Tales from Bandcamp: Fables of the Sleepless Empire by Unexpect

Listening to Canada’s Unexpect is akin to sampling random potions in a mad alchemists laboratory.  You never know what you’re going to get, but you can be sure it’s going to send you for quite a loop.  The insane amount of styles Unexpect blend into their music is staggering (extreme metal, classical music, and jazz being at the forefront), and by way of some wicked black magic they are able to spin cohesive and fluent songs out of pure chaos.  Fables of the Sleepless Empire is their latest release and in my opinion is their best album to date.  While still being a glorious mish-mash of sound they ‘simplified’ their songs making a listen much less dense but still rewarding to those willing to dig into the music.  If you’re feeling a bit looney today and need some music to compliment that mood, look no further than Fables of the Sleepless Empire.  Enjoy!!  Peace Love and Metal!!!!

  1. One of the bands I start listening and after some minutes I am still not sure if will like it or be annoyed by it. But then I was hit by one unexpected (perfectly suitable Band name) turn then by another, grinned about a new style or instrument incorporated and still be surprised how catchy the music is!

    Thanks you for introducing this!

  2. Unexpect’s music is unexpected. It is unexpected because I didn’t expect them to be so good. The riffs are brutally sonorous and the beats are sensually provocative. Brilliant stuff.
