NEUROSIS To Play Their First-Ever South American Shows In December




Thirty years of anticipation will come to an end this December: South American fans will finally have the opportunity to experience the live intensity of heavy music pioneers, NEUROSIS

NEUROSIS, for the first time, will bring its cathartic live experience to South America in late 2017, performing three shows in Brazil, Argentina and Chile.

NEUROSIS has produced eleven studio albums, performed on stages around the planet — each record, each song, each show and each studio experience pushing the band one step further along on a lifelong path of spirit and sonic experimentation.

For the first time in South America, local audiences will feel the trance like power of NEUROSIS’ massive riffs. These South American shows are produced by Brazilian booking agency Abraxas in partnership with Xaninho Discos, beginning in São Paulo, Brazil, on December 8 at Clash Club, followed by shows in Buenos Aires, Argentina, on December 9 at Teatro Vorterix and Santiago, Chile, December 10 at Club Blondie.

"We are honored and humbled by the opportunity to experience a new sonic adventure on a new continent," says Steve Von Till. "Finally, after all this time, we are able to come to South America and. experience first hand the legendary and passionate heavy music scene there."

Remaining ticket information for the South American shows will be announced in the coming weeks.


NEUROSIS SOUTH AMERICAN TOUR 2017

12/8/17 - CLASH CLUB (Barra Funda 969), São Paulo, Brazil [tickets]

12/9/17 - TEATRO VORTERIX (Federico Lacroze 3455), Buenos Aires, Argentina

12/10/17 - CLUB BLONDIE (Av Libertador Bernardo O'Higgins 2879), Santiago, Chile


In September 2016, NEUROSIS — on the heels of several 30th anniversary concerts in the United States and Europe — released Fires Within Fires to worldwide acclaim. The album was named one of the top five Best Metal Albums of the Year by Rolling Stone. Decibel Magazine devoted an entire issue to chronicling NEUROSIS’s history, and Terrorizer featured the band on its cover with the headline: “How One Band Changed the World.”

NEUROSIS have redefined what heavy meant and what heavy could be, all while refusing to define themselves as anything more than conduits for the music they conjure like diviners,” wrote Decibel.

”What more can be said about NEUROSIS that hasn't already been written, re-written, and re-written once again? They're giants in a field obsessed with hugeness-hugeness of riff, of amplifier, of decibel, of ambition-and are a seemingly unbreakable sonic force,” said Noisey of Fires Within Fires. “When Scott Kelly, Steve Von Till, Jason Roeder, Noah Landis, and Dave Edwardson come together (and especially when they do so under the steady hand of longstanding engineer Steve Albini) the result is the kind of tectonic earth magic that the word doom was invented to personify. Whatever it is they continue to seek, this latest offering is a massive step forward towards it.”


Fires Within Fires and all Neurosis albums + merchandise can be purchased through the Neurot Recordings store HERE


The summer of 2017 sees NEUROSIS on the road again: traveling to Europe and, in mid-summer, playing shows in Eastern Canada and along the eastern seaboard of the United States.

YOB Returns To The Stage This Weekend At Northwest Terror Fest Following Guitarist/Vocalist Mike Scheidt’s Diverticulitis Surgery, Additional Live Dates Draw Near



Cosmic doom trio YOB will make their return to the stage this week at the Northwest Terror Fest in Seattle, Washington alongside Coven, Cephalic Carnage, Wolves In The Throne Room, and so many others. The performance serves as guitarist/vocalist Mike Scheidt’s first show since undergoing emergency diverticulitis surgery earlier this year. Diverticulitis is an inflammation of the digestive tract and is often life-threatening.

Said Scheidt in a recent Facebook post to fans, “…Everything is different on my insides, and I'm learning to adjust to both healing pains and new normals. Time will tell which is which. All the same, slow and steady is my mantra. I have a feeling of gratitude that is consistent, and we’re writing so much new music with YOB that I don't know how we're going to distill it all… I wish nothing but love and health, laughs and inspiration for our shared, diverse, unique tribe. For those who have sent me messages, shared love, their time and help with my survival during these trials of mine, I remain ever thankful and count myself as beyond lucky. My ability to weather all of this and continue working is framed by these blessings. We are so looking forward to these shows...seeing friends, watching bands, and getting to share the stage. It's surreal to be able to do it again. Can't wait."

