Ufomammut – “Oro: Opus Primum” – [Neurot Recordings]

surferrosa   8/13/2012   A Library, CD

Ufomammut (pronounced Oof-o-ma-moot) are a three piece from Italy delivering the doom sludge from outer space. This is a creature from some other planet populated by headbangers and stoners. The builds are slow like dripping resin, and the drops are heavy like dark matter. Sparse vocal samples and far-away moans barely break through a thick layer of fuzz, among the trance-like oscillations of an analog synth. These guys know how to work the dynamics, launching innocent, unsuspecting you from a psyched out space-trip straight into a plodding death march. Tracks segue quite seamlessly, so you could conceivably play this as one 51 minute track or anything in between. I’ll take my cannoli drenched in blood and stuffed with severed limbs, thank you very much. -Lucifer Rosa
