May 26, 2023 seen the The Mon – the solo project of Ufomammut bassist/vocalist Urlo – release its second album »Eye«, featuring several high class guests such as Steve Von Till (Neurosis), Colin H. Van Eeckhout (Amenra), Francesca De Franceschi Manzoni and more. Today, a new video clip for the haunting song »Burning From Afar«, featuring Sarah Pendleton (SubRosa, The Otolith) on violin and guitars from David W. (White Hills), has been premiered with It’s Psychedelic Baby Magazine!
Urlo comments, “»Burning From Afar« is like a lysergic fairy tale in which the lyrics chase each other to create a mystical nursery rhyme. It’s also one of the two songs in which my friend Dave from the White Hills played his magic guitar, along with Sarah Pendleton from the Otolith which created a wonderful texture with her violin.. This song is one of my favourites of the album, hope You’ll like it as I do.”

Urlo, who is most widely known as the lead vocalist, bassist, synth player and one of the founding members of the heavy psych Italian band Ufomammut, is also one of the three minds behind the poster art trio Malleus Rock Art Lab, and one of the operators of Supernatural Cat Records. The aim of The Mon is to reach the boundaries of a spiritual soundscape in which the music becomes purification and atonement, a way to bring out the world that is inside the human soul. Where Ufomammut creates mind-expanding, heavy psychedelic, almost other-dimensional sounds, The Mon is far more intimate, looking inward, as Urlo explores and examines his innermost thoughts through music. The Mon builds layers of brooding sounds which sometimes unfurl at a glacial pace and other times lurch with rhythmic propulsion, each piece distinct, densely packed, and all-consuming in their evocative atmospheres.
In comparison to its predecessor, »Doppelleben«, The Mon’s »Eye« LP is more introspective and denser, the new record built around electronic soundscapes and acoustic atmospheres that take you on a sonic journey where the songs flow nonstop into one another.
The album was written, performed, produced, recorded, mixed, and mastered by Urlo at The Howl, Italy, and the artwork completed by the Malleus Rock Art Lab collective. While choosing a singular genre for The Mon’s »Eye« is surely a difficult challenge, one could classify the album as heavy dark folk electronic.
