We forget to tell You that we are back!
Aren’t You happy?
What?
No, no,no… we didn’t go on holiday on a secret Island in the middle of nowhere…
Well, we did, but just for a few days…
01

We’ve been on a lot of ferries, it’s true… But we’re back.
And even if it seems like that, we didn’t drive it.

03

We didn’t spend our time drinking beer.
Well, at least not so much.

02

Neither we took good care of ourselves…

04

And we didn’t  go out to try to figure out what happened to some super heroes now they’re too old to continue in fighting evil…

05

We tried to eat some brain (yes, this is a cake!!!) to see if it could improve our memory…

07

Or we had some powerful drinking…
But the result was not so good…

8

Surely we met good friends.
And we had a very good time on the road.

06

We basically spent the entire month of october with our band Ufomammut, playing all over Europe.
That’s what we did.

09

But we’re back!
And even if it took about 10 days to write some posts here, we’re ready to show You some great works we’re realizing right now.
There’ll be posters, illustrations and posters again.
We’re already printing 2 of them in these hours, for 2 gigs that will happen here in Italy during this weekend.
Name of the band?
We’ll tell You more in the next days, once the posters will be finished.
For now, just a sneak peak of them.

Curious to see more?
Don’t worry, we’ll be back very soon!

Very nice!

Europe

Posted in **News**, Posters, Prints with tags , , , , , , on April 17, 2015 by malleus

What a period!
We’ve worked so much in the last weeks that we’re pretty exhausted.
In a good way, of course.
We’ve printed a lot of posters, worked on plenty of illustrations, covers and t-shirt designs… a lot to do, really.
We’ve a lot of posters coming out in the next days, while we’ll be on the road for an european tour with Ufomammut, our band.
You can come and say hi, of course, during one of the next gigs (check them out here).
And if You’re not in Europe, You can come and say hi next month while we’ll be in the States and Canada.
C’mon, don’t be shy!
So, as I was saying, we’ve a lot of posters coming out in the next days and weeks.
You probably already saw some of them (like Desert fest in London and the Blues Explosion US tour).
Then we have Asymmetry Festival, the Black Cobra, ASG, Mudhoney and more.
Today we want to show You the tour poster for Ufomammut’s new album ECATE.
It’s a very very sparkling print, popping out of the paper, lots of glitters and metallic inks.
It’s a representation of the ancient goddess Hecate.
And it looks like this:

ecate

ecate01

ecate2

ecate03

 

It’s a very precious print, a sacred object, I must say.
We’re very happy with it, it came out exactly the way we had it in mind.
If You like it, You can grab Your copy from HERE.
Or You can come at one of our shows, of course.
Stay tuned and keep following us on things like Facebook and Instagram for more news about the new prints!

The new Prodigy is a great album!

Some news

Posted in **News**, Music, Posters, Prints with tags , , , on March 13, 2015 by malleus

Hope You won’t be angry with us if we didn’t write anymore on the blog.
It’s been a very hectic period and we worked very hard on a lot of project and really didn’t find the time to put our fingers on the keyboard to share what was happening with You.
Of course, there are a lot of other “social” way to reach You, but it’s fun to be on this blog.
So, little by little, we’re gonna show You what’s going on at malleusdelic headquarter.
And what has happened there in the last weeks, of course.
Before showing You the new poster coming out in the next days, we want to remind You that Ufomammut (the band featuring Poia and Urlo with Vita) has a new record coming out in a couple of weeks and You can preorder one of the limited edition vinyls going HERE.
Moreover, I’m happy to announce we’ll be in the States and Canada in May (again, with Ufomammut… but never knows… we could be there as Malleus as well… You know we’re magic people!).
And of course, we’ll be in Europe too!
Check the dates HERE.
Said that, let’s go with the new print coming next week.
It’s for a Seth Avett and Jessica Lea Manfield gig in Nashville.
They’re touring the States supporting the new album in which they cover 12 Elliott Smith songs.
So, we took inspiration from a picture we found on internet of Elliot playing a mask on his face with his hands.
So we decided to pay homage to him, in our way.
The poster is on a light cream thick paper, it’s a 6 colors handprinted silkscreen and it’s a limited edition of 130 pieces.
First color is a red ink.

Red

Then we worked on a shade from a metallic green to a gold.

03

The third screen has been for another shade, from a scarlet red to a blue.

04

05

And finally we used a dark brown to define the image.

So, stay tuned for more!

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!

Canada

Posted in Events, Miscellanea, Music with tags , , , , on May 22, 2014 by malleus

We’re back from a weekend in Canada, in Quebec, to be more precise.
Well, we’re back since a few days but I was into a sort of Jet-lag cloud and I was not able to think that much to write silly things on the blog.
Now I’m ready to fill this page of a few nice images and thoughts.
We’ve been there for a gig of our band Ufomammut, but it’s been so great we’ve got so many inspiration that it’ll reflect a lot on future Malleus stuff.
We played at FIMAV (Festival International de Musique actuelle de Victoriaville) and it’s been rad.
To be honest, it didn’t started so good, cause one of us (guess who…) doesn’t like to fly that much.

01

Even if it’s nice to see out of the window You’re floating in the sky. Just don’t think about it…

02

After lots of hours we arrived in Canada. Our ass was squared, we were totally exhausted but the first impression was very good, super nice people and great bridges. Then we felt almost asleep…

03

…and we dreamt about big trucks till we arrived in Victoriaville, small town close to Montreal (well… close is not the right word, but yes, not so far)

04

After a morning spent fighting against jet-lag and headaches we prepared for the show and we played at midnight (that was 6 in the morning for us…)

09b

06

But it’s been soooooo cool. Great people and a totally warm crowd.
Then, after a little rest, we had a great visit to Montreal.
We met our friend Marc of Image Folie merch and he’s been our Cicero, our tourist guide!
And we saw so many things of Montreal, it’ll be pretty difficult to remember them all.
We started from the Canadian Space Agency and the KTM factory, to reach the Biosphere of the 1967 Expo.

