A Cosmic Banger – UFOMAMMUT “Zodiac” Track Premiere

Are ready for a new UFOMAMMUT track? I know I am – it’s called “Zodiac” and it’s a cosmic banger that lasts over 8 minutes. Their next record comes out on Sept. 22nd via Neurot Records and is entitled 8 (pre-order). UFOMAMMUT will be playing at other summer festivals including Resurrection Festival, Disintegrate Your Ignorance Fest, Lake On Fire Festival, and Frantic Festival in July and August, followed by their European tour with Usnea in the fall months. I can’t get enough of this new song – which makes me extra stoked that we have been given the green light to share it with you…Get your cosmic bongs out, press play below then blast the fuck OFF!

 

 

Recorded at Crono Sound Factory in Vimodrone, Milano, Italy, 8 is a major turning point in the heavy alchemic arts, with the elements of UFOMAMMUT’s recording constellation being re-aligned. Although the musicians within the collective remain unturned, a change in recording approach saw the trio playing and recording live together in the same room, even utilizing their live sound engineer Ciccio and his project Femore for production purposes, with Fabrizio San Pietro on mixing duties. Overdubs were used only for vocals, synth sounds, and minor details, with the result of the endeavor being a stricter focus on the soul, darkened groove, and overall cohesion of the music and themselves as musicians. In turn, 8 clarified to UFOMAMMUT who they are as a unit now and their new sonic path…

 

 

8 is due for release on September 22nd on vinyl and CD formats via Neurot Recordings and on a limited and regular edition vinyl via Supernatural Cat; the limited edition 7” for the “Warsheep” single is out now.EU Preorders for the limited 8 LP  can be placed HERE and US Preorders can be placed HERE

 

Laden with symbolic nuances, 8 most obviously gestures towards this being UFOMAMMUT’s eighth offering, comprised of eight stunningly immersive tracks that flow into each other without interruption. This flow can also be seen when you tip 8 horizontally, thus it morphs into the leniscate from algebraic geometry [∞], a plane curve that meets at central point, more commonly known as the infinity symbol. A continuous stream of movement reflective of the uninterrupted nature of the album but also the continued togetherness of the essential elements of the band – Urlo, Poia and Vita – since the beginning of the band’s history. ∞ tipped vertically sees us return to the number 8. It must be stressed there is no singular pronunciation of the title, 8 is to be spoken in every language; “eight” in English, “otto” in Italian, “acht” in German, and so on.

Sonically and symbolically, 8 is not only wickedly limitless in its heaviness, power, and commanding nature, but how it arrests the listener’s mind creating a wholly unbounded and impenetrable sensory experience. The album is a continuous flux of music, a singular entity, which can be defined in micro measurements by its eight satellite songs. Each track expands upon the preceding song, unfolding into an exceedingly dense, malevolent and formidable journey, resulting in this being UFOMAMMUT’s most extreme outing yet, with zero breathing room in the forty-eight-minute venture. The album’s predecessor Ecate has now been put to rest and we can be assured that 8 is an essential turning point in the infinity that is UFOMMAMUT’s sonic signature.
