Ufomammut are a band from Italy that has been featured before in this zine and plays an occult form of psychedelic doom/sludge metal and this is a review of their 2015 album "Ecate" which will be released on March 31.
Psychedelic sounding drones start off the album along with some drum beats and a couple of minutes later a powerful sounding bass guitar is added onto the recording which slowly leads up to a very heavy sludge/doom metal sound which also mixes in with the psychedelic sounds and most of the tracks are very long and epic in length.
When vocals are added onto the recording they are in a clean singing direction while they do get more aggressive on some of the later tracks and as the album progresses a small amount of spoken word parts can be heard at times and the songs also stick to a very slow yet dark and heavy musical direction which is also very experimental and avant garde at times and there is also a brief instrumental that displays a small amount of acoustic guitars before closing the recording with another very heavy track.
Ufomammut continues the sludge/doom metal sound of previous recordings while also getting a more more psychedelic and experimental on the recording, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics are a concept album about Hecate and her links to the past, present and future.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Ufomammut and if you are a fan of this band, you should enjoy this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Chaosecret" and "Daemons". 8 out of 10.
