Usually when bands say they are Death/Black, it means "Death Metal that's not downtuned, plus we like to wear paint." But Ulthar, who are not a Lovecraftian band despite the name, are mixing the styles at a more fundamental level. This has Death Metal crunch and the richly layered tremolo riffing of Black Metal, while the songwriting has the pummeling approach of Death. The compositions are a little unfocused, but the riffs keep you interested. The vocals switch between a solid growl and a screech that is more iffy and lacks conviction, but overall this is interesting and inventive enough to keep your attention.
