Lovecraftian black metal meets filthy death metal.
Black metal trio ULTHAR released a menacing orchestration of psychedelic torture with Cosmovore last year and is now set to kick off a lengthy North American Tour in support of the effort. The trek will be supported by none other than label mates SCORCHED, Delaware's filthy death metal unit. 20 Buck Spin will also be repressing both of their latest efforts on sick colored vinyl.
Heaviest of Art had the opportunity to interview ULTHAR, who talk about their spectral release, translating the complex tracks onto the live setting, and the Ian Miller artwork at the forefront of the album. Enjoy the interview while you prepare your minds for the intensity of this upcoming tour.