The band will also lay their purifying riff rituals upon Saint Vitus Bar in Brooklyn, New York for three sold out nights -- June 23rd, 24th, and 25th. The shows were initially scheduled for February but postponed. The following evening, the band will head south for a performance in Austin, Texas at Come And Take It Live. In August, YOB will play San Diego, California’s Brick By Brick with SubRosa followed by a Psycho Las Vegas preparty directly after the fest’s warm up pool party (this will be a separately ticketed event). Future YOB shows to be announced in the coming weeks.

Watch YOB's tour trailer HERE.

8/17/2017 Hard Rock Hotel & Casino – Las Vegas, NV w/ SubRosa [tickets]

YOB released their Clearing The Path To Ascend full-length via Neurot Records in 2014. On Clearing The Path To Ascend, YOB is as formidable as they’ve ever been, demanding the tandem attention of mind, body, and soul. Drummer Travis Foster wields his signature rhythmic furor here with bombastic precision while bassist Aaron Rieseberg coils around the sonic tide with an unforgiving churn all the while in a deadly synchronicity with Scheidt’s uncanny vocal range and its pendulous movement between the triumphant howls of a medieval madman and the earth-splitting growls of a war-battered titan. Take this opportunity to revisit this remarkable album at THIS LOCATION. YOB is love.

YOB’s Clearing The Path To Ascend is available now via Neurot Recordings HERE.



“Psychedelic rock, stoner rock, stoner metal, blues metal, ambient: all reside comfortably in YOB‘s wheelhouse, coalescing and collapsing on a path that stretches as far as the listener’s imagination.” – Pitchfork

“The seventh album from Oregon doom metal sky-gazers, YOB … makes perfect bedfellows of volume and beauty, pain and transcendence.” – Rolling Stone

“Mike Scheidt’s songwriting has never been stronger or more dynamic… a masterful return to form by an American doom powerhouse.” – Decibel

“There’s loud, and there’s transcendently loud, and this performance of ‘The Great Cessation’ is towering, the tone so thick it’s tactile.” — Terrorizer

UFOMAMMUT SHARE NEW SONG "WARSHEEP" VIA NEW VIDEO, APPEARING ON 7" SINGLE AND FEATURING ON THEIR UPCOMING ALBUM 8 (NEUROT RECORDINGS, 22ND SEPTEMBER); PLUS TOUR DATES ANNOUNCED

[still image from "Warsheep" video]

The Italian alchemic juggernaut, Ufomammut, masters of melding uncompromisingly heavy magic with psychedelic swirls, recently announced news of a brand new studio recording, 8, which will arrive on 22nd September via Neurot Recordings. 

Prior to the album's release, the trio delight fans with an early extract from the record in the form of a video for the song "Warsheep" which you can view below. The band describe their intentions of the video..."it is inspired by the lyrics of the song which in itself is a play on the words "Worship". The protagonist takes a symbolic journey from the natural human condition to the trappings of the dogmas of society, religion etc. The principle idea being that thought is blind and is caged into the illusion of being free." Adding to the video's eerie atmosphere, the setting is in an abandoned villa in Italy, and the surrounding woodland.








In the spirit of record collecting rituals, and to offer something special to fans ahead of the full album release, Ufomammut are also sharing "Warsheep" as a limited edition 7". Available in a small run of 500 pieces, and with the cover handprinted with gold iridescent and red inks on pearlescent paper by Malleus, the record will be released via Supernatural Cat on 15th June, and will be available for pre-order via the label's website, and via Neurot stores too. Check out newly announced live shows below...

Read on for more information about 8...

