With "Snailking", their second full length release, Ufomammut was worldwide recognized as the creator of a unique brand of psychedelic sludge. With long songs, droning vocals and massive effects Ufomammut is right there along side of Neurosis, combining their monumental riffing attitude with the psychedelia of the more visionary Pink Floyd.
Monolord somehow already had the heaviness, riffs, and sublime tone they have become known for, though the songwriting isn't quite up to their later standard (It's already more than competent, though). I don't say this often, but this is essential for doomheads. Reuben Sammitch
Rust was in my Top 5 albums of the year for 2017 but since has moved to one of my all-time favorites. This is the kind of album the gets in your head and swirls around until you wonder if you'll ever hear anything better. Monolord is more addictive than heroin! feind_gottes
