THE BLACKENED MUSIC SERIES Presents Ulcerate with Tombs, at Public Assembly, May 19 2012
Ulcerate’s The Destroyers of All was easily the best death metal album of 2011: a strange, masterful new mutation you have not heard before. After ten years and three albums, this will be the New Zealand band’s first ever NYC show. Brandon Stosuy at Pitchfork wrote the album “weaves epic post-metal into frantic atmospheric death squalls… a beautiful blizzard of sound that feels chaotic and supremely controlled” while Metalsucks says “one else sounds like them, they’re heavy in a truly new way.”
Joining them is Tombs, who made Decibel Magazine and Brooklyn Vegan Metal’s #1 Album of 2012 for their jaw-dropping Path of Tonality, a masterclass in violent, blackened metal born out of hardcore and noise, and driven by extreme anger and total control.
