REISSUE OF THE CLASSIC DEBUT ALBUM FROM THIS CULT FINNISH DOOM METAL ACT – RELEASED FOR THE FIRST TIME ON VINYL
Unholy, from Finland, formed in 1988 and were among the first doom metal bands from the country. In the band’s earlier years, starting under the moniker of Holy Hell, their style began as more a black/death/doom metal mix but progressed to a style of atmospheric, experimental doom metal.
Unholy recorded 4 albums throughout their career before disbanding in 2002 and leaving a legacy as a very influential and legendary act in the Finnish doom metal scene who are still highly respected today. ‘From the Shadows’ was the band’s debut full-length album and was originally released back in 1993. The album was known for its dark textured death/doom metal mixed with some unusual & often avantgarde arrangements. Unholy’s willingness to experiment with sounds and moods helped create a strong and uniquely twisted atmosphere on ‘From the Shadows’; slow pounding doom metal epics aided by the presence of creeping synths.
Unholy is often recognised as one of the forefathers of the funeral doom sub-genre. This is the first vinyl pressing of ‘From the Shadows’, presented on double vinyl.
