Bands like Behemoth, Vader and Azarath have over the years crafted what is now come to be known as the Polish death metal sound. Ulcer, coming from the same lands as the aforementioned, however has a sound that leans more towards their Swedish counterparts, with Grant Us Death being their sophomore full lenth album, the first new material in almost 6 years since their debut in 2007, Serpent Trinity.Enriched in the depths of old school Swedish death metal, the album is a nasty violent cacophony of exhausting and malicious intensity engineered through raptorial riffs and blood thirsty rhythms for a more than pleasing confrontation.
Nick is desperate, holed up in a cheap hotel, suffering from an ulcer and convinced that a local mobster wants him killed. He calls Mikey, his friend since childhood, but when Mikey arrives, Nick won't let him in: his moods swing. So begins a long night as Mike tries to take care of Nick, calm him down and get him out of town. Their sojourn - on foot and in a city bus - takes them to a bar, a club, toward a movie theater, to the cemetery where Nick's mom is buried, and to Nick's girlfriend's apartment. Tempers fray and the friendship is tested. Meanwhile, a hit man who's getting information from someone is indeed looking for Nick.
