Staff review by
Mr. Doctor

Rating:
9.5
I always wondered what the meaning of art was. As in, what is the main goal for the artist(s)? What would be the greatest achievement? If you ask yours truly, the main goal would be to make something greater than the creator(s) and spectators, a grand monument with such a force that it can stand proud and imposing against anything around it. Ulcerate did just that. Again.

10.09.2013 Ulcerate practically need no introduction on this site anymore. They are endeared with the respect and awe of almost everyone that's heard them. If you haven't yet heard them I bet you're well curious about them now, eh?

On topic though, I too am seriously stoked for this one. Ulcerate are practically in a league of their own these days.

Man, tell me about it. I only realised recently what a truly monumental release The Destroyers of All was. I just can't stop listening to it lately. Great timing though, coz now my anticipation levels are celestial for Vermis.

Well Ulcerate posted a review on their Facebook page that says this is their best release yet. The way the reviewer described the album, it sounds like this is going to be one hell of a release. He said the Entropy song was the one most similar to Destroyers of All, but the rest of the album is more of a blend of all three of their albums. The review is definitely worth a read, and builds some nice anticipation.

I was happy getting another Destroyers, but a culmination of all Ulcerate's brilliance suits me even better.

Rating: 9 I somehow knackered the onboard sound chip on my motherboard so I currently have my speakers plugged into my monitor. I refuse to listen to this album with that set up so when my external soundcard arrives I shall listen to it then. Hopefully Monday.

Agreed, which is one of the things I love about this. I don't think I can stress enough how important the closing to an album is to me.

There's no point starting an album off strong, if you're just going to shit the bed half way through. Then again...the entire album is fantastic, so when they close the album out with the explosive Await Rescission, you're left with that "holy I need to play this again" thought.

Rating: 9 It is definitely as great as TDoA to say at least. Considering the fact that TDoA is less brutal than EIS, I thought that vermis will follow the same path but it is not the case here. This album managed to be more atmospheric and darker than the previous one and yet holding its brutality. A nominate for my next 10
Edit: my downloaded version does not have the last song. If that particular song is as good as the others, I would be happy

After listening to that one, I agree with you. The last song is such a prefect closer but the rest of album is also astonishing.
Ulcerate cannot disappoint. Really,level of consistency in their last three albums is ridiculously high as they are all masterpeices

This is one album that gathers frightening pace and momentum towards the end. No way to tiptoe around the sheer, brutal force it generates right at the depth. Scary shit.

  Listened to the track that Joe posted, this is sounding delicious, and this is coming from someone who doesn't normally enjoy these more dissonant forms of death metal.

Dude, man, bro. Check out Destroyer of All. I wouldn't call myself a BDM fan, but even I couldn't deny that album is freaking boss.
Alex Fenger - 12.09.2013 at 05:10  
Rating: 9 Probably my favorite death metal release from the year. Abyssal is close, but this album is just so absolutely undeniably massive that I'm not sure anything can match it. I might have put Duobetic Homunkulus above this, but it's just an EP and didn't really have the same impact that Vermis did. Utterly brilliant and truly "god-tier".
mz - 13.09.2013 at 00:27  
Rating: 9 Fvck, I am giving it 10,like TDoA. I might reduce it to 9 in the future but at the moment,I think that this album deserves it

At least it didn't get bombed with 1s, though it probably will receive a couple eventually. Also, this one is vastly superior to Summoning in my opinion. Though one can hardly compare the two, of course.

Meh, I didn't get grabbed by this album when I checked it out the first time, and haven't tried to come back to it yet. I thoroughly enjoyed Summoning but I was happy to see something else in the #1 spot for a change.

Don't get me wrong, I think the 9.4 or whatever it had when it came in was a bit too high, but I still enjoy this album a lot. Summoning is good too, but that one definitely wouldn't get higher than a 7.5 for me.
So, when I said "vastly superior" really I just meant... superior. Poor choice of words

Rating: 9 As someone who doesn't listen to much death metal (unless it's far into the avant-garde or progressive realms), I enjoyed this album thoroughly. Thanks to whoever complained in the shoutbox about it being in the top 10 Never would have found it otherwise.
