Today we’re gonna talk a bit about Unearthly Trance and their new album. First of all i’d like to say i’m really happy they’re back with a new full length. For those of you who don’t know let me just state that Unearthly Trance is a three piece band from New York. The band came into existence back in 2000 and since then they have been producing albums of exquisite sludge/ doom metal like ”Season Of Séance, Science Of Silence”.
”Stalking the Ghost” was released on the 24th of February. First of all i’d like to comment on the album’s front cover artwork and that’s because it is simply impressive. It’s like a statement. It’s like someone is saying ”This is how it is supposed to be done”. Eight tracks are included in this release. It starts with ”Into the Spiral”, a song that is a perfect intro for this album. ”Dream State Arsenal” is the album’s song and in my opinion it is a beast of a song. Certainly one of this album’s best tracks. ”Scythe” that comes next is another great song. It sounds beyond heavy and raw. ”Famine” stands out for its immense groove and its really nice riffs. ”Lion Strength” is nothing more than pure badassery. I’m definitely down with this song. ”Invisible Butchery” is another favorite of mine. I loved this track’s vocals and its stone cold atmosphere. Wait till you listen to ”The Great Cauldron” though. There’s a certain sense of epicness throughout this song. Check it out and see for yourselves. Last but not least we find ”In the Forest’s Keep”. Our journey has reached its destination. I can assure you it was a great journey.
We’re still in the mid of march. However i think it’s quite impressive that so many great albums have been released in just 2.5 months time. It is my strong belief that ”Stalking The Ghost” is one of these albums. Unearthly Trance have made a glorious return and we’re more than happy to welcome them back.
