From the darkness, UADA (meaning haunted in latin) emerges breathing the spirit of the original 90’s Black Metal wave. Since 2014, this Portland, Oregon four-piece has used a unique approach to combine raw black metal and spectral melodies. "Devoid of Light" rekindles a flame and resurrects spirits from the past in pure blackness. Self-recorded by the band & then mastered by Joel Grind (Toxic Holocaust). It features the artwork of Kris Verwimp and band photography by Peter Beste.
"dark waves of guitar melody that sweep through the music like a winter gale (and sometimes drift like a grave-side mist)" - NO CLEAN SINGING
“Uada is one of the most interesting & exciting bands coming out of Portland these days” – John Haughm (ex-PILLORIAN & AGALLOCH)
"diabolical and deep, like a better-informed and more melodic version of De Mysteriis-era Mayhem. The result scratches the infernal itch perfectly, and will hopefully be embrace by both old- and new-schoolers alike." - METALSUCKS
