Review: Sunless Rise - Unrevealed

Hailing from St. Petersburg, Russia, Sunless Rise released their first full-length “Unrevealed” in November last year. No reason though for not giving it a spin!

We are listening to a concept album, revolving around the extinction of humankind and the end of the world, which is brilliantly reflected in the songwriting and nicely followed through in all 10 songs of the record. Sound-wise, the first song, “Nothing to save”, kicks off with a big synth intro that will leave you astonished, but right afterwards we’re thrown into a nice melodic death piece. Loads of keyboards and progressive metal-influences can be found throughout the record, which intertwine quite nicely with the ever-present synth. Some riffs and song arrangements are surely a nod towards Children of Bodom and Wintersun, but are refreshingly blended into Sunless Rise’s own sound rather than being a cope/paste.

In conclusion, “Unrevealed” marks a great debut album for Sunless Rise, with great songwriting and a unique sound. This record is not to be missed, can fully recommend it! 9/10.
