URT Hard At Work On New Material

Drummer/main songwriter Thon of Estonian fierce pagan metallers URT has issued the following update:

"In 2010 URT will start with the next opus. We have already written nine basics and have already started playing five of the new songs. But will start seriuosly in January.

"This will be great to work again on new stuff. The pause has been already over five months with no full-lineup rehersals. We can also say that this time we are going for a different studio, so we are all excited about everything… So summer/autumn 2010 we will hit the studio hard!"

Working songtitles set to appear on the next CD include:

* Pimedusemürgiga Valatud
* Irdhallitus
* Verijõgi Varjuta
* Nõgimust
* Viimne Surmatants

URT recently inked a deal with Beneath The Fog Productions for the U.S. release of its fourth studio album, "Ex Mortuis - Saatanhark III". The CD was previously made available via Arhailised Helid. The first-edition limited digipack contains a bonus cover song "Tütarlaps kloaagis", originaly by RUJA, plus the "Uinuva Kaevu Saladus" clip, which can be viewed below.

URT (the South-Estonian Setu language word for "Soul of Death") was formed in 2004 and has thus far released one demo, four full-length albums and a split. The group's music is described as "a mix of agressive black and death metal with lots of atmospheric, pagan and epic passages. Lyrics (mostly in Finnish-Ugri Estonian language) are philosophical and paganic (inspired by myths of 'Põhjala'), like mantras of becoming oneself a man with forces of Nature (Hell)."
