Originally from Athens, Greece and recently relocated to Berlin, Germany, Unverkalt is five-piece post-metal collective that merges their raw and versatile vocals with elements of doom, post-metal, avant-garde genres.
Drawing influences from the European cinema, art movements, and human experiences, Unverkalt‘s music embraces a duality of darkness and romanticism, skillfully fusing the ache of emotional turmoil with the light of catharsis and redemption. Established in 2017 by guitarist Themis Ioannou and vocalist Dimitra Kalavrezou in Athens, Greece, they were later joined by guitarist George Stamkos and started the recordings of their debut album L’origine du Monde, which was released in November 2020.
Shortly after the debut album’s release, Unverkalt entered the studio to record their second full-length studio album in Berlin, Germany. Bassist Spyros Olivotos joined the group in 2022, contributing to the final touches of the new album.
Titled A Lump of Death: A Chaos of Dead Lovers, this new effort will be released on October 20th via Argonauta Records and revolves around a theme that is grueling, powerful, and intense in all of its aspects.
This album’s specific plot is influenced by the ’70s and the flowering of the cult community, and the acts of criminals and serial killers at that time. Most of the lyrics are influenced from that period of modern society.
The upcoming record will leave an aftertaste of a vintage movie. Consisting of seven hymns A Lump of Death: A Chaos of Dead Lovers signifies the ultimate blend of post-metal, avant-garde, and alternative sound with a distinct cinematic character and an atmosphere inspired by the dark 1970s decade.
