Ulcerate, with special guests Ignivomous and Oligarch
New Zealand’s extreme metallers Ulcerate announce a weekend of Australian tour dates this August. This short run of dates will be the band’s last shows of 2018 before they begin to prepare their sixth full-length studio album.
Death metal has always had roots in themes of humanity, darkness, and oppression, but when Ulcerate formed in Auckland, New Zealand in 2000, their unconventional approach to the genre quickly redefined the meaning of those concepts throughout death metal and beyond. The trio’s distinctive treatment of dynamics alongside in-depth lyrical content established the band as a formidable force long before they became the standard-bearers for a new era of death metal, one defined by meticulous passages of understated melodic sensibilities and jarring, tooth-scraping dissonance.
