Desertscene are happy to announce that Italian doom-psychers Ufomammut will be storming The Borderline this October.

Crafting mind-melting masterpieces since 1999, the three-piece of Poia, Urla and Vita have taken sludge in a refreshing direction of their own that they keep evolving with every new release. As much a bastard grandchild of Pink Floyd as a distant step-son of Sleep, Ufomammut don’t simply release albums as conduct complex compositions. Their first few gifts to the world, Godlike Snake and Snailking, are great introductions of course, but it’s the more recent master-classes, Eve – a five- part ode to the first woman on Earth – the complementary double releases of Oro, and 2015's Ecate that show the true genius of the band.

But their albums are only half the story as it's live where they dominate. Those who joined us at Desertfest 2015 will know just how crushing and tripped out Ufomammut are; their set leading into Sleep's Desertfest appearance is every bit as legendary as what came after.

They'll be joined by Portland, Oregon's Usnea, whose blackened doom takes the low and slow in a new direction. Check out 2014's excellent Random Cosmic Violence and we're sure you'll be down early to catch one of the most exciting bands in all of doom. For a crushingly heavy night, book your tickets now.
