Jamie Saint Merat – Ulcerate – Shrines of Paralysis – Drum Tracking + Tour Dtaes

Jamie Saint Merat and Ulcerate’s Shrines Of Paralysis is a flawless continuation of the band’s signature sonic philosophy, spanning eight tracks of forward-thinking death metal, incorporating a wider range of styles and ideas than ever before. Influences both within and beyond metal abound: organic, inventive phrasings and novel compositional techniques round-out a thundering package of death, doom, and black metal stylings.

As is characteristic of the band, Shrines Of Paralysis is about much more than just the music. The production, themes, and atmosphere all shape Ulcerate’s music and help guide the way through a highly evocative palette of dark and light passages, subtly dramatic rhythmic manipulation, and unparalleled technical heaviness. The band’s most cohesive and powerful release to date. Check out Jamie’s page on our website here.
