The new album by Ufomammut

Published: 2017-09-20

It's clear that the new album by the Italian psychedelic rock outfit UFOMAMMUT is going to be one of the best 2017 releases. As mammoths told me in an interview a while ago, they have signed the contract with the devil to release at least 20! For now we are all looking forward for the 8th!

Playing for more than 20 years Godspeed You! Black Emperor have secured their place as one of the most influential and extraordinary post-rock/experimental rock bands. Their new album 'Luciferian Towers' is a majestic step forward that devil itself would be proud of. Stream 'Luciferian Towers' via NPRmusic!

Stream the new album by Chelsea Wolfe 'Hiss Spun' via NPR. My favourite track is the very last one - 'Scrape'. Ominuos and unsettling with industrial elements seeping in.

ABOUT


Elena

Elena Mara Reed


It was Vilnius Punk-Hardcore scene that introduced me to extreme music and radical politics. As a teen activist I found shelter in various underground venues throughout Lithuania and the rest of Europe. Together with my grrrlfriends, we hosted a radio show 'Atviras Galas' dedicated to non-commercial music and feminist agenda, we set up gigs and naively hoped for significant socio-political changes. Years went by. I moved to the UK. Revolution did not happen. My taste in music became darker, grittier and more bizarre. Post-metal, sludge and doom. Desolation to spare with industrial, experimental, noise, ambient and dark techno.


One grim day I was chatting with a mate about the disappearance of the DIY culture. Mutually grim we mourned. Out of grimness an exciting idea of starting a new platform for extreme music was born. I wanted to give voice to underdogs of the scene, to add a personal, more intimate approach and most importantly to keep it DIY. Mutual Grimness - for extreme music artists and fans, who find catharsis in riffs (and beats) and refuge from the misery of life in music.
