UNSEELIE were founded at the end of 2010 in Paris, with a strong reference to the gothic metal aesthetics. Profound and intense, full of emotion, the band’s music combines mysticism with modernity, darkness with a dreamlike atmosphere, powerful riffs with haunting melodies and electro beats. It is also a world made of myths and symbols, those languages we will never finish deciphering. It is an invitation to immerse oneself in the dark beauty of the unseelie courts, these ominous fairies who might still be hiding in the back streets of our megalopolis.
After releasing its first EP Unholy light in 2012, appearing on numerous compilations, shooting their first music videos and being broadcast on several radios, the band gave a series of concerts in Paris (Le Klub, La Cantine, Headbang Contest, Le Zèbre de Belleville, Le Reservoir…) in 2012-2013. In August 2013, UNSEELIE started to compose an ambitious concept album entitled URBAN FANTASY, for which a crowdfunding campaign was launched on Indiegogo. The success of this fundraising was far beyond all expectations: the album and its extensions (photobook, short story…) are officially released on December 1st 2014 and receive very positive feedback within the Metal scene and beyond.
