“Usurp The Throne” is the new full-length by the Norway-based black/viking metal outfit UBUREN, following the album “And The Mountains Weep” released in 2019.
The new effort is composed of eight tracks, united by a vision of God as a being who deceives through false prophecies and who enjoys playing with the destinies of men, rather than worrying about the pain experienced by them.
UBUREN observes the passage of time, of what has been and what will be. This is represented as a river soaked in blood, of that sin that cannot be removed from one’s souls – the sin that is passed on from father to son, because “none is forgotten, none is forgiven“.
For the band, Ragnarok is the final solution to overthrow God – the Usurper of the Throne – and erase the men’s eternal suffering. “Usurp The Throne” is a purifying fire made of torn voices and destructive riffs, ideal for fans of bands like Satyricon, Khold, Kampfar, and Enslaved. It is set to be released on the 20th of January, and it will be available as vinyl, digipak, streaming, and digital download via Dusktone.
