Ufomammut, Italian sorcerers of supernatural and obliterating doom, have completed their sixth full-length, and first as part of the Neurot Recordings family. This is the mammoth follow-up to their 2010 full-length Eve, the band’s most devastating piece of magic to date... until now. Oro is divided into ten massive movements, which are to be delivered in two separate pieces over the coming year—the first chapter, Opus Primum, arrives in April, and the second, Opus Alter, in September. This is the third project Ufomammut recorded with Lorenzo Stecconi. The band is also in the process of crafting a full video / visual version which will accompany the audio. As with all previous Ufomammut albums, the concepts behind Oro are expansive and multi-faceted, mutating the Italian palindrome which translates to “gold” with the Latin translation of “I prey.” Oro explores the concept of knowledge and its power; the magical stream controlled by the human mind to gain control of every single particle of the world surrounding us. Oro is the alchemical process to transform the human fears into pure essence—into gold. Although Oro’s two chapters will be released months apart from each other, they must be considered as a single track in which the musical themes and the sounds appear and reappear, mutate and evolve, progressively culminating in the crushing final movement. Oro is an alchemic laboratory in which substances are flowing, dividing and blending themselves in ten increments from the alembics and stills, culminating into the creation of gold.
