Unholy : Rapture




After a long break, the avantgarde doom metallers from Finland return with their third album. They didn't lose anything of the heaviness of their previous works, but now they added a feeling of melancholia to their music. Musically and through their artwork, Unholy take us back to the ice ages. The songs on this work sound like icecold, desolate hymns to the Northern nature. The lyrics are very poetic and complicated. The music sounds pretty simple at first sight, but once you catch the spirit of this work, its haunting melodies and depressive atmosphere never leave you any more.

What sets Unholy apart from most other bands in the doom metal scene, is that their music is so unique and unconventional that it always stays interesting, because it's too emotionally complicated to leave the listener indifferent. The acoustic intermezzo in the 13 minutes long doom epic 'Wunderwerck' lasts more than 5 minutes, proving that Unholy do only whatever they want to and that they don’t listen to any trends.

I still wonder, where do so many Finnish bands get this suicidal melancholy that crashes the heart of every doom freak?
