Providence is the forthcoming new full length from Bay Area blackened death trio, ULTHAR. Slated to drop on June 12th via 20 Buck Spin, the follow-up to 2018’s Cosmovore debut catapults the band’s signature brand of furiously-paced, inverted death metal and scathing angular blackness into new diseased realms of chaos and audio sickness.

The unyielding ULTHAR attack doubles down on Providence with figures becoming more sickening and shapes more savage. An immensity like spiraling ancient monoliths too tall to comprehend and bending inward upon themselves envelops adherents to this dominion. Duly diabolic voices guide this odyssey through the incongruous caverns of absurdity, obscure texts, and manifold vitriol.

Featuring Shelby Lermo (Vastum, Extremity), Justin Ennis (Void Omnia, Vale), and Steve Peacock (Mastery, Pandiscordian Necrogenesis, Pale Chalice), ULTHAR’s Providence was recorded by Greg Wilkinson (Brainoil, Deathgrave) at Earhammer Studios, mastered by Adam Tucker (False, Thou, Obsequiae) at Signaturetone Recording and comes swathed again in the staggering art renderings of renown British fantasy illustrator Ian Miller with layout by Ross Sewage (Exhumed, Impaled).

In advance of the release of ProvidenceULTHAR unveils opening psalm “Churn” for public feasting, the band noting bluntly, “We welcome you back to the transcosmic gulf.”


ULTHAR – “Churn” (From Providence LP, 2020)

Providence will be released on CD, LP, cassette, and digital formats. For physical preorder bundles go to THIS LOCATION. For digital orders go HERE where “Through Downward Dynasties” can be streamed.

Releasing at a time where our own world has devolved into a surrealistic nightmare of viral trepidation and encased solitude, ULTHAR’s Providence becomes a prescient view into the strange paradoxes that only months ago seemed unbelievable but now all too possible. Where horizons cease, where grace is dead, where nothing lives, so be it amen. Fans of Absu, Atrocity, Demilich, Immortal, Gorguts, Krallice, Blood Incantation, Sulphur Aeon, and the like pay heed.