Sonically and symbolically, 8 is not only wickedly limitless in its heaviness, powerfulness and commanding nature, but how it arrests the listener’s mind creating a wholly unbounded and impenetrable sensory experience. Laden with symbolic nuances, 8 most obviously gestures towards this being Ufomammut’s 8th offering, comprised of 8 stunningly immersive tracks that flow into each other without interruption. This flow can also be seen when you tip 8 horizontally, thus it morphs into the leniscate from algebraic geometry - ∞ - a plane curve that meets at central point - or more commonly known as the infinity symbol. A continuous stream of movement reflective of the uninterrupted nature of the album but also the continued togetherness of the essential elements of the band – Urlo, Poia and Vita – since the beginning of the band’s history. ∞ tipped vertically sees us return to the number 8. It must be stressed there is no singular pronunciation of the title, 8 is to be spoken in every language e.g. “eight” in English, “otto” in Italian, “acht” in German and so on.
As stated, 8 is a continuous flux of music, a singular entity, which can be defined in micro measurements by its eight satellite songs. Each track expands upon the preceding song, unfolding into an exceedingly dense, malevolent and formidable journey, resulting in this being Ufomammut’s most extreme venture yet, with no permittance for breathing space in the 48 minutes. The album’s predecessor Ecate has now been put to rest and we can be assured that 8 is an essential turning point in the infinity that is Ufommamut’s sonic.




Recorded at Crono Sound Factory in Vimodrone, Milano (IT), 8 is a major turning point in the heavy alchemic arts, with the elements of Ufomammut’s recording constellation being re-aligned. Although the musicians within Ufomammut’s collective remain unturned, a change in recording approach saw the trio playing and recording live together in the same room, even utilising their live sound engineer Ciccio and his project FEMORE for production purposes, with Fabrizio San Pietro on mixing duties. Overdubs were used only for vocals, synth sounds and small details with the result of such endeavour being a stricter focus on the soul, darkened groove and overall cohesion of the music and themselves as musicians. In turn, 8 clarified to Ufomammut who they are as a unit now and their new sonic path…

8 is due for release on September 22nd on vinyl and CD formats via Neurot Recordings and on a limited and regular edition vinyl via Supernatural Cat. Pre order information, and more to be revealed over the coming months.

HARVESTMAN: Music For Megaliths Out Now

Music for Megaliths, the fourth release from HARVESTMAN — a solo project of Neurosis vocalist/guitarist Steve Von Till — is out now via Neurot Recordings.



Order Music for Megaliths on CD, LP and digital formats now through the Neurot Recordings webstore HERE

As with previous HARVESTMAN works, Music For Megaliths shows Von Till handling electric and acoustic guitars, bass, synthesizers, hurdy gurdy, effects and vocals. And, what’s more, the album was fully performed, recorded, and mixed at Von Till's own studio, The Crow’s Nest, in Northern Idaho. Neurosis’ Jason Roeder provides drums to the track “Levitation.” The album’s exploratory, mood-altering, spiritual atmospheres were mastered by James Plotkin, and the album was completed with artwork by Thomas Hooper.

Noisey continues to stream Music for Megaliths in full right HERE.

“The album is a great example of the ever-bountiful intersection between heavy metal and experimental music, feeling like the former without ever exploding into pounding riffs and drums.” — Noisey

“Harvestman, yet another killer project from Neurosis's Steve Von Till … is ambient, relaxing music to lose yourself in, and it's pretty great. Though when has Steve Von Till release music that isn't fantastic in its own unique way?” — Metal Injection

“A soothing adventure, [“Levitation”] is one that lulls the listener into a daze with it’s hypnotic circular melodies and rhythms.” — Overblown

HARVESTMAN: Music For Megaliths By Neurosis’ Steve Von Till Streaming At Noisey; Album To See Release Next Week Through Neurot Recordings

Photo Credit: Niela Von Till
Neurosis vocalist/guitarist Steve Von Till will release Music For Megaliths -- the anxiously-anticipated fourth album under the banner of his solo outfit, HARVESTMAN -- next week through Neurot Recordings. Advancing the album’s public release, Noisey is hosting an early listen to the exploratory album in its lush entirety.

“Neurosis singer/guitarist Steve Von Till makes music with his main band that more or less sounds like one of these boulders slowly colliding with your head, but his solo work under his own name and as the drone project HARVESTMAN provides a more placid kind of heaviness, as the new HARVESTMAN album Music For Megaliths demonstrates,” Noisey offers in part. “The album is a great example of the ever-bountiful intersection between heavy metal and experimental music, feeling like the former without ever exploding into pounding riffs and drums.”

