Biography

Despite boasting an appellation better suited to a top-shelf flagellation magazine than an ear-scorching rock crew, the Los Angeles quintet Ultraspank pummel away with uncompromising metal belligerence. Their sophomore effort after changing their name from Indica in 1996 is a quantum leap forward from their eponymous 1998 debut. Leather-lunged vocalist Pete Murray careens from harmonic restraint to full-tilt throat abuse on the devastating “Crack.” Incubus DJ Chris Kilmore joins the throng on “Stuck,” which also benefits from the contributions of former Ozzy Osbourne knob-twiddler Peter Collins. Ultimately, Ultraspank relies on all-conquering force to steamroller listeners into abject submission.

————————

Ultraspank was a metal band in the 1990s and early 2000s. Their original name was Spank, but due to legal reasons they were forced to change it. During an interview with Rob Zombie, Zombie suggested they should call themselves “Ultra” Spank. This is noted in the liner notes of their self titled debut.

Their second album, “Progress” came out in 2000, and didn’t sell very well due to a lack of promotion. After being dropped by their record label, they split up, and guitarist Neil Godfrey joined downthesun to record their self-titled debut album. Before the album’s release, Godfrey exited downthesun and joined Motograter for a brief period before starting Lo-Pro with former vocalist Pete Murray (not to be confused with Australian singer Pete Murray).

    I agree "Progress" is an awesome album. Check out these guys, I think the singer sounds similar to Lo Pro/Ultrspank's singer. https://theadvaitaconcept.bandcamp.com/album/the-ratio

    It's really too bad that these guys weren't more known. They're easily one of the best bands of this genre I've ever come across. "Progress" is a phenomenal album.

    3xtreme is where I first heard them, way back in like 1999 or 2000. I gave their first album a listen ages ago and liked it a lot more than their final album for some reason. Gonna have to give them both a complete listen again and see how I feel about it now.

    I am not a huge fan of such kind of music, however, "Where" is a masterpiece.

    These guys need more exposure, they're definately too good to have me not notice them for this long.

    is there any way that I can change the album art for Progress? 'cause it's really wrong and not the correct cover... this is: http://image.allmusic.com/00/amg/cov200/dre100/e162/e16264q69vp.jpg

    Not "Nu-Metal" to me, please not more nu-metal shits! Ultraspank is more alt. rock than "nu-metal" crap Awesome band, and sometimes the voice is similar to maynard keenan voice, sometimes only sometimes XDDD.
