The most amazing thing on Converging Sins is the fact that – although it has only five tracks – the album is very long, but never monotonous. With a highly funereal, but deeply atomic energy, you feel powerfully motivated, happy and fulfilled while listening to it. Although the songs per se have little no variations on the rhythm, you are stricken by it with such an intense force, that this powerful album makes you evaluate all the goals, objectives and purposes of the genre. With a high degree of poetic embellishment, the songs on Converging Sins are adorned with an appreciative beauty, designed to capture the instant of an abnormal darkness that covers the world by the strike of a marvelous omniscience.
Abundant and serene in poetic and reflexive moments as well, the album reinterprets in a calmer sound sphere the most intricate elements of the genre, taking all the time in the world to properly filter each and every component capable of reenergizing the time and the melodic layers upon which the exceedingly detailed sound structure is built upon. An album to listen carefully, understand properly, comprehend, appreciate in a very relaxed manner, the black metal of Ultha is more encapsulated in a very distant time, and comes to us in a very distant haze, stranded upon the unique philosophy of a wonderful nature, that carefully filters black metal as an individual expression of the soul. They are of such a unique brand, that definitely they will not be understood by a handful of metal enthusiasts out there. On a very mature line of work that deciphers cold worlds in serene, but dark atmospheres, they consecrate the union of their own sound system to a universe in constant motion, doomed to be neglected by the endless sorrow of inexistent times, which firmly relies upon a surface of endless unraveling sound.
Despite the fact that the album is a little more than one hour long, the sound structure and the rhythmic components are very objective, and designed to unveil a purpose. Brilliantly executed, consistent and displaying a very peculiar brand of atmospheric black metal, Converging Sins is a very intriguing album, that will instantly captivate an audience, with its strong, incisive, slow, somber and elusive soundscape, filled with the antagonistic demise taken directly from a world of shadows.
