Murw "Kanker" out now on lp and cd.

Long awaited debut album of Murw out now on lp and cd. One of The Netherlands' best kept secrets return with a truly stunning and groundbreaking album of progressive death/doom metal. Extraordinary, unconventional and creative songwriting, this album is nearly impossible to compare with any existing band or fit in any existing genre. Murw is not a newcomer one-day-fly performing a cheap, new gimmick trying to stand out. Throughout their history, dating back to the early 90s where the band already did shows supporting Emperor for example, they've shown a unique own style of music, now finally culminating into their debut album "Kanker".

Produced with the utmost priority and care and carefully following the wishes and requests of the band. This record sounds and looks as good as possible and as intended by band and label. Dedicated lp-mastering for optimal analog sound, resulting in more dynamic sound that perfectly fits to the diverse songwriting and fluctuating structures.

Recorded and mixed at Vato Loco, Austria, by M. Schirenc (Pungent Stench, Hollenthon), August 2010. Vinyl pre-mastering at Tuanti, The Netherlands, by A. Peeks (Heimdalls Wacht, Ancestors Blood), March 2012.

Full color sleeve and insert (lp) and full color 8 page foldout booklet (cd) with lyrics and drawings. Both lp and cd are pressed in West-Germany. No DMM-mastering for the lp (if you want your records to sound digital, you might as well listen to mp3s).

Also we're fed up with low quality mp3 and shitty youtube rips on the internet so I have uploaded the entire album here to listen: http://heidenshart.bandcamp.com/album/kanker

Cd available for 10 euro + postage;
Lp available for 12 euro + postage.
Both are available at the band directly or at Heidens Hart Records: www.heidenshart.nl.nu

Laat maar zien en ik ben weg
als sneeuw voor de zon"

"Leer te kijken
naar wat achter bomen leeft
En naar wat jou 's nachts
je dromen geeft

Ook overdag
zijn wij er 'k heb het vaak gezegd
Voor wie dat gelooft
bestaan wij echt

FeeŽn, trollen, toverdingen,
vogels praten, vissen zingen,
geloof mij nou, misschien
kan jij ons dan ook zien
Voor David is geen huis te klein,
het allerkleinste staat in kabouterland"

Sorry for promoting this release so much, needs to be heard...

MURW 'Kanker' CD/LP

Unique death/doom metal with old-fashioned quality and songwriting! In times of countless useless re-releases of questionable "classics", Murw stands out on their own. Not through cheap gimmicks or crowdpleasing sing-a-long popmelodies, but with pure originality and quality! Wellwritten death/doom metal, for fans of old The Gathering, old Paradise Lost, Esoteric, Mournful Congregation, Ved Buens Ende/Virus!
