Modern metal outfit URAGH, venture into progressive realms as they explore personal and emotive lyrical themes in their upcoming album, Maelstrom. The quartet’s debut full-length was out on April 19th, 2024.

Craig Murphy comments:

“This album happened out of the blue … just a few months ago, we would never have dreamt about making an entire album, but somehow we got to this place. We are proud of what we have achieved – irrespective of how many people hear it or like it – to us it means the world; our own humble bit of artistic immortality. It’s a work of passion and determination, and if it means just a little bit to a few of you out there, we couldn’t be happier.”

Based in Dublin, Ireland, URAGH produce music that incorporates a combination of progressive, alternative, and modern metal. Formed by Marcelo Varge (guitar), in 2022. Marcelo was quickly joined by Jason Hodgkins on drums and Sebastian Sparr on bass. After months of searching for a vocalist, Craig Murphy eventually joined and completed the line up of what is now known as URAGH. The band unveiled their first single “Decimate” in June of 2023, before heading into to the studio to work on their debut full-length. The initial taste of Maelstrom, “Monarch” landed in November of last year showcasing the harsher and more abrasive sound intended for the album, a slight shift from the melodic “Decimate”. The latest single, “The Widening Gyre”, provides a further glimpse into the band’s musical direction embracing the proggier side of their sound, without neglecting the emotional outbursts that they have become known for during several cathartic moments in their gigs this year. 

It was my pleasure to have the band on the Interview to speak on the debut album and much on works with the band, Check out the complete coverage on the below YouTube video.
