Ok here is a big announcement ya fellow doomsters : Jeff and the rest of the band decided to part ways. But, as we have a split EP on fire, which shall see the dark of night in the first part of 2015, and to make up for the man, we will have two special guests on these new songs : Riff Master Christophe Lacroix from the mighty instrumental doom band Caldera, and singer Aymerick Lome from the excellent doom band Father Merrin. We already heard their work on the new material and we can assure you that it’s going to bring SVRTR to a whole new level !
“Hey folk ! It has been a little while since our last post ! Today, we are proud to announce that Julien is now endorsed by Reverend Guitars. We rehearsed last week end with it and it sounds really great ! Congratulations bro !!” (Picture © Adeline Dufresne)
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 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” !!!”
