Uaral ‘Lamentos A Poema Muerto’ CD 2007

8th May 2012 at 12:59 pm

Uaral

The act of mixing genres, once regarded as blasphemy, has become really common nowadays. Two styles of music used particularly often in such a fusion of different worlds are folk and metal. One could describe Uaral (to my knowledge pronounced as oo-areál) as a…

Uboa ‘Jouissance’ DD 2013

3rd January 2014 at 9:49 am

Uboa

It took me some time to decide what to do about this record. I couldn’t review it straight away because I simply didn’t know what to make of it. Hopefully all will become clear: Firstly, the cover of the record is a colour-drained monochrome…

Ufomammut ‘Ecate’ CD/LP/DD 2015

30th July 2015 at 6:58 pm

Ufomammut

As the sun returned to our isles and I sat in my back garden, with blue skies overhead, the sun’s warmth on my face and the sounds of nature all around me, I should have been perfectly primed to soak in Italian doom trio…

Ufomammut ‘Eve’ CD/LP 2010

16th August 2010 at 8:55 am

Ufomammut

Low and heavy riffs repeated to meltdown and mad electronic space noises – a sure-fire recipe for sustained cranial orgasm. There is truly nothing out there in music land like this fabled Italian ensemble – Ufomammut are a heady sonic treasure that demand to…

Ufomammut ‘Idolum’ CD/LP 2008

31st August 2008 at 8:53 am

Ufomammut

Acid rock for the sludge generation. Yes, it was with an almost sexual joy that I stylishly flipped the disc into the player and hit the play button. If you didn’t know by now pop-fuckers, Ufomammut are an Italian psychedelic power trio that create…

Ufomammut ‘Oro: Opus Alter’ CD/LP 2012

27th September 2012 at 8:35 am

Ufomammut

Previously on the Oro Opus series… Italian psyche-drone-doom-sludge shit-kickers Ufomammut battle through the galaxy upon a haze of steel-tinged fairy dust, warding off true evil with a raft of devastating riffs and heightened cosmic enchantment. A five-note motif guides us through caverns, gorges and…

Ufomammut ‘Oro: Opus Primum’ CD/LP 2012

27th April 2012 at 8:36 am

Ufomammut

“It’s a long way to the top, if you want to rock and roll” as the late great Bon Scott once said, and once you truly do get to the top, you have to work exponentially harder to keep yourself there. Ufomammut will be…

Ultraphallus ‘Sowberry Hagan’ CD 2011

7th March 2011 at 8:58 am

Ultraphallus. Apparently named in homage to Michael Jackson’s father, Joe, these twisted Belgians are swimming in some seriously murky waters. Mixing up thick ‘n’ soupy Am-Rep-style noiserock, oddball Racebannon/Daughters-esque artcore thrust and plain ol’ fucked-up DIRGE, these sickos fit right in alongside the other…

Ulver ‘ATGCLVLSSCAP’ CD/LP/DD 2016

8th February 2016 at 7:11 pm

Ulver

Ulver returns triumphantly with another masterpiece, at least that’s my modest opinion after listening to ATGCLVLSSCAP. Though it has been two years since the release of its predecessor, the album has been in the works since 2014 in a unique way, like you know…

Un ‘The Tomb Of All Things’ CD/DD 2015

23rd January 2016 at 5:21 pm

Un

There’s something rotten in the state of doom. In a scene mired with copycat bands, it now takes some serious raw talent to stand out. Thankfully, Seattle’s Un – featuring the bassist of world-beaters Samothrace – set about doing just that on their debut…
