UNEXPECT
FABLES OF THE SLEEPLESS EMPIRE
ASCENDANCE

Exemplifying the term avant-garde, seven-piece Montreal metal troupe Unexpect have returned after a five-year hiatus with the 12-track FABLES OF THE SLEEPLESS EMPIRE. Intertwining modern melodic death metal fury with luxurious orchestral string arrangements, flurries of tech metal excellence, three distinct vocalists, and a jazzy undercurrent, this act’s superfluous style leaves no stone unturned while yielding a hybrid sound that transcends the works of even the most eclectic in the metal genre (“Mechanical Pheonix”). Off-kilter and experimental, Unexpect have developed a polarizing yet potent potpourri of progressive metal insanity that requires a predilection for complex and exploratory arrangements and an open mind to fully comprehend the madness this band has concocted.
