UFOMAMMUT Completes Seventh Studio Full-Length For Spring Release Via Neurot Recordings

Italian power trio, UFOMAMMUT, is putting the final details on the band’s anticipated seventh studio full-length in order for the album to see an early Spring 2015 worldwide release, once again through Neurot Recordings. While virtually no specific details on the album are yet to be revealed to the public, the album is fully mixed, mastered and going into production now. The record’s title, release date and much more will be unveiled at the dawn of 2015, and mass album and tour updates will ensue through the rest of the year.

In October, UFOMAMMUT proudly released XV, a DVD documenting the band’s intense fifteen year lifespan to date, through their own Supernatural Cat label with support from Neurot. For nearly two years UFOMAMMUT has been working on this special video project delivered through XV’s more than three hours of footage documenting their vast discography and live accomplishments. The DVD features Magickal Mastery Live, a twelve-song live act, as well as interviews, outtakes, and extras, captured over the past decade and a half.

A mini-documentary sampled from XV is playing at THIS LOCATION, and a video
of “Zerosette” from the band’s Godlike Snake debut is playing RIGHT HERE.

CORRECTIONS HOUSE Forced To Postpone Remaining US Tour Dates

Due to vocalist Mike IX Williams’ exhaustive touring and recording schedule these past years, a doctor’s strict orders for rest, vitamins and general physical recovery has been prescribed, and it is with deep regret that CORRECTIONS HOUSE has postponed the last few remaining dates of theWriting History In Advance US tour.

Notes Williams in an official statement: “Overwork, nonstop travel, overexertion on stage and poor eating habits will eventually grind you to rubble. I need a bit of time to heal and repair my wounded body and mind.”




CORRECTIONS HOUSE released their Writing History In Advance recording, a menacing testament of sonic decay captured live in Los Angeles earlier this year. The release is available as a CD digipack via War Crime Recordings at THIS LOCATION and digitally HERE. The band’s newly recorded, as-yet-untitled sophomore offering will be released in 2015 along with a brand new round of live infiltrations to be announced next year.

CORRECTIONS HOUSE features IX Williams (EyeHateGod) alongside accomplices Scott Kelly (Neurosis), Bruce Lamont (Yakuza) Sanford Parker (Minsk) and minister of propaganda, Seward Fairbury. The collective released their Last City Zero debut via Neurot Recordings last year. Produced by Parker at Electrical Audio, Soma Studios, 60 Psycho Hum and Nodferatu’s Lair, Last City Zero is the audio end product of government conspiracies, societal ruin and psychological decay.

YOB’s Clearing The Path To Ascend Topples Year-End Lists; Band To Level Brooklyn’s Saint Vitus Bar This Weekend

Released early this Fall via Neurot Recordings, Clearing The Path To Ascend, the latest studio album from Portland’s favorite doom conjurors, YOB, has earned mass love and attention from fans and media outlets both stateside and abroad.


Recorded at Gung Ho Studio in Eugene alongside longtime YOB comrade/iconic sound wizard, Billy Barnett and mastered by Brad Boatright (Sleep, Beastmilk, Nails) at Audiosiege, Clearing The Path To Ascend is a wholly visceral listening experience that demands the tandem attention of mind, body, and soul. Rolling Stone ranked Clearing The Path To Ascend at the coveted #1 spot on their 20 Best Metal Albums Of 2014, noting “The seventh album from Oregon doom metal sky-gazers, YOB, … makes perfect bedfellows of volume and beauty, pain and transcendence,” further enthusing, “Opener ‘In Our Blood’ extends a simple riff into complex arches, tracing [vocalist Mike] Scheidt's voice as it moves from an exquisite falsetto to a death-metal bellow in the course of sixteen-minutes. And during the colossal closer ‘Marrow’ — possibly the best metal song of the year, one that uses low notes to play uplifting melodies — Scheidt sings ‘Time will fall inside the dream.’ His voice suddenly reaches out like a clarion's call, clear and telling and beautiful. It's a pronouncement from the living, a semaphore pointing into the future.” The record earned the #7 spot on Decibel’s Top 40 Albums Of 2014, the esteemed metal rag noting, “Mike Scheidt’s songwriting has never been stronger or more dynamic… a masterful return to form by an American doom powerhouse,” while Wondering Sound placed the offering at #9 among their 25 Best Metal Albums Of 2014 proclaiming, “The sound on Clearing the Path to Ascend is tactile: You can practically feel vocalist/guitarist Mike Scheidt's callused hands sliding up and down the guitar neck…This isn't a case of fixing what was broken; it's about becoming greater than they already were.” On their 2014 Best Heavy Metal Albums List,About.com lists YOB at number two, championing “Marrow” in particular, “The closing,sprawling eighteen-minute plus ‘Marrow’ takes every previously visited songwriting element on Clearing The Path To Ascend and brings it all together into beautifully melancholic combination of heaviness and melody, a fitting capstone to a gem of an album.” The record ranked in at number eleven on Stereogum’s Top 50 Albums Of 2014: “Clearing The Path To Ascend is YOB at their most frenzied (‘Nothing To Win’) as well as their gentlest (‘Marrow’), but taken as whole, its four songs feel like the seasons or the elements: powerful, eternal, wondrous, and bigger than all of us.” Added Steel For Brains, on their Best Of Heavy Music Releases Of 2014, “For all its heaviness, the album is disarmingly meditative, relying less on forcing the mood for the listener and entrusting that the human commonalities of love, loss, fear, and hope threaded throughout the music will render an altogether familiar place of comfort and strength within the listener.”

In related news, YOB will rumble the infrastructure of Brooklyn’s Saint Vitus Bar this weekend on two special sold out appearances, the first set to take place tonight with Tombs and King Destroy, the second on Saturday with Occultation and Ecstatic Vision with additional US live rituals to be announced in the weeks to come.

“…Mike Scheidt continues to drive his band YOB to new heights of epic, darkly spiritual doom without consideration for trends, self-consciousness or the whims of fickle consumers. At sixty-two minutes yet only four songs, Clearing The Path To Ascend rewards the patient while almost deliberately snubbing the ADD set… Scheidt uses art as catharsis, and that means you as listener as well if you want to take that journey with him.” – Metal Injection