Explore HARVESTMAN’s vast Music For Megaliths at Noisey RIGHT HERE.

As with prior HARVESTMAN and other solo releases by Steve Von Till, Music For Megaliths sees the artist handling a wide array of instruments and approaches, including vocals, electric and acoustic guitars, bass, synthesizers, hurdy gurdy, effects, and more, fully performed, recorded, and mixed at his own The Crow’s Nest in Northern Idaho. Neurosis’ Jason Roeder provides drums to the track “Levitation,” and the album’s exploratory, mood-altering, spiritual atmospheres were mastered by James Plotkin, and the album was completed with artwork by Thomas Hooper.


Neurot Recordings will release HARVESTMAN‘s Music For Megaliths on CD, LP, and digital formats next Friday, May 19th; preorders and bundles are available at the Neurot webstore HERE.

"Ruins, monuments, and ancient sites of worship are multi-sensory experiences – at once residues of the sacred, the parchment on which the passage of time has been inscribed and templates for imaginative reconstruction, spaces in which to invest and immerse, to trade your bearings for an inexhaustible state of transition.

Over the course of three albums, Steve Von Till has, under the guise of HARVESTMAN, provided the sonic analogue, casting his net for what might have been and yet still be. Both a personal meditation and a tuning fork for the most ancient and enduring of resonances, his latest album, Music For Megaliths, further expands his journeys along the sonic ley lines that run between folk, drone, psychedelia, the “kosmische” outposts of krautrock and noise: not as an act of eclecticism, but of divination, giving voice to an underlying continuity that binds them all.

Recorded over a period of several years in the dawn hours of creation, Music For Megaliths is an aggregation of moments and recordings that have allowed themselves to spell out a greater whole. Utilizing repetition, manipulation, and modulation, it’s a hallowed frequency dial that ranges across the pulse-regulated drone of “The Forest Is Our Temple,” revving up like a generator powered by arcane currents, the blissful gaze of “Ring Of Sentinels,” “Sundown”’s ominous waves of interference and “White Horse”’s rite of dissolution and regeneration, nomadic and devout. Music For Megaliths is a crossing over, whose multiple routes are testament to a singular and sensuously dilated vision." – words by Jonathan Selzer, 2017

Surrounding the release of Fires Within Fires, Decibel Magazine published an entire issue dedicated to NEUROSIS, including multiple rare Hall Of Fame features as well as a full feature on the new album, a very brief section of the coverage praising, “NEUROSIS have redefined what heavy meant and what heavy could be, all while refusing to define themselves as anything more than conduits for the music they conjure like diviners. Now releasing their eleventh LP, Fires Within Fires, they’ve ascended from the trappings of youth to alter the landscape of heavy music like the violent shift of tectonic plates.” Rolling Stone published a massive feature on the band, including in part, “Outside of booking tours and scheduling press, the group has existed as a DIY operation for the better part of the last two decades, sort of like metal's equivalent to Fugazi or Black Flag. Everything about NEUROSIS, from their extended drum etudes to the Pink Floyd–like visuals they hauled on the road with them for years, has been about bowing to their own artistic whims… Fires Within Fires, showcases the best aspects of the NEUROSIS experience: downtuned Sabbath-influenced riffs, pounding tribal drumming, fleeting moments of elegance and caustic vocals recounting personal apocalypses.”

HARVESTMAN: Solo Project By Neurosis’ Steve Von Till Streams “Levitation” As Music For Megaliths Nears May Release Via Neurot Recordings

Photo Credit: Niela Von Till

Steve Von Till’s HARVESTMAN – one of the Neurosis vocalist/guitarist’s solo ventures – will release its fourth album under the moniker through Neurot Recordings this May. As the anticipated new record grows closer to its official street date, a new single has been unveiled.

As with prior HARVESTMAN and other solo releases by Steve Von Till, Music For Megaliths sees the artist handling a wide array of instruments and approaches, including vocals, electric and acoustic guitars, bass, synthesizers, hurdy gurdy, effects, and more, fully performed, recorded, and mixed at his own The Crow’s Nest studio in Northern Idaho. The seven mentally expansive tracks were mastered by James Plotkin, and the album completed with artwork by Thomas Hooper.

