Premiere: Let Ursinne Give You a Ride in Their “Hollow Hearse”
Stream a brand new track from a truly super group.
It isn’t every day that a band’s lineup raises eyebrows, especially with only two members. Freshly formed death metal dealers Ursinne have managed to do just that though, bringing together legendary frontman Dave Ingram, formerly of Hail of Bullets and Benediction among many others, and multi-instrumentalist madman Jonny Pettersson of Ashcloud, Henry Kane and Wombbath. On paper this combination sounds like a no-brainer, and in practice they completely justify your decision to abandon any and all critical thinking skills.
After reading the veritable murderer’s row of death metal acts that Ursinne’s members are associated with you probably have a pretty good idea of what the band sounds like. I’ll concede that you’re probably right (metalheads are good at that sort of thing), but really that just means that you already know that this is fucking great.
The song we have for you today, “Hollow Hearse,” is a real jackhammer of a track that isn’t afraid to show off its melodies. Even underneath the steady rumble of opening triplets you can hear the faint siren song of the lead guitar, dancing and shimmying beneath the layers of grimy distortion. It begs you to get closer, go deeper, play louder. The closer you get, the deeper you go, and the louder you play, it only gets better. I know you believe me. You’ve already heard it in your head after all. Why not play it on something a bit louder, though?
Ursinne also just surprised us this morning with a brand new video for “Underworld.” Peep that below and keep on shimmying to the heinous sound of death.
