French post-metal outfit Unburnt weave together brooding, titanic riffs and shimmering prog sensibilities across their most recent EP, Æthereal.

Today we at Svbterranean bring you the exclusive premiere of the song’s moody and kaleidoscopic music video.

Galloping post-metal à la Russian Circles gives way to groove-heavy stoner metal, which then gives way to psychedelic prog rock fervor, and so on. Check out the track after the break and stream the band’s past efforts here. Continue Reading
