Danish thrash/death metallers URKRAFT have inked a multi-album, worldwide deal with Earache Records.

Formed in the small Danish provincial town of Svendborg and now residing in Copenhagen, the five piece released their debut album, "Eternal Cosmic Slaughter", in March 2004. Blending an unnerving sense of aggression, speed and flesh-peeling vocals, URKRAFT also expertly incorporate the use of atmospheric, soul penetrating keyboards adding another dimension to their already massive sound.

Set to record their second album at Antfarm studio with Tue Madsen in July/August, the band warn fans to expect something altogether darker and more brutal than the already jaw-dropping first record.

Commented frontman Thomas: "When we started out, we always had the 'Ear-plugged' compilation in the CD player and were of course motivated by the many cool acts featured on that cd. Now URKRAFT is signing with the same label that in our eyes has been releasing some of the most important metal bands. We are looking forward to release our second album and to co-operate with Earache Records in the next chapter of URKRAFT and our metal music."

URKRAFT will make their next live appearance at The Rock in Copenhagen, Denmark on May 13. Also appearing on the bill will be Sweden's ORIGIN BLOOD.
