Atmospheric, unorthodox death metal from Auckland, New Zealand. Formed in 2000.

2008 / 2009 - Everything is Fire
In 2008 Ulcerate the band's line-up changed considerably - after much consideration the decision was made to opt for a return to the lower pitched vocals utilised during the band's demo period, and so bassist Paul Kelland stepped up to take over the vocal duty from Ben Read. A new second guitarist Oliver Goater was found to replace Michael Rothwell after a more-than-amicable split. With a new, streamlined line-up, the band prepared for album no.2 ...

Scheduled for an early 2009 release, Ulcerate's second full-length album further refines and expands their work on 2007's 'Of Fracture and Failure'. Punishing, churning dissonance mixed with their trademarked sense of melody and textured rhythm work, coupled with a greater foray into mood and atmosphere. An entirely bleaker effort than anything ever realised by the band, guitar lines swirl and evolve into one another, percussive patterns work in and around the melody lines while the band further develops the linear style of writing they've come to be known for. Frantic, desolate and emotive, 'Everything is Fire' straddles the divide between pure chaotic density and raw, natural tones, marking a breath of fresh air in the climate of over-produced, stagnant and clinical metal.

'Everything is Fire' represents a band with a wholly unified musical and aesthetic direction.

The band's next full-length, entitled 'The Destroyers of All' is scheduled to come out on January 25th, 2011 on Willowtip Records.
