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

Having played with a host of inspiring bands like Loathe, Shields, Lotus Eater, Our Hollow Our Home and Parting Gift, sell out home town shows, smashing it at Techfest 2018 and Holloween 2019, and with their highly anticipated debut EP set to drop at the end of the year, the Swindon/Bristol based 4-piece are ready to be your new favourite band of 2021. 

Ursus are:

Joe Grimes - vocals :: James Matthews - guitar  :: Ryan Martin - bass :: Aaron Black - drums

Featured Artist of the Week, Kerrang! Radio Fresh Blood, February 2019
'[Totem] has totally blown my mind this week. Utterly savage!' - Alex Baker

Ursus release their debut EP on November 27 2020.

Produced and mixed by George Lever [Loathe, Sleep Token, Holding Absence], and mastered by Mike Kalajan [Circa Survive, The Bronx, Emmure], YOURGODISDEAD tells a story of how the tiniest visual horrors can turn an unstable brain into an unstable being.
