We’re stoked to announce that the band Ufomammut has joined us on our trip to The Planet of Doom! They’ll be teamed up with artist Ian Bederman on a journey that’s soaked in blood!
Ufomammut is a power trio formed in Italy in 1999 by Poia, Urlo and Vita, a lineup that has remained stable since. The trio have developed a sound characterized by lengthy songs centered on repeated heavy riffs coupled with droning vocals and the use of sound effects and synths.
Their status as one of the most potent, powerful and artistic contemporary doom artists in existence continues to captivate the masses, and the band’s worldwide grasp grows wider with each release. Their live show is supported by the internationally acclaimed video and graphic art of Malleus, a rock artists’ collective of which Poia and Urlo form a part, who conjure the entirety of Ufomammut’s visual impact.
Andrei Bouzikov was born in Vitebsk, Belarus in 1979. He was taught art by his parents at an early age. After receiving an award for Excellence in Visual Arts from high school, he decided to become an artist. Andrei’s art reflects his childhood and the surroundings he grew up in.
Fascinated with his native country’s past, he creates haunted and surreal images of war, religion, broken dreams and an uncertain future. At a young age he would spend most of his time in Belarusian forests, searching for artifacts from the past.
Andrei immigrated to the United States in 1996 at the age 16. In 2000 he attended the Academy of Art University, where with the help of the University’s excellent instructors he polished his painting and drawing skills. In 2006 Andrei left school to pursue a career as a freelance illustrator.