Music For Megaliths’ fifth movement, “Levitation,” is the only track on the album to feature straightforward percussion, as the song features Neurosis drummer Jason Roeder on drums. The restrained but driving rhythms add a sense of perseverance to the album’s exploratory, mood-altering, spiritual atmosphere.

“Ruins, monuments, and ancient sites of worship are multi-sensory experiences – at once residues of the sacred, the parchment on which the passage of time has been inscribed and templates for imaginative reconstruction, spaces in which to invest and immerse, to trade your bearings for an inexhaustible state of transition.

Over the course of three albums, Steve Von Till has, under the guise of HARVESTMAN, provided the sonic analogue, casting his net for what might have been and yet still be. Both a personal meditation and a tuning fork for the most ancient and enduring of resonances, his latest album, Music For Megaliths, further expands his journeys along the sonic ley lines that run between folk, drone, psychedelia, the “kosmische” outposts of krautrock and noise: not as an act of eclecticism, but of divination, giving voice to an underlying continuity that binds them all.

Recorded over a period of several years in the dawn hours of creation, Music For Megaliths is an aggregation of moments and recordings that have allowed themselves to spell out a greater whole. Utilizing repetition, manipulation, and modulation, it’s a hallowed frequency dial that ranges across the pulse-regulated drone of “The Forest Is Our Temple,” revving up like a generator powered by arcane currents, the blissful gaze of “Ring Of Sentinels,” “Sundown”’s ominous waves of interference and “White Horse”’s rite of dissolution and regeneration, nomadic and devout. Music For Megaliths is a crossing over, whose multiple routes are testament to a singular and sensuously dilated vision.” – words by Jonathan Selzer, 2017





Neurot Recordings will release HARVESTMAN‘s Music For Megaliths on CD, LP, and digital formats May 19th; preorders and bundles are available at the Neurot webstore HERE.

Surrounding the release of Fires Within Fires, Decibel Magazine published an entire issue dedicated to NEUROSIS, including multiple rare Hall Of Fame features as well as a full feature on the new album, a very brief section of the coverage praising, “NEUROSIS have redefined what heavy meant and what heavy could be, all while refusing to define themselves as anything more than conduits for the music they conjure like diviners. Now releasing their eleventh LP, Fires Within Fires, they’ve ascended from the trappings of youth to alter the landscape of heavy music like the violent shift of tectonic plates.” Rolling Stone published a massive feature on the band, including in part, “Outside of booking tours and scheduling press, the group has existed as a DIY operation for the better part of the last two decades, sort of like metal's equivalent to Fugazi or Black Flag. Everything about NEUROSIS, from their extended drum etudes to the Pink Floyd–like visuals they hauled on the road with them for years, has been about bowing to their own artistic whims… Fires Within Fires, showcases the best aspects of the NEUROSIS experience: downtuned Sabbath-influenced riffs, pounding tribal drumming, fleeting moments of elegance and caustic vocals recounting personal apocalypses.”

ALARIC: DARK PUNK COLLECTIVE’S EUROPEAN TOUR ON THE HORIZON; WATCH THE TOUR TRAILER

[Tour Poster by Tony Roberts]

April is looming which means Alaric will soon be bringing their darkened punk alchemy to European shores. This marks the Oakland collective’s first European visit following the release of their latest full length, End Of Mirrors (Neurot Recordings, May 2016). The tour consists of fifteen dates across eight countries, including a scheduled appearance at Roadburn Festival - and you can now watch a trailer for these dates below:



Support comes from American experimental duo Pinkish Black. Here are the dates in full:-

