Ulveblod is the apocalyptic new project of Vitriol, best known for his work as the guitarist of Dutch black metal band Nihill. Since the passing of Nihill’s vocalist M. last year, Vitriol has been crafting a new and terrifying album: Omnia Mors Aequat. I’ve spent a fair bit of time with this release, and I still don’t really know what to think of it. Let me warn you straight off the bat, listening to Omnia Mors Aequat is like eating a bowl of charcoal, but with your ears. Any moments of beauty are few and far between, and yet there’s something extremely powerful about it. 

In its chaos and confusion, Omnia Mors Aequat becomes the creature with seven heads and ten horns, it becomes the fire, the shadow, the wound. Its stark abstractness makes it unbearably real and so tangible it’s frightening. It becomes more than music, more than noise – it’s larger than life, and somehow simultaneously has torn itself into pieces so small you could brush them off with the back of your hand and send them flying into insignificance.
