London metal trio Urne will release their debut album Serpent & Spirit on June 25 via Candlelight Records.
The band just shared the video for “The Palace of Devils & Wolves.”
Bassist/vocalist Joe Nally comments, “When it came to writing ‘The Palace of Devils & Wolves,’ we wanted to write a straightforward heavy metal song compared to some of the longer pieces on Serpent & Spirit. Inspired by late ’70s-Judas Priest and Megadeth Countdown to Extinction with our own spin, I believe we wrote a song that will have people headbanging at shows and festivals all over.”
As for the video, Nally says, “The video was shot by Gav Thane and edited by our very own Angus Neyra. We took huge inspiration from the classic ’90s metal videos; if there was a new Drilling the Vein video compilation coming out now, we would want this video on there. We wanted the grittiness of ‘Davidian’ (Machine Head) mixed with the energy of ‘Slave New World’ (Sepultura) but again, with our own spin.”
During the writing process for Serpent & Spirit, Nally found an old demo of the first few minutes of the track and instantly knew it had to be finished. “Desolate Heart” subsequently became the first single released from the album.
