Ufomammut : Godlike Snake

This is the first release from this huge woolly creature from outer space. Like their second release, 'Snailking', it is thick and heavy music with utterly spaced out, psychedelic elements. But one should expect a tad more stoner on this CD than on their second one. Actually you can expect a little less than 50% doom here.

High-pitched ufolike synth sounds litter the tracks to enable the music to sound as interstellar as possible. The stoner/doom riffage and rhythm section is what stands for the intense wall of sound which Ufomammut creates. Imagine these two main elements drone along together with sparse distant vocals and industrial sound clips, then you'll have a pretty good image of what you can expect of this CD.

A rather unique thing with Ufomammut is that the bonus tracks have a faint rhythmic sound in the space between the last main track and the bonus tracks. So in a way even if there is a vast gap between the tracks they seem to fade over into each other. It is also rather uncertain whether the bonus movie comes along with all the 'Godlike Snake' CD's, but I suspect they do as I've found no evidence of a re-release.

Do you like 5ive/5ive's Continuum Research Project, Starchild Electric Wizard, Pelican and/or YOB? Then this would probably be right up your ally. Just don't expect the music to sound like any of them. What you will hear here is basically in the same category as the aforementioned, but still they stand very much on musical ground that they have created on their own.
