“UNSHINE has always been a band without the traditional role models. The most important thing in a song is the melody. Sounds and rhythms create the overall atmosphere, but the melody wakes up the whole ancient story in it to life”, tells Harri, UNSHINE guitarist behind the majority of the songs. “Secondly, it all starts from the nature and it all will end to the nature. This cuts through all aspects of our music. It echoes from those landscapes the modern world has almost totally abandoned and forgotten. The songs try to re-unite the old bonds between the dolmen gods and the digitized mankind. Nature is not our enemy, it’s our physical, but especially our spiritual home. That’s why we call our music druid metal.”
“Astrala” is set to be released on January 19, 2018 in Europe and February 9, 2018 in North America via Rockshots Records.
