Unearth Gets ‘Amped’ By All Axess

This weeks featured ‘Amped artist’ is metal band Unearth. The film clip to their song ‘Watch It Burn’ can be found below.


Boosting five albums and a reputation as ‘the kings of the machine-gun breakdown,’ Unearth have emerged from the late 90s Massachusetts underground scene to become one of the planet’s hardest-hitting and most sought-after metal bands.
Unearth’s 2004 album, ‘The Oncoming Storm’ was nothing short of a masterpiece and remains the favorite album of many of the band’s fans to this day. While the album’s follow-ups, 2006s ‘III: In the Eyes Of Fire’ and 2008s ‘The March’ failed to reach the heights ‘The Oncoming Storm’ achieved, both albums further increased the bands devoted legion of fans, as well as their prominence as one of the hardest working bands in metal; after they embarked on multiple massive tours.
In 2011, Unearth unleashed their latest album ‘With Darkness In the Light’ and with it proved to fans that the band was able to release an even more compelling album than ‘The Oncoming Storm.’ Vocalist Trevor Phipps said that the album had taken Unearth to the next level. “It’s funny because when you do a new record you always think it’s your best one at the time, but up to this point I think ‘The Oncoming Storm’ was probably our most solid record – until now.”
‘With Darkness In the Light’ raises the bar when it comes to marrying precision brute force and exhilarating melody, and cements Unearth’s standing as one of the world’s top metal acts. Guitarist Buzz McGrath believes it is Unearth’s best work to date. “Our last two records are great records but I didn’t get that same feel. This one is special man; this one is our best yet.”
Unearth have been on the road in support of ‘With Darkness In the Light’ since its release, leaving a trail of mosh pit devastation in their wake. McGrath: “We’re still touring because we love it, and as long as there’s people out there who appreciate what we do we’ll keep on going. We just made the best record of our career and we want as many people to hear it as possible, so come on, let’s go.”
