Ulcerate - _Ulcerate_
(Independent, 2003)
by: Quentin Kalis (6 out of 10)
New Zealanders Ulcerate are to be congratulated on having taken the initiative to release this self-financed MCD. This four-piece blast their way through four pieces of competently performed, yet ultimately generic brutal death metal. Like many other self-produced albums, it is performed with a passion often lacking on releases by the larger labels, yet falling short of being truly noteworthy. It is clear that they are not trying to create something unique and innovative, yet it also lacks the personal quirks needed to give a CD its own unique identity. As mentioned earlier, they are competent musicians and clearly they are a rough diamond that may yet be honed into a tight, innovative and leading unit. After all, who could have foreseen back in the early 1990s, when Darkthrone's _Soulside Journey_ was released, that they would develop into one of metal's most important bands?
