The debut full-length studio album by German Funeral Doom/Death Metal band.
Funeral Death and Doom Metal always make for a Rock steady marriage. Funeral Death's Earth-rumbling vocal styles match Doom's cavernous bass, seamlessly. Doom's iconic molasses tempos pair wonderfully with Funeral Death's lyrics of heartless destruction of man. The two are more than meant for each other. One such successful marriage story is Urza. Hailing from Berlin, an area not known for many Doom bands, Urza has been active for four years. Like an Eldritch horror version of "Sumac", Urza crawls around the deep where the air is thin, their many eyes, blind and clouded over, blink in unison as it crawls through mud in search of cave insects.
The debut work by these newcomers is composed in the best traditions of Funeral Doom Metal. This is not only the dark and ultra-heavy music enriched by delicious melodies contained in five long tracks, a unique impressive atmosphere is included together with a dense professional sound that bring Urza in line with the recognized apostles of the genre.
Frontman Thomas' booming vocal presence is felt deep in your ribcage as he bellows like the blind cave monster. There are moments of uncertain fear as the mud-dwelling cave creature grumbles, snuffling around in the filth for that elusive scent of flesh with the appetizing stench of terror on it.
Urza is all about domination; guitars and vocals buzzing alongside crashing cymbals and plodding snares, all sounds conspiring into a sonic machine built to run you down. Like a towering combine harvester; maybe several... Urza is a vacuum of light, and in its darkness lie swarms of bloodthirsty parasites...