TOUR DATES

19-4 - Willemeen - Arnhem - The Netherlands 
20-4 - Roadburn - Tilburg - The Netherlands
21-4 - Doom Over Leipzig - Leipzig - Germany 
22-4 - Klub Poglos - Warsaw - Poland
23-4 - Collosseum Club - Kosice - Slovakia
24-4 - Dürer Kert - Budapest - Hungary
25-4 - Klub 007 - Prague - Czech Republic 
26-4 - Divaldo Pod Lampou - Pilsen - Czech Republic
27-4 - Kulturbahnhof - Jena - Germany
28-4 - Die Friese - Bremen - Germany - 
29-4 - Northern Discomfort - Copenhagen - Denmark 
1-5 - Hafenklang - Hamburg - Germany
2-5 - Antwerp Music City - Antwerp - Belgium
3-5 - La Zone - Liège - Belgium
4-5 - Stumpf - Hannover - Germany


Alaric features​ within its ranks current and former members of Dead And Gone, Pins Of Light, Noothgrush, Hedersleben, UK Subs, and Jello Biafra and Guantanamo school of Medicine. ​​They ​began their voyage in 2008 with an eye toward creating moody and compelling music unlike any other. Alaric’s previous releases include a debut single Animal/Shadow Of Life (FYBS/ Buried In Hell Records, 2010), a self-titled LP (20 Buck Spin, 2011) and a split 12” LP, with Atriarch (20 Buck Spin, 2012). They released End Of Mirrors on CD, vinyl, and digital formats via Neurot Recordings, and on cassette via Sentient Ruin Laboratories in May 2016. The record was captured and mixed by Skot Brown at Kempton House Studios and provides an emotional and deeply physical journey via their shadowy sounds - beginning with influences from such progenitors as Killing Joke and Christian Death to the darkest, heaviest punk bands and psychedelia.





"Its a brave new direction that brings to mind the kind of electronic atmospherics that Tom Constanten added to the sound of The Grateful Dead at the height of their psychedelic San Francisco period during the late 1960s. Here, however, the Kool-Aid has been spiked with battery acid and the vibe is mean, lean and bristling with something that sounds like a hybrid of Motorhead and Genesis." - WIRE

“As a whole, it’s a dark, almost apocalyptic sweep of sound. Sitting alongside the recent releases by Se Delan and Madame Mayflower, 2016 is starting to look like the year goth is reborn. Forget darkwave and all that cal: emerging from a protracted period of social and economic turmoil, uncertainty, unrest, fear, and an all-pervading sense of existential trauma, we’re back in the late ‘70s and early 80s, and this is the real deal.” - AURAL AGGRAVATION

HARVESTMAN: HEAR THE ALBUM OPENER ‘THE FOREST IS OUR TEMPLE’ TAKEN FROM THE NEW UPCOMING FULL-LENGTH, MUSIC FOR MEGALITHS (MAY 19, NEUROT RECORDINGS)

[Photo Credit: Niela Von Till]

Following the recent news that Neurot Recordings will release the fourth full-length from Harvestman, – one of Neurosis vocalist/guitarist Steve Von Till’s solo ventures – titled Music For Megaliths, we today unveil the opening track from the album, ‘The Forest Is Our Temple’. Resonating like an instrumental drone scripture with ritualistic tones, textures and tempos, layers of gorgeous acoustic strings fuse and expand with ominous, distorted amplified undercurrents and a constant hurdy-gurdy hymn. In turn, ‘The Forest Is Our Temple’ sets the hue for Music For Megaliths as a transformative passage of music, evoking realms of welcomed immersive introspection.



As with prior Harvestman and other solo releases by Steve Von Till, Music For Megaliths sees the artist handling a wide array of instruments and approaches, including vocals, electric and acoustic guitars, bass, synthesizers, hurdy gurdy, effects, and more, fully performed, recorded, and mixed at his own The Crow’s Nest studio in Northern Idaho. Neurosis’ Jason Roeder also provides drums to the album’s fifth track, “Levitation.” The seven sonically and mentally expansive tracks were mastered by James Plotkin, and the album completed with artwork by Thomas Hooper.

Album to be release on May 19th, artwork, track listing, and more can be found below.




Music For Megaliths Track Listing:
1. The Forest Is Our Temple
2. Oak Drone
3. Ring Of Sentinels
4. Cromlech
5. Levitation
6. Sundown
7. White Horse

UFOMAMMUT ANNOUNCE NEW ALBUM "8" INCOMING SEPTEMBER 22ND VIA NEUROT; PLUS LIVE DATES ANNOUNCED



Speak to any purveyor of the darkened heavy sonic and they’ll recommend UFOMAMMUT. Masters of melding uncompromisingly heavy magic with psychedelic swirls, it is now with the heaviest and most immense pleasure to announce that the Italian alchemic juggernaut will be offering a new album this September 22nd via Neurot Recordings consisting of eight darkened gems, aptly titled 8.

