An Athenian post-metal and alternative band based in Berlin, Germany. Unverkalt merges their raw and versatile vocals with elements of doom, post-metal, avant-garde and alternative scenes.
Rooted in the influences of European cinema, art movements, and human experiences, Unverkalt’s music embraces a duality of darkness and romanticism, skillfully fusing the ache of emotional turmoil with the light of catharsis and redemption. Established in 2017 by guitarist Themis Ioannou and vocalist Dimitra Kalavrezou in Athens, Greece. Guitarist George Stamkos joined the band during the recordings of their debut album »L’origine du monde«, which was issued in November 2020.

Shortly after the debut album’s release, Unverkalt entered the studio to record their second full-length studio album in Berlin, Germany. Bassist Spyros Olivotos joined the group in 2022, contributing to the finalization of the album. Titled »A Lump Of Death: A Chaos Of Dead Lovers«, the album was released via Argonauta Records in 2023, featuring a theme that is grueling, powerful, and intense in all of its aspects. The record received widespread acclaim, including a 9/10 review from Metal Hammer Greece. Their next chapter shows clearly that the band acquires its own identity and has a complete vision of their musical direction.
This album’s specific plot is influenced by the 70’s and the flowering of the cult community, and the acts of criminals and serial killers at that time. Most of the lyrics are influenced from that period of modern society.
»A Lump Of Death: A Chaos Of Dead Lovers« will leave an aftertaste of a vintage movie. Consisting of seven hymns, the album signifies the ultimate blend of post-metal, avant-garde, and alternative sound with a distinct cinematic character and an atmosphere inspired by the dark 1970s decade, all with a modern twist.
»A Lump Of Death: A Chaos Of Dead Lovers« plunges into the depths of human behavior, exploring its darker sides and acts.
