Massachusetts metalcore band Unearth's upcoming album, Darkness In The Light, is probably the quartet's most progressive record to date. It's chock full of the brutally heavy guitar chords and pummeling drums of the band's previous works, but incorporates more guitar melodies and vocal harmonies than ever before.
Recorded by producer (and Killswitch Engage guitarist) Adam Dutkiewicz and mixed by Mark Lewis (Whitechapel, The Black Dahlia Murder), Darkness In The Light also features Justin Foley (Killswitch Engage) sitting in on drums.
The album isn't scheduled for official release on Metal Blade Records until July 5, but you can hear the entire album now, courtesy of a stream on the Alternative Press website. Check it out here. The stream will be available until the album's release date.
