Godz Ov War Productions - 2012 - Poland
What do musicians when only one band is not enough for them? They found a side project! This happened with the Poles GENIUS ULTOR which released some time ago their full-length cd "Dzien Nocy" via Godz Ov War Productions.
After a calm, very avant-garde, minimalistic intro it gets with "Prawo Do Wojny Moim Jest" straight down to the nitty-gritty. Pitch-black Black Metal is now offered. The guys set thereby a mind-blowing pace. A proverbial musical invasion which is powerful and relentless. Dark Black Metal sound frameworks are now and and then relaxed a bit by symphonic sounds and result in a very independent dark mixture. Severe doubleblast drum thunderstorms give the production yet additional energy. Forceful bass lines and partially experimental riffs cater for variety. Short breaks in instrumental and noise realms show the bands' versatility and complexity. The all in all 17 songs are kept pretty short which is however no consequence at this rate. The lyrics are written in Polish language which I consider as a bonus. The screaming growls yet reinforce the brutality. "Dzien Nocy" receives by the fast changes in speed additional vitality. GENIUS ULTOR done here everything properly and produced a very worth hearing cd which is experimental and at the same time reck-solid. I can only recommend the guys!!!
