Bred in the land of ice and fire, Úlfúð are the latest addition to Dark Descent’s flawless, ever-diversifying roster. Championing their personal blend of black and death metal (with emphasis on the former), the band’s debut album Of Existential Distortion uniquely captures the desolate vastness of the volcanic wastelands like only Icelanders can.
Úlfúð’s first full-length is a masterclass in songcraft, showcasing a stunning balance of entrancing atmosphere, haunting melody, and deathless violence. Artist Bahrull Marta was summoned to conjure the breathtaking artwork, whilst photographs by Alma Líf Þorsteinsdóttir adorn the inlay with visions of each offering.
Of Existential Distortion tracklist:
- Where Strange Lights Dance
- Tears of Terra
- Mockery Theatre
- Gods Left Behind
- An Elegy to a Paradise Out of Reach
- Leviathan Dreams
Úlfúð’s (pronounced “ool-wooth”, meaning animosity or hostility) were formed in early 2015 in Reykjavik, Iceland. The band self-released debut EP First Sermon in 2018 and recorded debut Of Existential Distortion in 2020. A release truly worth waiting for!