Sonically and symbolically, 8 is not only wickedly limitless in its heaviness, powerfulness and commanding nature, but how it arrests the listener’s mind creating a wholly unbounded and impenetrable sensory experience. Laden with symbolic nuances, 8 most obviously gestures towards this being Ufomammut’s 8th offering, comprised of 8 stunningly immersive tracks that flow into each other without interruption. This flow can also be seen when you tip 8 horizontally, thus it morphs into the leniscate from algebraic geometry - ∞ - a plane curve that meets at central point - or more commonly known as the infinity symbol. A continuous stream of movement reflective of the uninterrupted nature of the album but also the continued togetherness of the essential elements of the band – Urlo, Poia and Vita – since the beginning of the band’s history. ∞ tipped vertically sees us return to the number 8. It must be stressed there is no singular pronunciation of the title, 8 is to be spoken in every language e.g. “eight” in Engish, “otto” in Italian, “acht” in German and so on.
As stated, 8 is a continuous flux of music, a singular entity, which can be defined in micro measurements by its 8 satellite songs. Each track expands upon the preceding song, unfolding into an exceedingly dense, malevolent and formidable journey, resulting in this being Ufomammut’s most extreme venture yet, with no permittance for breathing space in the 48 minutes. The album’s predecessor Ecate has now been put to rest and we can be assured that 8 is an essential turning point in the infinity that is Ufommamut’s sonic.


Watch a video of Ufomammut's 8 recording session 



Recorded at Crono Sound Factory in Vimodrone, Milano (IT), 8 is a major turning point in the heavy alchemic arts, with the elements of Ufomammut’s recording constellation being re-aligned. Although the musicians within Ufomammut’s collective remain unturned, a change in recording approach saw the trio playing and recording live together in the same room, even utilising their live sound engineer Ciccio and his project FEMORE for production purposes, with Fabrizio San Pietro on mixing duties. Overdubs were used only for vocals, synth sounds and small details with the result of such endeavor being a stricter focus on the soul, darkened groove and overall cohesion of the music and themselves as musicians. In turn, 8 clarified to Ufomammut who they are as a unit now and their new sonic path…

8 is due for release on September 22nd on vinyl and CD formats via Neurot Recordings and on a limited and regular edition vinyl via Supernatural Cat. Pre order information, album tracks and more to be revealed over the coming months.


UFOMAMMUT LIVE DATES

16/06 - Freak Valley Fest (Netphen, DE)
18/06 – Hellfest (Clisson, FR)
04/08 – Disintegrate Your Ignorance Fest (Giavera del Montello, IT)

06/10 – Up in Smoke Fest (Pratteln, CH)
13/10 – Korjaamo BlowUp Vol.3 Festival (Helsinki, FI)


Keep your ears and mind open for more news about 8 in the coming weeks…

AMENRA INVITED TO PERFORM AT ROADBURN BY CURATOR JOHN DYER BAIZLEY

[Photo Credit: Stefaan Temmerman]

Roadburn Festival 2017 curator, John Dyer Baizley, announces that AMENRA will perform a set at this year's festival. 

Roadburn and the Church of Ra are certainly no strangers; and there's no doubt they’ve left an impression on the wider music community.

“As I round out the lineup for my curated stages at the upcoming Roadburn Festival 2017, I’m again thrilled to announce one of the last acts I’ve booked: the uncontested visionary of monochromatic heaviness, AMENRA. The last time I witnessed an AMENRA performance was at Roadburn 2013, when they could still fit (barely) inside Het Patronaat. The line out the door was hundreds of show-goers long, and I was somehow able to force my way inside to see the band perform. To say they blew us all away would be a grossly undersold miscalculation. They set a new standard for me that afternoon, demonstrating just how forward-thinking and discovery-rich DIY music can be; a transcendent marriage of heaviness, artistry, non-linearity, energy, and soul which vaulted from AMENRA’s stage and through the audience.

