CLINIC FOR DOLLS
Unsun is a Polish female fronted gothic metal troupe featuring Mauser, formerly of native death metal heroes Vader on guitar, and his wife Ava on vocals. The tandem’s sophomore 10-track release CLINIC FOR DOLLS provides a multitude of the dark and heavy elements necessary to stand out in the crowded symphonic/Goth metal set. Ava’s emotive voice isn’t the strongest, but it does a formidable job on ballads like “The Last Tear” and plays well off the prevalent deeper than normal rhythmic thump that propels cuts like “Time. Unsun lays down a smattering of melodramatic melodies with a good cross section of influences ranging from throbbing industrial to piano-led symphonic running through their repertoire for fans of both Epica and Lacuna Coil to get excited about.
