Our Treacherous Fathers (Single)

Press Release

The Danish Death Metal band URKRAFT has restored itself following a decade devoted to other musical projects

While playing the first gigs the release of the new album Our Treacherous Fathers is prepared. This album combines youthful madness and rage with the bitter wisdom of grown men.

URKRAFT was formed in 1995 as one of the first bands in the Danish Metal scene displaying a ”New Nordic” expression with lyrics in their Danish mother tongue revolving around the mystery of time and the evolution of man. Originating from these musical roots the debut album Eternal Cosmic Slaughter was released in 2004 and in 2006 The Inhuman Aberration was released by the groundbreaking British label Earache Records.

URKRAFT performed on volcanoes under the midnight Sun in Iceland and supported the great Cannibal Corpse in the proud capitals as well as dark corners of continental Europe. After the recording of their finest piece equipped with the prophetic title A Scornful Death URKRAFT was put to an uneasy sleep.

The Germanic term ”Urkraft” translates into ”primordial force” and thus the bands name refers to those powers that ultimately represent the dark matter that binds the universe together and lays the foundation for our religions, our wars and our unsettling visions.

URKRAFT is once again an active and recording band with the purpose of connecting past and present – in concert as well as on album. Following the release of Our Treacherous Fathers the track ”Håbets tyranni” –obviously featuring Danish lyrics – will have to stand its test performed for an audience alongside the rest of the primordial Death Metal hymns in the URKRAFT catalogue.
