Biography

Montreal, Quebec, Canada (1996 – present)

uneXpect is an avant-garde metal band from Montreal, Quebec, Canada, formed in 1996. They feature a unique amalgamation of different metal subgenres like progressive, death, black and melodic metal, and of other styles of music including classical, dark cabaret, opera, jazz, funk, electro, ambient, noise, and circus music.
With a crew composed of 7 different beings, the atmosphere sometimes takes the form of symphonic proportion by its sound diversity and arrangements. Their vocal performance range from one extreme to the other as they alternate between glorious choirs; inhuman screams of deep, high, mid-growl and delirious intensity; theatrical narrations and clean/sober sections strewn with bewitching feminine singing pleasures.

Current members:
Syriak (ex-Magister Dixit) – vocals, guitar (1996- )
Artagoth – vocals, guitar (1996- )
Chaoth – bass guitar (2001- )

    @Sanity_Theorist, in one of the comments on YouTube Chaoth said that even though Unexpect were going "on an indefinite hiatus" (read "to split up") he was going to start a new project with Unexpect members. So there is hope to hear some fresh crazy stuff from them under a different name:) Though, of course, their breakup is a bit sad news...

    This band is so good that I have to limit my exposure to them so that most music doesn't sound bland by comparison...would be a tragedy for them to be split up forever.

    How the fuck do I even describe this band? They sound like a supergroup with members of Diablo Swing Orchestra, Unhuman and Carach Angren performing drunken together. I don't even know.

    I've just found this band. And really, they got me into avant-garde :)

    I know how to describe this now...it's the tongue in cheek humor of Devin Townsend mixed with the awesomeness of Leprous and Ne Obliviscaris thrown in a blender, with amphetamines. THoroughly enjoyable as hell. Also, their bassist is god damn amazing. YOu can tell he knows how to use all 9 strings!
