“To wield, to balance something so heavy, and to do so with such skill as to make the heart shrink in its behemoth shadow…” – Decibel Magazine
Seattle, WA’s UN present their sophomore offering and Translation Loss Records debut of melodic death, doom, and thunderously crushing cosmic soundscapes in the form of Sentiment. UN continues to delve into the somber, brooding realms of tragedy and isolation. A 53-minute monolith of existential doom, deeply exploring the romance and poetry of fragile human existence. The album serves as an emotional follow up to their 2015 debut release, The Tomb of All Things (Blackbow Records).
Produced by Dave Otero at Flatline Audio (Khemmis, Primitive Man, Cattle Decapitation) and accompanied by stunning artwork courtesy of Cauê Piloto, Sentiment brings forth the most beautiful of explorations in emotion and metal.
“While so many of our contemporaries choose to focus purely on the grim aspects of mortality, Sentiment is meant to serve as a token of gratitude in spite of the struggles of daily life”, guitarist/vocalist Monte McCleery comments. “It is a deeply personal and intimate thing to share your art with the world, and we hope that everyone who holds this album or hears these songs feels like it was written specifically for them.”
Sentiment is available now, in its second vinyl pressing, via Translation Loss Records and is available on LP, compact disc, and digital.
