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!!!!
