New Zealand death metal innovators ULCERATE have announced a headlining North American tour with support from Icelandic dissonance-mongers ZHRINE and Montreal death metal quartet PHOBOCOSM.

ULCERATE have revealed the cover art and preliminary details surrounding their forthcoming fifth full-length album and follow-up to 2013's critically-acclaimed Vermis. Shrines Of Paralysis is due out via Relapse this fall 2016.

The mere three-piece lineup perform the songs with astonishing strength and seamless professionalism, simultaneously mesmerizing and devastating audiences with a relentless tsunami of revolutionary death metal supremacy.

ULERATE followed the release of their 2013 Vermis LP with waves of extensive touring through Australasia, Europe, the United Kingdom and North America throughout 2014 and 2015, which will continue into 2016 with 25 North American shows for support of the upcoming record, Shrines of Paralysis.

Joining the full tour in the wake of their US debut at Maryland Deathfest 2016, Icelandic metal cult ZHRINE (feat. members of SVARTIDAUDI) will unleash monolithic slabs of death in support of their debut album 'Unortheta'. An imposing beast of an album, 'Unortheta' is a twisted mass of dense and atonal riffing among some of the genre's most elegant and cinematic arrangements. ZHRINE emerge as masters of their world, and 'Unortheta' heralds the awakening of an altogether new force.

Rounding out the tour package, Montreal's PHOBOCOSM. Returning on this full North American tour package after a string of dates in May with fellow stunning Canadian death-bringers Mitocondrion and Auroch, which culminated with their appearance at Maryland Deathfest 2016. PHOBOCOSM's newest album, Bringer of Drought, is an exploration into uncharted darkness. A deeper and more intense experience than its 2014 predecessor, Deprived, Bringer of Drought features 35 minutes of soul-reaping, doom-infused death. One thing that’s easy to do is to proclaim this an excellent album that all fans of malignant, staggering, ultra-dark death metal owe it to themselves to experience live.
