Unorthodox




USA - Active.

Description

Stoner/Doom

One of the best of the cluster of old-school doom bands based around Washington D.C.  Although definitely Sabbath-influenced like most of the bands on the German Hellhound label, Unorthodox also exhibits psychedelic and progressive tendencies. Guitarist and vocalist Dale Flood sounds much like a slightly cleaner version of Wino from The Obsessed, St. Vitus and Spirit Caravan. Both albums are classics of the old-school doom genre.

Balance of Power (1995)

Misc

Originally the band was called Obstination. Then, before releasing any demos, they changed it to but changed it to the current because there was already a US band with that name. Ironically, the band changed to their current name before releasing the album 'Asylum'.

The split LP called 'Double Dose of Doom' sees the release of material from both the bands Obstination period as well as their Asylum period. The bands are listed seperately with the material produced under the respecive moniker. The other two bands to appear on the split are Rat Salad and Force. Some other websites lists this release as being titled 'A Double Dose of Doom' but we have not been able to verify whether the 'A' is really a part of the name or not.

Unorthodox are playing again after a prolonged period of inactivity. Members of Unorthodox have played in other D.C.-area bands: Ronnie Kalimon in Iron Man and Internal Void, Jeff Parsons in the speed metal band Indestroy and just about everyone who has ever played in Unorthodox have also played in Wretched.
