UN is a doom metal band from Seattle, WA. UN received critical praise from across the heavy metal underground for their groundbreaking sophomore opus, “Sentiment” (released September 28, 2018 via Translation Loss Records). Praised by Decibel Magazine, Metal Injection, Revolver Magazine, Stereogum, and more, Sentiment earned widespread recognition and became 2018’s most sought after doom record.
Unafraid to reveal somber themes of tragedy, sorrow, and isolation, UN fueled each note of Sentiment with purpose, resulting in overwhelming waves of thunderously crushing doom and emotive sonic soundscapes. Blending soaring post-rock, shoe-gaze, and funeral doom, UN have carefully crafted monoliths that deeply explore the romance and poetry of fragile human existence making Sentiment one of the year’s most gripping and emotive doom records.
Originally formed in 2012, the quartet consisting of Monte McCleery on guitar and vocals, Clayton Wolf on bass, David Wright on guitar, and Alex Bytnar (joined in 2017) on drums, UN began to burst out of the underground with their debut full-length The Tomb of All Things (released December 4, 2015 on Black Bow Records). Touring significantly throughout the US with the likes of Hissing, Fister, Usnea, Badr Vogu, Withered, Oryx, Body Void, and more, UN became sought-after for their powerful and heart-wrenching performances. UN have performed at 71Grind II, Midnight Communion IV, Northwest Terror Fest, Austin Terror Fest, and more. Grabbing attention from Translation Loss Records, UN released their landmark album Sentiment on September 28, 2018. UN will release the third pressing of Sentiment in late 2019. Following Sentiment, UN released a split LP (February 15, 2018, Translation Loss Records) with UK’s Coltsblood, again to critical acclaim.
Undeniably magnificent, UN are reaching far beyond the norms of their genre to create a unique and unforgettable sound. Weaving perfectly balanced, slow-burning mastery with exceptional musicality, UN have evolved to shape the future of not only doom, but heavy metal itself.
An early incarnation of the Vancouver, BC based group started as a hardcore/punk band in 2015.
Afterwards, as the band’s influence of Celtic Frost, Darkthrone and Disfear started showing up more in their music, they chose to rebrand themselves as Wormwitch.
