I agree with you for the most part, but I'd say this album is definitely the best thing since Everything is Fire. Shrines of Paralysis grew on me, but Vermis definitely wasnt my thing. I dug Destroyers.

Re: 2020 album discussion thread

I personally don't think Of Fracture and Failure is their best album though. That title still belongs to Everything Is Fire for me. This new one still needs more listens for me but I definitely am enjoying it more than the previous 2 albums, which is the low point of the band imo. Not that those 2 albums are bad, they're just whatever.

yeah, and your opinion is the most common among Ulcerate fans. EiF and TDoA are really good, to be sure, there was just something special about the writing on the first one for me. There were some really sick grooves that happened on that one that they never really hit again. That, and Ben Read was a way sicker vocalist. Speaking of, haven't seen him around here in ages now.

Re: 2020 album discussion thread

I don’t feel like I want another album from ulcerate. I love all of their output up to and including Vermis. Couldn’t get into shrines at all. Vermis was awesome and it has some of their best moments. I really dig Clutching revulsion, cessation, the title track and await recission. When eif dropped there was nothing like it. Total benchmark album. Hollow idols and omens are incredible tracks as well but I actually prefer vermis over tdoa. And yeah I agree, I prefer Ben Read over Paul. The coming of genocide, fracture, eif, tdoa, and vermis are all I want from them.
I saw them in 2016 with Zhrine. Got them to sign all my cds and vinyls. Hung out with the guitarist from svartidaudi. totally chill dudes

Re: 2020 album discussion thread

I definitely want a new Ulcerate album, they're my currently going favorites. EiF is their best, TDoA is their crowning achievement, Vermis is my favorite, their debut is the one nod towards Neurosis and treasured as much as all of their records. Shrines has some of their most glorious writing yet and the despondency is breathtaking but the production didn't sit well with me and overall it's my least preferred album by a stretch. I'll take new Ulcerate for a new Merat performance alone though.

Promising stuff for sure, they are already writing their full length which should be out in early 2021.


Haven't heard this in full but the single sounded crushing

Yeah, this is definitely their best in a while. I like the vocals, personally.

As I fall deeper and deeper into the hole of audio engineering, man, the mix of this album is insanely good.

They ruled when they played in my city last year. Though, whoever made the album art sure loves dicks.

After 10 + spins and I can comfortably say that the new Ulcerate is up there with EiF. So much depth and attention to detail. Every part and passage is just so well crafted and put together. Yes it’s less disjointed and more focused than anything they done before. It’s just so damn catchy and emotional

This is decent, kind of a mix of Ulcerate and old Mastodon. Groovy ear candy to have on in the background

That Insalubrity is totally retarded. Caveman brutality with pop-corn ping snare. How can you not love that!?

New Unmerciful sounds promising. Nothing is going to touch their debut though. Need to give them some proper time after i’m done obsessing over the new Ulcerate.
