Since we decided to stop supporting big marketing mastodons, and get to some nearest relationship with our fans, we have stopped all our iTunes, Deezer or Spotify contracts. Download and full streaming of Pulvis et Umbra are now available on Bandcamp.
Here are some french live reports from our show at Hellfest Open Air on June the 22nd, 2013:
“Surtr propose un excellent doom qui ravit tous les fans de Candlemass, Black Sabbath ou encore Reverend Bizarre.” (Radiometal.com)
“Très bonne prestation pour les lorrains.” (VS-Webzine)
“Le trio rend hommage aux anciens de Black Sabbath, Reverend Bizarre ou Candlemass avec une maturité déconcertante.” (Lagrosseradio.com)
“Les français officient dans un doom-métal d’assez bonne facture. A revoir pour confirmation.” (Moonlight666.com)
We are proud to announce that SURTR will be performing at Dutch Doom Days XII in Rotterdam on Saturday the 19th of October 2013. Dutch Doom Days is one of the older Doom Metal Festival in Europe.

We hope to see you there!
We gave an epical interview for the great DoomMantia Webzine !
“Welcome barbarian doom heroes Surtr! They’re returning with their second LP “Pulvis et Umbra” to plunge our world in the very flames of Pagan Doom and Damnation! Even if one of the crew is injured others hold the banner high and they’re ready to march through Europe to get each of you wherever you hide! Yet don’t be afraid and accept Surtr riffs with your heart and soul.”
Read the entire interview on DoomMantia.
We answered a few questions about SURTR, “Pulvis et Umbra” and Doom Metal for Temple of Perdition.
“Andreas asked those visceral doomsters several questions which they nicely answered very quickly and eloquently ; beyond the obvious interest he has for this band, Andreas simply concluded by these words : “Just write that these guys are great people, down to earth and extraordinarily talkative” !!!”

At last, for object’s aficionados, the album is also released exclusively by Altsphere Production as a transparent blue vinyl LP limited to 300 hand-numbered copies and inluding CD, stickers and a button (only for the 100 first copies).
SURTR’s bass player Julien Kuhn is injured due to a tough fall. He brokes his left hand collarbone and has a displacement of it.
As Julien cannot play until May, the band decided to find a substitute for the Release Party of its new album Pulvis et Umbra.
SURTR also decided to cancel all the other shows planned before May.
Actually their next gig will be at the Valley stage at Hellfest Open Air 2013 in June.
We wish a good recovery to Julien.
