UNSUN — the Polish female-fronted gothic metal band led by ex-VADER guitarist Maurycy "Mauser" Stefanowicz — has issued the following update:
"It's been two years since we recorded our first album and one year since we published it.
"We are so glad to hear that you like what we are creating.
"Last year was artistically both pleasant and difficult for us. Introducing quite new music we didn't know how people will react. However, we quickly realized that we've chosen the right way.
"Your support gives us reason to continue what we started.
"Two years after [the release of] 'The End Of Life', we're entering the recording studio to create something completely extraordinary and fantastic. Being full of enthusiasm and creativity, we are starting to record our new album on 19th February."
UNSUN's "Whispers" video can be viewed below. The song was the first single off the band's debut album, "The End Of Life", which was released on September 22, 2008 via Century Media Records.
Originally formed under the moniker UNSEEN, the dynamic four-piece decided that something incorporating day and night, light and darkness would suit them best. Thus UNSUN was born, a label perfectly encompassing the melancholic, dark and yet catchy nature of their music as well as the stark contrast between female singer Aya's highly melodic vocals and the driving, powerful riffs.
Consolidated by the sheer passion to play intense music, Mauser and Aya knew upon their first rehearsals that it was their destiny to create music together. From the very beginning, UNSUN was not supposed to be just another side-project for Mauser, but his personal way of exploring new music. Thus, he and Aya started looking for other exceptional musicians to make UNSUN a full-time band. Very soon Vaaver from INDUKTI and Heinrich, who also plays bass in VESANIA, teamed up with Mauser and Aya to form the band they are today. It didn't take long for UNSUN to catch the attention of various labels throughout Europe and in 2007 they finally signed a deal with Mystic Production in their native Poland. The ink hadn't fully dried yet when Mauser and Aya already started writing the first songs for what should become their debut album, "The End Of Life", which was recorded in Poland in Studio-X in the beginning of 2008.
