Ufomammut stream new album 8 in full


Italian psych-doom metallers Ufomammut are releasing their eighth album (titled 8) on September 22 through Neurot, but is streaming in full exclusively with Metal Hammer.

8 is the follow-up to 2015’s Ecate album, and will be celebrated in Milan on September 22 with two special performances from the band plus an exhibition of Ufomammut’s artwork.

“8, seen as the infinite symbol, is for us representative of time tracing around an eternal line,” the band tell Metal Hammer. “More than ever, the process of writing, recording and realising 8 with the visuals of the artwork, inlay and videos, has led us to step back and observe the continuing evolution of Ufomammut in the past, present and future. Tracing our own line, and thinking about the possibilities.”

8 is available to pre-order now (opens in new tab).
