Unseen Faith is a Christian Danish metalcore/deathcore band with a lot of djent influences. After their last release, the “Yokebreaker” EP in 2015, they are back with their sophomore debut album “Waver”. If this debut album is just as heavy as their EP, then we are in for a treat…

Right from the beginning with the first track ‘Lost World’ the album blasts through my headphones with real fury and even some middle eastern melodies. Blastbeats and screams are present and alternated with more djent-like parts.

‘Friend Of The Devil’ has a beginning that is menacing and sets a tone that makes you thirsty for more and expectant when the breakdown will hit. This album is packed with intricate compositions. Music like this has a tendency to have a overload of breakdowns and just some parts to glue them together. This is not the case with this album from Unseen Faith, breakdowns are only present where they serve the song. And yes, every song has it’s breakdowns. Some tracks also have clean vocals but with a raw edge, for example in the song ‘Dystopia’. And the sound of the bassguitar at the beginning of the fourth track ‘The Sceptic’ will silence all the people who are sceptic about the part of the bassplayer. (Did you notice what I did there?) And yes, there is the first pig squeal, albeit in a subtle way. Subtle and deathcore….?!?? Continue reading »

The Aarhus-based death metal / metalcore band Unseen Faith will release their debut full-length “Waver” in late August, through the independent music company Prime Collective. ‘Dystopia’ is released earlier last month (May 19), this is the first single from the upcoming album. The music video for ‘Dystopia’ can be seen below.

Unseen Faith had a smaller breakthrough in the Danish metal scene with their latest release “Yokebreaker” – an effective 6-track EP that got a good amount of attention from Danish/Dutch reviewers.

Unseen Faith delivers dark and brutal deathcore in an atmospheric universe, and they’re now ready with their debut full-length “Waver” – a power demonstration for deathcore enthusiasts worldwide. The compositions on this full length move from neck breaking breakdowns to exalted musical breathing halts, where everything is allowed to stand completely still for a moment, before the earth, once again, shakes beneath our feet.
