UNSHINE “Astrala”

(Rockshots Records)

Battle Helm Rating

Back in 2013 I both reviewed and interviewed this band. Then they kinda fell off my grid. Until now, 5 years later. The music is being described as gothic metal but that is not the whole truth if you ask me. There is more to the sound than just that simple description. If I had a hard time pinning them as Finns back in 2013 it is a whole different ball game now. There is a very Finnish atmosphere to this new album. If you are familiar with the land of thousand lakes and the Kalevala you will get what I mean. There is an air of mystery to this that I like. It is not your run of the mill gothic metal album. And that sets this apart. Anders Ekdahl
