Get Drunk on 'Apparitions' and Urfaust's Innovative Occult Black Metal

Truly dark, truly brilliant and truly original. You should hear this.

Netherlands duo Urfaust are true originals. Dark ambient, clean operatic vocals, black metal, and doom meld with an odd swing, creating a truly memorable death march that is nothing if not uniquely Urfaust. In a genre where staying true to your roots is applauded, Urfaust is innovating and pushing into new places while maintaining black metal's original message.

Urfaust's latest is the Apparitions 12 inch, a four track effort recorded in a single day and shipping today via Van Records. It's a dark record, bursting with sinister ambient passages and a legitimate favorite-song-of-the-year-so-far track in "The Healer." Don't miss it, stream that Apparitions 12 inch below.
