New Zealand unorthodox death metallers will perform a UK exclusive set

Follows the reveal of RUÏM with a UK debut and exclusive performance, and Agalloch with a 2025 European exclusive headlining performance

Fortress Festival 2025 is already 60% sold out. Standard weekend tickets on sale now via FortressFestival.co.uk/tickets



Ulcerate, the Auckland, New Zealand unorthodox death metal band, has been revealed as the third exclusive band on Fortress Festival’s 2025 line-up. The announcement came as a surprise on social media and followed shortly after the organisers unveiled RUÏM as the second band to be announced for the event’s 2025 edition.

Fortress Festival will take place on the weekend of 31 May - 1 June 2025 at Scarborough Spa. Standard weekend tickets are now on sale: https://www.fortressfestival.co.uk/tickets

Ulcerate were formed in 2000 and the band’s artistry is characterised by a whirlwind of scything art-metal guitars, thunderous, intricate drumming, and guttural vocal roars which create an overwhelming sense of impending doom. The Fortress Festival announcement arrived together with the new album, “Cutting The Throat Of God”, a mind-bending seventh album from these unparalleled death metal titans.

Ulcerate join an already impressive line-up of debuts and exclusive performances. RUÏM will perform a UK debut and exclusive show - the band features iconic former Mayhem guitarist and Vltimas founder, Blasphemer. Agalloch will perform a 2025 European exclusive headlining show; their first in the UK since the band’s reformation and the first in the UK since 2015.

Early bird tickets have sold out quickly following the Agalloch announcement and Fortress Festival is now 60% sold out.
