New Zealand's Ulcerate have been carving out a unique spot for themselves---somewhere between pulverizing technical death metal and sweeping post-metal---for over a decade now. Sure, it's an unorthodox thing to be, but more power to 'em for it. The genre-crushing outfit welcomed their most recent album, Vermis, in the fall of last year via new home Relapse Records. It's a beast of an LP and you'll find a complete stream of it at the bottom of this post.

It's been a couple of years since Ulcerate last toured North America, and we're happy to tell you they've just announced a month-long run leading up to Maryland Deathfest 2014. Main support on a majority of their dates will come from road warriors Inter Arma, including their Chicago show at Cobra Lounge on May 16. Ticketing information is forthcoming, but check CL's calendar for updates.

All Ulcerate dates and a stream of Vermis lie after the jump...
