California’s ULTHAR conjure twisted otherworldly visions and mold them in the aural furnace of blackened death, creating something uniquely arcane and eerie in the hallowed voids of the underground. The trio — Shelby Lermo (Vastum, Extremity), Justin Ennis (Void Omnia, Vale), and Steve Peacock (Spirit Possession, Pandiscordian Necrogenesis, Pale Chalice) — comes together to unleash a feral urgency for dizzying, erratic black metal with a death metal band’s bludgeoning violence.
Thematically heavy on weird, supernatural horror and a bizarre lyrical surrealism, ULTHAR is a difficult-to-classify spectral entity within the sphere of extreme metal.
The Other Records is now stoked to present NIGHTGAUNTS which features the band’s debut material from their 2016 demo along with a newly recorded ambient track. NIGHTGAUNTS is the protean work of the trio, conjuring trancelike visions which effectively drag the listener across a Kadathian hellscape into abysmal worlds. The six intentionally unnamed tracks are featured here for the first time on both compact disc and vinyl, providing the perfect accompaniment for evening ritual seances whilst waiting on the band’s upcoming third and fourth albums (due out next year on 20 Buck Spin).
Attention/Huomio!!! The Other Records crew is working away from Helsinki in November.
All online orders made in November will be sent in early December!
However, the Helsinginkatu 32 shop is still open for 'local pickups' as usual.
