their “Lucifer Songs” LP

    You shouldn't probably argue while "tripping balls" because you are not making any sense. But keep it up though since it's quite funny to read.

    bobfoot: why would I? Why is this band performing in a genre closely connected with psychodelic drugs and weed then? Your criticism would be well grounded if we were talking some ordinary heavy metal band which was not meant to be listened while high, but here we are in a stoner/psychodelic genre, where the likes of YOU are a minority. And all things aside, being high lets one put 100% focus into it, thus, weak riffs and composition are greatly visible. But the likes of You, gee, I never heard those accusations before! I Think you are just stuck up ignorant that should let out some steam and chill.

    Kivul: Did you write that while "tripping balls"?

    bobfoot: implying I don't enjoy music or that I don't know anything about it because I like to trip sometimes. Maybe if you tried to listen to the music rather than "o shit this is heavy"? Your enthusiasm of being sober makes me want to mock you too.

    I'm slowly coming to the realization, that since Idolum they lost it. Yes the mixing is perfect, but musically it is really bland and simple, and vocals sounds uninspired, lazy and forced, especially when female ones starts to pop out, with those irritating noises backing it up, it sounds like the band is mocking me and making fun out of me for being stoned. It just seems wrong to me. They might be a great novelty band for people new to stoner, but there is no greater spiritual meaning to be found here when tripping balls. I will have to trip balls to pre 2008 albums and then post if they are passable or not, but now I can tell you, that their newer material is hugely overrated - there is no good musicanship to follow great mixing and production and weird noises does not makes it any good. Electric Wizard are kings because they follow up after their grim trippy production with actually good songwriting and talent, that sounds great whenever sober, stoned or on acid.
