Urkraft, Denmark ’s most surprising newcomer has signed to Voice Of Life Records for their next Albums. Urkraft was formed back in ’95 and since then they have gone through several line-up changes, won the Danish “Melodeath Grand Prix 2001” and recorded four Demos so far. They have released their 2003 demo “Primordial” a few weeks ago. Urkraft will hit the studio in January 2004 to start the recordings of their, to date untitled, debut Album.
