Syracuse, N.Y. quintet UNHOLY will release their Prosthetic Records debut, New Life Behind Closed Eyes, on May 12th. The new track 'Seeker Immortal' off the upcoming album (recorded at More Sound Studios[Ed Gein] in Syracuse) is currently streaming on the group's MySpace page.
Pre-order packages are now available in the Prosthetic webstore.
New Life Behind Closed Eyes -- the follow-up to the group's 2007 debut, Blood Of The Medusa (Lambgoat Records) -- sees new vocalist Billy Price paint a scathing portrait of mankind's failures and shortcomings. The album's concept, written by guitarist Jonathan Dennison, revolves around an end-time narrative of the final days of humanity delivered by its own hand. Richly detailed artwork furthers the album's unsettling mood, but ultimately, it's the music within -- a very heavy take on the northeastern metal sound, with strong riffs, intense vocals and sharp soloing -- that makes Unholy impossible to ignore.
“We've poured a lot of blood into this new record and hope this will be a soundscape to your nightmares. The aggression and energy of Unholy has truly been captured in New Life Behind Closed Eyes. This record is for people who are looking for something more in heavy music. Extreme music fans old and new prepare to get your faces shredded off!" - Guitarist Jonathan Dennison
Unholy were recently confirmed as support for EARTH CRISIS' spring US tour, which kicks off May 2nd in Fredericksburg, VA at KC's (Armageddon Fest). The group will also support label mates ALL THAT REMAINS in Syracuse on April 15th and perform at the New England Metal and Hardcore Festival on April 18th.
"We're more than excited to go on the road with such a genre defining band as Earth Crisis, beyond great friends they've been a part of our lives since day one," comments Jonathan Dennison.
