Ultra Silvam - The Sanctity Of Death

Ultra Silvam
The Sanctity Of Death
by Craig Rider at 14 April 2022, 2:58 PM

Metal maniacs, rejoice! I am proud to present to you: ULTRA SILVAM; signed via Shadow Records, hailing from Swedish grounds - performing Black Metal, on their sophomoric album entitled: “The Sanctity Of Death” (released February 25th, 2022).

Since formation in 2015; the trio in question have a self-titled Demo (released March 2017), an Live Album entitled: “Live After Death” (released September 7th, 2021) & 2 full-length Studio Albums entitled: “The Spearwound Salvation” (released March 22nd, 2019) amongst this here record that I am introduced to entitled: “The Sanctity Of Death”. 8 tracks ranging at around 31:46; ULTRA SILVAM arranges an intricately designed formula on some heavy-hitting Black Metal developments.

Opening up with this riveting rumble of reverberating trembling and frolicking distortion; “Dies Irae” begins the record with rampantly rompy mayhem, stampeding speakers with thrashy momentum & piledriving persistency. This razor-sharp yet wildly rushing remedy belts a clobbering harmony in a barrage frenzy of blistering chimes, impactfully bulldozing eardrums with trailblazing yet volatile meatiness and bludgeoning blasphemy. Nothing short of sonically seamless rampages right off the bat enforces heads a berserking but vicious time, injecting an infectiously monolithic surge of strident tempo & melodious, choir-esque possession. This steamrolling piercing of vibrating yet punchy weight from consisting guitarist O.R. belts a choppy foundation in primitively raw & rough potency that shreds with rapidly swift nimbleness while thudding out pulsating substance to boot. Grinding away with persevering pursuits of organic barbarity and diabolical but cavernous roars, the audible bassist M.A. flickers his axe with symbolic satanism & ritualistic sturdiness. The vocals soar with throaty raspiness, aggressive gutturals and grunty growls that unleash ruthless pandemonium to boot.

Sodom Vises Himlafärd” distills a dynamic dexterity in vibrant solidity, where synthetic maelstrom mounts with towering stability & synergistic pugnancy. Volatile revs rift with gnarly distortion and boisterously bouncy jumpiness, while vigorous tonality monstrously rips with amplified adrenaline amongst a fiercely impulsive heft of malicious onslaught profusely. Unearthing this otherworldly swerve of thrustful but deathly horror, an ominously jarring manifold of hypnotizing bellows grants a towering slab of solid tremolo effects and crescendos that steamroll with maddening results. The titular track ramifies with outbursting slays on grinding laceration and killer snares that scour with a borderline foundation on throttling grooves in which rollicks with malevolent creation absolute.

Tintinnabuli Diaboli” is a brief interlude of sulfurous melody, where speed-driven grittiness concretely blasts out these mountainous yet remorselessly salubrious slabs within “Förintelsens Andeväsen Del II”. Intense experimentation in foreboding firepower finesse contrasts distinguished craftsmanship agility, forging a burly fabrication in ghastly retribution & rebellion. A blackened tone overarches with vicious sacrilege within the radically wicked songwriting memorability of the track “Black Soil Fornication”, this one has a thumpy wrath of steely stompiness to it in which maniacally continues a boundary of frolics and gallops with smirky slams from hammering drummer O.R.. Everyone empowers bodies with this evil grumble that just outbursts with addicting fornification totally, making this one my favorite for sure.

The penultimate banger “Incarnation Reverse” barks with wrathful abomination, adhering a smoldering smear of unruly subjugation & savagely sinister filth, layer upon layer with all guns blazing, firing on all cylinders that make one want to break chairs over other chairs in no time. While the overall concluding epic “Of Molded Bread And Rotten Wine” unapologetically spreads a contagious disease within souls to unleash an inhuman bolt of brutish incineration tenfold.

Bottom line; I am compelled to say that ULTRA SILVAM certainly outdone themselves with this one, it’s a Black Metal spectacle that should be listened to should you fancy a dark 30 minutes of enjoyably entertaining blackness and mystifying respite. Worthy of replaying & spinning a good handful of times, do check it out - surely a discovery to keep note of.
