Long time

Posted in **News**, Events, Posters with tags , , , , , , on April 27, 2011 by malleus

I must admit that this period I’m a little out of the Blog.
I’m relaxing from writing and posting and we’re doing a lot of things here, so time is really not that much.
But if You miss us so much You can come tomorrow in Milano, at Magnolia.
There’ll be a SupernaturalCat night with Ufomammut, OvO, Morkobot and I.C.O. playing.
And Malleus of course.

If You don’t have time, ok, we’ll understand.
We’re planning to travel again in September/October. Europe again, so we’ll meet somewhere.

In the meantime we’ve printed the AP version of the TeePee posters and they look very cool.
It’s a run of 71 pieces and they’ll be on sale from tomorrow.
The skin of the woman is silver and not light silver brown like in the tour copies.
And here are some shots.

This last one is a little distorted…:-)

We’re working at new projects involving bands like Pentagram, Mono, Festivals and galleries, so many things to do…

See You tomorrow in Milano.
C’mon it’s the capital of fashion! Come early and we’ll go shopping together…

It’s a really bad moment.
It’s quite difficult to write things in a language that is not mine, You know, we’re Italians, so our mother tongue is not english.
I know what You’re thinking about now… I know everybody reading is thinking “bunga bunga”.
And this makes me sad, cause we’re celebrating the 150 years of the unification of Italy in a period in which I can notice how deep our Country is sinking down… controlled by the worst people we could even imagine, always in a sort of mental coma, we’re becoming a joke for a lot of people, laughing at what we show to the rest of the World.
And I cannot say anything, cause the times of culture seem to be ended here.
I look at the Japanese people in these days, I can see their strength in fighting against something that is impossible to handle and they look incredible, I feel so much respect and love for their culture I cannot express with words.
And we’re celebrating here, like blind people, a unification that doesn’t link us at all, at the end.
Damn, it’s like we’re getting back into past, we’re moving on the reverse, not looking at the future, but at the past…

Ok, stop boring You.
Just toast to Italy if You want and cross fingers with us for a change in this fading Country.

We’ll be on tour in Europe next week, we’ll have some gigs with our band Ufomammut and it’ll be nice to go out of our borders for some days, we’ll meet people from the north and it’ll be cool.
Fresh air.
In the meantime we’re finishing a lot of works and we’re printing like hell.
We’ve just realized the new Supernatural Cat tees for the gig of Ufomammut/OvO/Morkobot and ICO in Ravenna this sunday.
C’mon, let take a plane and come to invade us.
We’ll be at a very cool venue called Bronson, check the flyer below.

It’ll be surely a great night to spend together and we’ll have some very nice stuff ready for You:
The new tees

Do You like it?
Ok, let’s take a plane, we’ll do a little discount for sure if You’ll show us Your ticket.
We’re very nice guys and being totally frightened by flying I could even be so nice to give it a tee as a present.
But please, don’t use You personal jet to come to Ravenna, or any helicopter.

Then we’ll have the OvO prints cause the guys will present their brand new album “Cor Cordium” coming out April 18th 2011.

Nice, Uh?

Then there’ll be the last Malleus posters (by the way, the Black Keys one will be back on our store once we’ll be back from the road, we want to have copies for our friends on tour, so check around for our resellers in the next days, they’ll have some).
So, a lot of good reasons to come and say hi.
Ok?

OvO tees

Posted in **News** with tags , on January 27, 2011 by malleus

While we’re inking and preparing to the Supernatural Cat night in Firenze, this saturday (with Malleus, but expecially with music by I.C.O., Morkobot and Ufomammut), we’ve printed the brand new official t-shirts of OvO.
By the way:

Ok, back to the tees…
Sorry, I’m easy to distraction.
What I was saying?
Oh yes!
While our Country is sinking every day more in a deep mud situation, with filthy people (well… they should be politicians…) trying to  persuade us that prostitution is a very nice thing, a normal way of living to earn money (in this case from flabby obscene people…), as You can start in reading here, …, we’re trying to forget these things, working a lot on several things.
I was saying, we printed OvO tees.
We had a special guest to print the tees.
The drummer of Ufomammut (Vita) printed them.
It’s been cool, as You can see from the pics below!

And here we go with another preview from the cover of “Cor Cordium” the new album from OvO coming in April.

I think it’s enough for today, we inked and painted and worked on illustrations and then we clapped Vita for his bravura passage in printing the tees.
They look very cool, isn’t it?

Din don DONE

Posted in **News**, Events, Music with tags , , , , , , on December 13, 2010 by malleus

I’ve just had the news that our work for TV has finished.
I know, You’d like to know more, but be patient, we’ll tell You and You’ll see soon.
So, as the title says, considering we’re close to Xmas and that there are bells everywhere… it’s din don Done…

Sorry for the humor.
I’m a little nervous cause while our Country is really close to a breakdown, politicians are playing around our prime minister for keeping him alive
Damn… if a God really exists probably is quite still angry with Romans too for putting his son of a cross.
And this act clearly as a holy revenge.
Anyway… You’re all still invited to invade us, just to clear us from politicians and, if You got some time left… from some Naples garbage.

Ok, let’s talk about what WE are doing.
First of all we’ve received a present from our Polish friend Malgorzata and we thanks her a lot.
Look at the bottles she sent us!

