Boasting an original, inventively dread-inspiring style of audio torture, Auckland, New Zealand-based death metal trio Ulcerate has completed the final stages of preparation for the pending release of their fourth horrific masterpiece, and first for Relapse Records.
After a year of writing and planning, the creation of the record came to fruition in March of this year when the band entered hometown MCA Studios. The nine passages harnessed during these sessions culminates into a nearly fifty-five minute document of the outfit’s most tumultuous craftsmanship yet, entitled ‘Vermis.’ Relapse will unleash the album on CD, double LP and digitally, now confirmed for 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. Preorders have been made available here.
