Ural unleash new video for “Heritage”

Italian thrash metal powerhouse Ural is gearing up to release their highly anticipated third album, “Psychoverse”, scheduled for launch on October 10th through Xtreem Music in CD and digital formats. As a prelude to this explosive release, Ural has just unleashed a music video for the track “Heritage”, marking their third advance single.

Ural, a formidable crossover and old-school thrash metal band hailing from Italy, originally formed in 2010. Over the years, they’ve made their mark on the metal scene with notable releases such as a self-titled demo in 2011, the “Wasteland” EP in 2013, and two full-length albums, “Party With the Wolves” (2016) and “Just for Fun” (2019). In 2022, URAL continued to solidify their presence with the release of the “Cyber Requiem” EP, recorded at Mk2 Recording Studio in Ivrea under the guidance of Davide “BrutalDave” Billia (known for his work with Antropofagus, Beheaded, Hour of Penance). The EP was adorned with cover artwork by the renowned artist Luca SoloMacello.

During the early summer of 2023, after months of relentless effort, Ural wrapped up production on their highly anticipated third full-length album, “Psychoverse”. Recorded at the same studios as their previous EP and featuring artwork by the talented Luca SoloMacello, the album marks a new chapter in their relentless journey. The exceptional quality and relentless energy of Ural’s thrash metal attracted the attention of Xtreem Music, who eagerly signed on for worldwide promotion and distribution of the forthcoming album.

Ural’s music channels the spirit of ’80s Bay Area thrash, blending lunatic Voivod-like guitar riffs with infectious crossover vibes. Their contribution to the New Wave of Old School Thrash Metal scene is both authentic and unforgettable, standing proudly alongside bands like Municipal Waste, Iron Reagan, and Powertrip.

Metalheads, prepare for a wild ride through the “Psychoverse” and get ready to party with the wolves! Stay tuned for the release of “Psychoverse” on October 10th, 2023, through Xtreem Music in both CD and digital formats.
