SUNLESS: Invisible Oranges Premieres “The Ancient Ones” By Minnesota Death Metal Experimenters; Urraca Debut Nears Release


Sunless As Minneapolis-based technical/avant-garde death metal trio SUNLESS prepares for the release of their belittling Urraca debut full-length in late February, the album’s “The Ancient Ones” has been exclusively premiered at Invisible Oranges.
Sunless reinterprets influence from pioneers of extreme, dissonant metal, such as Gorguts, Ulcerate, and Deathspell Omega through an abstract lens that is all their own, boasting a prominent rhythm section, a scattered assortment of time signatures, interwoven and complex arrangements, and bellowing death growls. Tracked by Adam Tucker at Signaturetone Recording in Minneapolis (The Crinn, Ambassador Gun, Maeth), and mixed/mastered by Colin Marston at Menegroth, The Thousand Caves in Queens, New York, the band’s Urraca delivers a relentlessly engaging onslaught of complex and dissonant death metal, with nine tracks encompassing a dense forty-four minutes, and artwork by friend, lyricist, and former bandmate, Andrew Notsch (ex-Youwretch).

SUNLESS will support the release of Urraca with a two-week US tour alongside Minneapolis cohorts, fungal death-sludge act, Grogus. The tour begins with a hometown record release show the day of the album’s release, Friday, February 24th, and runs through Saturday, March 11th.
