about

"Ur Draugr have created an absolutely powerful and mesmerizing release that displays the perfect contrast of magnificent, ominous atmospheres and heavy, grim riffs."
- hellhound music

"...a shape-shifting cascade of melancholy melody, hailstorm riffs, acrobatic drumming, and impassioned vocal malevolence."
- nocleansinging

"Like an angry bastard lovechild of Gojira, Enslaved and Behemoth..."
- metalmouth

Track Name: Unseen Golgotha
threads of faith unfurl
here in this dark

as pale usurpers exhort spite
the braziers die

reviled and crownless
bled to white
fell what we could not disinter

feed and fear all things

below the eye of the wild
we are suffered
to crawl in purity
when soiled wings
would bear us farther

unveiled and faceless
in respite
fell what we could not disinter

bear me flesh he grey of raiment
walketh closer to abyss than man

defiled and faithless
raven-eyed
fell what we would not disinter
Track Name: The Wretched Ascetic
unblessed null

held beneath flesh
secrets divulged by thin soil
i suffer more as i've loved less

i hide what i bleed

loss defers loss
black nothing
red leprous rain doth fall
upon the head of the righteous in wealth

peace teaches hate
white nothing
red leprous rain doth fall
upon the head of the righteous in wealth

kneel before the salt of the soil
lost absent anguish
wreak penance through honourless pain

i hide all i bleed

revenants gather for those who've never passed
the antichrist of the self
rises to greet their shrouded mouths
then comes the offer
in sanguine hands

held beneath flesh
secrets divulged by thin soil
i suffer more as i've loved less

null
Track Name: Sombre Moribund
all minds are speared
upon the voulge of time

thoughts run upon upon the edges
esoterica is as bile
