Talking Death Metal, Scars and Quarantine With Shelby Lermo From ULTHAR and VASTUM


Shelby Lermo is the guitarist and vocalist for the crust caked Bay Area blackened death metal band Ulthar, who recently released their 2nd album “Providence” on 20 Buck Spin. He is also the guitarist for long running Oakland-based brutal death metal band VASTUM.

I recently spoke with Shelby Lermo about everything from the importance of protests, his early musical influences, the “Big 4” of the Bay Area rock n roll scene, the new Ulthar album, quarantine and much much more.

Check out a killer song from the new Ulthar album here and check out the full interview with Shelby below.
