Ufomammut are an Italian doom metal power trio formed in 1999. They are best known for a sound characterized by lengthy songs centered on deeply downtuned hypnotic riffs coupled with minimal droning vocals and the use of sound effects and synths, described by the band as a "unique brand of psychedelic sludge". While mainly being signed to Italian label Supernatural Cat it would be releases appearing on The Music Cartel and Neurot Recordings that would expose the band to a worldwide audience.
Complimenting the band's massive wall of sound is their visuals, both in video and artwork. The members of Ufomammut (Urlo and Poia being key members) also conceive a critically acclaimed artistic collective under the name of Malleus (or Malleus Rock Art Collective), dealing in hand-drawings, silk screenings, graphic art and visual media to scratch the surface. Malleus also have a music label called Supernatural Cat, formed in 2005.
Since Ufomammut's formation they've released eight full length albums and conducted numerous tours including Europe, Australia and the United States.
The band's name stems from a combination of two words: UFO (Unidentified Flying Object) and MAMMUT (Italian word for "Mammoth"). The entire word "UFOMAMMUT" should be pronounced in the italian way and it sounds something like "oofomammoot".
