Formed in 2000, the singular New Zealand-based band has evolved into an instantly recognisable figurehead for those pushing Death Metal into twisted new directions.
Ultra-contemporary, unorthodox, emotive, dissonant, atmospheric and crushing, ULCERATE are unarguably some of the most uniquely talented musicians in extreme music.
The inexorable march from “Of Fracture and Failure” (2007) to the unparalleled “Shrines of Paralysis” (2016) has been frightening. And it appears the best is yet to come.
The band had this to say: “We are extremely happy to be moving head-first into this next chapter with a partnership that aligns so clearly with our own vision. Debemur Morti has always been in our peripheral gaze – the attention to detail and high level of curation is second-to-none.”
Auckland, New Zealand-based unorthodox Death Metal act ULCERATE was formed by guitarist Michael Hoggard & drummer Jamie Saint Merat in 2000, with the aim of creating, dark oppressive Death Metal. This focus has since developed & metamorphosed into a far more dynamic approach with a fully realised sense of atmosphere & mood, while furthering their foray into the darker end of the genre’s spectrum.
