Formed in the summer of 2017 and best described musically as 'relentless and intensing punishing', Ursus create wall-of-sound metal grooves armed to the teeth with filthy, tech-ridden riffs, with a touch of melodic harmony. With a sound that overwhelms the average small stage, their voracious and finely crafted live sets are impressive, earning them praise and recognition amongst their peers and fans alike. 

Their debut EP 'YOURGODISDEAD', recorded and mixed by George Lever (Loathe, Holding Absence, Sleep Token), which tells the story of how the tiniest visual horrors can turn an unstable brain into an unstable being, was released in November 2020, which, alongside visually engaging accompanying music videos for each track, was very well received. 

2022 is a time of change - Ursus 2.0 is inbound. 


'Ursus are relatively new on the scene, but have exploded with a riotous cacophony of black metal infused tech that hits with a gut punch of ferocity and precision that ensures every blow is hit with critical damage' - Dead Press, Bands to watch in 2021
