It was at this precise location that NǽnøĉÿbbŒrğ VbëřřĦōlökäävsŦ would record their first album, The Ultimate Fate of the Universe, using their basses, amps, and a laptop. "I couldn't have seen us recording Ultimate Fate anywhere other than the exact South Pole", said Wavanova during a later interview. "The tone produced by the basses was greatly influenced by the incredibly cold temperatures. It made the tone much heavier and, well, just more powerfully kvlt overall". Dark Dude commented further: "Oh, and the wind, the wind also played a huge role in the recording process, I mean, when you have a 50 km/h wind with a wind chill factor of -40 celsius, it's bound to have a substantial effect on the recording. See, all our tracks have this windy staticy sound in them.
This is not bad quality on our part, but rather, it is the sound of the bleak and icy winds of the lungs of Antarctica breathing its grim air into our microphone. The wind mixed perfectly with the freezing and crystallized bass tone to create what we think, is the grimmest and most bleak tone to ever be produced by a band." The band has been described by their fans as extremely ambient and droney, capturing the sounds of the universe between its phases of life, beginning with the Big Bang, and ending with the Heat Death Of The Universe. Their fans are keen to acknowledge the band's reputation for doing avant-garde song lengths, as follows: The Big Bang: 1 hour 27 minutes 1 second Planck Epoch: 1 second Epoch Of Nucleosynthesis: 1 hour 6 minutes 28 seconds Radiation Domination: 1 hour 53 minutes 47 seconds Matter Domination: 36 minutes 10 seconds The Primordial Dark Age: 2 hours 45 minutes 9 seconds Reionization: 3 hours 19 minutes 6 seconds The Black Hole Era: 2 hours 29 minutes 26 seconds The Photon Era: 6 hours 44 minutes 26 seconds The Heat Death: 2 hours 26 minutes 10 seconds Some rumours suggest that the band's members are so grim and kvlt that they travelled through time using the String Theorum, and captured the sounds from the Universe as they arrived.
