NSP 161 : RŪR
- RŪR Digi-CD
Release date: March 30th,
RŪR was created by its sole
member C.L. in mid to late 2017. It was originally imagined as a
darker, more monotone and melancholic project consisting mainly of old
riffs made back in the early 2000s, but as recording of the first song
began the project took another direction. It steered towards what can
be heard on the debut release, simply named RŪR - higher tempo, less
melancholic and more epic melodies focusing a bit more on the riffing
while still retaining some of the ambient sound of the old material.
Inspiration comes mainly from escapism and dreams of other worlds -
dark, vast and wild. Main inspirations musically are the low-fi
dreamscape that is Paysage dHiver, the epic battle songs of Caladan
Brood, the blasting fury of Forteresse, the cosmic darkness of Mare
Cognitum, and of course old masters like Dissection, Burzum and Emperor.
Generally, RŪR could be described as powerful, vast and panoramic Black
Metal that sounds like an alloy of Nasheim, Paysage dHiver, Ethereal
Shroud, Mare Cognitum and Caladan Brood.
The first press of the CD comes as Collectors Edition in Digipack,
limited to 999 copies.
