UFOMAMMUT, the Italian power trio known for its almighty heavy capabilities and psychedelic prowess, has as many discernible similarities as they do differences to their formative roots. Never pandering to the easy classification of doom, the band charges sludgy output with inimitable energy and wild, wayfaring ambition, which is matched by the tight-knit musical understanding that flows telepathically between the three members, Poia, Urlo, and Vita. On their latest album, UFOMAMMUT takes a confident step forward with their craft, orchestrating atmospheric processions that take the six songs on the album to places as of yet uncharted, the only guide being that of Ecate (Hecate in English), the three-sided goddess who moves between the realms of the living, the dead, and the gods. Traditionally associated with matters of the liminal (statues of her can be found at crossroads and city walls, where she would be believed to either bless or curse travelers), she represents the link between the past, the present, and the future in a way that resonates true with UFOMAMMUT, and with the name of the band too.
