Unearthly Trance : Nuit/Sonicburialhymns

What I've got here, is a CDr containing two demo's of the band: 'Nuit' and 'Sonicburialhymns'. However, there are a lot of musical resemblances between the two works. Therefore, this CD can be listened to as one sole entity.

Unearthly Trance can be described as the missing link between Winter, Grief and Neurosis (yeah right, try to figure this out). To be more specific: this is insane, oppressive and chaotic music with screaming vocals and a slight psychedelic touch (which is perhaps the element which distinguishes this band the most from the aforementioned acts). The 'groove' present on most of the tracks is especially comparable to the sound of Grief. Some weird parts with clean guitars bathing in strange psychedelic effects, serve as the 'bridge' between the heavy parts of this band. The production on both demo's is 'dirty',obscure and underground, creating a perfect match with the raw sound of this band.

This is no music for the harmonic doomsters among us who languish at the sweet violin sounds of the 'Bride. This is a tribute to ugliness and heaviness that shall most probably appeal to sludge doom fans and fans of bands like Winter and Burning Witch. Therefore, I urge those fans to check out and support this promising band.
