Ufomammut, Italian sorcerers of supernatural and obliterating doom have been very busy behind the scenes following the release of their widely acclaimed ORO collection on Neurot Recordings and the Magickal Mastery Tours of 2013 and 2014, which saw them performing music from across their canon. Ufomammut are constantly pushing forward, whilst simultaneously keeping a firm eye on their history, and as they continue to celebrate 15 years, they still have lots in store.
Since 2013, Ufomammut have been slowly working on a video project which will be released on DVD via Malleus this October, after all, the visual element of the band is of equal importance to their music. The DVD features over three hours of live footage (including “Magickal Mastery Live”, a 12 song live act), interviews, and outtakes, all documenting these first 15 years of the band. Titled XV, this audiovisual experience will also be available as a special wooden 8GB usb drive.
On the subject of reaching this milestone the band commented…“ORO was a particularly ambitious album for us, and the Magickal Mastery Tour was a great chance to revisit all of our favourite songs in front of really great crowds. When we took some time to reflect on what we had accomplished we knew that the best ways to celebrate our first 15 years, was a DVD release, something for our fans to contribute towards and to treasure. We’re excited about what the next 15 years has in store…”
