Fresh off a premiere on Alex Baker‘s show on Kerrang! Radio, where they were tipped as the Fresh Blood Artist Of The Week, Bristol technical metal quartet URSUS have just unveiled a new single, ‘Totem’.
Speaking about the single, which also has an accompanying video, vocalist, Joe Grimes had the following to say.
“The concept and title ‘Totem’ refers to a place where bodies would be stored before the ground became soft enough to dig, because of very cold temperatures. This was referred to as a “Totem house”. The lyrical content of the song is based around the story of a person being buried alive whilst their loved ones mourn, unaware they’re still alive and going through the most horrific and slow death.”
