Volur Posts New Track "Breaker Of Skulls"

Toronto-based experimental doom trio Volur will release sophomore album, "Ancestors," on June 2nd via Prophecy Productions. Produced by the band and mixed by Charles Spearin (Broken Social Scene), "Ancestors" is the follow-up to Volur’s debut album "Disir."

In advance of the record's release, today new song "Breaker of Skulls" comes online and can be heard below.

“‘Breaker of Skulls’ is a dark, sludgy slab of doom inspired by the ancient Icelandic warrior poet Egil Skallagrímsson, a man who fought terrible battles across the North Sea," comments the band. "He was at once barbarous and poetic. A man who would commit a brutal act of violence and then recite a beautiful poem immediately after. The song was inspired by his epic poem, ‘The Loss of My Sons'. It moves from a combative, gnarly sludge riff to a bittersweet and almost beautiful conclusion, all the while filled with yearning chromatic movement. The piece finds the band at its most aggressive, and almost its most experiment with disjointed improvised passages paired against bleak heavy doom.”
