Ufomammut is a power trio formed in 1999 in Italy by Poia, Urlo and Vita, worldwide recognized as the creator of a unique brand of psychedelic sludge.
With long songs, droning vocals and massive effects the band combines a monumental riffing attitude with the psychedelia of the more visionary Pink Floyd.
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, “Idolum”, the fourth album, brought the band to an higher level.
In 2010 the band created EVE, comprised of one 45-minute atmospheric track, divided into five distinct movements, the fifth album 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, it's an important chapter 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, while still formulating a forward-thinking approach to the release.
Eve has been praised by fans and press worldwide as one of the best records of 2010.
In ten years the band has played several times around Europe reaching the US West Coast in 2009.
Ufomammut has performed at international music festivals like Roadburn, Hellfest, Asymmetry, Stoned from the Underground, Ieper fest and has shared the stage with bands such as NEUROSIS, DOWN, BARONESS, AMEN RA, MOTORPSYCHO, SONS OF OTIS and many more.
Ufomammut’s live show is supported by the internationally acclaimed graphic and video art of Malleus, a rock artists’ collective of which Poia and Urlo are also in, who conjure the entirety of Ufomammut’s visual impact.
