This Friday, March 12th, local heavy rock band The Unbeheld will unveil a debut full-length recording, In the Arms of Mother Chaos (self-released), with a CD-release party at the Hi-Tone Cafe. Joining them will be emerging locals the Dirty Streets and Little Rock's Iron Tongue.
The Unbeheld is a relatively new group comprised of ex-members of several prominent local metal acts, including Epoch of Unlight, Serapis, and Grandma, but, thankfully, tends to shy away from current trends in heavy/metal music, embracing a more eclectic and adventurous approach to making eardrums bleed. Combining elements of Southern rock, blues, and psychedelia along with black metal, the Unbeheld's brand of heavy music is musically approachable enough for non-metalheads, but still rocks hard enough to deliver the goods for those faithful to the genre.
In the Arms of Mother Chaos, produced by Ardent's Alan Burcham (albeit, not at Ardent), is currently available for pre-order via www.memphishatesyou.com, and should be in local stores and other online retailers after Friday's release show.
