Xtreem Music has issued the following announcement about inking a record deal with Ululate and releasing a new album in February:
"2014 had been a very productive year for Xtreem Music!! 27 releases in 12 months with bands from places like Iran and Nepal, but now we can announce the signing of a quite veteran band from... China!! They're Ululate, a one-man band that started back in 2001 as a black metal outfit and now has mutated into a solid death metal act.
"Ululuate released a debut album back in 2002 and then some EP's and splits until in 2014, Spectre, the only man behind the band, who plays all instruments, recorded a new album entitled 'Back to Cannibal World' displaying a very personal vision of horror themed death metal incorporating weird and twisted elements in it. To give you an idea of Ululate's sound, it comes as a blend of influences from bands like very early Carbonized, Autopsy, Immolation demo days, and even the Japanese Necrophile."
Due out February 1st, the album's track listing is as follows:
1. Not Always Be Silent
2. Red Wine
3. Decease and Sadness
4. Anxiety of Mortality
6. Mrs. Cobra
7. Real Catastrophe
