The new studio offering from atmospheric, psychedelic sludge doomers UFOMAMMUT is now upon us.
Riff Relevant is pleased to present you “8” streaming today in its entirety for your listening enjoyment (or perhaps discomfort, whichever). The band themselves, bassist, keyboardist, vocalist Urlo, guitarist and keyboardist Poia, and drummer Vita offered the following commentary about 8 and its symbolism saying:
“8, seen as the infinity symbol, is for us representative of time tracing around an eternal line. More than ever, the process of writing, recording and realizing 8 with the visuals of the artwork, inlay and videos, has led us to step back and observe the continuing evolution of UFOMAMMUT in the past, present and future. Tracing our own line, and thinking about the possibilities.“
Deep stuff, huh? If you know anything about UFOMAMMUT, then you know such a surmising falls right into line with the band’s organic history. Just listen to the new record below via the Soundcloud embed and you will understand that this band exists on a higher plane of consciousness than most.
U.S. pre-orders can be placed via Neurot Recordings HERE.
