Finnish atmospheric sludge/doom metal band Lurk premiere the third single »Blood Surge« taken from their upcoming full-length album, »Aegis«, set to release on April 7th, 2023 via Transcending Obscurity Records.
Lurk about the new album: “»Aegis« embodies the power of discord feeding the individual. The songs roll out in sporadic forms of different persons, under the guidance of furor and perseverance. Those stem from all things which are against divinity. No void too deep or mind too obscure, no action too human.”
Transcending Obscurity Records:
Finnish band Lurk return with their unique brand of slow, dreamy, unpredictable and vile sludge/doom to confound and enthrall listeners all over again. The deceptively catchy and entrancing quality of the music has been honed and the music slithers in its inimitable way, progressing in directions not easy to ascertain. The music itself is a blend of multiple subgenres and is far too evolved now for the influences to be clearly identified. The band upholds this singular sound throughout the album and still manages to give each of the seven songs their own identity. Without a perceptible disruption of momentum, they all succeed in shifting the mood their own way, adding variations and conveying a wide range of emotions. For an album that may seem innocuous, it will leave you emotionally vulnerable by the end of it all.
