5 stars Ulcerate offer an dose of extreme metal and not especially fitting for new comers in the field. "Everything Is Fire" reminds me of London Porter's beer label, "Rich, Dark & Complex", tho they should have added the taste is acquired, and like any good *insert nearly anything* needs background taste and careful selection. The melody on this album is different from mainstream any sub brunch of death metal. A variety of alternate-picked harmonics, lacks any solos and an an expansive tonal range (Roman Temin @ diabolicalconques). Ulcerate's elements are wide and diverse, from "duel guitars" to insane and original drumming and it all brews together into something like the dark-anarchic thought of a pre-Socratic thinker which was also named "the obscure" known for his darkness & hardness to understand. My favorite is the "sparkling" drumming and the twisting & piercing guitar riffs yet atmospheric, which together create some beautiful "post-rock" (for a lack of better choice of a term) moments. Also the climax at some tracks are simply mind blowing. Even superman (as some other review did mention) could not have digested this album after a few spins. Its impossible to digest something so genuinely authentic & jaw dropping new at a short period of time. This album does not fall into the self-parody that some other DM (death metal) bands fall into, and for that it holds some genuine disturbing moments.

This album will be remembered together with Gorguts, Suffocation, Death & similar bands which are treasured as classics. Any how, I'm out to listen to Camel's "The Snow Goose" and after that popping "Everything is Fire", enjoying the full spectrum that richness & excellence can offer.

Sblast | 5/5 |
