Sabba

Posted in **News**, Art Prints, Prints with tags , , on September 11, 2014 by malleus

King Buzzo was amazing.
A great show, really.
I think the poster we realized is very close to the gig situation, it was a sort of sabbath, with all the people hypnotized by a demon playing and singing with only an acoustic guitar even if it was like there was a storm coming out of the PA system.
Very very cool.

Today we want to show You the Art print version of the King Buzzo poster and it’s called Sabba (italian for Sabbath).
It’s a limited edition of only 44 pieces, on a glittered raw paper, three colors only.
First one is a red.

AP01

Then we used an iridescent gold, almost transparent to have a reflection effect on the skin of the witches dancing and a an orange gold on the dresses and tree.

AP02AP03

 

Then, last color is a black.

AP04AP05AP

We’re very happy of the result of this one, very different from the regular version, even if the atmosphere remains very dark and evil.
King Buzzo, Sabba, Mudhoney and Cult will be all on sale on our webstore from the 14th of september!

Moreover, please remember that today is the last day to have our brand new tees “Moonchild” and “Kiss” at a pre-sale lower price.
You can find them here at IFmerch webstore: http://malleus.ifmerch.com/en/type/t-shirt
Don’t miss them!

King Buzzo

Posted in **News**, Posters, Prints with tags , , , on September 8, 2014 by malleus

We’ve just finished the printing process of the poster for the acustic gig of King Buzzo (The Melvins) in Milano (well, close by), tomorrow.
During these years, we’ve always noticed that working for the Melvins was always great.
If I have to think about a band I love, the Melvins are surely on the top of the chart.
I remember when I first listen to Lysol.
Damn, it changed my life, totally.
And then, everytime we attended a Melvins show, it was a blast.
The first time we saw them it was 1994, they were opening for Nirvana.
It was a few months before the suicide of Kurt Cobain.
We were there for listen to the Melvins, and we were so excited.
It was a great gig.
So, tomorrow, back in Milano, Mr Buzz Osbourne (known as King Buzzo), will play his solo album and it’ll be great to be a part of the show with our gigposter.
Inspired by this “passion” for the Melvins, we imagined a sort of witches Sabbath dancing around a magic tree, shaped like the King Buzzo “haircut”.
If You don’t know about it, just take a look around and You’ll understand.
Anyway, let’s go with some pics.
It’s a dark poster and the first color has been a dark blu.

Then we worked on a shade from silver to a metallic pink.

Finally we printed a black ink.

And this is the final result.

We’re gonna number them tomorrow and bring them to the show.
There’ll also be an art print we’ll show You in the next days.
Both of them will be on sale next week.
We’ll have them on our webshop, from the 14th of september, together with the Mudhoney posters.
So, stay tuned!

XV – 15 years of Ufomammut

Posted in **News**, Music with tags , , , on September 4, 2014 by malleus

It’s been a very hard work to make it happens.
We started last February and we finally had it in our hands at the beginning of this week.
What are we taking about?
We’re talking about a dvd project that absorbed plenty of energies from us, but the result made us so proud and happy of the work, that we’re totally excited to tell You all that “XV – 15 years of Ufomammut” will be out next October.
Poia and Urlo, two of the Malleus crew, are also 2 of the 3 members of Ufomammut.
This year 2014 is the 15th birthday of the band, so we thought it would have been great to celebrate with something that could have been interesting.
We filmed a documentary with tons of interviews and old videos and also a 12 song live set.
The DVD features over three hours of live footage — including Magickal Mastery Live, the 12 song live act mentioned above — interviews, outtakes, and extras all documenting these first fifteen years of the band.
This audiovisual experience will also be available as a special wooden 8GB USB drive.
Here are a few pics and You can pre-order it from HERE.

The wooden usb key is totally awesome!
More coming soon!

Already a winner!

Posted in Art Prints, Posters, Prints with tags , on September 3, 2014 by malleus

We already have a winner.
Mr Jim Kincaid did it and about 20 hours ago guessed just the right name of the band of our last poster: Mudhoney.
He’s been the first, so he’s won a poster.
And now it’s time to show You how the print looks like.

It’s a 4 colors handprinted silkscreen.
And we’re so happy with it.
The lights in it are gorgeous.
As You can see on the left top of the image above, there’s a bee.
The print represent the instant just before another poster we did years ago for Mudhoney.
At that time, the woman was stinging her tongue with a bee.

Then we worked on an art print we called “CULT”.
It’s a limited edition of about 40/45 pieces.
Again 4 colors but on a wonderful kraft iridescent glittered paper.

Posted in **News**, Art Prints, Prints with tags , , on August 29, 2014 by malleus

Don’t You think it’s incredible I’m again here writing on the blog?
And moreover, I’m doing this while preparing my stuff for going to Wien.
I’m touched by such a great willpower.
I’m here to show You a few more pics of the print we’re working on cause we’re very excited about it.
It’s a very nice design and I’m sure You’ll like it.
We’re working at a regular version and then, cause we like it a lot, we’re also preparing a very limited art print.
So, today, I want to show You the paper and the first colors of it.
Paper is a rough one, light brown and gold glittered.
Colors are light blue and light purple shading one into the other.
And all together is totally cool!

After showing You these, I feel really better and I can go and finish my luggages.
So, see You tomorrow in Wien and we’ll be back next week for showing You more of this print.
And also another thing.
Secrets…

Summertime

Posted in **News** with tags , , , , on August 27, 2014 by malleus

What a boring summer it’s been.
Well, I know, it’s not already gone, but most of it passed like it was a sort of julember and then augustoctober…
It’s been really annoying.
I mean, I don’t like when it’s super warm and You melt just breathing.
But this year it’s been like leaving in a middle of a rain forest.
One day of weak sun and then rain, rain rain like Noah was here.
So, it’s been really boring.
And I’m happy we’re almost over cause we’ll have to set our minds on new works.
And it’s a cool thing.
We’re thrilled to see what’s going to be in the next weeks and months, lots to do and to create.
We’ve spent the most part of this boring summer working on a dvd project for Ufomammut.
We’ll talk about it very soon, just waiting to see it in person.
And it’ll bring lot of nice stuff.
Anyway and by the way.
If You’re in Wien this saturday, we’ll be playing at the Viper Room and we’ll have Malleus posters with us.
Come to say hi!

Then, we’re very happy to announce other 2 tees we’re realizing with our friends in Canada at IFmerch.
We’ve decided to go for a previously unrealized artwork we’ve called “Moonchild”…

moonchild

and then to finally set our minds on “Kiss”, based on a design we did years ago on a gigposter for Baroness and Kylesa playing in Austria.
During the last year we’ve seen it so many times used without permission (stolen) by so many web-printer-thieves that we’ve decided to do it for real as Malleus.
When someone used for a Grateful Dead tee (without our permission)  it was really the last straw!
So, thanks to IF merch to make it for real as an official Malleus item.

kiss

And if You’ll preorder the tees, You’ll have a better price now.
So, go and check them HERE!

And today we’ve started the printing process for a new poster.
Here’s the first screen, a shadow for a lime to a cyan color.
01 02

The regular version is on a raw paper.
Then there’ll be an art print but we’ll show it to You next week.
Sadist guys… ahaha

Ok, it’s all for now.
See You in Wien, then:-)
