3 stars This is where Edge of Sanity´s Prog leanings started. Their previous album Nothing But Death Remains didn´t show any signs as to the direction the band would take on the following albums, but on Unorthodox the signs begin to show.

The style is still old school Swedish Death Metal and songs like Incipience to the Butchery and Beyond the Unknown shows this clearly. But quiter passages and keyboards have found their way into the Death Metal Mayhem on songs like the mini epic Enigma and the slow closer When All is Said. There is even a short cello piece in Enigma. Dan Swanö sings with his clean voice for the first time in Enigma too, and this song is without a doubt the albums highlight. But songs like In the Vains/Darker Than Black, Everlasting, Nocturnal and A Curfew for the Damned (Blind Belief) are also very powerful Death Metal tracks with the typical Swedish melodical approach.

This is a very strong Death Metal album and it could even have some slightly interessting moments for Prog Heads. Somewhere between 3 or 4 stars is logical, but since most of the songs don´t have much to do with Prog Archives I will give it 3.

UMUR | 3/5 |
