"We Hate You and Hope You Die" (This Dark Reign; 2006)

Reviewed by Mike SOS

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), Ultralord will quite simply kick your ass here. Your best bet while listening to this CD is to cling on to whatever is near -- from the opening din of "Wizard Pimp" through the end of this CD -- and pray that the maelstrom of metallic might leaves you unscathed right 

You may never be the same after the 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." But you may not mind, either.

Rating Guide:

A classic. This record will kick your ass.

Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.

So-so. You've heard better.

Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.

Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
