Unshine Unleash New Video

Unshine unleash their new video "Visionary's Last Breath" streaming below. The band comments:
"On this track, we tell the story of a healer preparing for the journey to ASTRALA and this requires purification of soul and body. It is fascinating to think that a modern human could also apply these same methods in most of the everyday activities. If it has worked for thousands of years, why did we forget these ways? This quite heavy song is played in low tuning in order to create the right atmosphere."

Unshine Issues Album Update

Unshine is currently working on a new album to follow previous full-length release "Dark Half Rising." The band comments:

"Hi, we wish you a great new year 2016! Many things have gone and even more have came during 2015.

"We are really happy to have your support, it's a privilege to continue making music. During the making of our 4th album, we have lost family members, but even a new member was born!

"We have lost musical heroes, just recently Lemmy Kilmister and Edgar Froese...what's important in their music is that they always walked their own path, exploring the unknown and without compromising the sound they heard in their heads. That is a goal that we want to achieve, too.

"Check out our blog, there is an update on the recordings of the 4th album. A spoiler warning - there's even a small sample of a new song. Lots of love and champagne."
