Biography

Vltimas is a death metal supergroup consisting of three legends in their own right: the ultimate death metal voice of David Vincent (I Am Morbid, ex-Morbid Angel) has joined forces with guitarist Rune ‘Blasphemer’ Eriksen (Aura Noir, ex-Ava Inferi, ex-Mayhem) and human octopus Flo Mounier (Cryptopsy). Their full-length debut ‘Something Wicked Marches in’ can stand right alongside Morbid Angel’s ‘Blessed Are the Sick’ and ‘Altars of Madness’ in terms of quality and relevance. The musicianship on this record is of course undisputed, but that is not why ‘Something Wicked’ stands out. Although this is their first outing, Vltimas sounds like a band that has played together for years. With this amount of talent in a band that takes a level of selflessness rarely seen in a supergroup. As a result, each member has ample opportunity to shine. During last year’s festival season the trio left total annihilation in their wake so be prepared for a death metal masterclass. (#GMM20)
