It is hard to imagine Tilburg as the heart of darkness. Yet in musical terms, this expression qualifies as an apt description for the homely Dutch city that has spawned such acts as blackened extremists Dodecahedron and rhythmic progressives Textures. Out of this circle, Ulsect has emerged.
The death metal innovators feature guitarist Joris Bonis and drummer Jasper Barendregt from Dodecahedron as well as former Textures bass-player Dennis Aarts. It therefore hardly comes as a surprise that elements of their origins have permeated into Ulsect’s eponymous debut album. You will find high technical precision and prowess woven into dense dissonance and lucent atmosphere.
”Ulsect” embodies relentless post-death metal aesthetics fraught with shifting patterns and the dark tonality. The primeval forces unleashed by pioneers such as Gorguts and Deathspell Omega are violently harnessed to serve a sinister musical purpose. Nightmares transformed into sonic matter.
Ulsect herewith cordially invite you to dare and explore their dark dimension.
