Riff Relevant is pleased to present you ‘8‘ streaming today in its entirety for your listening enjoyment (or 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 and you will understand that this band exists on a higher plane of consciousness than most.
European vinyl pre-orders for the limited LP (500 copies) can be placed via Supernatural Cat, hand-crafted in Italy by Malleus – the rock art collective run by members of UFOMAMMUT.
