ULCERATE announce new album and first song

ULCERATE, the New Zealand trio who Decibel Magazine hailed as „one of the most forward-thinking Death Metal bands around,“ return with their highly-anticipated new album, „Cutting the Throat of God„, via Debemur Morti Productions on June 14th.

A first offering from the seven-song album, ‚The Dawn is Hollow‚, is now available, accompanied by a video from visionary artist Dehn Sora (AMENRA, BLUT AUS NORD, THROANE): Ulcerate – The Dawn is Hollow (Official video) – YouTube

The Dawn is Hollow‚ envelops its audience in a realm of stark, overwhelming ambiance. Demonstrating a next-level use of melody and a finesse for dynamic shifts, ULCERATE skillfully oscillates between ferocious, rapid-fire segments and serene, enigmatically somber passages. These contrasts not only exhibit the band’s exceptional technical skill, but also their innate ability to craft unpredictable and singular compositions that resonate emotionally.

Cutting the Throat of God“ was recorded in the fall of 2023, under the watchful eye of drummer Jamie Saint Merat, who also oversaw production and provided artist direction for the collection. Renowned mastering engineer Magnus Lindberg (known for his work with CULT OF LUNA, RUSSIAN CIRCLES and TRIBULATION) put the finishing touches on the release. „Cutting the Throat of God“ explores a cohesive lyrical theme centered around the rupture of morality, the delicate boundary between depravity and extremity, and the irreversible descent into darkness.
