TRACK PREMIERE: pure doom to its core, URSA unleash the tyrannous "Serengeti Yeti"

With riffs so thunderous they tear holes through mountain peaks, URSA enchants in the heaviest tradition of mystical sorcery, telling tales of animal spirits forged from smoke that dissipates above ancient caravan campfires.  With grandiose stories of wizards, dragons, spiders, and demons; URSA is the heaviest of bard, singing fascinating, barbarian tales of cutting human heads off with one swoop of the steel and brewing complex potions out of dragonfly wings.

URSA's monstrous debut album is reminiscent of doom and heavy metal pioneers Black Sabbath, Pentagram, Dio, Saint Vitus, Sleep, and Candlemass. The band's sole purpose on earth is to serenade through tales of beasts risen and slain.

Consisting of ¾ of the legendary prog metal band Cormorant, “Abyss Between the Stars” condenses all the innate and heavy mastery of Cormorant into focused, catchy, and powerful riffs that draw the listener in and empower them on their journey through the untamed wild west. Pure doom to its core. A choose-your-own-adventure tale in audio form, today at THE SLUDGELORD we can exclusively present a brand new track for your ears only.  Check out the great and the powerful, “Serengeti Veti” below as well as a quote about the track from vocalist/bassist Matt Solis.  Preorder a being taken (HERE)

“Serengeti Yeti” is definitely one of our favorite songs on the record—it has a nice mix of traditional doom and progressive rock/sludge, and the subject matter fits right in with our high-fantasy aesthetic. It tells the story of an ancient yeti who, after fleeing from a group of hunters, finds a mysterious vortex that hurls him into the middle of the African desert. It’s your classic “fish out of water” tale…except this fish wants to messily devour everyone in his path.
