Urskog are a solo project from Sweden that plays a mixture of death metal, thrash, punk and sludge and this is a review of his 2017 ep "Sprider Sporer" which was released by Ididit Records.
A very hard, heavy and melodic sound starts off the ep and also mixes in a great amount of old school influences and after awhile crossover style vocals and thrash influences are added onto the recoridng along with some death metal growls and the music also mixes in a great amount of punk and d beat elements.
A great amount of sludge elements can be heard in the slower riffing while a decent amount of high pitched screams can be heard and when guitar solos and leads are utilized they remain true to an old school style of extreme metal and while t he music is very retro it also sounds very modern all at the same time.
Urkskog plays a musical style that takes sludge, punk, death and thrash metal and mixes them together to create a sound of his own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics a re written in Swedish and cover envoromental issues and Nordic Mythology.
In my opinion Urkskog are a very great sounding mixture of death metal, thrash, punk and sludge and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this solo project. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Ur Skogen". 8 out of 10.
