Undusted is a promising melodic/atmospheric/technical deathcore/metalcore band (Deathcore Groove Warmachine they call it!) I have discovered through Metalhead Community Submissions about a year ago with one of their powerful songs; Method to Madness, and featured them here on Metalhead Community. This time, they are back with us with another amazing song called; The Seventh Race, which was released as a single not long ago in 2020. The band is officially making releases since 2017. They have started their careers in 2017 with an EP called; “Method to Madness”, continued with another single; “Lashed into Circles” in 2019, and released another single; “The Seventh Race” in 2020. Some of you might remember Undusted from our reviews, and others might remember from Metalhead Community’s Top Metal Songs Playlist on Spotify. Although they are making releases for only the last 3 years, they are working together as a band since 2005. Now, please listen to the song while I dive into details about the band and their song.
Undusted is one of my strongest candidates for the future of metal. It might be a little bit early to talk big about a band who has only 7 released songs in their careers so far, and I am aware of that. As you might also know, there are tons of metalcore/deathcore bands out there and %99 are doing the same thing with the same approach over and over again. Undusted in this way is separating themselves from everyone else with their experience. Period. They are at a different level to me. I am already convinced about how advanced musicians these Latvian gentlemen actually are. And this song, The Seventh Race, is simply another badass job by Undusted, which I had the chance to discover about 2 months ago. One of the greatest things about Undusted is they usually meet your expectations every time you listen to something new from them, which is quite admirable. It is not that often I personally like more than a few songs by the same band, and Undusted is one of those very few names.
The Seventh Race is a brutal song with an irresistible atmosphere, monstrous riffage, and addictive dynamics all along the way. I always knew that Meshuggah has influenced them a lot in the past, and this song made it even more obvious. Well, like I always say, this might be an issue for some of you, doesn’t matter that much to me as long as the song has the right amount of harmony in everything, just like in this example. They have done their homework very well once again and offered this monstrous sounding awesomeness to the world. We all should be grateful.
