Italy's Ufomammut have returned with a new recording that continues their psychedelic mixture of stone r and doom metal from previous recordings and this is a review of their 2017 album "8" which will b em released in September by Neurot Recordings.
Atmospheric sounding drones start off the album along with some drum beats a few seconds later while guitar noises and psychedelic elements are also utilized at times and after awhile powerful sounding bass guitars start to make their presence known and a great portion of t he tracks are very long and epic in length.
When vocals are utilized they are done in a very aggressive yet melodic style along with a touch of hardcore while the music also mixes in the heaviness of sludge and doom metal with the guitar riffing and elements of post metal can also be heard at times, synths also add in a touch of ambient and all of the songs stick to a very slow musical direction.
Ufomammut creates another recording that remains true to the psychedelic mixture of stoner and doom metal from previous releases, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover mythology and esoteric themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Ufomammut and if you are a fan of this band, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Babel" "Fatum" and "Psyrcle". 8 out of 10.
