Following its premiere on Kerrang! Radio as Alex Baker’s Fresh Blood Artist of The Week, Ursus have shared their new video for “Totem” (available on all streaming platforms this Friday).
“Totem” was recorded by George Lever (Sleep Token, Loathe, Holding Absence) at G1 Productions, Wells, Somerset. The latest mammoth offering from Ursus has been packed with off-kilter time signatures, guttural screams and disgustingly brutal riffs leaving every last tooth in your skull rattling long enough for you to hit repeat.
“The concept and title Totem’ refers to a place where bodies would be stored before the ground became soft enough to dig, because of very cold temperatures; This was referred to as a “Totem house”. The lyrical content of the song is based around the story of a person being buried alive whilst their loved ones mourn, unaware they’re still alive and going through the most horrific and slow death.” – Joe Grimes

I am lost. I am gone. Devil sold my soul and I am finally done.
