Ulcerate Enters The Recording Studio

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.

"Ulcerate has toured with extreme metal heavyweights across all of New Zealand, Australia and heavily across Europe alongside the likes of Nile, Krisiun, Decapitated, Behemoth, Cannibal Corpse, Deicide, Grave, Corpus Mortale, Svart Crown and others, and even assaulted North American audiences for the first time with several shows around and including 2012’s annual installment of the massive Maryland Deathfest."

Catch Ulcerate live on the following dates:

4/11/2013 Rising Sun - Auckland, New Zealand w/ Rotten Sound
4/12/2013 Bodega - Wellington, New Zealand w/ Rotten Sound

Ulcerate's lineup consists of:

Paul Kelland: bass/vocals
Michael Hoggard: guitars
Jamie Saint Merat: drums
