New Zealand death metallers Ulcerate have shared a new live drum playthrough video via Sick Drummer. Watch Jamie Saint Merat perform “Extinguished Light” off the recently released Shrines Of Paralysis full-length here:
The live drum playthrough was filmed at Saint Vitus Bar in Brooklyn, NY on the last date of the Shrines of Paralysis North American tour. The video is credited to Frank Huang (Pit Full of Shit).
Ulcerate’s latest masterwork Shrines Of Paralysis is a flawless continuation of the band’s signature sonic philosophy. Shrines Of Paralysis spans eight tracks of singular death metal, incorporating a wider range of styles and ideas than ever before. Influences both within and beyond metal abound: organic, inventive phrasings and novel compositional techniques round out a thundering package of death, doom, and black metal stylings. As is characteristic of the band, Shrines Of Paralysis is about much more than just the music. The production, themes, and atmosphere all shape Ulcerate’s music, and help guide the way through a highly evocative palette of dark and light passages, subtly dramatic rhythmic manipulation, and unparalleled technical heaviness. The band’s most cohesive and powerful release to date.
Shrines Of Paralysis is out now on CD/2xLP/Digital via Relapse Records. Physical packages and digital orders are available via Relapse.com here.
