About URN

The (expired link) dark metal band URN® is one on a musical journey exploring the darker aspects of both the conscious mind and the unconscious soul. The band has been captivating audiences across multiple genres and have been establishing themselves as one the more energetic live acts to see. The band has drawn comparisons by national trade media to such artists such as Type O Negative, Lacuna Coil, Amorphis, Nightwish, My Dying Bride and other similar acts that tend to find a certain beauty in darkness.

URN actually has its beginnings as far back as 1994 in Cleveland, OH. Founder Dominic St. Charles while attending college had been working in commercial radio upon his graduation and was heavily involved in two bands, with URN being very much a death metal incarnation (Dominic was not the singer however). URN would play heavily in the "rust-belt" area having done many shows in the metal scene and opened for a couple of national acts as part of local festivals sponsored by larger rock radio stations.

Around the same time, he also had a gothic-rock band called Sacrosanct of which good college friend, Michelle Belanger was the singer. Due to an unforeseen accident in 1996, the one member suffered an injury that sidelined URN for an indefinite period at the time. It was essentially the end of that line-up and Dominic found work playing lead guitar for a couple of national acts, most notably of these was for The Electric Hellfire Club.

This incarnation of URN began back in 2000, while Dominic was still an active member of the Electric Hellfire Club. For the most part, despite his great experience with them, he felt it was time again for him to pursue his own thing. Teaming up with some of his friends and musical students at the time, he somewhat made a hybrid of the two bands and was urged him to use the URN moniker once again.

After fulfilling tour obligations with The Electric Hellfire Club, URN then went out on two tours in 2001 once in the spring with the Babylonian Tiles and then in the fall with Gossamer, which had been affected by the events of September 11.

The band recorded and released a maxi-single called "Consecrated Ashes" to assist in touring for 2002 and sold out the 500 copies of the self-release.

In 2003, the band followed up that release with the "Desecrated Ashes" EP and was met with great success and acclaim. The album received strong airplay support via college and Internet stations all through the United States as well as in Mexico and Canada. URN has also done a several simulcasts with Internet radio stations such as IPM Radio and Metal Works Radio.

URN signed with Rotting Corpse Records in the fall of 2005 and released their full-length LP "Dancing with the Demigods" with major chain-store distribution through Century Media, Synergy Distribution and Azure Green in July 2006. The album has received rave reviews in many major trade magazines such a Pit Magazine, Explicitly Intense, New Witch, Dark Realms, The Ninth Gate, Brave Words and Bloody Knuckles, and many more. This album has been out of print since 2008.

As a result, URN toured extensively throughout the United States and Canada and in the process toured/shared the stage with honored acts such as Moonspell, Type O Negative, To/Die/For, Katatonia, Virgin Black, Trouble, Bella Morte, Novembers Doom, Celtic Frost, and many notable others.

The band has also appeared at many high-profile conventions throughout North America such as Ancient Ways in Chicago, KiNvention North in Kitchener, Endless Nights in New Orleans, Radio Active in Detroit, GenCon in Indianapolis, The International Body Art Expo in Columbus, Paganstock in Michigan, Doomsday Metal Festival in Milwaukee and the Long Black Veil in New York.

URN has through their ongoing collaborations with artists of other mediums such actor Don Henrie, appearing in URN’s video for their "Shadow Dancer" single which was nationally distributed to many media channels and is available on the album as well.

The band released their second full-length LP in 2009 on Rotting Corpse Records entitled "Scribings of a Forgotten Soul". This was a concept album based on the true accounts of individuals that singer/guitarist Dominic knew that survived the 1989 prison riots at the State Correctional Institution – Camp Hill in Pennsylvania.
With its release, URN took to the road once again in support of the new album, playing all over North America, including tour dates with Tarja, Finntroll, The Eternal, Swallow the Sun, Katatonia, Blackguard, and Lividity. The band released another promotional video for the single "Reckoning Hour".

In October 2011, Urn relocated from Chicago, IL to Orlando, FL and proceeded to continue to do headlining tours throughout North and Central America. In early 2014, URN signed with Dark Moon Records and released their fourth studio full-length album entitled "Epiphany" on August 25, 2015 as well as their promotional video for the single "Cast in Amber".

The band embarked on a (expired link). tour to support the release highlighted by attending the 2016 Winter NAMM show in Anaheim and will be releasing a promotional video for the self-titled track from the “Epiphany” album in Spring 2016.

So to our San Diego friends, we are looking to finalize your date once the venue owner is back from holiday early next week. Please check in on our FB and IG pages for that official announcement.

Many of you on N1M have been asking about new music and we will be debuting five (5) new songs during this tour and we enter Lowland Studios in Orlando, FL the following weekend to finish up recordings on three (3) of these.

We're in talks with a new record producer and a couple of labels, so no official release date yet on the music, but we do promise and commit to you that it will be out in earlier 2020.

We also are having a end-of-the-year clearance sale for some of our merch at main store on our flagship website:

Greetings everyone and we want to take this opportunity to thank everyone for all of the amazing feedback that we've been receiving here on N1M. It's very humbling to know that our music and efforts are touching you all in some way. This is why we create the music and art that we do and will continue to do so.

Many of you have asked about some new music/projects that we may have coming, and we wanted to share with you that we have an amazing opportunity to work with Emmy Nominated make-up and special effects artist Cleve Hall, who many know from his own reality show MONSTER MAN on the SyFy Network. Besides creating FX for films, Mr Hall has worked with bands like KISS, Alice Cooper, Marilyn Manson, Insane Clown Posse, Tenaceous D, and DEVO (who actually wrote a song about him)!

Mr. Hall as expressed his desire to produce the music video for our "Black Widow" single from our current album Epiphany. So as you can see, we're honored and beyond excited about this endeavor.

Seeking the creative opportunities available working with independent filmmakers and music acts, Mr. Hall has expressed a desire to produce/film a promotional video for our song "Black Widow" from our Epiphany album and we will be filming on location in Florida in April 2017.

As you may understand, there is usually cost involved with a higher-level production such as this and we are currently running a crowd funding campaign to help defray the cost for this production. We do offer some incredible perks if you wish to obtain some rare URN merchandise and music. For those who wish to make a contribution, here is the link to the campaign:

(expired link)

Elsewhere, we are in the studio at this time working on the material for our next album tentatively entitled Semicolon, we'll start posting updates on our progress as we go. For those of you in South Florida, URN will be performing live at these upcoming dates:

Friday, February 18th - Howl Gallery/Fort Myers, FL
Saturday, February 19th - Kryptonite Metal Festival - Churchill's/Miami, FL

Once again, thank you all for your love and continued support. We vow to continue to bring you our greatest efforts and quality in our music for you to share with us.

Cheers!

Dominic, Julian, David, Christopher, and Eric (collectively known as URN®)
