Album Review: Ufomammut - 'Eve' (Supernatural Cat)

The Italian metal trio find spiritual enlightenment

The Pope crouched, beckoning to two young black children, there was a look in his eyes that suggested a man who has a direct line to Beezlebub himself, never mind his usual paymaster. Or perhaps Italian doom lords UFOmammut had infiltrated the Vatican and replaced ‘Gregorian Hits Vol IV’ with their fifth album ‘Eve’, leading the soul of His Holiness into the Pit. In their behemothic meditation on how religion has been unkind to the first lady of the Garden Of Eden, UFOmammut usher forth gargantuan riffs and slabs of noise heavier than anything else you’ll hear this year. Lo! The cherubs weep.
