Heralded as one of the most cerebral and psychedelic audio/visual sensory experiences in the realms of the current extreme music scene, UFOMAMMUT has worked tirelessly for twenty years since their formation in 1999. The trio – founded by Poia, Urlo, and Vita, a lineup which has remained solid to this day – was formed in a small room in the middle of nowhere in the Italian countryside province of Alessandria. Their goal was simply to survive the boredom of living in a small town, while also hoping to reach other listeners all around the globe.
As UFOMAMMUT’s slow-motion seismic grooves and mammoth, supernatural/interplanetary tones caught on within the doom, stoner, and sludge scenes around the planet, the band quickly developed an intensely loyal following in their early years. Their sonic alchemy has steadily continued to morph and expand with each album, with their productions becoming even heavier while also more psychedelic and expansive, a diverse flood of swirling effects and atmospheres permeate their conceptually-based albums.
Around this same time, UFOMAMMUT members Poia and Urlo as well as their close friend Lu also launched their art collective, Malleus Rock Art Lab, creating detailed, hand-drawn and vibrant screen-printed artwork for each album. Malleus has expanded as well through the years, developing a very wide spectrum of clients and an impressive collective resume of intense artwork through record covers, fanzines and underground magazines’ illustrations, images and logos for the web, concert posters, and more. Along with the band members, Lu’s influence and work is vital to UFOMAMMUT’s visual aspects, from albums t merchandise, live projections to official videos, and more.
The Malleus collective also launched their own label, Supernatural Cat Records, responsible for the release of such artists as MoRkObOt, Lento, Incoming Cerebral Overdrive, OvO, Zolle, and more in addition to UFOMAMMUT titles.
UFOMAMMUT signed to Neurosis’ label Neurot Recordings in 2012 where they’ve since released four albums, which has helped the band expand its grasp and reach even more new listeners.
The band has also spawned several other side projects, including the psychedelic outfit Sonic Wolves which Vita has formed and who has issued several titles in addition to performing live over the past several years. The Mon, the solo project of Urlo, was launched in 2018 with its debut LP and live actions.
