Ulvedharr - Inferno XXXIII

Inferno XXXIII
by Craig Rider at 18 May 2023, 10:44 AM

Metal maniacs, rejoice! I am proud to present to you: ULVEDHARR; signed via Scarlet Records, hailing from Italian grounds - performing Death/Thrash Metal, on their 5th full-length studio album entitled: "Inferno XXXIII" (released April 21st, 2023). Since formation in 2011; the quartet in question have only 2 EPs entitled: "Viking tid" (released June 10th, 2012), and "Legion" (released July 27th, 2016) …on top of 5 full-length studio albums in their discography so far entitled: "Swords Of Midgard" (released January 22nd, 2013), "Ragnarök" (released December 1st, 2014), "Total War" (released August 18th, 2017), "World Of Chaos" (released May 24th, 2019) & this here 5th offering entitled: "Inferno XXXIII" in their discography so far of which I am introduced to. 10 tracks ranging around 36:28… ULVEDHARR arranges an intricately designed formula on some heavy-hitting Death/Thrash Metal amalgamations.

Opening up with a blistering barrage frenzy in bulldozing calamity; a boisterously bouncy fabrication in thudding pandemonium unleashes an amplified heft in rampantly rompy ramification of ruthless sturdiness on tight, punchline grooves in "A Full Reload Of Fear". A bludgeoning grind forges a rip, roaring shred of monolithic tempo and concretely gritty firepower expertise that rumbles speakers with razor-sharp rifts that ramify with this monstrously meaty volatility, surging through with visceral tonality on technical mayhem that momentously stampedes with rambunctious piledrives from hammering drummer Mike Bald. A primitively raw pummel pulverizes you with rapidly swift nimbleness & striking pursuit of savagely sinister substance that's profusely robust whilst sonically seamless for good sport… profound within the malicious renegade of "Wasteland".

"Revenge Loop" utilises versatile vehemence with steamrolling trembles & quintessential virtuosities of bombastically barbaric brutality, belting a clobbering foundation in bestial chaos that's thumps out some stompy but berserking elements in implementing a killer maelstrom malignance with sulphurous stridency from audible bassist Markus Ener. This thrashing overdose salubriously masquerades with weighty rhythms that thump rigorously with vigorous solidities on virulently venomous slabbiness that's most dense, fierce and dexterously dynamic. Jack arms a brimming strife on hybrid experimentation and gnarly distortion, within songs like "Dagon"/"Master Liar". Harnessing a crescendo building impact, this tremolo snare of rampaging hookage grips a hardened distinction in distinguished haste all the while distilling a crunchy but archaic archetype in instrumental songwriting musicianship that's most symbolic & radically relentless.

"The Edge" & Eternal Attack" throttles with full force impulse, forging an intensely immersive finesse in brisk haste… as an all guns blazing ricochet rollicks with this firing all cylinder chug, galloping and frolicking with some synthesized tones… while vocalist Ark Nattlig Ulv surges with throaty raspiness with these deep guttural growls amongst a hardened grumble with these pugnaciously malicious grunts in which manifests with hardcore beats and groovy aesthetics that transitions with rumbling reverb while thrashing matriculation rattles through with strumming execution in which will make you want to stamp your feet in which merges with an insatiable urge to want to break chairs over other chairs in a wrathful rage of oppressive tendencies that will make you feel great whilst maniacally diabolic.

"Their Game" & the penultimate banger "A New God" articulates in a flamboyant systematic on rugged revs that showcase persistent perseverance & thrilling groove-bomb assimilation, as an infernal piercing of unrelenting malevolence attributes at an exhilarating ride of trampling raze that will bop heads and feet in no time. Until the overall concluding epic "Oblivion" does exactly as it says on the tin, blows brains and tears through you with rolling synergy, injecting an infectiously venomous volley of flexibly fundamental stability that's most enjoyably bashing. …bottom line; I am compelled to say that ULVEDHARR most surely outdone themselves with "Infernal XXXIII", an experience and discovery worthy of smacking through should you fancy a justifiable slice of this subgenre, as a Death/Thrash Metal prowess intervenes an entertaining but bashful listen through & through - do check it out.
