‘Unortheta’ is a forty-minute frisson full of looming doom, blasting fury, and cavernous bellows that seem to emanate from the deep, below.

The record’s atmospheric palette ranges from the ethereal to the oppressive, oftentimes simultaneously. The strings pluck out atonal intricacies half-hidden behind the thick curtain of bass and errant melodies that tie the proceedings together, like a singular, continuous piece of infernal aural brooding.
This album is the culmination of a band steeped in death metal tradition throwing off the genre’s shackles and painting a fresh narrative in hues of black and blood. It is by no means easy listening. Rather, it is a treasure trove of rewards for your patient eardrums covered in high quality headphones late on a dark, star spangled night.
