Boundary-pushing German progressive metal quartet Unprocessed have returned with an intense new single, ‘Thrash’, along with the announcement of their third studio album, “…and everything in between”, due out on December 1st.
The new record is the follow-up to the band’s 2022 critically acclaimed sophomore effort, “Gold”. The Band shared the following comment about the new single: “’Thrash’ is the ultimate composite of everything Unprocessed has ever created, ranging from the style of our tracks on ‘Covenant’ to ‘Gold’, while adding brand new never explored elements to our style. This new direction could be described as ‘Futuristic Thrash Metal’ and will hopefully create a moment for modern guitar playing and the innovation of new playing styles. Lyrically, ‘Thrash’ deals with the odd effects of a fever dream and its twist on reality for the person experiencing it.”
Firmly established as an innovative force in in the progressive music world, and lauded for their unique approach that transcends genre barriers, ‘Thrash’ is one of the most extreme tracks Unprocessed have created. It’s beautifully melodic, intensely brutal, technically jaw-dropping and packed with hooks – it’s truly mesmerizing and unlike anything else.
The video was directed by Leo Feimer and produced by the band’s own Leon Pfeifer.
On “…and everything in between”, the band are “taking all influences and combining them into an ultimate evolution of everything Unprocessed has ever been, while still adding a new flavor and style to the mix. Epic riffs with intricate licks and mind-bending rhythms, brutal breakdowns, epic guitar solos and big and catchy choruses.
“The album can quite literally be described as everything in between the extremes of life. Dealing with anger, sorrow, nostalgia, love and fear the album reflects on the different shades of a personality that everyone is made out of (e.g. there is evil in everyone).”
The album is available for pre-order HERE.
