David Vincent - Vocals
Rune "Blasphemer" Eriksen - Guitars
Flo Mounier - Drums

"VLTIMAS has just been introduced by Season of Mist. The extreme metal formation, consisting of frontman David Vincent (ex-Morbid Angel), guitarist Rune 'Blasphemer' Eriksen (ex-Mayhem, Aura Noir, Ava Inferi) and drummer Flo Mounier (Cryptopsy), have completed the work on their debut album which is slated for release early 2019.

Rune Blasphemer Eriksen comments: "Feels like aeons ago since I last ventured into these musical shores, but alas, here we are. Its been an intense year and a half with lots of planning, hard work, personal sacrifice and yeah, traveling. I believe I speak for all 3 of us on this matter. Nevertheless, the beast has been summoned and recorded and I am overly confident about the outcome. Having had the opportunity to work with some of the finest of craftsmen in the genre, the level of experience speaks volumes. The mutual understanding, vision and drive, everything as if for a greater purpose. That's how the end result sounds like to me. A special thank you goes out to longtime partner in crime Michael Berberian and Season Of Mist for the immense belief in this entity, as well as my companion Jaime Gomez Arellano over at Orgone Studio (UK) for a job superbly done! We are VLTIMAS."

This is intriguing. I just realized that between this project and that Nader Sedak album, he's worked with David Vincent and Steve Tucker. Neat.

Super groups never yield great albums.

Especially when the only really "super" musician here is the drummer.

I'd say rarely, but not ... never...

With egos like Vincent and Flo, prepare for Blasphemer to be completely overruled creatively.

I'd say that's true for rock, but there are plenty of good death metal supergroups. Bloodbath, Murder Squad, Chaosbreed, Firespawn, Nader Sadek...all good bands.

As for this band, I'm interested but skeptical. On one hand, I consider David Vincent to be one of the most talented vocalists/frontmen in all of extreme metal, his performance and delivery on those early albums is absolutely top-notch, some of the greatest growling ever recorded...he had such a badass, commanding presence on those four albums which was so distinctive and unique, he was a real trendsetter for death (and also black) metal. It's obviously cool to see him back at it again playing extreme metal (I was actually hoping I Am Morbid would do originals :lol:). That said, I'm pretty iffy on his modern vocal style...he's nowhere near the Chris Barnes or Karl Willetts level of bad but he definitely doesn't have any grit or depth to his voice anymore and his delivery is lacking in the power & conviction that made his old work amazing. That said, perhaps this style will work better for this band than it did for those old MA songs...

certainly an intriguing posse

Sounds interesting. I like Vincent and Blaspheemer but dunno who the drummer is.

Anyone know why Blaspheemer left Mayhem?

:lol: Blasphemer, always sounding a bit appologetic or uncertain about his endeavours. He kind of responded that way when I asked him about Aura Noir, too.

Actually think he is at this point the most creative musician in that group, but who knows -- not holding my breath anyway.

Flo is from Cryptopsy if you haven't already googled it. You've heard them I hope!

Three words, kiddo: None So Vile.

That track sounds poser AF. It's actually sad to see Blasphemer teaming up with those two fucking posers.
