Erica Dunham’s industrial project, Unter Null, is finally set to release its second album, Moving On. It will be released in 3 different versions through Alfa Matrix records on February 26, 2010. The album was produced and engineered by Claus Larsen (Leaether Strip) and displays just how much she has matured and broadened her artistic approach since her debut was released in 2005.
Moving On is available to pre-order in 3 different versions - a normal CD version, a deluxe carton box edition including the exclusive "Moved On" bonus album (featuring 9 exclusive songs plus 4 remixes from Acylum, Neikka RPM, Kant Kino and DYM) and a super fanbox edition will also be marketed in very limited quantities including a T-shirt, parts of Unter Null's keyboard that Erica crushed into pieces after composing this new album and the bonus "Mixing On" album with exclusive remixes by Siva Six, Larva, Wynardtage, Implant, Alien Vampires, Essence Of Mind, Dedman, HEX RX, Xyogen, Fraqtured:sound, Freakangel and Detritus.
Unter Null's sound could be described as equal parts melody and noise, venom balanced with sentiment, and a blend of sounds influenced by a wide variety of genres spanning from industrial, classical, black metal, and IDM.
Yea, I'm influenced by all varieties of music, and just because I might say "black metal influence" doesn't exactly mean that my music is in any way black metal ;) I'm sure you can comprehend that.
Not to mention that the most prominent black metal session musicians all have years of JAZZ practice and classical theory. And, well, I'm classically trained in more than a couple of instruments.
So I could also say "classical influence", and "jazz influence", and maybe even some middle eastern influence. I'm all over the map.
Also, that picture used of me is EXTREMELY outdated.
Yeah. You have to excuse some of the users on this site ;)
It's interesting that you say that, because I can hear some classical influence, but not really black metal (not as much as with a band such as Psyclon Nine, at any rate). As for the picture, Alfa Matrix doesn't have anything post-2006 that I've found on their site. Anyway, I'm glad to see that the fire didn't cause you to give up... looking forward to another Stray album too.
RE: new promo pictures, if you dig deeper, check out www.myspace.com/unternull under "promo pictures". and yes, alfa matrix should have the new images up soon. the blood imagery is extremely outdated and it's something i no longer wish to continue to represent my project.
Thanks for the point in the right direction and thanks to Balls for the update - those sites (Myspace, Facebook) are blocked at work and it sucks. There will definitely be a review as soon as Alfa Matrix releases the promo.
