Clinic For Dolls
8/18/2011 - Review by: Greg Watson
Unsun is a female fronted Polish band that is very similar to Lacuna Coil and Sirenia. Also the band features former Vader guitarist Mauser. I have to say that when I found that out I almost didn't believe that it was him remembering his fierceness from his Vader days. But he definitely brings solid guitar work to the album.
There is definitely a Gothic feel to the album at times and keyboards throughout to add an ethereal feel to some songs. Vocalist Aya serenades and belts her way through songs with flair ala Cristina Scabbia. The riffs are heavy enough to bob your head to and the songs are structured quite well, with a nice touch of heavy and industrial to keep things interesting. Production is quite crisp and keeps the album together nicely.
Unsun can definitely hold their own with any of the female fronted acts out there today. Pick this one up if you're looking for some decent listening material for a rainy day.
