Description

Unholy, from Finland, formed in 1988 & were among the first doom metal bands from the country. In the band's earlier years, starting under the moniker of Holy Hell, their style began as more a black/death/doom metal mix but progressed to a style of atmospheric, experimental doom metal. Unholy recorded 4 albums throughout their career before disbanding in 2002 & leaving a legacy as a very influential & legendary act in the Finnish doom metal scene who are still highly respected today, alongside other classic Finnish acts such as Thergothon. 'Rapture' was the band's 3rd album, & was originally released in 1998. Over the years it has become a strong fan favourite, & often considered a highlight of the band?s career, as well as a cult release of Scandinavian doom. The tracks on 'Rapture' continued in the well-established & trademarked style of dark doom metal exploring sombre & often trance-like moods, combining eerie keyboard atmospherics with a thick wall of distorted guitar to great effect. This edition of 'Rapture' features 2 bonus live tracks, including a live rendition of 'Petrified Spirits'.
