UNHOLY (FINLAND)


The history of UNHOLY started in 1988, by Jarkko Toivonen and Pasi Äijö under the shape of a band called HOLY HELL. The band released a debut tape titled "Kill Jesus", but soon after decided to change name into the definitive UNHOLY. A second demotape has been recorded and released under name "Procession of black doom" then in 1990. The band started to get a precise and original image music wise with the following and successful tape "Demo 11.90", which showed already a band with an incredibly original and personal sound, and a lot of weird ideas. That was a year of death metal "boom", and UNHOLY was too strange and weird to be completely understood by fans of main stream brutal metal music. A fourth and last demo "Trip to Depressive Autumn" was then recorded in 1991, and got a good response. It was even taken under license and distribution by Lethal Racords in Europe, and Wild Rags in USA. The sales of this tape, as for the previous one, was high. Soon after that UNHOLY signed a long-term deal with the same Lethal Records, and the album "From the Shadows" was released in early 1993.