Ok.
Apart from these amazing items we’re even working and we’re finishing some cd covers and preparing for this friday, we’ll be in Ravenna at Bronson for a very very interesting Supernatural Cat night.

What is it?
Oh my gosh, You’re  always inattentive!
Supernatural Cat is our record label and we’ve worked out a night with all the bands we work with.
So You’ll have the opportunity to see Ufomammut playing together with OvO, Morkobot and I.C.O.
I suggest You all to take a holiday in Ravenna and come to visit us.
We’ll be there with our posters and we’ll have the last copies left of the JSBE and MAdM posters.
So… c’mon!

In the meantime here’s some little preview of how the Black Capricorn and Monkey3 covers are coming along.

And this is a small preview of the OvO cover.
It’s been cool to work on it, we’ve started from an idea of Stefania (the OvO girl) and we’ve developed our vision of her dreams.
Stay tuned cause we’ll show You how it’ll be very soon.
The record is coming out in spring via Supernatural Cat and it’ll be called Cor Cordium.
And it’s awesome.

Listening to anything right now.
So, check these ads… very very nice ones:-)

Again

Posted in **News** with tags , , , , , on November 15, 2010 by malleus

It’s raining again like hell.
It seems like the sun doesn’t want to shine here anymore.
Probably because our Country is getting grey and sad every day more, but it’s getting really annoying.
We’re working at some new posters and we’ll unveil the drawings very soon, they’re MEI 2010 and Jon Spencer Blues Explosion.
In the meantime we’re realizing some book covers and some illustrations for a big secret project.
Don’t be curious, we’ll tell You more very very soon.

By the way, there’s a book out right now for Arcana label, a book about Horror Rock and the cover is by Malleus.
It’s the Dark Nouveau print, as You can see, it fits perfectly.

Ok…
Yesterday we had a nice visit in the studio by the guys of Incoming Cerebral Overdive, well if You prefer You can call them ICO.
They are one of the bands on our label Supernatural Cat.
It’s been great to meet them, they came with some tracks for their next album (oh damn! You’ll have to wait, next year).
It seems it’ll be a very good record, so prepare Your stereo for them.
What? You don’t have a stereo but only earphones and an ipod… a pity.
Nothing is like a vinyl.
I know, I’m an old school guy…
Anyway, I’d like to close this post with our friend Mr C. posing with “io splendo”.
What does it means? Io splendo is “I shine”, and sure he does!

————————————————————————
I’m not listening to Black Breath, I wanted to go to their shw in Milano but this f***ing weather makes me so lazy…
And then, I could post “November rain” here… but there a limit to everything…

Prototypes and visions

Posted in **News**, Music with tags , , , on April 7, 2010 by malleus

We’ve it, finally, after hours, days, weeks and months of thinking and working, we have it.
The prototype of how the limited edition of Eve by Ufomammut will look like, is done.
A pity I’m one of the worst photographer around, but I hope You’ll understand what You’ll see.
I’ll try to make better pics with the final result…
First of all we’re very happy as Supernatural Cat (that is our record label) about the work we’ve done with this record.
Lu has finished yesterday the dvd with the visuals for Eve, cause this limited edition will be a 180 gr vinyl with cd and the entire song on video.
We’re totally excited about it.
There’ll be 400 copies on black  and 100 on transparent vinyl and the printing colours will be different too.
All of them are handprinted and they’ll be hand numbered cause we like to suffer a lot:-)
Anyway, let’s go with the pics:

This is the cover, printed with blu iridescent ink on heavy black paper.
What You see is an hole and behind there’s a silver paper holding the vinyl envelope.

Opening the cover You’ll find cd and dvd (they’re not the final ones, sorry).
Then open it again and You’ll find the envelope with the vinyl

The inside is printed and here below there’s a pic of how it looks like

Credits and notes on the inside of the silver stripe.
And it’s closed like below:

Once closed, You’ll see this on the back

Is it good? Are You thrilled like we are?
The limited edition will be on pre-order from next monday on Supernatural Cat website, but I’ll tell You again soon.
Cool

CONTROVERSO

Posted in Music with tags , , on September 29, 2009 by malleus

Today is the day of the new release by Supernatural Cat, our small and nice record label.
After  Ufomammut, Morkobot and Lento, it’s now time for Incoming Cerebral Overdrive with their brand new album “Controverso”.
I know, their name is impossible to be remembered, but with a little practice You’ll make it.
Or You can simply call them I.C.O., it’s ok, they won’t feel offended.
They’re very nice guys, have You seen the video we’ve done for their song “Controversial”?
No?
Damn, I’ve to put it here again…

Take  a look at the end,  You’ll notice there’s a sort of kung-fu fight between one guitar and the face of the singer…
Don’t worry, he survived.

I’m sorry I’m totally unable to insert the music of I.C.O. in this thread, so if You’re curios just click here and You’ll find a jukebox with all the album to listen to.
I won’t tell You how they sounds like, just listen to it and think about a sort of meeting between the italian seventies progressive with hardcore masters like Converge and Botch. But well, I’m totally ignorant in music and I only know a couple of bands, so if You’ve any suggestions for comparing I.C.O. to someone else, just let me know and I’ll be happy to listen to.
And finally, cause we need money to buy heavy drugs, go here to buy the limited totally handprinted vinyl+cd version or, if You’re really parsimonious, the digipack version.
But first listen to it several times, so You’ll feel how cool this new record is!
