Ufomammut is a power trio formed in 1999 in Italy by Poia, Urlo and Vita.
The band is worldwide recognized for its unique genre of space sludge that combines a monumental riffing attitude with a peculiar kind of futuristic psychedelia.
In more than 20 years, among a number of other works, the trio has published eight studio albums, mainly under Supernatural Cat (the record label of Malleus Rock Art Lab of which Poia and Urlo are founders) and the last 3 for Neurot Recordings.
Ufomammut has toured several times all over Europe, Russia, Usa, Canada, Australia and New Zealand and has been present in the most important heavy music festivals around the World.
The artworks and live shows are supported by the graphic and video art of Malleus, the rock artists’ collective of which Poia and Urlo are part, who conjure the entirety of Ufomammut’s visual impact.
At the beginning of January 2020 the drummer Vita left the band.
In April 2021 Ufomammut are back, Levre is the new drummer.

MALLEUS Rock Art Lab
Malleus is a music devoted artistic collective spreading its tentacles through all kind of visual arts.
They’re mainly known for their handmade silkscreens for gigs and events.
Poia and Urlo are the founders of this artistic lab together with Lu (the one behind Ufomammut’s visual art).
SUPERNATURAL CAT Records
Supernatural Cat is a very DIY label, it’s an evolving sonic project, run by the 3 music addicted guys of Malleus Rock Art Lab.
The goal of the label is to find music that is not closed in any genre, music has to be filled with the breath of originality, something special, something unique.
Supernatural Cat considers the record like a handicraft piece, a way totally opposed to the serial logic of today.
Almost every release comes out in a first limited edition run, with handmade numbered silkscreened covers and deluxe packages, including different media supports like vinyl, compact disc and dvd.
Obviously, all the artworks of the records come out of the Malleus headquarters.
THE MON is the solo project of Urlo.
Where Ufomammut creates mind-expanding, heavy psychedelic, almost other-dimensional sounds, THE MON by comparison is far more intimate, looking inward, as Urlo explores and examines his inner most thoughts through music.
The aim of THE MON is to reach the boundaries of a spiritual soundscape in which the music becomes purification and atonement, a way to bring out the world that is inside human soul.
THE MON is not only music, as you can discover on the website.
Farwest Zombee was born as a side project of Urlo and it expanded involving Poia, members of lento and the English singer Rose Kemp.
Distorted soundscapes, slow and subtle drones, repetitive circles, eerie and fearful lines make the listener totally involved in a evil and loud atmosphere.
An abstract project starting from the deep sonorities to cover a complete range of dreaming nightmares.
