No Clean Singing comments on the premiere of “Holocaust of Stars”
“From the first seconds, “Holocaust of Stars” is a breathtaking experience. It explodes immediately in a heavy-caliber percussive fusillade and a head-spinning display of riffing lunacy, everything moving at terrific speed and with untamed, exultant adventurousness. The explosive, mind-boggling energy of the music is augmented by raw, brazen vocals that become even more incinerating when the song hits its choruses and the music soars in glory (albeit a mad and mutilating glory).
There are more glories to come, including a pair of spectacular, fret-burning solos and an unexpected wisp of acoustic instrumentation, as well as an overflowing bounty of fleet-fingered, swirling and darting fretwork whose agility is matched by the lightning-fast drum- and bass-work, whose patterns veer with abandon from moment to moment. The music seems magical as well as crazed, and that might be the biggest surprise of all — that in the midst of so much lights-out technical exuberance the band somehow found a way to bring in melodic accents that become sorcerous and that linger.”
About The Release
New Hampshire-based blackened melodic death metallers Unflesh are excited to announce their second full-length, Inhumation. Set for release on Friday, April 2nd.
Inhumation comes a mere two years after the launch of their well-received 2018 debut album “Savior”, yet it showcases an incredible amount of new growth from a group already brimming with abundant talent as is. The group’s new album Inhumation also sees guitarist/vocalist Ryan Beevers (ex-Solium Fatalis) aided by two new members: bassist Orion Hubbard (ex-Excrecor) and drummer Jeff Saltzman (Aversed, Allegaeon (live), Continuum (live), ex-Solium Fatalis).
Regarding the musical direction on Inhumation, Ryan Beevers says: “For this album, there was a lot more focus on developing a lingering dark atmosphere throughout the record with the music and lyrics to create a more immersive listening experience. The album is a lot more dynamic and introduces some new elements into the Unflesh sound, all to enhance the mood within the album.”
Unflesh – Inhumation will strongly appeal to fans of Arsis, Dissection, Emperor, Necrophagist, Necrophobic, Naglfar, Tribulation, Obscura, and Revocation.
Unflesh vocalist/guitarist Ryan Beevers comments regarding Inhumation
“Inhumation delves into the concept of desensitization and losing one’s soul or losing one’s humanity so to speak. The title itself is used in a metaphorical sense, as the actual definition of the word “Inhumation” is the action or practice of burying the dead. For album purposes, the title is used on a more spiritual and emotional level. Each track on the album is a bit of a meditation on different aspects of the primary concept. When the listener gets to the last song on the album, the totality of the album will have taken form.
I was extremely focused on binding together the riffs and lyrics to channel a certain atmosphere I had in my head initially when writing the songs. The goal was to create a more immersive listening experience. I think this goal is also reflected in how the album sounds and in the artwork. Everyone involved worked very hard on this record. We are looking forward to sharing this album with the world and to finally document the next step in the Unflesh sound with this second full-length album.”
