Prosthetic Records is proud to announce the addition of Syracuse N.Y.â€™s UNHOLY to the Los Angeles-based labelâ€™s ranks. Currently writing material for the bandâ€™s second full-length record, the forthcoming effort will be the follow-up to the bandâ€™s debut, â€˜Blood Of The Medusa,â€™ which saw a June 2007 release through Lambgoat Records.
â€œWe’re really excited to share our future with Prosthetic Records, I think we’ll fit well with their roster of already great bands,â€ UNHOLY guitarist Jonathan Dennison says. â€œWe’ve been hard at work writing new material for our upcoming record with the addition of Billy Price on vocals, slated for spring of 2009. To say the least, this record will be very innovative and hard hitting…for extreme music fans everywhere!â€
Featuring members of Path of Resistance, Another Victim, Godbelow, and Santa Sangre, UNHOLY most recently added Price to its ranks and the as-yet untitled effort will be the vocalistâ€™s recording debut with the band. Two pre-production tracks are available on the bandâ€™s official MySpace page, while UNHOLY will enter Syracuse’s Moresound Studios (Ed Gein) in November to record the forthcoming effort.
In addition to three local shows in the bandâ€™s hometown, UNHOLY will be playing Heavy Hitter Inc.â€™s fifth annual CMJ showcase Oct. 24, alongside Catalepsy, See You Next Tuesday, Arsonists Get All The Girls, and headliners I Wrestled A Bear Once at New York Cityâ€™s Bowery Poetry Club.

â€œThunderous riffs that remind of the early â€™90s Roadrunner roster kick clean singing to the curb; vintage Agnostic Front/Cro-Mags breakdowns shave off side-swept haircuts; there are even Integrity references and a couple killer leads thrown in for good measure. This is the sound of scene veteransâ€”including ex-members of Godbelowâ€”whoâ€™ve somehow kept the fire stoked all these years.â€ â€“ Decibel
