about

Exploring the embodiment of seven vices and its seven opposite virtues as representative facets of Man, «Vicious Consolation / Virtuous Totality» includes 18 micro-discharges of a grindcore, crust and sludge hybrid, powerful enough to leave any extreme music lover with their jaw dropped. Sounding like Nasum playing Entombed covers in Iron Monkey's rehearsal space, but with its own identity already developed over the past six years, UTOPIUM are much more than the simple sum of its influences. And they don’t even need half an hour to prove they have more than enough capacity to affirm themselves, once and for all, as one of the most explosive and compelling proposals out of the extreme underground of the XXI century.
