Unearth are making their fifth GMM appearance this year. Rooted in the metalcore scene, they evolved into an uncompromising metal band. The intensity and musicianship on their second outing ‘The Oncoming Storm’ (2004) made for an excellent metalcore album but ‘Watchers of Rule (2014) was a bit of a gamechanger that had them broadening their horizons without altogether abandoning their bread-and-butter formula. The pounding riffs, classic twin guitar work, raw vocals and boundless energy took Unearth’s music to the next level. Their last studio work to date nevertheless reprised the sound of their early days to make more impact in a live setting and they sure as hell succeeded. ‘Extinction(s)’ (2018) is a collection of mosh-worthy tracks that will grab you by the throat. Get ready for a career-spanning set by one of the leading lights of the metalcore scene. They rose to prominence during the first wave of metalcore and a quarter century later their music has effortlessly stood the test of time. #GMM23
