Death Metal / black metal

Auckland, New Zealand-based unorthodox death metal act Ulcerate was formed by guitarist Michael Hoggard and drummer Jamie Saint Merat in 2000, with the aim of creating dark oppressive death metal.

The band has remained DIY where possible, handling all facets of album production and visual design.
