Retaliation | Ulvehunger (bandcamp.com)

When merited veterans of Norwegian death / black metal conspire to breathe life into a new entity, you know you are in for a real treat.

Ulvehunger’s Retaliation – the outcome of a joint effort by L.J. Balvaz (Balvaz, Cadaver, Disgusting) and K.B. Fletcher (Disgusting) together with none other than the equally legendary Frost (Satyricon, 1349) and Anders Odden (Cadaver, Order, Satyricon live) – has Norwegian death / black metal written all over it.

Tracks like „Desecrator,“ „Consumed by Hate,“ or „Rise From the Shadows“ convince with memorable riffs that are razor-sharp and remorselessly attacking yet melodious and melancholic at the same time. Pushed ahead by Frost’s unmistakable drumming and L.J. Balvaz’s scornful sermons, Retaliation is a dynamic, ravenous beast of an album.

Retaliaton was recorded in Tomb Studio (Order, Witch Club Satan) and produced by Anders Odden, with mastering by Patrick W. Engel at Temple Of Disharmony.

Ulvehunger, despite being steeped in the tradition of classic outputs by compatriots Carpathian Forest, Darkthrone, or Gorgoroth, deliver without being a carbon-copy of said bands. Ulvehunger have managed to create a worthy addition to the endless list of masterpieces from Norway no adherent of the genre can afford to miss out on.
