Rockshots Records is thrilled to announce the upcoming release of Karn of Burnings, the fifth studio album from the extraordinary druid metal band Unshine.

Set to make its global debut on March 22, 2024, Unshine’s forthcoming album assures an enthralling voyage delving into the realms of pre-modern human existence and posthuman metaphors, characterized by their signature blend of melodic Nordic folk elements and the ethereal vocals of Susanna Vesilahti.

With eight tracks, each representing a living entity from a different era, the album spans 45 minutes of melodic storytelling. Unshine believes that fans will be pleasantly surprised by the record’s offerings, promising a unique and unpredictable listening experience.

The first single, “Hjul,” and its accompanying video are now available! Guitarist Harri Hautala comments on the song:

“‘Hjul’ is not just a song but an entire album in a metaphorical sense. A ritualistic composition in both its musical and lyrical tautology, ‘Hjul’ mirrors the cyclical nature of seasons and mythical themes. Like the changing seasons in the cycle of the year, the musical and mythical themes and names recur again and again, creating a mesmerizing experience for the listener.”
