about

Metal-Rules.com, November 2013

"Starting out as a thrash metal band influenced by the likes of Testament, Megadeth and Exodus, Vulgate (UK) have been going strong since 2005. After releasing their Unleashed E.P. and playing around with thrash metal for few years, the band felt the need to change their musical direction.

Today Vulgate find themselves highly influenced by death metal bands like Death, Cynic, At The Gates and Dying Fetus and present their latest E.P. Vulgate that’s been independently released on the 17th of August, 2013.

Vulgate E.P. leaves a great first impression of solid death metal record full of groove and musical contrasts. It kicks off with one minute long intro „Transperance,” which is beautifully melodic and acoustic, however it struggles to resemble and inform the listener on what’s about to follow.

The second song „The Sickening Fanatical Mind” adds a great kick to the record bringing in sharp guitars, epic drumming and death metal growls. It’s an extensive song with added melody and acoustic elements alongside heavy, raw and powerful death metal parts making it a dramatic highlight of the E.P.

„Light in a Sky” brings it down by throwing in doom atmospherics and chugging riffs, yet maintaining perfect melodics and technical song structure. It marks the darkest and heaviest track off Vulgate E.P. with exceptionally well captured feel to it.

„Waves (instrumental)” stands out as a progressive song with astounding and virtuoso guitar performance. It contrasts the heaviness of „Light in a Sky” and makes Vulgate into a lot more exciting E.P. to discover.

The last track on Vulgate E.P. is „Waters of Judgement” starting out with a haunting intro and evolving into a fast pace and technically mind-blowing track with spectacular guitar work and significant thrash metal influences. The drumming on „Waters of Judgement” is extra sharp and with added soaring death metal growls, the song just can’t go wrong.

Vulgate stands out as an original and challenging E.P. for such progressive death metal band, as it includes multiple musical techniques, layers and elements from different genres. Vulgate E.P. will not let down those who enjoy their old school death metal raw and not overproduced."

Track Name: The Sickening Fanatical Mind
God has all but forsaken you
I stand here as one
Don’t give pity or sympathy
Care for life, I have none
The way you scurry through your life, it sickens me
Moneys king and greed’s your god
I walk these streets, all I see is tyranny
I see that all hope is gone

You are the a plague on the world, a sickness that cannot be welled
The darkness that covers your souls, for forgiveness your lives are the toll
The demons that are plaguing the earth, will fall at out saviours rebirth
Angels are watching the world, but won’t answer your prayers or your yells

In the name of Christ, you will pay
No sinner, will be saved
Now I pray, load my gun
Mercy?
(No!)
The devil, walks among us all
You embraced, so now you'll fall
Make the sign of the cross
I’m the hand, of our god!

I will walk into this godly light
I have the sinners in my sight
They'll feel the hand of god’s vengeance wrath,
Gods!

You are the a plague on the world, a sickness that cannot be welled
The darkness that covers your souls, for forgiveness your lives are the toll
The demons that are plaguing the earth will fall at out saviour’s rebirth!

Track Name: Light in the Sky
I have foreseen, the end of the world
I’ve seen the light burn out from the sky
The death of a star, the sadness it brings
The darkness!

No escaping our fates, nowhere to hide
As the sun sets fire to the sky
As fire rains down, burning our world
The sadness!

The light burns my eyes, burns our world
Turns the earth from the universe
Extinguishing flame, imploding star
The burning us all
Heavens alight, soon darkness comes
Just nothing in the black
Nothing in space, ashes of the world
As the sun fades away

As the fires rage and the waters boil
And the light goes black, as the sun explodes

Just fire, no life no air to breath
Dry lands, no water, no more sea
Why god, have you, not prevented the
The death, the end, the catastrophe!

Consumed, in flame, the world has been
Fires, spreads through, the galaxy
Worlds burn, explodes, our destiny
No hope, no way, its what’s will be!

The light burns my eyes, burns our world
Turns the earth from the universe
Extinguishing flame, imploding star
The burning us all
Heavens alight, soon darkness comes
Just nothing in the black
Nothing in space, ashes of the world
As the sun fades away

Track Name: Waters of Judgement
City’s swept away, the waves clam the land,
The god condemns us all, to the sea!

Oceans has become one, the world becomes the sea,
The waves bring us judgement, for our sins!

Judgement, passing, of us
Waters, ravage, this world
Roads now, rivers, over flowing
I see, the end, can you?

Rivers flood with tears, the oceans swell with blood
Their drowning for our sins, penance for our soul.

Tides start to rise, Rain starts to pour
Heavens angels cry, praying for our souls

God forsakes us, just as we forsaken him
Currents take our lives, wash us of our sins
Towers washed away, like our mark on this world
God sheds a tear, now comes the wave!
