Italy's psychedelic drone lords UFOMAMMUT will perform their acclaimed 2010 album, "Eve", in its entirety at this year's Roadburn Festival on Saturday, April 16 at the Midi Theatre in Tilburg, Holland.
"Eve" was recently voted "Album Of The Year" by Roadburn readers, and the album ranked top 10 in many year-end lists worldwide, ranging from The Obelisk to The Quietus. The appearance at our 2011 festival is not only a testament to "Eve"'s massive creative success, but it also honors our festival attendees for their dedication towards this beloved Italian trio.
"Eve" is a dedication to the first woman ever to walk the earth, and who caused the downfall of Adam and mankind. The album is a single 45-minute long gargantuan riff-prayer, separated into five distinctive movements that captivates, and leads us in a behemothic meditation on how cruel organized religion has been in dealing with the Garden of Eden's first lady.
In addition to "Eve", UFOMAMMUT's set will consist of several classic tracks the band hasn't recently played.
Commented the band: "Since our 'Eve' album was voted best of 2010 by Roadburn readers, playing it at the upcoming festival will have a very special meaning for UFOMAMMUT! It'll be our chance to properly say thanks to all the people who have supported us throughout the years."
Roadburn Festival 2011, set to be held from Thursday, April 14 to Saturday, April 16, sold out in approximately 15 minutes. However, there are still tickets available for the Roadburn Afterburner, which is set for Sunday, April 17 at the 013 venue in Tilburg, Holland.
The overall vibe of the 2011 Afterburner leans towards the old-school Roadburn festivals, as the organizers have put emphasis on classic psychedelic rock (BLACK MOUNTAIN, DEAD MEADOW), doom (BLOOD FARMERS, COFFINS, SOURVEIN, BLACK PYRAMID) and stoner rock (DRAGONTEARS, SAMSARA BLUES EXPERIMENT, GOMER PYLE) like they used to do in the past.
