Mark Lindhout Beautiful, heavy compositions with great synthwork. I hear a lot of musical improvement, and I'm really pleased to hear more M. Wolf on the vocals.

If the music wasn’t already awesome enough; this release is thematically freedom-minded and a fierce criticism on society.

I’m hearing a strong anti-religious undercurrent — that might be my personal interpretation, though.

It’s a great continuation of the band’s previous work.

5 out of 5, would rock again. Favorite track: Hunter.

Calen Henry The same atmospheric, cinematic post-sludge as Towering, but more focused, immediate, and visceral.

I know we all fight battles everyday we have And what will last are only the dreams we sent in space Are you offering repulsion on your way to dust Why does your fear bring tears to all these fearful eyes? Have you ever seen Saturn’s rings when dark surrounds your eyes? You know your grace can last and attain the light I don’t know the end and how we do affect our lives But I fight your non-human acts with all I have and am Can we carve our names in stone? Side by side Can we reach our hands again? Side by side I lost the feeling to see Are you gone? I lost the feeling to see And I ask Are you gone? With evil gaze off to blazing star At loss tremble with shame Why has your bloom turned to wither Escape from hate - courage go far Attaining the light - pierce the shadow behind your eyes Attaining the light - reach out with fortitude And I ask Are you gone? I can’t touch The cold stone

Convoy 04:32
Made of old skin And bleached yellow bone Concrete and glass Broken from one mold Piled up miles high Holding its ground Licking its teeth Taking its toll Where is the blood Where is the blood It’ll be the foundation the mortar on which it stands It’ll be built on muscle and tooth And then you will know Where is the blood Where is the blood And when the signs turn clear Then will it flow? When they decide Where will it go? And when the blood seeps in Then will it grow? When they align Will the path be shown? Here is the blood Here is the blood And when the signs turn clear Then will it flow? When they decide Where will it go? And when the blood seeps in Then will it grow? When they align Will the path be shown? Blood! Blood!

Deeper In 05:39
Two steps behind Where the past is still alive Beautiful and forgiven We are standing tall Not knowing what we’re given Why do you always stay… Why do you always stay… Everything gets real Sooner or later Doesn’t matter how you feel Why do you always stay… Miles away Miles away What’s on your mind When you’re lost in time What’s on your mind As we fall into oblivion What’s on your mind As we fall

Dwarf the sacred charge Antlers interlocked Eyes set on the prize The curse of the dime Hear the trumpets of damnation Smell the scent of demise One step closer to abysm Into the vortex we climb If it doesn’t die on the outside It will turn bad within A blade to cut through the darkness The haze clouding your mind Through roots, mud and dirt We dig down to find the hatch Whence we crawled from Where we found the steel The curse of the dime Imperceptible diversion Plows into swords once again Our knuckles recollect the pain As we forge the curse of the dime Dwarf the sacred charge Antlers interlocked Eyes set on the prize The curse of the dime The curse of the dime

Hunter 05:51
They still got the scars, but the pain is gone No life without fall, that’s what they’re told anyway As if we wouldn’t know how to run, as if we wouldn’t know where to hide This wave has swept over us, can’t back off from it now So who are you, telling us what to do, telling us how to be and telling us what to believe Distracts my own self respect, turns my stomach too Ghost-like sun emerges from you Take responsibility How is it done to show integrity? You cheat and you lie, you steal and you hurt Grow a thick skin hunter You can push us around and you can do what you want Release the hunter Mistaken back then, mistaken right now Down in the water, left to be drowned You cheat and you lie, you steal and you hurt Grow a thick skin hunter You can push us around and you can do what you want Release the hunter I want to be lead outside Hunt of the hunted, a new rise

Pale 06:00
Pale, a dash of red Read me right through my hide Crawling up through the spine Stricken, wound up, torn Unburden my mind From my hands – take it all Through your eyes i shall see Through your deed i shall be Once we part We’ll be free Through hail and storm I found serenity Come out from under, Walk with me Pale, a dash of red Pale, a dash of red Pale, a dash of red Pale A vault to shelter me Calmness and tranquility Listen to the canon We will heal Pale… Pale… Pale… Pale!

Altar 07:03
Suffering arises from your fear You trapped your tongue within yourself You walk on thornes set the bridges in flames Hail the echoes of your own pains You deny yourself Obstruct the light You deny yourself Shattering face You deny yourself Dividing the path Live for me What we all get Is only a life No chastise no pain No guilt for none Fallen words – fallen dreams Honor the unseen to pray for me You will glorify my truth… Fallen words – fallen dreams I’ll give you all if you follow me You will glorify my truth… Rising the stakes your deep eager appears Seed a drought to constrict the waves Fraught with blindness amongst the light To behold the darkness of your own mind You deny yourself Obstruct the light You deny yourself Shattering face You deny yourself Dividing the path Die for me What we all get Is only a life No chastise no pain No guilt for none Your guard – the fear Sneaks upon your alleys of hope To cover the terrible emptiness you carry To hail the echoes of yestereves pain No gods no guilt

From here is is where we look back Here is where we want to stop ‘Cause we wish to begin New again From here is is where we look back Here is where we want to stop Delusion craved with promise Again

about

Unhold Bern, Switzerland

Unhold thrives on dynamics, the alternation of emotions and the variety in their artistic choices of instrumentation, putting a wealth of thought, energy and work into making emotionally complex creations, which only start to reveal themselves after several listens. Hope, anger and agony generate a space and a sonic architecture which bears witness to a conscious existence and vigorous force. ... more
