Malleus − album layout
Oro is the title for UFOMAMMUT’s 2012 work, divided into ten massive movements overall which has been delivered in two separate pieces.
The first chapter, Opus Primum, is the third album in a row the band recorded with Lorenzo Stecconi.
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 has been released months apart from each other, they must be considered as a single track in which the musical themes and the sounds show up and hide, mutating and evolving, progressively and increasingly stratifying culminating in the crushing final movement.
Oro is like 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.
