The Coming of Genocide

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.

Andrej Romić No doubt my favorite Ulcerate record, their heaviest one, to be honest. Not that i don't like their newer, more atmospheric oriented albums, but this one was the shit. Heavy, fast and brutal. Favorite track: The Coming of Genocide.

Ulcerate Auckland, New Zealand

Auckland, New Zealand-based unorthodox death metal act Ulcerate was formed by guitarist Michael Hoggard & drummer Jamie Saint Merat in 2000, with the aim of creating, dark oppressive death metal. This focus has since developed & metamorphosed into a far more dynamic approach with a fully realised sense of atmosphere & mood, while furthering their foray into the darker end of the genre’s spectrum. ... more

Track Name: The Coming of Genocide
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
Track Name: Unhallowed Ascension
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
Track Name: Scorn the Dethroned
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
Track Name: Second Death
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
