URARV - Argentum MLP
Arising from the shadow of mental institutions and personal secret corners comes Norway’s Urarv (“Ancient Heritage”), the new project spearheaded by avant-metal stalwart Björn Aldrahn Dencker of DHG and The Deathtrip and Thorns fame. There are elements of the band which seem familiar on the surface level: the black metal-esque riff-work, the harsh vocals, the rhythmic intensity. And yet there is something ‘off’ about it, something unsettling which suddenly becomes glaring and upsetting,
Argentum is the second effort from the unchartered mind of Urarv. The mini-album consists of six tunes that were recorded same time as the 2017 debut Aurum.
"In the light of awareness, we realize that Argentum is the answer to the channeling of distress and a spirit asleep in the abyss of thoughts. With a slightly higher level of aggression and disharmonic overloads, we gladly put this demon in your lap for you to decode the way you best see fit.
In the gray petrified waters of existence, we alternate our minds and conceive with great enthusiasm the energy that runs this machinery. In awe and in gratitude for your support, we are honored to present you Argentum." - URARV
