WE HATE YOU AND HOPE YOU DIE
THIS DARK REIGN
Don’t look for Ultralord to start endorsing Hallmark anytime soon, as this wickedly scornful quartet and its abrasively anguished eight-track offering is not only fueled by an incensed view of the world, but also some of the finest sludge-ridden metal heard in a long time. Hailing from Ohio and boasting members of Rue, Fistula, and Rune amongst others in its ranks, from the opening din of “Wizard Pimp”, your best bet is to cling on to whatever is near and pray that the maelstrom of metallic might leaves you unscathed. Unfortunately, with songs containing serpentine vocal deliveries and seething rhythms found on the over the top titled “Pussy Witch” and the bombastically hypnotic approaches of the deliberately measured “Negative D” and “Roach Detector”, there’s nary a chance of you ever being the same after playing WE HATE YOU AND HOPE YOU DIE.
