Format: Audio CD
Unearth represent a new breed of metal-influenced hardcore - combining jaw-dropping power and speed with a vast catalogue of influences. While the band doesn't precisely fit into the genre-label of 'New American Metal', it obviously draws from similar roots - relentless power, mid-tempo thrash riffs with pounding bass and brutal breakdowns. In effect, Unearth represents the unison of Gothenburg, New American Metal and hardcore.
What separates Unearth from the likes of Killswitch Engage, Lamb Of God and Shadows Fall is their flexibility. Guitarists Ken Susi and Buz McGrath both utilize seven string guitars, which allows them to incorporate passages of blistering European thrash alongside pummeling breakdowns and arse-kicking double bass accents on a signature seven string crunch. The result is a dynamic, aggressive and punishing style which is able to overcome the monotony of most 'New American Metal.'
Vocalist Trevor Phipps provides a standout performance on The Oncoming Storm - his thick hardcore rasp given the added dynamics of clean vocals alongside blistering screams courtesy of the production of Adam D (renown for his work with Killswitch Engage). Phipps' lyrics are also a cut above most - choosing to aggressively voice his political views (as opposed to resorting to the lovesick crooning of Killswitch), and judging from the content of "Black Hearts Now Reign" (an open reference to none other than G.W.) Phipps is none too happy with the current state of America.

To say Unearth are just another metalcore band would be a crime. You might say they are very generic indeed, but few bands pull off this kind of music quite like this band have managed to. Too many bands at the moment, it would seem, are prepared to slot in some softly sung choruses in order to make their music slightly more accessible. That's all well and good until a band starts to become bland, boring and slightly predictable.

Unearth on the other hand resist that particular temptation. Every time vocalist Trevor Phipps opens his mouth it's to let loose a brilliantly trained menacing growl. Few bands are blessed with such a voice. Add to that Unearth's great ability to unleash great riffs and breakdowns & you've got a pretty intense sound. To add melody to the mix, Unearth's influences from Gothenberg are clear to be seen, with both guitarists using 7-string guitars. This gives them that vital variety they need to distinguish themselves from the crowd.

It does also help that there's some really really good songs here. 'The Great Dividers' is an unrelenting, brutal opening to the album. There's also the thrash influenced 'Black Hearts Now Reign', leading into a short interlude of strings before the band rips into the dual guitaring on 'Zombie Autopilot' creating a fantastically effective one-two hit of power.

But it continues until the end, with only the instrumental 'Aries' to allow you to breathe. 'The Oncoming Storm' is clearly a well thought out & balanced piece of work.

What you have got here is a relatively unkown band creating no holds heavy metal to rival the biggest of bands, and it's one hell of an album

Unearth, are, easily said, the best heavy metal band i have heard for a long time. Now, i am a fan of many types of metal, from death, to black, to thrash, and may i say, this still impresses me.
This album has brought back the sheer brilliance of heavy metal, with influecing widening from In Flames, to Pantera, To Shadows fall. The beating down them all with this epic, inspirational album.
Ever single track is heavy, melodic, complex, diverse, and tons of other elements that make it perfect. From the heaviness of 'Bloodlust Of The Human Condition' To the atmospheric, melodic 'Aries'. Every track memorable, headbangable and every other 'able' there is, because it;s simple brilliant.
Every metal fan MUST own this epic album...now!

Well i downloaded the last album a few months back and could see they had potential, now with adam D from killswitch producing them they have reached it. This album is Phenominal. If you like Shadows fall and killswitch i dont think its possible you wont like this album. The drumming , Guitar playing and singing is all brutal and rapid. you may at first think that his voice is slightly one dimensional in the chimira sort of a way but the more you listen the more this album reveals. In my opinion a classic but hey, thats only mine. Hope you in enjoy it as much as i do.

I can safely say this has to be one of the best albums of 2004 by a long stretch. Any one who loves the intense riffs, the banging breakdowns, the insane vocals and the melting solos, will also love the oncoming storm...
if you've already heard Unearth, youll have an idea of what to expect, but if you havent...well thats a double reward.
The albums been produced with adam dutkiewiez of KSE, and from a simple guess... he wouldnt produce a crap album would he!?
But seriously, im not gonna go into masses of detail, just buy the damn CD, even if its the only one you buy this year!

This album really has stood the test of time and sounds as immense as it did on release. Crushing riffs, power-house drumming, brilliant lead work and some damn fine tunes make this arguably the best metalcore album ever released. The Great Dividers is a simply awesome opener and sets the tone for what's to come - unrelenting full-on metal! Arguably not the most original band in the world - the Slayer and Iron Maiden influences are so easy to spot - but when the end result is this good then there is only one message. Buy it!
