UFOMAMMUT ANNOUNCE THEIR NEW ALBUM, FENICE

DUE VIA NEUROT RECORDINGS 6TH MAY

PRE ORDERS NOW LIVE 

HEAR THEIR BOLD NEW SOUND ON “PSYCHOSTASIA”

On May 6th Italian alchemists and power trio Ufomammut return with their ninth studio album, Fenice via Neurot Recordings and Supernatural Cat , their new sound is described a “more intimate, more free.”

For over 20 years, the band has combined the heaviness and majesty of dynamic riff worship with a nuanced understanding of psychedelic tradition and history in music, creating a cosmic, futuristic, and technicolor sound destined for absolute immersion. 

Fenice (meaning Phoenix in Italian) symbolically represents endless rebirth and the ability to start again after everything seems doomed. The album is the first recording with new drummer Levre, and truly marks a new chapter in Ufomammut history.

“I think we lost our spontaneity, album after album,” says Urlo. “We tried to make more complicated songs and albums, but I think at some point we just ended up repeating ourselves. With Fenice, we were ready to start from zero, we had no past anymore – so we just wanted to be reborn and rise from the ashes..” 

Whilst the band are well-known for their psychedelic travels into the far reaches of the cosmos, Fenice is a much more introspective listening experience. Fenice was conceived as a single concept track, divided in six facets of this inward-facing focus. Sonic experimentations abound in the exploration of this central theme; synths and experimental vocal effects are featured more prominently than ever before as the band push themselves ever further into the uncharted territory of their very identity. 

With the new single, Ufomammut builds this ominous landscape, continuing to add to this burning intensity before the sonic assault of tones, dynamic breakouts and bold beats all collide to provide one of the heaviest passages we will hear. This voyage ascends into this chaotic exploration captivating the audience entirely, the pathway adds this infectious unpredictable essence, the vocal notes brooding with the addictive flair of this creation. This unruly creation hits on every level.
