URN's highly anticipated fourth album, "The Burning" on July 28th


Urn IRON BONEHEAD PRODUCTIONS is proud to present URN's highly anticipated fourth album, The Burning. One of the Finnish underground's longest-running yet best-kept secrets, URN have been flying the flag of hate for unholy blackthrash since 1994. Founded by ex-Barathrum guitarist Sulphur, URN have been a study in delayed-gratification patience and trend-bucking defiance. Their 2001 debut LP 666 Megatons sounded exactly like that, detonating a nuclear blast of classic blackthrash-cum-speed metal, which was further roughed up and refined on the successive LPs Dawn of the Devastation (2006) and Soul Destroyers (2008). But just as URN had seemingly perfected their addicting 'n' acidic style, their classic power-trio lineup disintegrated and it was up to Sulphur to rebuild the band again. And rebuild, the bass-playing frontman did, as The Burning is the triumphant phoenix from the ashes.

Still maintaining that power-trio formation but now featuring a new lineup that includes guitarist Too Loud and drummer Revenant, The Burning literally explodes with an excitement that's long been missing in black metal - suitably so, as it's URN's first new recording in nearly a decade. Well rested, then, but certainly not resting on past laurels, URN here fire off one veritable anthem after another with an urgency that's startling to behold; the energy and passion are writ large across The Burning, and absolutely impossible to contain. And yet, for all its immediacy, there's a certain grace and grandeur to The Burning that URN have never revealed before: a wide-open, widescreened "man on the mountain" type of atmosphere that makes this pure black HEAVY METAL all the more majestic. However, let it be known that these Finnish bastards still revel in the dirt, just that now they've delivered their rancorous visions in a recording that's their most robust and powerful to date.

Feel The Burning? It's URN, 666% back with a bestial invasion in the sign of evil!
