Urkraft Begin Recording Earache Debut

Newly signed chaotic Death/Thrash Metalers Urkraft are due to enter Antfarm studios with renowned producer Tue Madsen this Saturday 16th of July to begin the 2 week recording session for their hotly anticipated Earache debut. As previously revealed the new album title will be 'The Inhuman Aberration', dealing with issues such as the subjective human perspective, megalomania and general full on aural battery.

Urkraft frontman Thomas has been asked to give a little insight into the bands thoughts and feelings as they prepare to enter the studio:

"Well, we have reached the point where we can't get much more ready for the studio as a band. As individuals we might do some more practicing at home though. During the last few days we have been working with the small details on all tracks, been doing some last minute changes and I think this has given the final touch some of the tracks needed."

Having already released the killer 2004 debut 'Eternal Cosmic Slaughter', also recorded at Antfarm, how do the guys feel about the material they have ready for the next record:

"We are really exited about releasing the next album. Urkraft were expected to do deep Death Metal on our debut, but obviously surprised some people by putting in more thrash than earlier. We still play a combination, but this release will be both a new side of Urkraft as well as moving a little back to the old days. It will be more noisy and chaotic, a lot faster, more brutal and with that overall dark feeling to it that the 'Eternal Cosmic Slaughter' album had. Especially the keyboard will have a more conspicuous role. It is not just used as a lay over, but will also be a part of the chaos and help support the attacks in the music."

So we have an idea what to expect musically but what themes will the lyrics be dealing with:

"With the lyrics for the title track 'The Inhuman Aberration' the subjective human perspective on things is questioned. The voice in the song might belong to a sick megalomaniac mind, but at the same time a mind that can comprehend and dare to face the primordial horrors that exist underneath human made ideas of reason and logic. 'The Inhuman Aberration' is not a concept album as such. Different voices speak and contradicting views exist within the lyrics. Overall the lyrics attempt to describe what man can not control: The subconscious powers within and the subversive grinding of the cosmos."
