Supernatural Cat are relaunching some of their back-catalogue available at some great record stores and mail-order sites. Read on for more info about each available release…
UFOMAMMUT – Lucifer Songs
After amazing both public and critics with two seminal albums and live acts all around Europe which manage to combine the violence of Neurosis with the psychedelia of the more visionary Pink Floyd, Ufomammut are back in 2006 with a new record which opens in some ways unexpected paths. “Lucifer Songs” is the result of a mature and well knit band willing to experiment while maintaining its dna.
The flaming spatial ridings, which made their second full lenght “Snailking” a classic, remain as an indelible brand, but alongside we find development of new soundscapes made up of sinister atmospheres and gloomy sounds of vintage electronics. Lucifer Songs is a powerful wall of sound while at the same time untrinsically dreaming, it’s a record able to hypnotize and spellbind the listener with obsessive dilatations approaching drone music.
SUPERNATURALS – Record One
SUPERNATURALS “Record One” is an improvised session between the kings of deep noise Ufomammut and the amazing ambient postcorers Lent0. A super hypnotic and telluric monster session in which the bands play together around repetitive atmospheres broken by fragile openings.
Four guitars, a bass, synth, vocals and drums create a monolithic album, prelude to “Earthen” of Lento and sequel of Lucifer Songs by Ufomammut.
UFOMAMMUT – Idolum
First out in 2008, Idolum is a the 4th album of Ufomammut and it’s a new chapter in the sonic history of the band, presenting a sensible evolution in the sound and in the structure of the songs: dark atmospheres, simple and mastodontic song frameworks, a different idea of psichedelic rock. Idolum is a latin word meaning “ghost” and “idea” at the same time, representing the massive but hidden presence as the main concepts of the album.
Rose kemp astonishing voice will be guest in“Ammonia” while Lorenzer of Lento has provided powerful sonic waves on “elephantom” with his six strings
MORKOBOT – Morto
Morto is the final chapter of Morkobot’s first trilogy. After the self title album and Mostro, the trio (Lin, Lan, Len) has realized a single long track, creating, with two basses and drums, an incredible maze of sound. Morkobot leads the listener into the ocean of “death concept” and its value as “reborn”. The album has been deformed by Lin Lan, Len and Fabio Magistrali. This is Morkobot, all the rest is dead.
INCOMING CEREBRAL OVERDRIVE – Controverso
I.C.O. is a 5 pieces band. I.C.O. comes from Italy. I.C.O. means Incoming Cerebral Overdrive. Controverso represents a new impulse of uncontrollable nature. Constructed of eight tracks, the album evolves through a conscious musical growing, breathing with the innovative soul of Avant-garde music. Originating from the Mastodonic approach to the riff, wholly rooted in a hardcore attitude, and overall developing in something rather unique and multiform, their furious dynamics, searing vocals, 70s Italian Prog reminiscence, and psychedelic aesthetic show ICO’s will to experiment on continuously mutating song structures comes totally out in Controverso.
UFOMAMMUT – Eve
“EVE” is the fifth album of Ufomammut. Recorded at Locomotore Studio in Roma by Lorenzo Stecconi (Soundlord on Idolum), “Eve” is a 45 minutes long single track developing in 5 main movements. Passing through the massive atmospheres of Idolum and filtered by the mastodontic riffs of Snailking, “Eve” is a new step in the sonic adventure of Ufomammut, another level in the band’s sound research. The album is a homage to Eve, the first Woman on Earth, and the rebellion to her creator for bringing knowledge to Mankind.
OVO – Cor Cordium
OvO’s upcoming full-length Cor Cordium — the title translating to “heart of the hearts” — is the epitaph to the memory of idolized English Romantic poet and adventurer Percy Shelley, whose final resting place is in Roma, Italy. The diverse, avant/conceptual ten-track opus is the sixth album from OvO, the members of the duo collectively residing between Italy and Germany.
The OvO name is already well-known throughout the underground noise, doom and experimental scenes, OvO are from a realm of contaminated heavy rock, where noise elements act as breaks between the sonic. deconstructive assaults of Cor Cordium. The hi-fi recordings captured on the album, for the first time in OvO’s history utilizing any sort of overdubs, present a rational structure hidden under the apparent madness of the compositions.
