Unexpect  


The highly eclectic Canadian band Unexpect debuted in 1999 with a self-financed effort entitled Utopia, itself a unique and hard-to-describe album but almost conventional compared to their following works. Essentially a black/gothic metal hybrid, the album featured complex riffing, a host of vocal styles, and a general flair for the dramatic. It wold be five years before the band, with a modified lineup, managed to record again, putting out a stopgap EP (We, Invaders), followed by In A Flesh Aquarium, released in the summer of 2006. By this time the band had truly gone off the rails, an over-the-top cavalcade of experimental metallic weirdness, containing songs so twisted and yet not without a central purpose. This is a baffling band, and most assuredly a difficult one to grasp, but the efforts are well rewarded.
