Following several visual glimpses into the creation of Ufomammut’s newest work, Oro: Opus Primum – the initial release in a pair of albums in the Oro series, and the band’s debut within the Neurot Recordings family and the band proudly unveil the first full track from the LP duo. Through Malleus Rock Art Labs, Ufomammut have crafted a full video/visual version of Oro which will accompany the audio the whole way through both albums, and “Empireum” opens the Opus Primum album, beginning the Oro chronicle which you can view below.
Stay tuned for further installments, as each track from both LPs in the Oro lineage are released over the coming months. Opus Primum will be released on April 9th and the second installment of Oro, Opus Alter, will see release in September. The full visual adaptation of both Opus Primum and later Opus Alter will be pressed to DVD to accompany the limited vinyl versions of each chapter, which will be hand-build by Malleus Rock Art Labs and released on the band’s own Supernatural Cat Records.
Ufomammut have also confirmed exclusive European tour dates where they will be presenting Oro for the first time to a captive audience. Italian experimental/metal outfit Incoming Cerebral Overdrive – also signed to Ufomammut’s Supernatural Cat Records – will support them on this treck who in turn will be promoting their forthcoming new album Le Stelle: A Voyage Adrift.
