Biography of Band
|The black metal horde Unearthly started as a trio in the final days of the year 1998, with Lord Thoth (V/G), M. Mictian (B) and L. Simões (D). Some months later, Simões left the band, wich caused Unearthly to start looking for a new drummer. The time passed and Unearthly found Inferiis, who played drums for other band, but even still agreed to join Unearthly for drumming. At that time Kaften (G) and Hysrucs Midgard (K) also joined the band. |
With this line-up, the band started playing in some gigs and then, in the year 2000, their entered in studio to record their first CD-demo "Blessed Are The Destroyers Of False Hope". This excellent CD-demo received great reviews in the most important fanzines, magazines, radio shows, etc., from around the world. Also, it was very well apreciated by the fans. With this recording, Unearthly opened to itself the gates that led to the title of brazilian black metal elite. Unearthly played in several gigs and festivals gaining more and more recognition from the audience.
Then, a year after the release of their first CD-demo (wich was already sold out), the band decided to enter once again in studio, to release what would be its second CD-demo, this time with Leghor Supay on the drums, who was playing with Unearthly for almost a year at that time, since Inferiis left Unearthly short after the release of the first CD-demo.
The CD-demo "Living Under The Sign Of Blasphemy" was released and the brazilian underground black metal scene shaked!
The reviews were awesome. Some magazines printed things like: "why is Unearthly still an unsigned band?"; "This is the best black metal band in the country!", and things like that. In 2001, Uneartlhy even was voted as "possible best new band for 2002" by the editor in chief of Rock Brigade Magazine (biggest Metal magazine in Latin America).
A few record labels started to show more interest, and Unearthly decided to sign with Encore Records to release their debut full-length CD "Infernum - Prelude To A New Reign".
Before starting the recordings for that CD, Kaften, who was playing lead guitar in Unearthly since the first CD-demo, was asked to leave the band, the reasons were mainly personal problems and ideology differences between him and the rest of the band members.
So the "Infernum - Prelude To A New Reign" CD was recorded with only Lord Thoth on the guitars. The CD was officially released in july/2002, and was destined to be enormously successful. After the release of "Infernum - Prelude To A New Reign", Unearthly found a new guitar player, his name is Thyrr, and is now a full-time member of the band.
"Infernum - Prelude To a New Reign" was very well accepted by the black metal scene, the reviews were amazing, so the north american record label Crash Music (former Pavement/USA) started to show interest and decided to release "Infernum - Prelude To A New Reign" in north american version. The north american version of the album was released by Crash Music in january/2003.
After this, Unearthly was nominated for the "Masters Of The Beast" internet award, given every year by the "And Heavy Metal For All" website. The categories in which Unearthly was nominated were: Best New Band, Best Cd ("Infernum - Prelude To A New Reign") and Best Song ("Days Of Storm For Christian Souls").
Also, the band appeared in the top 10 list of the best CDs of 2002, made by the editor in chief of the Rock Brigade magazine.
Then, Unearthly also appeared in the list of top 10 CDs of one of the writers of Valhalla magazine. And after that, Unearthly appeared as one of the top 10 most voted bands, in the votings of fans to decide the best metal acts in the year 2002, the votings appeared in various metal magazines (including Rock Brigade and Roadie Crew, the two biggest metal magazines in Brazil). The categories in which Unearthly was voted, among others were: Best Brazilian Band, Brightest Hope, Best Drummer, Best Keyboards player, and more (more details about it in the NEWS section)...
After a few concerts, because of some personal problems, Hysrucs Midgard was destined to leave the band in a friendly way. The band then recruited Hostis Daemonium to take over the keyboards machinery for the band
