Ur Tid is a Death/ black metal inspired project from Sweden. It’s a solo project of mine that took form in the shadows of my other band In My Embrace.
The vision of Ur Tid has existed many years. Perhaps it’s always been there, lurking in the background, trying to reach the surface. But I have never really known what to do with it. It wasn’t until early 2016 a need for a creation of my own got so strong that I couldn’t fight it anymore. In fall that same year, the time seemed right to pick up the guitar and start scratching on the surface of what would become Ur Tid’s first creation. The Ep Towards Dark Endless was finished in February 2018.
The core subjects that defines and drives Ur Tid is the parasitic way and downfall of the human race. Death, darkness and soul sickness. How the human society fucks us up until the very essence of our soul withers away and dies.
The musical inspiration comes from the true kings of the Scandinavian 90’s and 00’s black and death metal scene. To mention a few of those who had the most impact on me; Dissection, Immortal, Satyricon and Hypocrisy among others. Even though Ur Tid isn’t as extreme as those bands, they are still the main source of inspiration.
The name Ur Tid is about death itself, it means “passing away” (die). Or from another point of view; you slip out of the dimension of time and in to an eternal state where time and light doesn’t exist. A place where the fundamental principles of what we define as hell rule.
