Zippy / Mediafire

Let's do another contribution tonight and one that fits quite well into a Friday night, this is the first release of Urn, dating to 1997 and re-released in 1999 on vinyl by Damnation Records as "I Am Your Nightmare" with exactly the same content. When comrade unholydeath offered me this among other things he had ripped some time ago I gladly took it as my copy of the tape, which I had gotten some beer-drenched night in bar Valhalla back in Kuopio, is pretty much in unplayable condition nowadays. So, thanks to him for another donation! A cover scan is enclosed.

If you haven't heard old Urn material, the most obvious and easiest comparison would be with old Barathrum, seeing how the founder and mastermind Sulphur, as well as the other founding members Pimeä and Infernus were former Barathrum members this is hardly coincidental. Urn sounds a wee bit more thrashy, despite that unholydeath's comment how this is more like vintage Barathrum than B itself is certainly not without merit. Similar mostly midtempo pace and an aura of darkness combined with rather simple songs. Goes well with beer or another alcoholic beverage of your choice so download already and get hammered, I'm off to work.

Thank you! Great promo. You do not know, the band still broke?

You're welcome, gentlemen.

@Стас Проклятый:

I think they're at least partially active. They've done some gigs though the most recent one I remember was the Darkness Festival V (August 2013) which they cancelled and I seem to remember another quite recent cancellation as well so I'm not really certain at all. Maybe the social media people can confirm this from FB or something?

AFAIK, Urn is not an active band anymore. Last show was... Jalometalli 2010 I suppose? Sulphur is working on a new project, what I heard lately.

I guess you're right, I was trying to think back when I last saw 'em live and it would seem to have been the first Black Flames in 2009! Fuck, I was sure it wasn't that long ago. I guess I was thinking to some event they cancelled or something.
