There are not so very many bands playing avant prog and zeuhl, but most often it is very fascinating music and not at least intense music! The band Unit Wail from Paris is indeed an interesting band.
Unit Wail is propelled by a heavy rocking band, the music explores dark Crimsonian horizons, illuminated by Franck William Fromy’s stellar guitar. Unit Wail proposes us here some kind of dark Zeuhl post-rock, exploring little frequented side-paths. The clever musician Fromy is the founding member of the zeuhl band Shub-Niggurath. In November the band released their fourth album Egarés. The track Les Portes Du Sanctuaire (The Sanctuary Gates).
On Egarés Frank Fromyonly have two guitar solos, and Vincent Sicot-Vantalon actually handle the guitar and as usual also the keyboards. He is also the main composer in the band. Jean-Pierre Soarez from Art Zoyd plays trumpet. The album title Egarés means strayed. Unit Wail’s line-up hasn’t changed since their previous album Beyond Space Edges. The studio production is real excellent. This is as before an all-instrumental album and probably their best offering so far. A band that gets better with every album!
