01.21.10 – MOVE FORWARD UNTIL YOU ARE DEAD

Below information taken from The Unravelling website:

The Unravelling is an eclectic progressive rock/metal band from Calgary, Canada. Described by Pure Grain Audio as “overflowing with a blood-thirsty passion”, the Unravelling's music ranges from the engaging and inviting to the aggressive and controversial. A confidante of the band remarked that "The Unravelling sounds like the illegitimate love child of Lisa Gerrard And Zack de la Rocha". Suite 101 says "This is a band who can combine the alternative stylings of Tool with the adventurousness, ambition and refusal to compromise of The Dillinger Escape Plan". Music Connection Magazine named them in their top 25 new music picks of 2009. They have opened for acts such as Helmet and Bison BC, topped the CJSW Metal charts, and were nominated for 3 2010 Alberta Metal Awards, winning in the best album production category.

Their debut full length album "13 Arcane Hymns", a psycho-analytical concept album in the tradition of Pink Floyd's "The Wall", Nine Inch Nails's "The Downward Spiral" and Faith no More's "Angeldust", was released May 13, 2010. The album features many reoccurring lyrical themes, particularly the theme of being buried alive and presumed dead, then crawling your way out, and "moving forward". Metalunderground.com called the release "a surprising firebomb of an album", while Pitch Black Magazine called it "a 13-track emotional and industrial-infused metal masterpiece".

It's been confirmed that The Unravelling will be shooting a music video for "Move Forward Until You Are Dead" with acclaimed Calgary director Doug Cook, who last filmed Divinity's most recent video "Lay In The Bed You've Made". Doug has contributed some great concepts and we are excited to get started on the full moon November 21st. Live performance dates are currently being booked in Western Canada.
