MURW - 'KANKER'
Debutalbum of progressive doom/death metal, to be released december 2011.

The album will come with a big foldout booklet including lyrics and drawing. LP-version might follow later.

Tracklist:
1. Kanker 7:38
2. Als sneeuw voor de zon 11:46
3. De buitenstaander 7:38
4. Artificiality 10:38


Pre-listen: http://soundcloud.com/herjann-1/
Further info: http://www.heidenshart.nl.nu | http://www.murw.info


Fanzine reviews:
9,5 / 10 Don't count on it reviews: "It's quite the abstract little piece and expresses some quite odd and avant-garde tendencies. I was thoroughly impressed."
9,5 / 10 Lady Metal (Ger): "A lot of excitement and truly awe some melancholy that makes my heart beats faster. Simply and only brilliant, yet heavy to digest!"
9 / 10 Hateful Metal (Ger): "A very impressive work. Multifaceted and unconventional, yet never too twisted. Recommended to everyone who likes original music, that despite experiments or progressive elements, is still dark and traditional."
9 / 10 Stormbringer (Aut): "Every track is a diverse and melancholic play of music. Not boring for a second!"
8 / 10 Folk metal (Aut): "Murw presents itself in four songs and 37 minutes playing time extremely creative. The new album is very extreme, dark, lingering, and for many certainly too heavy to take."
8 / 10 Rotting Hill (Aut): "A unique album with awesome passages, a lot of diversity and daring experiments. Murw remains one of the most promising bands in the underground!"
8 / 10 Metal Rulez (Pol)

Murw - 'Kanker' cd edition is available! The long awaited debut of one of The Netherlands' best kept secrets is here - a truly stunning and groundbreaking album of progressive death/doom metal. Extraordinary, unconventional and creative songwriting. Lp edition is scheduled for march/april; we are currently preparing artwork and audio for this format.


In the mean time, we've received new fanzine reviews!

8,1 / 10 Metalfan (Nld): "The compositions are intriguing; Kanker is an interesting and thought through work, that will convince many fans of original, innovative black metal."

8,9 / 10 Vaskarc Zine (Hun)


Preview listening: http://soundcloud.com/herjann-1/murw-kanker-preview
Order at: www.heidenshart.nl.nu

Mailorder news: Mailorderlists have been carefully updated with tons of new stuff which arrived during the last couple of weeks. I've been too busy to keep this updated because of many shows and my job, so I've spend a few hours completely checking, adding and updating the stock. Also during cleaning, I found many old items that were never paid for, put aside, forgotten, etc... NOTE: Send your reservations NOW because another BIG cd and vinyl update is coming after this weekend!

Final touches on the audiomaster and layout for the lp release are being done, hope to submit the masters to the factory next week.

In the mean time, we've received some more fanzine reviews:

9 / 10 Stereo Invaders (Ita): "Creativity comes out of this misanthropic ensemble in all its dark splendor. The depth of the sound created will tear, and tears will leave you shocked. Great test of a great and unpredictable band, the hope I had in them became complete confidence!"

9 / 10 Pest webzine: "Utterly rich in variety and expressing high intolerance against observing stylistic borders. The profound and far-reaching riffing is an interesting implementation of avant-garde, progressive, doom and even post-rock elements, with a slight tendency towards 70s psychedelic rock. I consider this release mature and highly advisable. It certainly reflects largely successful experimentation with uncommon and not easily reconcilable schemes within the genre, constituting in an utterly creative and melancholic, dramatic as well as psychedelic album."

8,5 / 10 Heavy Metal Tribune: "Kanker sees the band taking more orchestral direction, with elements like an operatic female backing vocals. If one were looking for sorrowful and depressive metal (or an extreme metal version of works of bands like Katatonia), Kanker is definitely worth checking out."

80 / 100 Aardschok magazine: "An adventurous and fascinating album, particulary good because of the unexpected twists!"

Forbidden Magazine (USA): "Layers of guitars form an atmosphere that is quite mystical, melancholic and breathtaking. An abundance of musicianship and songwriting finesse make a great impression on ‘Kanker’ and creates a unique album so that fans of well arranged extreme metal will have no qualms when recommending it to friends."


- As expected, the album has also hit the blogspots, so download it and decide for yourself.

Testpressings for the "Kanker" lp has been approved and the lp has gone in production. The dedicated vinylmastering gave the record a more dynamic sound, perfectly fitting to the diverse songwriting. Estimate release is 2-3 weeks! In the mean time, here are some more reviews:


"“Kanker” is a very well-crafted release that deserves attention. At times it sounds like something that Mournful Congregation or Shape of Despair could have crafted. Murw managed to consolidate their sound very well and deliver a great release." (88/100) - Infernal Masquerade (Spain)


"I’m not sure I’ll hear a better-produced album this year." (3/5) - Metal Ireland (Ire)


"Their approach to black metal has simply generated a very original and genre-defining brand of black metal. Definitely one of the most interesting black metal albums to be released in the last couple of years, Murw's Kanker is definitely a piece of art. It is expressive. It is challenging. It is unique. If you like avant-garde and progressive black metal, you will have to check this one out." (4/5) - Sea Of Tranquility (USA)


"Interesting, special, and guaranteed never boring. Recommended!" (9/10) - Medazzarock (Swi)


"The bulk of this album is massive, progressive and riffy. It incorporates unheard melodies and interesting accords. Slow and fast parts alternate timely and naturally, creating authentic atmosphere, sound and, above all, harmony. Kanker shows high skill level. Looking back at previous works by Murw it is clear that they never tried to play “like” somebody and this album is not an exception. This album is not something you’ve heard. Analogies can be drawn here and there, but they are weak and insignificant." (9,6/10) - Metal archives (USA)


"Definitely one of the most interesting black metal albums to be released in the last couple of years, Murw's Kanker is definitely a piece of art. It is expressive. It is challenging. It is unique. If you like avant-garde and progressive black metal, you will have to check this one out." (4/5) - Sea of tranquility

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



"Is er nog een plekje over, een kleintje?
Laat maar zien en ik ben weg
als sneeuw voor de zon"

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!

Hear for yourself: http://heidenshart.bandcamp.com/album/kanker

Listening to 'In De Mond Van Het Onbekende Wacht Een Oceaan' right now...exactly what I'm after right now, great mix of psychedelic doom and BM.

Will check out Kanker once I've had my fill with this album.
