The Second Ring of Power - CD&DVD edition coming in October

October 17th sees the reissue of cult Finnish doom act Unholy's second offering, the classic 'The Second Ring of Power'. This edition includes a bonus DVD featuring the band live in Finland, in 1994.

Unholy, from Finland, formed in 1988 & were among the first doom metal bands from the country. In the band’s earlier years, starting under the moniker of Holy Hell, their style began as more a black/death/doom metal mix but progressed to a style of atmospheric, experimental doom metal. Unholy recorded 4 albums throughout their career before disbanding in 2002 & leaving a legacy as a very influential & legendary act in the Finnish doom metal scene who are still highly respected today, alongside other classic Finnish acts such as Thergothon.

Pre-order HERE.

‘The Second Ring of Power’ was the band’s second studio album, & continued the boundary breaking approach to experimental doom metal which the band had established with debut album, ‘From the Shadows’, mixed with strong atmospherics & unusual structures. Unholy has remained a cult act over the years with a recent surge in interest, as the band announce a possible comeback in 2012. 

This edition of ‘The Second Ring of Power’ is a dream come true for fans, as the band themselves have provided footage of a rare live performance in Imatra Finland, from 1994, featuring classic Unholy tracks.
