Technical death metal outfit UNALIGNED are now streaming their new video “Occhiolism” exclusively at Decibel Magazine. The song is taken from their most recent release, Inner Dimensions, which was released on CD on January 27th, 2023. Stream the track HERE.
The band comments: Occhiolism to us conceptually, is our awareness, in that we all subconsciously know we are being misled and deceived, and yet still tread the path of destruction, in a world with seemingly endless potential, and infinite possibility. Musically, Occhiolism, is the culmination of everything we hoped to achieve with our debut. We brought intensity, melody, dissonance, and groove into an all encompassing piece. We harnessed intense emotion into the track that comes from a very personal place, with a goal to resonate with people who have experienced this sensation we call “Occhiolism”.
UNALIGNED began in 2020 and unites vocalist Andrew Guia with guitarist/bassist Taylor Tidwell of ACCURSED CREATOR, and decimating drummer Jack Blackburn (KILLATORIUS, ex-DEMON KING, ex-INFERI, and many others), Shane Dreher joining the fold on rhythm guitar in 2022, after the release of Inner Dimensions.
The band expounds on Inner Dimensions: “Inner Dimensions is a concept album that takes the listener deep into the refuge of one’s own mind, challenging the listener to explore and overcome the very fabrics of their own destined reality, while coming to face with the inner turmoils and demons of their life. To overcome or to be overcome, one will only find within the Inner Dimensions.”
Inner Dimensions was initially released on April 22, 2022. The band wears their musical and creative influences on their sleeve and creates an effective dual approach the doesn’t skimp on heaviness, grooves, and brutality, while also taking things full-throttle in the tech death arena.
UNALIGNED takes pride in their originality and aspires to advocate individuality in both sound and theme, as well as thought, and to carve our own path and legacy amongst the metal genre and music as a whole.
