5.0 out of 5 stars Don't listen to the haters January 20, 2005
Format:Audio CD
This cd is amazing; don't listen to these haters. I mean, zrayed listens to Breaking Benjamin, and trying to communicate with him would be like trying to communicate with a fetus: he's dumb and wouldn't understand anything more than "mommy". These guys are not generic at all, their style of nu-metal is way beyond anything else in the genre. The song writing abilities are amazing, and the way the bass and guitars blend together is simply amazing and produces a great sound. And me being a drummer, I can truly appreciate the drumming on this cd. "Acceptance" and "Finding My Place" shine with complex, techno-influenced beats that take great skill to replicate.

Some reviewers said the lyrics are all about "I hate life, it sucks, my parents suck". You obviously have not read the lyrics then. Zo Vizza writes amazingly good, deep lyrics with metaphorical imagery that skates circles around Breaking Benjamin and all other crappy nu-metal bands (read "Never the Culprit", "Slip In Sin", and "Despot" to see the simple, yet dramatic canvas Zo weaves with his words). This band is the real deal. They were discovered by Taproot, and carry somewhat of a similiarity, but far outshine them.

Next time you review a cd kid, LISTEN TO IT. And listen with an open mind except with a preconcieved notion that all the music in a specific category sucks. Believe me, you'll miss a lot of good music that way.

5.0 out of 5 stars good stuff.................... August 18, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Canada's music isn't really associated with any type of rock. It's mostly techno and rave. But, Pulse Ultra breaks those grounds. The 4 person band blasts out of canada with an excellent debut. Singer Zo Vissa writes beautifal and meaningful lyrics. Guitarist Dominic Ciffarelli plays tasteful riffs and has style like no. Drummer Maxx Zinno plays with very tasteful double to compliment the guitar. The bass also sounds very good mixed with the music. The music is like no other. Combining ethereal atmospheres and some crazy hooks, which is why there my favorite band.
heres how i rate the songs.
1. Acceptance(phase 1)- very good but short 9/10
2. Finding my place(phase 2)-excellent song with some crazy guitar 9/10
3. Put it off- it's ok 7/10
4. Big Brother- this is a good song with a techno beginning
5. Never the culprit- good song. slow at first but then it speeds up 8/10
6. Slip in sin- this my 2nd favorite song on the cd 10/10
7. prelude- a slow instrumental 7/10
8. void- it's ok 7/10
9. Build your cages- 3rd best on cd awesome guitar riffs 10/10
10.tired- this is really good song with a true meaning behind it 9/10
11.Interlude- another instrumental. this one is better. 8/10
12.look closer- i don't reaaly like this song. 5/10
13. glass door- worst song on the cd. it is really annoying and too punkish. 3/10
14.Despot- my favorite song on the cd. It is so true. listen to the lyrics closely. The music is super good too 11/10

5.0 out of 5 stars What Can I Say? This: Refreshing!! October 24, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Wow. Absolutely awesome, they are now one of my favorite bands. It is so easy to get hooked to this album. I cannot say that they sound like anyone else because I have never heard anything like it before, the music AND the vocals are both unique. In a time when a lot of rock bands are starting to have the same kind of sound, Pulse Ultra starts a completely new sound. I would have to say that it sounds like a cross between metal/hard rock with a few effects thrown in. But don't let that turn you off, the effects actually add to the song in a smooth way, not like a Linkin Park kind of way. You can get lost in the ambient guitars and singing... and the lyrics, you can tell, are very well thought-out and he took the time to write them. Another thing that makes them sound unique is their use of strange chords and uncommon time signatures.
A review of each individual song:
1. Acceptance (Phase I) - Great opener. A little different from the other stuff on the album, but something to take a good listen to. Obviously a very difficult song to get the timing right.
2. Finding My Place(Phase II) - Listening to the lyrics, you understand how #1 and #2 are related. Anyways, one of my favorite tracks on the album, thoughtful lyrics, hooking melodies, you will find yourself singing along sooner or later. Very melodic.
3. Put It Off - First song on the album that has a pure metal edge to it. The lyrics aren't as good as some of the other songs on the album, but a decent song nevertheless. I don't like the chorus that much either.
4. Big Brother - What the hell is with the techno beginning? Anyways it's a good song, with a bit of a more metal edge to it, and the lead singer's voice is the rawest of any of the songs on the album. The lyrics are good...

4.0 out of 5 stars Heavy, yet complex, powerful, yet beautiful... July 17, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Based out of Montreal, Canada, Pulse Ultra first originated in 1997 as a three-piece under the moniker Headspace. After releasing one demo in 1998, the group, which featured guitarist Dominic Cifarelli, bassist Jeff Feldman, and drummer Max Zinno, then acquired the talents of frontman Zo Vizza in early 1999, thus completing the lineup. Soon after, the quartet recorded a couple of demos that garnered the praise of such reputed individuals as Mike DeWolf of Taproot, Dave Henning & Ian Thornley from Big Wreck, Jim Root of Slipknot, and drummer/producer Robin Dimaggio (Steve Vai, Mariah Carey). Before long, the group had secured a management deal with Velvet Hammer (Taproot, System Of A Down, Pome) and soon after, a record deal with Velvet Hammer / Atlantic. In July 2001, the newly renamed Pulse Ultra entered the studio in Los Angeles with producer Neal Avron (A New Found Glory) to record their debut album, titled Headspace, which is set for release on July 16, 2002.
With influences ranging from Red Hot Chili Peppers, Jamiroquai, Baxter, Portishead, and Bjork to Dream Theater, Queensryche, Parliament and Extreme as well as such modern acts as Incubus, Tool, and the Deftones, it is no small wonder that Pulse Ultra emerges as a unique amalgamation between melodic, hard rock and progressive metal, with traces of funk, trip-hop, and ethnic influences permeating their sound. Comparison wise, Pulse Ultra may possess the dark, melodic undertones of a Staind or Taproot, the idiosyncratic nature of The Apex Theory, and the creative ambition of the more artistically-minded Tool or Rush, yet as a whole, the band manages to defy classification with their eclectic brand of music.
