Man... I don't even know what to say. Saw these guys last night and it was just amazing. The incredibly dense sound they have in the studio was pulled off live and just sounded even more suffocating. Added to this the fact that the venue only holds about 100 people (when packed), it was a claustrophobic show to say the least. They had such a huge wall of sound that just hurt so good.

Best band I have ever seen live.

Anyways, Ulcerate is a death metal band from New Zealand of all places (*insert sheep joke here*), playing in style that sits somewhere between brutal death and tech death, though is not really either; their sound is highly intricate and crushing however it is very unorthodox compared to your average brutal death band. They use atmosphere better than anybody else in death metal (even Immolation) to create dense soundscapes and have a very strange sense of melody. There are plenty of Gorguts and Immolatoion comparisons but I feel that Ulcerate are more interesting and appealing than both. Everything is Fire is one of my favourite albums of all time. Check it.

Everything is Fire
Of Fracture and Failure
The Coming of Genocide
