Consisting of brothers Paul and Benn McGregor and with additional sonic malice from Mickey J Ellis (Electric Bass) and Paul Simmons (Guitars), Ulterior release their malevolent second album entitled; ‘The Bleach Room’ - a dramatic showcase of Ulterior’s infamous brand of psychotropic overdrive.
The colour, the contrast and the saturation are running on full blast and a burgeoning powerhouse of ice-cold motor rhythms blend together synthesizer-hacked landscapes forming a glittering and completely uncompromising ten tracks of static-laced , dark, techno-pop; panoramic and mute.
No magic or “vibes” are used in the recording.
This is man and machines, soulless and pure.
‘The Bleach Room’ viciously scratches out the lines between synthesizer and guitars, between metallic drums and aural assault.
The lyrics commanding an urgent authority that fixate around the poison of supernatural ideologies on the human and no; your god does not escape a stoning.
Ulterior ask the questions you are afraid to ask yourself.
Recorded and produced by Robert Harder (Kylie Minogue, Neneh Cherry, David Byrne and Brian Eno), it is an album of forceful ambition and naked intent that stands to be loved or hated in an unequivocal Ulterior fashion.
