Music Monday 7/26

Well, I went and promised Ola a Polish band and since I know of, like, one… guess it has to be UnSun. But first, Music Monday is a meme created by Drew the Tattooed Book Geek on his blog. I’m a bit on and off posting it, but I love my music—and my tastes are a bit eclectic—so it makes for an interesting time, I hope.

UnSun was a Polish gothic metal band that existed from 2006-2016. I really liked them in my college years, when I burned through a lot of gothic and symphonic metal—that mix of classic vocals mixed with hardcore metal sounds. Sadly, they broke up in 2016 after only two released albums. See their vocalist, Anna Stefanowicz suffers from a rare illness that affects her nervous system and since about 2014 had been affecting her throat. For two years she gave it a go, even though singing caused her pain. But in 2016 the illness had worsened to the point where she was apparently in pain all the time. Though I’m not certain, I believe she is doing much better now, though probably isn’t cured by any means.
