"With this next release I’m bending the usual parameters of this SHADES OF BLACK series, because Ueberos have more death metal in their DNA than black, but the album is such a big and pleasant surprise that I didn’t want to delay slobbering all over it with words.
Ueberos are from Żory, Poland, and their debut album, Tormented By Faith, was released on February 10. According to Metal Archives, three of the band’s four members are also in a death metal band named Inset, who released an EP in 2012.
Drawing influence from such bands as Decapitated, Immolation, and Morbid Angel, Uerberos deliver high-speed savagery with impressive skill. The seething riffs are cloaked in an atmosphere of grim ferocity, matched by an equally barbaric vocal performance that’s both bestial and imperious. The jet-speed obliteration of the drumming is yet another striking feature of the songs, threatening to steal the show at every turn with rapid changes (and great cymbal work).
While the dominant sensation of the music is one of supremely sinister and feral frenzy, the band also astutely break the breathtaking torrent of their sonic assault with dismal digressions (though they don’t last long) and feed the blaze with head-spinning arpeggios. The technical pyrotechnics on display are jaw-dropping, but the songs are really well-constructed, too.
The album is, in one word, astonishing."
