The band is knuckling down at Crono Sound Factory in Vimodrone, just north of Milan, the first time recording with soundlord Ciccio and his comrades of Femore Production. Having spent much of the past year refining exploratory jam sessions to make them fit for an intended purpose, expect more of the band's dense, organic riffing to emerge in 2017, with teasers on the way soon.
Having just wrapped up a European tour which included dates with Neurosis and fellow countrymen Grime, Ufoammut has its sights set on Australia and New Zealand, and will be traveling there in early October with the masters of doom tone, Monolord. Those dates are followed by further European shows. Catch Ufomammut live: More...

"Ecate" is the title worthy of deities and of Ufomammut's seventh studio full-length, which has been confirmed for North American release March 31st via Neurot Recordings. The label comments:
"The Italian power trio, known for incredibly heavy capabilities and psychedelic prowess, has as many discernible similarities as they do differences to their formative roots. Defying classification of simply a 'doom act,' Ufomammut charges their sludgy output with inimitable energy and wayfaring ambition through a tight knit musical understanding which flows telepathically between members, Poia, Urlo, and Vita.
"On their latest album, Ufomammut takes a confident step forward with their craft, orchestrating atmospheric processions that take the six songs on the album to places as-of-yet uncharted, the only guide being that of Ecate (Hecate in English), the three-sided goddess who moves between the realms of the living, the dead, and the gods. Traditionally associated with matters of the liminal, as statues of her can be found at crossroads and city walls, where she would be believed to either bless or curse travelers, she represents the link between the past, the present and the future in a way which resonates true with Ufomammut and with the name of the band, too."

The record's title, release date, and much more will be unveiled at the dawn of 2015, and mass album and tour updates will ensue through the rest of the year.

For nearly two years, Ufomammut has been working on this special video project. A mini-documentary sampled from "XV" is playing below. More...

Check it out below. The following press release was also issued:
"Since 2013, Ufomammut has been working on a special video project documenting their incredibly vibrant discography and unbeatable live delivery, now set for release as XV.
"As the band's visual elements are of of equal importance as their music, with virtually every album created with a video counterpart specifically fitted for said release and their corresponding live performances of the tunes. The DVD features over three hours of footage -- including Magickal Mastery Live, a twelve-song live act -- interviews, outtakes, and extras, all documenting these first fifteen years of the band.

The Italian sorcerers of supernatural and obliterating doom from Ufomammut have been very busy behind the scenes following the release of their "Oro" collection on Neurot Recordings.
Since 2013, Ufomammut has been working on a video project which will be released on DVD via the band's Supernatural Cat Records this October. The DVD features over three hours of live footage -- including Magickal Mastery Live, a 12 song live act -- interviews, outtakes, and extras all documenting first fifteen years of the band. Titled "XV," this audiovisual experience will also be available as a special wooden 8GB USB drive.
On the subject of reaching this milestone, the band commented: "Oro was a particularly ambitious album for us, and the Magickal Mastery Tour was a great chance to revisit all of our favorite songs in front of really great crowds. When we took some time to reflect on what we had accomplished we knew that the best ways to celebrate our first fifteen years, was a DVD release, something for our fans to contribute towards and to treasure. We're excited about what the next fifteen years has in store..." More...

Celebrating a fifteenth year permeating the planet with beautifully destructive doom metal, Italian trio Ufomammut is finalizing months of work on a massive DVD release documenting these years.
But more than simply a document to Ufomammut's works and accomplishments over the past decade and a half, this special video release is meant to directly reach out to the band's diehard fanbase, as the members want their widespread worldwide family involved in the celebration, commenting:
"We're working at a DVD for our 15 years as a band. Since the beginning we've been strongly grateful to all of you for following and supporting us during these years in our sonic adventure. So, we'd be totally honored if you could send us a short video clip (ten seconds maximum) about 'You and Ufomammut.' You can do whatever you want, say whatever you want; just tell us why you're doing it, what you think/feel about Ufomammut in the way you prefer."

This autumn, Ufomammut will head out on the Magickal Mastery Tour, a journey through fifteen years of music, performing songs from "Godlike Snake" through "ORO" in a new light, as thanksgiving to audiences worldwide for their support and devotion.
In a collective statement Ufomammut commented: "We are very excited to come out and play material from across our album catalog. Whereas the recent focus has been on ORO, an album which we are most proud of, we are looking forward to playing older material also, as it's been a while! This marks the last tour we shall do for a period, whilst we concentrate on writing a new album."

After months of buildup, the closing chapter in the two-part ORO album series from Italian supernatural sludge sorcerers Ufomammut is finally available via Neurot Recordings. "ORO: Opus Alter" follows its predecessor "ORO: Opus Primum" released in April, the double-album set conceived and constructed together and meant to be played back-to-back as one entity.
As with "Opus Primum," over the past few weeks the first four tracks from "ORO: Opus Alter" have been released one at a time, depicting each song through sight as well as sound in the Ufomammut tradition.
In commemoration of the album’s release, with both pieces of ORO now available to fans worldwide, today the video for the final track “Deityrant” has been released. Check out the clip below, or watch the previously posted "Sulphurdew" video over at this location. More...
The release of the second and final installment of Ufomammut’s "Oro" album series, "Oro: Opus Alter," is on the horizon, with a North American street date of September 18th via Neurot Recordings. In preparation for its release, today “Sulphurdew,” the third of the five tracks contained on the album has been released.
The more than twelve-minute-long visual depiction of the crushing “Sulphurdew” is viewable first via The Obelisk. Check out the clip right here or in the player below.

The second installment of Ufomammut's two-part ORO album series -- "ORO: Opus Alter" -- has been previously confirmed for North American release on September 18th via Neurot Recordings, and today more details on this gargantuan LP have arrived. Today the full track listing for this new chapter has been released, as well as the cover art brought to you once again by the Malleus Art Collective.
Additionally the band has continued the tradition of visually presenting each track from the ORO series for fans, and today has unveiled the album's second hymn, "Luxon" in full video style. Check out the song below, and the full track listing is:
The following press release was also issued about the album:
"As with all previous Ufomammut albums, the concepts behind ORO are expansive and multi-faceted, mutating the Italian palindrome which translates to 'gold' with the Latin translation of 'I prey.' ORO explores the concept of knowledge and its power; the magical stream controlled by the human mind to gain control of every single particle of the world surrounding us. ORO is the alchemical process to transform the human fears into pure essence; into Gold. Although ORO's two chapters will be released months apart from each other, they must be considered as a single track in which the musical themes and the sounds appear and reappear, mutate and evolve, progressively culminating in the crushing final movement. ORO is an alchemic laboratory in which substances are flowing, dividing and blending themselves in ten increments from the alembics and stills, culminating into the creation of Gold. More...
Ufomammut, Italian sorcerers of supernatural and obliterating doom, return with the second part of ORO – "Opus Alter," following five months after "Opus Primum" to complete the entire new album and give ORO its final shape. The record will be released on September 17th via Neurot Recordings.
Check out "Opus Alter" below, or find the previously posted "Opus Primum" at this location.
The band's upcoming tour dates are as follows: More...
