16:28 - Dima seems like an opportune time to link this [link]
16:20 - IronAngel If I were to describe her stuff, I'd probably say something like "psychedelic, drony rock with some gothic flair and the occasional metal-tinged riff." Or something.
16:19 - !J.O.O.E.! Lots of what's called hardcore, and also metalcore, is probably better described as being metal. I think people hear certain kinds of vocals and call it hardcore. Plenty of hardcore is punk based though.
16:17 - Kuroboshi One thing I've never understood is the distinction between metal and hardcore. Also, metal and grunge. It sounds to me like they're all part of metal. :P
You can jump up and down with excitement Ulcerate-worshippers because the death metal band will enter their hometown MCA Studios to record their fourth album and Relapse Records debut this week, expected to drop later this year.
Ulcerate founding drummer Jamie Saint Merat states: "After almost exactly twelve months of exhaustive work we are now in the final stages of preparation for our fourth album. This week we enter the studio to track what has become a violent, monolithic piece of work."
The yet-to-be-named fourth opus from Ulcerate follows two albums on Willowtip Records - 2009's Everything Is Fire and 2011's The Destroyers Of All as well as their 2007 Neurotic Records debut Of Fracture And Failure.
Expect updates through all of 2013 as Ulcerate complete their latest work and allow it to erupt forth onto humanity later this year, in addition to taking it to the stage. New Zealanders can catch the band in Auckland and Wellington with labelmates Rotten Sound this April.
Ulcerate confirmed live actions:
4/11/2013 - Rising Sun - Auckland, New Zealand with Rotten Sound
4/12/2013 - Bar Bodega - Wellington, New Zealand with Rotten Sound
