Ultha -Pain Cleanses Every Doubt

That’s cold. That’s too damn’ cold. That’s what i kept saying the first time i listened to this album. It’s been a while since we did a black metal post. Today i thought it would be a good idea to talk a bit about it. Ultha is a five piece, black metal band from Cologne, Germany. Back in July they released a new album called ”Pain Cleanses Every Doubt”. Four tracks are included in this album. Over the years we’ ve seen bands blending black metal with different genres like crust, hardcore, post, doom, sludge, e.t.c. Take Downfall of Gaia for example. In my opinion Ultha choose a different path. They keep it more straight-forward black metal. Here what we have is four cold, epic tracks that remind us why black metal became so lovable to us. Surely you’ ll find many norwegian influences here. Definitely though Ultha is not a typical black metal band with only norwegian influences. This band has developed its own identity. That’s my impression. Their vocals are quite impressive. It’s been a while since i’ve heard such great vocals. I mean they gave me the chills. So cold and yet so majestic! Their songs are filled with great riffs. These are songs of great ambience for sure. I liked all of them. Nevertheless i’ve single out one of them. I’m refering to ”Death created Time to grow the things it kills”. What a title for a song! Hands down this is a great song. Probably one of the best i’ve heard in months. Ladies and gentlemen, i’m pretty stoked about this band. Definitely recommended for black metal fans. Here are some links where you can also listen to  ”Pain Cleanses Every Doubt”:
