Brilliant Coldness was formed in November 1997 by Oleksandr Mor Umurzakov (bass guitar back then) and Serhii Angel Udovenko (guitars). For a short time the band was named Casket & Morgue, which was changed later to Brilliant Coldness. In the beginning the lyrics were close to insane, full of blasphemy, black sarcasm and brutality. The music was inspired by the most brutal acts of worldwide death metal and grindcore scenes – Death, Morbid Angel and Cannibal Corpse are few to mention.
«However, Brilliant Coldness were always striving to create their own extreme music style and make it perfect. I think, in The Ultimate Dream. Plan B: Disposal of humanity we finally reached the goal of long-years painstaking work of the band’s founding fathers and the other musicians, which were side by side in this endurance and surviving relay race. The lyrics are more philosophical now but they still mention a magic and otherworld interaction with unknown supernatural nature of being».
