New Zealand deathsters share new song

Forward-thinking, unorthodox New Zealand death metal trio ULCERATE return with their latest masterwork Shrines Of Paralysis, a flawless continuation of the band’s signature sonic philosophy. Shrines Of Paralysis spans eight tracks of singular death metal, incorporating a wider range of styles and ideas than ever before. Influences both within and beyond metal abound: organic, inventive phrasings and novel compositional techniques round out a thundering package of death, doom, and black metal stylings. As is characteristic of the band, Shrines Of Paralysis is about much more than just the music. The production, themes, and atmosphere all shape ULCERATE‘s music, and help guide the way through a highly evocative palette of dark and light passages, subtly dramatic rhythmic manipulation, and unparalleled technical heaviness. The band’s most cohesive and powerful release to date.

Shrines Of Paralysis is due out October 28, 2016 on CD/2xLP/Digital via Relapse Records. Physical packages and digital pre-orders are available via Relapse.comHERE.

Additionally, ULCERATE have announced a headlining North American tour with Icelandic dissonance-mongers Zhrine and Montreal death metal quartet Phobocosm. Ulcerate will also be performing two exclusive dates in New Zealand at the end of October before the tour’s kickoff. A full list of dates is available below.
