Ulcerate: Death and Tragedy.

Ulcerate - Stare Into Death and Be Still

Even if I’m not very into technical death metal, I knew that the new LP from New Zealanders Ulcerate was a sought after release, as they’ve built up a reputation over the last ten years producing albums of high quality. 

The band combines powerful death metal with atmospheric sludge and futurist black metal, having a technical edge and harmonies to their sound. Stare Into Death and Be Still is the trio’s sixth album, and the theme of the eight songs unravels the reverence of death, “drawing on a recent personal experience to confront the triusm that death and tragedy aren’t always sudden or violent, that people are often passive observers trapped in the silent horror of observing death calmly and cleanly.”
