Biography

Having recently locked a deal with their home state-based Forcefield Records for the release of their debut full-length, False Light, Virginia’s UNSACRED has just unloaded the first auditory rapture from the album via underground music/arts outlet, Cvlt Nation, with the crushing track, “Plague.”

Recorded by Ricky Olson and mixed by Bryan Walthall and Ricky Olson at Rusty’s and mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege Engineering, UNSACRED’s False Light delivers a punishing slab of seven tracks of bludgeoning black metal infused with spine-shattering low-end death metal infiltrations and driving punk-inspired beats. Merging classic elements with its contemporary delivery, it’s more than a safe bet to state that False Light will incite the inner heathen in devotees of the works of artists including Craft, Horna, Arkhon Infaustus, The Secret and Mutilation Rites. Cvlt Nation’s exclusive stream of the album’s third track, “Plague,” is joined by an appropriately grim write-up of the album’s carnage, issuing in part, “When Unsacred drops the tempo down a notch, they hammer the riffs home like a train slowing down to plow a car parked on the tracks. When they go fast, they sound like they do performance-enhancing drugs. You won’t find me philosophizing like a street preacher on this review. When you hit the play button on UNSACRED’s False Light, it’s moshpit time! This album doesn’t stop and go without dynamics, though. They write carefully controlled songs that set up the best moments - the mid-tempo grooves that leave you headbangin’ like a lunatic before knockin’ your balls out of the park with the blast-sections.”
