Sweet steaming eruption of satan’s nipples, what the shitting shit is this?
Unexpect. I almost have no words. My inclination is to just tell you to hit play and witness the sheer awesome power of these talented Canadian bastards, but then I wouldn’t be doing my job, would I?
…..sorry, couldn’t resist. This is technically Jimmy’s recommendation, so credit goes to him (or whoever told him about it), but Unexpect are all kinds of interesting. In their own words, they mix “elements of black, death, core, symphonic, progressive and melodic metal; classical, operatic, medieval, goth, electro, ambient, psychotic, noise and circus music with an occasional jazzy touch.” The septet includes a violin, keyboards/sampling, a singing contemporary dancer, a 9 stringed bass, 2 guitarists/singers and a drum. Holy fuck.
