Anthronomicon

by Ulthar

supported by

Lorenzo A labyrinthine exploration of the most otherworldly aspects of death metal and black metal's caustic intermixing. Filled with nuanced structures that veer into a multitude of directions with a focused sound, there is a noticeable intent to pull each genre further along into a new world. Presenting mazes of songs that unfurl and restrict in tandem before spiraling to another place, Ulthar stand at the forefront of what can be accomplished in extreme metal.

Bart Just relentless chaotic death metal of the highest order. The songs are easier to consume here, but I think the long-form album might have the best riffs/moments between the two. Still a great album though. Favorite track: Flesh Propulsion.

Metallurgical Fire Cosmovore wasn’t heavy enough or filthy enough for me. Providence was much improved. Anthronomicon is a stellar death metal album that will be up there with the top releases of the year. Ulthar is now competing with the elite bands in the genre. Favorite track: Coagulation of Forms.

about

Over the course of their first two albums, ‘Cosmovore’ and ‘Providence’, Ulthar carved out a unique niche on the spectrum of underground metal, forging a grotesquely elegant hybrid of Technical Death Metal alchemy and Black Metal’s stinging blizzard winds, all with the acerbic color of the absurdist’s brush. Nearly 3 years on from ‘Providence’, a burst of deadly creativity has resulted in TWO new albums, to be released simultaneously.

‘Anthronomicon’ embodies the continued progression of Ulthar’s mastery over its art - always evolving, refining and pushing forward. From the opening blasts and twisting mania of ‘Cephalopohre’ Ulthar baffle with angular warped riffage, dipping in and out of various dimensional spheres. Off-kilter multi-directional turns veer swiftly and violently as though about to come apart at the seams only to reshape again and again into ever more monumental forms. Each of Anthronomicon’s 8 tracks represent a fractious piece of a larger puzzle, each a maze unto itself that when taken together allow one to traverse this inverted surrealist conundrum.

Having reached albums three and four concurrently, and having many other bands and albums under their collective belts, the three seasoned players that comprise Ulthar have not been content to play things straightforward, to be just another Death Metal band among thousands. Rather the band continuously seeks and executes with more compulsive complexity, more nuance and in pursuit of a persistent ascension to a transcendent and incongruous world beyond the mundane; a place of euphoric exultation and bewildering awe.
