There is no single way that London trio Urne describe their sound, it all comes back to one thing: heavy. There are shades of Metallica, Mastodon, Alice In Chains in there, hopping between sludge, tech-metal, doom, hardcore and anything else with a weighty heart. On their debut full-length, ...Serpent & Spirit, this is writ large as the work of one of the finest new bands in the British metal underground.

Formed by ex-Hang The Bastard bassist Joe Nally and guitarist Angus Neyra after their former band called it quits, the pair already had a reputation for big, heavy riffs. Getting drummer Richard Harris on board in 2018, they gilded their new outfit (Urne, as in funeral urn, but using the German spelling for no real reason other than it looks cool) with ...The Mountain Of Gold EP. Produced by Sylosis/Architects guitarist Josh Middleton, it immediately marked Urne out as a formidable new metallic force.

Now, they return with ...Serpent & Spirit. Heavier, wider and with an even higher ratio of killer riffs than the EP, it also comes with a weighty central concept based around the central characters struggle as hes pulled between good and evil, darkness and light.
