Unearthly Trance - July 13, 2009
Uneathly Trance

"Thankfully, when Unearthly Trance come crashing through a howling wall of feedback into their sludgy doom metal riffing, we are back in the land of physically pulverising heaviosity. With a technical deftness that could easily be lost beneath the dark distorted extremes of their sound, they shift seamlessly from their sludge beginnings to heavy-as-hell crust punk scorchers and then back all the way to full-on epic doom, showered with slow slow riffs and funereally paced stick-shattering drum crashes. This expert combination of dynamics, progressive experimentation and sheer brutal heaviness leaves the crowd stumbling from the Notecave's sweaty depths with suitably ringing ears and clawing fists." [an April 2009 review]
Unearthly Trance headlined a night of otherwise mechanized heaviness provided by Chi-City's Harpoon and Casket Architects at Lit Lounge on July 13th as part of the weekly Precious Metal party. The show was one of a pair for Harpoon, who also hit up The Charleston the following night.

Unearthly Trance, who recently played the BV-BBG showcase at the Northside Festival, is scheduled to play another BV-BBG event... Show No Mercy at Public Assembly on August 2nd with Keelhaul, Minsk, STATS, and Defeatist.

Harpoon, who we originally profiled here, is touring off of Double Gnarly / Triple Suicide which was released earlier this year.

More pics, and a video of Harpoon, from the show are below....
