About two years after the official release of their EP ‘Æthereal’ French post-metallers UNBURNT just shared a brand new single called “The Veil” and available right now on YouTube.
The song will featured on ‘PROCESSION‘, the band’s debut full-length album coming out on May 15th on LP & Digital through all platforms.
For fans of Neurosis, Ancestors, Unfold, The Ocean…
The gritty, doomy intro of “The Veil” instantly reminded me of Ancestors‘ Suspended In Reflections due to its organic atmosphere and power. The following part gets a little calmer, playing out in a dynamic interplay of harsh and clean sections.
Furthermore, the sound of UNBURNT creates a somewhat bipolar experience, one that can be extremely aggressive and powerful, but also calm, patient, and fragile. After half of the song is finished, a very Gojira-esque tapping section comes in – it’s particularly reminiscent of their song “Global Warming” because of its harmonics and melody. Very much unlike Gojira, though, Unburnt bring “The Veil” back to its doomy post-metal sound, which soon sees another melodic guitar part being added.
“The Veil” is a song that stands out thanks to its great contrasts, benefitting from Unburnt‘s raw, organic, and energetic sound. The band’s rhythmic sophistication makes their doom parts even more aggressive and unique.
At the border of several worlds, Unburnt‘s unconventional music is organic, sometimes dark or ethereal, tensed between emotion and brutality. In the same vein as Neurosis, Unfold or The Ocean. The lyrics are poetic metaphors inspired by an intimate experience and taken trough the filter of esotericism.
