ZOLLE Jump On Board UFOMAMMUT’s Magickal Mastery Tour

Ufomammut - Magickal Mastery Tour 2013

As previously announced, UFOMAMMUT will excavate items from their pliocenic past, keeping their third eye pointed at the future – embarking on the ‘Magickal Mastery Tour‘, a journey through fifteen years of UFOMAMMUT music, performing under a new light songs from Godlike Snake to ORO, as thanksgiving to people for their support and devotion.

Today we are proud to announce that kings of rural metal dirge and harvesters of riffs ZOLLE are bringing their surplus produce on the road this Autumn with fellow countrymen UFOMAMMUT, and they’re sure to come out scythes swinging! With gratuitous amounts of methodic groove and grubby stoner swing which can only arise from the tight companionship of a jamming duo, ZOLLE are one of the few bands going who pack the weight necessary to roll with the conductor of this Magickal tour… They’ll be on the road with UFOMAMMUT on all dates between 25th September – 5th October inclusive.

UFOMAMMUT remarks – “We’re totally happy to share the first part of the tour with our friends at Zolle. They’ll bring some good old vibes from the countryside. Cows, thick wine and rock’n’roll!”

ZOLLE are Marcello (Lan of Morkobot) playing meaty riffs, and Stefano who beefs things up on drums and xylophone. The duo commenced work on their debut album throughout the summer of 2012, and in just two months they had the music ready to commit to tape. Self-proclaimed rednecks, they are on the loose and ready to run amok after the release of their self-titled debut album, an ode to yokel ways of living. They might not take themselves so seriously but don’t be fooled, their music is no hayseed dixie – brace yourself for a ferocious, rampant record of thunderous riffs and robust drum blasts.

Their self-titled album was recorded in September 2012 by Michelangelo Roberti at Mizkey Studio (MoRkObOt) and mastered by Giovanni Versari (zu, Morkobot, OvO, One Dimensional Man). It was almost all played live, with overdubs reduced to the bone. The drums are of considerable proportion and made of copper and the amplifier an old digital model of the ’50s which makes for a mammoth sound. Urlo from Ufomammut and Roberto Rizzo of Quasiviri/Runi add a little synth seasoning to flesh out the album also.
