Unearth debuts new song

Today, hosts the exclusive worldwide premiere of "Watch It Burn," the anthemesque opening track off Unearth's forthcoming Darkness In The Light full-length. Blisteringly heavy both musically and thematically, vocalist Trevor Phipps comments: "'Watch It Burn' is the lead track from Darkness In The Light because we felt it captured the aggression and heaviness of the album while also staying true to our core sound from our earlier records. This is one of the only tunes without a guitar solo, but the harmonies are there to mix around one of the heaviest choruses we've ever written. The song is angry, fast and in-your-face while also allowing for a melodic bridge late in the song much like some of our older material. Lyrically, it is an anti-extremist song. It attacks both the left and right of the political spectrum while also calling into question extremist religious groups and their influence on our culture. All these political and religious extremists seem to manage to do is splinter society and turn people against each other that otherwise likely wouldn't be at odds. Basically we can put aside some meager differences and work to better ourselves or we can keep heading down this destructive path and eventually 'Watch It Burn.'" Darkness In The Light is Unearth's fifth full-length. Scheduled for release in North America on July 5 via Metal Blade Records, the 11-track long player was recorded at Zing Studios in Westfield, Massachusetts with producer/Killswitch Engage guitarist Adam Dutkiewicz and mixed at Audiohammer Studios in Sanford, Florida by Mark Lewis (The Black Dahlia Murder, Whitechapel, Trivium, et al). Sitting in on drums during the recording was Justin Foley of Killswitch Engage/Blood Has Been Shed. Several discounted pre-order deals for Darkness In The Light are available.

It's too bad for Unearth that this style is completely irrelevant. If this song had come out on Stings of Conscience it probably would have gone down as one of the favorites. Now in 2011, no one, myself included, will give any fcks.

I dig it. Always have had a soft spot for Unearth. The other two songs I heard off this album are good too. This may be the first complimentary thing I have ever posted on Lambgoat.

hatahs 6/7/2011 8:37:50 AM

damn..what's up with the generic breakdowns.

LoydChristmas 6/7/2011 10:16:02 AM

like alot of people, i've completely run out of fcks to give FOR MOST BANDS. but i keep a spare fck in the glove box for when unearth puts out somethin new. just cause.

LoydChristmas 6/7/2011 10:16:47 AM

and love the breakdown at the end with the weedily weedily's. very 2002. *APPROVED*

"This may be the first complimentary thing I have ever posted on Lambgoat." That's because your probably an ignorant ass. Anywho, this is shocking that Unearth has not tried to all.

s_o_s 6/8/2011 2:01:29 PM

...and not a single fck was given that day.

bastardyouth 6/15/2011 4:33:20 PM

wow. that randomly useless, disjointed singing part really blew my mind...and my balls.