07

And it was not the only big ball we saw, cause we also visited a giant orange one

12

And it was full of orange juice! After a ride in the F1 circuit…

08

…we entered the main City…

09

…to see a long file in front of Schwartz, where people can eat the beat meat of Quebec.

10

And You can also decide to suicide Yourself adding some chili…

11

We had a pilgrimage to Saint Joseph where You can use Your knees for the steps to see the heart of the founder…

13

So we decided it was time to check old bridges and especially…

16

…to see the Mount Saint Hilaire, where the UFOs are surely hidden in the lake on top.

18b

And this 6 fingered cat knows something about it for sure.

17

So we thanked Marc…

18

… and we went back to Victoriaville where a metal night was waiting for us.

19

Unfortunately, all this happiness made us so sad the day after, that we all cried before leaving for the airport.

20

And when we took the plane…

21

… we couldn’t imagine we were going to get lost in space!

22

I always said airplanes are dangerous… yes…

Posted in **News**, Music with tags , , on April 6, 2014 by malleus

We’ve been out of the studio for 10 days, we hit the road with our band Ufomammut and we had a great time on a short tour leading us in Greece, Bulgaria, Romania and Slovenia.
It’s been a great experience, we’ve discovered a part of Europe we never visited before.
In a very short time we saw Vulcanos…

ASG

Posted in **News**, Music, Posters, Prints with tags , , on March 25, 2014 by malleus

It’s been a printing weekend.
We’ve been very very busy lately, working on a lot of different projects, from posters to videos.
And taking advantage of a rainy boring weekend, we decided it was time to print a lot of stuff.
First of all we finished the silkscreening of a poster we’re doing in collaboration with our friends at Dark City Gallery.
Soon You’ll know more, don’t worry.
Then, once finished, we put our hands of the posters for the american band ASG coming to Europe in April to kick ass.
We’re working with them since a lot of years, we’ve already done a poster in the past and 2 record covers.
So, it’s been great to work on this new design for them.
But let’s see it in details.
We’ve realized a run of 185 copies.
150 will be on the merch table of the band during their tour around Europe, starting on the 10th of april from Roadburn festival and ending in London on the 26th of the same month at Desert fest (and well, we’ve another silkscreen to do for it!)
The other 35 copies (well a little less) will be on our webstore once the tour will be over.
We started with a red ink.

asg_01

 

We thought about the name ASG like something that You can read from upside down and viceversa.
The A becomes a G and the G becomes an A.
Obviously the S remains the same.

asg_02
From this idea we moved on thinking about a poster You can watch from 2 different perspectives, like the ASG inscription.
And it had to recall the cover art of the BLOOD DRIVE record we did a few months ago.

ASG_BD

Two women, a red and a blonde one, almost in a symmetrical and specular vision.
Anyway.
After red color we worked on a silver metallic ink.

asg_03

And a gold came after

asg_04

asg_05

The last ink, the fifth one, has been a black.

asg_06

And this is how the poster looks like.

asg_07

asg_10

asg_11

asg_by_malleus

 

What You think?
The print is very strong in person, the gold ink works both as shadow and light.

Next print coming will be Desert fest.
But we’ll have to wait a little cause we’re leaving the studio this thursday.
We’ll be on tour with Ufomammut in some Countries we’ve never been.
We’ll be in Roma (and well… we’ve already been there…), then in Greece!
Athens and Thessaloniki.
Looking forward to be there.
Then we’re visiting Sofia in Bulgaria and Bucarest and Timisoara in Romania.
After one day of relax on the Balaton lake in Hungary, we’ll be in Lubljana (Slovenia) for the last gig.
Check all the venues where we’ll be here, on the Ufomammut’s website.
And come to say hi.

So… see You on the road!

BACK TO THE FUTURE

Posted in **News**, Events, Posters, Prints with tags , , , on February 5, 2014 by malleus

Finally…
I feel relieved.
After a long time and a lot of struggling, we’re ready to announce we’ve a new Malleus store.
You can’t even imagine how much we had to fight to make it happen, to have it ready again.
It’ll be on line starting this friday 7th of February.

From friday to sunday included, using the coupon “WEAREBACK”, You’ll have a 15% discount on everything You’ll buy.
It’ll work only if You’ll log in.
So, be ready for the new store!

But… friday is not only the day we’ll have the store out again.
It’s also the day our band Ufomammut will have its 15 years birthday.
Damn, we’re getting very old.

Anyway, let’s be happy.
We’ll have a gig for celebrate our 15 years here in Italy.
At Bloom, in Mezzago, close to Milano.
And we’ve printed the Magickal Mastery tour poster for the event.
This design merges all the covers of the ufomammut’s discography in one single drawing.
It’s a 6 colors on 5 screens poster.
On black paper.
120 pieces limited edition.

01

02

We started with a metallic silver ink.

03

Then we needed a white color for stars and skulls.

04

Then gold metallic ink and a shade from iridescent blu to iridescent silver

05

06

Last color has been a red ink.

07

08

We decided to put only the name of the band and the number 15.
Where?
Check the image below:-)

And this is the final design.

ufomammut

And of course, this print will be on sale on friday at the show and on our webstore!
