Warsheep is the first extract song from the upcoming new Ufomammut's full length, coming next september.
The idea of a 7" introducing the new album is something new for the band.
It recalls the usual habit of the past, when vinyl (like today...) was the best option and labels were used to present the new albums with a single.
The record comes in a limited edition of 500 pieces, with the cover handprinted with gold iridescent and red inks on pearlescent paper by Malleus and it'll be on white matte vinyl.
A videoclip of Warsheep has been also realized and You can watch it here
Purveyors of the endlessly heavy, masters of melding uncompromisingly psychedelic magic, the Italian juggernaut known as UFOMAMMUT will release their eighth album this September 22nd, aptly titled "8", once again via Neurot Recordings.
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. 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.
8 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.
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 LP and CD formats via Neurot Recordings and on a limited and regular edition vinyl via Supernatural Cat. Preorder information, album tracks, and more will be revealed over the next several months.
UFOMAMMUT is also booking live actions across Europe preceding the new album, with many more tour dates to be announced.

MoRkObOt’s fifth full-length release, GoRgO ushers in a new era in writing for the band; one that revolves around constructing more ambitious structures driven by simpler forms and tighter structures. The flooring percussive thunder of Lon is topped with the dueling, winding intensity of bassists Lin and Lan with unrelenting intensity through the album’s entire thirty-eight-minute duration. Recorded by Giulio Ragno Favero (Zu, Teatro Degli Orrori, OvO, One Dimensional Man) at Lignum Studio in Padova, Italy, GoRgO took only three days to capture, and was cut live in a minimal amount of takes, testament to the trio’s impressive musical coherence and unity Tthe mixing process took another eight days, with no further editing being required. As with all Supernatural Cat outputs the cover for MoRkObOt’s GoRgo was designed courtesy of Malleus – a collective renowned for their intricate and surrealist art-noveau-esque visual art.
The Italian psychedelic power trio Ufomammut are currently in the process of forging their eighth LP, following their heady/heavy 2015 epic for Neurot Recordings, Ecate. The band are knuckling down at Crono Sound Factory in Vimodrone, just north of Milan, the first time recording with their soundlord Ciccio and his comrades of Femore Production. Having spent much of the past year refining their exploratory jam sessions to make them fit for purpose – expect more of their inimitable dense, organic riffing to emerge in 2017, with teasers on the way sooner.
Having just wrapped up a European tour which included dates with their friends in Neurosis and fellow countrymen Grime, Ufomammut have their sights set on Australia and New Zealand, and will be travelling there in early October with the masters of doom tone, Monolord. Those dates are followed by further European shows, which include a performance at this year’s Damnation Festival in Leeds on November 5th, alongside Electric Wizard, Enslaved, Cult of Luna, Akercocke and many more, plus a London show.

Pre order now the new Morkobot "Gorgo" album!
GoRgO, MoRkObOt's fifth full-length, was recorded from November 2015 to January 2016 by Giulio Ragno Favero (Zu, Teatro Degli Orrori, OvO, One Dimensional Man) at Lignum Studio in Padova, Italy. It ushers in a new era in writing for the band; one that revolves around constructing more ambitious structures driven by simpler forms and tighter structures.GoRgO took only three days to record, and was cut live in a minimal amount of takes, testament to the trio's impressive musical coherence and unity, and the mixing process took another eight days, with no further editing being required.
Following the recent announcement that Italian noise metal trio, MoRkObOt, will release their fifth LP, GoRgo, through Supernatural Cat this September, new info has been issued, including the cover art, and an early premiere of the video for “Kogromot,” through an exclusive premiere at Noisey.
As with all Supernatural Cat outputs the cover for MoRkObOt’s GoRgo was designed courtesy of Malleus – a collective renowned for their intricate and surrealist art-noveau-esque visual art. The idea for the artwork was spawned from the sonic of the album, with the punk undertones reminding the Malleus crew of the infamous colors used on the Sex Pistols’ Never Mind The Bollocks… cover, subsequently influencing the color palette for GoRgO. Further inspired by the album title itself – as “gorgo” translates to “vortex” — a whirlpool effect was created, leading the unknowing spectator’s eyes into the center of the pentagram. The end result is reminiscent of a dark hypnagogia, just like the psychedelic noise on the record.
Commented the MoRkObOt outfit, “The cover hit us really hard at first sight! We immediately felt like it was a great representation for the music in this album, a record that pushes our boundaries in many different directions. The contrasting, eye flashing, power colors and iconic figure melt together perfectly, direct and weird as we feel about the musical ingredients inGoRgO.”
GoRgO is set to be be released on September 16th via Supernatural Cat, the label operated by members of Ufomammut.
For twelve years now, the three messengers of MoRkObOt has been elaborating on their discography with a series of increasingly perplexing and infectious records. GoRgO is the brand new album of low-end noise rock origami from Lin (bass), Lan (bass) and Lon (drums).
MoRkObOt’s dual-bass methodology creates a debauched entanglement of corkscrew rhythms that shake off the notion of sterile technicality, rather, theirs is a fleshed out monster that stomps to a different octave. Honing in on the minutiae of their interlocking slides, slams and slippery beats, MoRkObOt creates a unique and lively psychedelia akin to being in an accelerating whirlpool of their malicious creation. Heaviness is achieved in the most refracted of manners, letting both bass pincers extend in melodic directions around the relentless, booming drumming, then snapping shut with mechanized indifference, hitting hard and fast over and over. The gurgling fountains of noise Lin and Lan conjure over the duration of GoRgo place them in the highest echelons of noise rock innovation, while Lon’s percussion is both the unstoppable force and the unmovable object.
GoRgO, MoRkObOt’s fifth full-length, was recorded from November 2015 to January 2016 by Giulio Ragno Favero (Zu, Teatro Degli Orrori, OvO, One Dimensional Man) at Lignum Studio in Padova, Italy. It ushers in a new era in writing for the band; one that revolves around constructing more ambitious structures driven by simpler forms and tighter structures. GoRgOtook only three days to record, and was cut live in a minimal amount of takes, testament to the trio’s impressive musical coherence and unity, and the mixing process took another eight days, with no further editing being required.
