Inter Arma Cancels Upcoming Shows

Inter Arma is currently embarked on the Vermis North America MMXIV tour with Ulcerate. The band has now issued the following announcement about missing several upcoming shows:

"Regretfully, due to circumstances beyond our control, Inter Arma will be unable to perform on the Canadian, Detroit, and Chicago dates of the East Coast portion of the tour with Ulcerate leading up to MDF.

"We had maintained hope that the situation now causing our absence would have resolved itself prior to the trip, allowing us to do the whole tour unimpeded, but that ended up not being the case.

"We will definitively still be playing the shows in Philadelphia, New York, and Boston and hope to be able to hop back on at Fort Wayne and finish the remainder of the shows, but there are still a few things up in the air waiting to be resolved.

"This is probably more of a bummer for us than it is for you, but we apologize nonetheless and hope to be able to make it up to you all ASAP." More...

Ulcerate Posts In-Studio Footage

Following the recent unveiling of the details on Ulcerate’s impending fourth LP "Vermis," today Relapse has leaked an in-studio video of the Auckland, New Zealand tribe crafting the mammoth album at hometown MCA Studios earlier this year. Check it out below. The following press release was also issued about the band:

"The combined demolishing power and technical prowess of the music the trio creates is truly jaw-dropping on every one of the band’s releases to date, and watching them hone and construct these anguished hymns piece-by-piece is enthralling for any extreme music musician or Ulcerate devotee.

"Album-to-album, Ulcerate continually expands their attack by melding mechanical elements with organic flow patterns, and integrating more sonically demoralizing elements into their haunting explosiveness. The band’s forward-thinking death metal style is born where Hate Eternal, Gorguts and Immolation collides into the blackened anguish of Deathspell Omega or Portal -- traits which become more apparent than ever on their Relapse debut Vermis. The nine passages harnessed on their fourth full-length play out into a nearly hour-long document of their most tumultuous craftsmanship yet. Vermis will see release September 17th in North America, preceded by September 13th in Germany and Benelux, and September 16th in the UK and rest of the world."

Additional propaganda, hymns, and more on "Vermis" will be announced in the coming weeks in addition to new Ulcerate tour actions for 2013. More...

Ulcerate Recording New Album

After signing with Relapse Records in late 2011, this week Auckland, New Zealand-based death metal horde Ulcerate will enter hometown MCA Studios to record a fourth LP.

Ulcerate’s founding drummer Jamie Saint Merat states, “After almost exactly twelve months of exhaustive work we are now in the final stages of preparation for our fourth album. This week we enter the studio to track what has become a violent, monolithic piece of work.”

The yet-to-be-named fourth opus from Ulcerate follows two albums on Willowtip Records -- 2009’s "Everything Is Fire" and 2011’s "The Destroyers Of All" -- not to mention the 2007 Neurotic Records debut "Of Fracture And Failure." The following press release was also issued about Ulcerate:

"The band downs wave after tumultuous wave of dissonant riffing and a nonstop barrage of leveling, technical percussion with organic brute force and otherworldly discordance, topped with a purely disdainful, guttural lyrical attack. Their brutally-charged, sinister death metal bears an innovative, blackened edge resulting in a catastrophic concoction not dissimilar to Mitochondrion, Mithras, Portal, Glorior Belli and Deathspell Omega.
