HardTimes.ca conducted an interview with the Syracuse, New York-based hardcore band UNHOLY when they played Montreal, Quebec, Canada on May 29, 2009. Check it out below. Also available is performance footage from the Montreal show."New Life Behind Closed Eyes", the new album from UNHOLY, was released on May 12 via Prosthetic Records. The follow-up to 2007's "Blood of the Medusa" (Lambgoat Records) was recorded at Syracuse's Moresound Studios (ED GEIN) and sees new vocalist Billy Price paint a scathing portrait of mankind's failures and shortcomings. The album's concept, written by Jonathan Dennison, revolves around an end-time narrative of the final days of humanity delivered by its own hand. Richly detailed artwork furthers the album's unsettling mood, but ultimately, it's the music within — a very heavy take on the northeastern metal sound, with strong riffs, intense vocals and sharp soloing — that makes UNHOLY impossible to ignore. "We've poured a lot of blood into this new record and hope this will be a soundscape to your nightmares," states Dennison. "The aggression and energy of UNHOLY has truly been captured in 'New Life Behind Closed Eyes'. This record is for people who are looking for something more in heavy music. Extreme music fans old and new prepare to get your faces shredded off!"
