One of the most notorious black metal bands hailing from Brazil, Unearthly was established by the end of 1998, with M. Mictian on bass and Lord Thoth on guitars and vocals.
Their first demo, “Blessed are the Destroyers of False Hope”, was released in june 2000, and the second one, “Living Under the Sign of Blasphemy” was launched a little over one year afterwards in august 2001. Both works had good acceptance within the scene and received good reviews, which guaranteed them many concerts in their native country. But it was only in 2002 that “Infernum – Prelude to a New Reign”, their debut album, was released in Brazil via Encore Records and in the US and Canada via Crash Music Records.
After performing live in Brazil’s most important cities and festivals, UNEARTHLY started recording their second album. Released by the end of 2003, “Black Metal Commando” – produced by Fabiano Penna (ex-Rebaelliun/The Ordher) – showed more death metal influences, although still maintaining a black metal identity.
By the middle of 2004, Lord Thoth, co-founder and singer, left the band and was replaced by Agares (ex-Mysteriis, who performed in all the concerts of the “War Massacre” Tour in that same year). Agares left the band in the middle of 2005 and his place was taken over by Eregion, who remains as the band’s frontman until the present day.
In 2007, UNEARTHLY toured throughout many countries in South America and in 2008, commemorating their 10th anniversary, Free Mind Records, the band’s former label, re-released their first albums and also a live one (Revelations of Holy Lies…Live!) and a compilation (Black Biography – Unmerciful Personalized Bestiality). Also, they recorded, mixed and mastered “Age of Chaos”, released in june 2009.
“Age of Chaos” also received good critique worldwide, especially in Brazil, where the most important metal magazine in the country (Roadie Crew) gave the album 10/10.
In 2011, after two years working on new material, Unearthly finally entered Hertz Studio (Bialystok, Poland) to record their upcoming album, “Flagellum Dei”, with Wojtek and Slawek Wieslawski. The album contains 11 songs and will be released in Brazil by Shinigami Records.
