The Coming of Genocide

honeycombguy Although these guys would end up growing quite a lot in the coming years, this release still holds up very well. It's fast, hectic, and brutal as all hell. Favorite track: Unhallowed Ascension.
Keyzer Röger

Keyzer Röger Brutal as f#ck technical death/grind. Favorite track: The Coming of Genocide.
Ippocalyptica thumbnail
Ippocalyptica That this pales in comparison to everything else that Ulcerate would later release, but is still better than the vast majority of technical death metal, speaks to the quality of Ulcerate’s debut EP. Many of the band’s signature elements - the dissonance, the build up and release of tension, and Jamie Saint Merat’s world-ending drumming - are all present, but not as effective as they would be just three years later. This nonetheless remains essential listening for death metal fans. Favorite track: Second Death.

A race cloned of fear Followers of the sun's dying blaze Entering a broken future Burning in the contemptuous dominion Severed wings of the dove of peace Black it's heart - crushed in my grasp Declaration of an ancient war Apocalyptic quest for domination Invoking the fall of a culture Defiled by the contrived laws of those blind Wielding rebellious powers Spilling blood of the Elysian upon a razed Eden Ashes of dogma are swept away in winds of oblivion As masses asphyxiate from inhalation of truth Uncaged I gorge the flesh of lambs Enlightened by impurity Disgraced is their seed The ignorant shall suffer
Blackspawn invade the poisoned skies I the master, enthroned by immortal right Blood of crestfallen angels spills from the heavens Your lord falls unto Hell Laws of nature forged in perpetual fire It's flames drowning the souls raped by the father of inanity Abysmal tongues blaspheme the stigma of the dead hand Condemning who drink the blood that drips from the crucifix of Golgotha Abysmal tongues bless the standard of the strong And command the bearer from the text divine Faces of the justly damned is all I see Screams of mortal anguish is all I hear Purge the anointed Execute insipid breeds Greatness - supreme aim and value Progress - achieve preservation of pure blood Right is what benefits I
Your tears of misery fill this chalice from which I drink Disdainful as I witness your reality induced decay Lost souls have no will of their own The diseased beg for destruction Beg for absolution Bestowed light of dilution Shackles of slavery embraced Fuck your god - banish hypocrisy Fuck your god - eternal enemy A decrepit empyrean Prepares the graves of millions oppressed Ageless, unburied The one who doubted his empire Praise this primal entity Sworn to dark sovereignty Summon it's strength, it's wisdom Only I can destroy me
Second Death 04:27
Storms of cleansing defile me Shelter not from your wrath and fury One's swift destruction In final conflagration My blood spills, my flesh boils Marked for servitude eternally Are those repentant unto forgery In suffering the lesser wither in ineptness Unsaved shall they be In suffering I shall ascend Angel of impiety Saved shall none be The earth shall burn in the bowels of my fervent abyss Lies idolised Implore in vein May inhuman vengeance awaken you Writhe in the undying flames of superiority Spirit's sacrifice My will, my right My redemption is in your pain My exemption is in your death