“It is with the greatest pleasure that I announce their 2017 performance will be the first “heavy” set they've done in quite some time. They were at the top of my list of invitees when I was first asked to curate, and I wouldn't skip their 013 set for any rational reason. They are the penultimate Roadburn band; they’re a modern band, they defy categorization, and they are single-minded in their commitment to an unwavering artistic vision of beautiful cacophony. If this music could take physical form, it would render mountains to dust. Those faint of heart attendees beware, this is music that leaves a trace. I’ll see you all there.”

AMENRA have recently completed work on their upcoming album Mass VI, which will be released later on in the year via Neurot Recordings. To tide you over until Mass VI surfaces, the ever prolific creative forces behind AMENRA have teamed up with fellow Ghent musicians, Raketkanon to create AMENRA X RAKETKANON X MICHAËL BORREMANS — a split 10” released in May via Consouling Sounds.

Colin Van Eeckhout will present a short documentary filmed throughout 2016, entitled Noisey Meets: Colin Van Eeckhout as part of Roadburn Cinema. Directed by Duco Coops for Vice/Noisey this short documentary follows AMENRA’s frontman at various points throughout 2016. 

Colin comments: “I wanted to put emphasis on the human aspect of being a musician; everybody always pictures us living in cellars drinking blood from skulls, but there’s more to our lives than that. You see my mom, my kids, my work, rehearsal space, some spots where it all began for AMENRA in the skatepark...you see what its really like behind the scenes. The free moments we have in our lives we dedicate it all to art, creation and music. We want to give form to that world inside our heads.”

AMENRA will perform on the main stage at the 013 venue, as part of John Dyer Baizley’s curation, on Friday, April 21, 2017. Meanwhile check out remaining dates below for previously announced shows...

NEUROSIS ANNOUNCE FURTHER LIVE SHOWS THIS SUMMER


NEUROSIS continue to announce live shows in support of their lauded eleventh studio album, Fires Within Fires. Today the band reveals a handful of festival and other live appearances in July.

NEUROSIS SUMMER 2017 LIVE SHOWS
Sat July 1: DK - Roskilde, Roskilde Festival
Sun July 2: SE - Stockholm, Kraken (w/ Wolfbrigade & Author & Punisher)
Mon July 3: SE - Gothenburg, Pustervik (w/ Author & Punisher)
Tue July 4: FI - Helsinki, Tavastia (w/ Dark Buddha Rising)
Wed July 5: IS - Neskaupstadur, Eistnaflug


"There is a deep energy and there is effervescent force... NEUROSIS play as if they have cracked the secret of punk itself, revealing that the truth of speed is slowness (take note accelerationists), and that high, taut voices and trebly guitars are just pitched up versions of the howls and bass that lie beneath." - WIRE 

"a revelation" - METAL HAMMER

"Just like their live show after the departure of Josh Graham, NEUROSIS became rawer, more hardened and even simpler in a way, following the cycle-closing ‘Honor Found In Decay’. ‘Fires Within Fires’ is their shortest and most concise record since ‘Pain Of Mind’, but at the same time it’s one of the deepest, most memorable and dynamic of an illustrious, world-changing career that has celebrated its 30th anniversary this year. Only five songs, but as one full piece they unleash the spontaneous, exploding-star kind of energy that Neurosis, and no one else, are capable of creating." - TERRORIZER

"The Oakland five piece are on flawless form this evening, creating a sonic experience that enraptures as it crushes. They are a formidable presence, shifting from one song to another with machine like precision. A set stripped of the band’s more ambient soundscapes highlights just how skilled NEUROSIS are within their craft. Most bands would crumble under the pressure of having one of their key elements taken away, however, Neurosis prove that they are able to deliver no matter what the circumstances, and that every dynamic of their sound is expertly executed. Closing with classic ‘Through Silver in Blood’, tonight has been a truly humbling experience and proof that, after three decades, NEUROSIS are still very much at the top of their game." - AVE NOCTUM

"The power of NEUROSIS is an undeniable fact." - ECHOES AND DUST
