Having experienced the record first hand, I can confidently say that Ulcerate‘s Relapse Records debut Vermis is one of the best death metal albums of 2013. The group already gave the world a glimpse of their new album via ‘Confronting Entropy,’ but now we’re all able to hear the longest and most ominous track on the album, ‘Weight of Emptiness.’
Loudwire has the exclusive premiere, so you can hop on over to give the song a stream. I’m really loving the direction the band took on Vermis. Drummer and producer Jamie Saint Merat wanted to dirty up the mix, and he accomplished what he set out to do. Vermis is Ulcerate’s post-death metal sound with a murkier atmosphere.
Vermis is out September 17th on Relapse Records. Pre-orders are still available at this location.
