Snailking was only the second release by the now-veteran band known as Ufomammut. First released in 2004, this collection is super-heavy, truly metal, and also tempered around the edges by experimentalism. Also somewhat stoned-sounding, but we know that is a big positive in this territory. The LP reissue is provided by Supernatural Cat.

- Snailking by Ufomammut
8/10 gbar 6th March 2017
Inventive, introspective, well-varied and even downright heavy, Ufomammut's Snailking makes a great recommendation to any fan of the genre, casual or die-hard. Those with inclinations that can be best described as "post-rock" or "progressive" will no doubt find something to appreciate here as well. The references to other bands here might not show the band in an entirely original light, but this is fresh and quality enough to be considered a high-mark for doom metal of the last couple of years.
