URNE Announce New Album ‘A Feast On Sorrow’

URNE are part of a new wave of British heavy metal bands bringing the best of the genre crashing into the modern day. Paying homage to the bands that have come before but marching forward to their own beat, they are on the verge of something truly extraordinary. And with the announcement of their new album, they are edging ever closer to that stardom.

Their new record is called A Feast On Sorrow and will be released on August 11th via Candlelight Records. It was recorded at Silver Cord Studio in Brooklyn, New York, owned by Gojira’s Joe Duplantier, who reached out to URNE personally.

Vocalist Joe Nally had this to say about the experience:

We had many ups and downs throughout this process, but the end result is something the three of us are extremely proud of. Having the honour to travel to New York to work alongside Joe Duplantier and Johann Meyer on this record is something we didn’t think would be possible and, on top of that, to have Ted Jensen master this record, has been an experience we once dreamed of.

This whole album is extremely personal for me. It’s made me grow as a person and has also helped me understand the grieving process better than before. This isn’t a joyful or uplifting record, it’s very raw and real, and when the opportunity to work with Joe came to be, we all knew he was the perfect person to capture the message of this record.”

URNE have also shared the first taste of the album, and it is “Becoming The Ocean”. A blistering display of riffs smashed against a guttural vocal display, with plenty of ethereal breaks thrown in for good measure, it’s a metal triumph.

Joe had this to say about it:

“‘Becoming The Ocean’ has ties to a move within my life that was supposed to bring my family joy and a new life. Sadly, it hasn’t been as smooth as we all hoped. I walk by the ocean every day and something with such beauty and grace, also holds such power and an ability to crush and destroy.

“The video was shot in Pembrokeshire, Wales. This beach is known for a rock formation called Church Rock which works perfectly with the lyrical content of this song.”
