Unearth Songs Ranked

Unearth is an American metalcore band from Boston, Massachusetts. Formed in 1998, the group has released seven studio albums. Unearth was formed by Trevor Phipps, Buz McGrath, Ken Susi, Mike Rudberg, and Chris Rybicki in Lynn, Massachusetts in 1998. The band began as Point 04 (containing McGrath, Rudberg, and Rybicki), and Susi was recruited soon afterward. The band attempted to recruit Phipps while he recovered from appendicitis, but Phipps was reluctant to join. However, when Phipps showed up to a jam session for one of Susi’s sidebands, Unearth was practicing instead, and Phipps agreed to join after hearing the song “Shattered by the Sun.” The name “Unearth” was coined by drummer Mike Rudberg as he wanted the band to “Unearth” a new sound in the metal and hardcore world. On the small independent label, Endless Fight Records, they released their first EP called Above the Fall of Man in May 1999. Unearth then signed to Eulogy Recordings to release The Stings of Conscience in 2001 and the Endless EP in 2002. During the process of Endless, Chris Rybicki left the group and was first replaced by former Poison the Well bassist Andrew Abramowitz. After Abramowitz left, John Maggard came in. Here are all of Unearth’s songs ranked.

10. Zombie Autopilot (The Oncoming Storm, 2004)

“This song is the absolute epitome of what Unearth is all about. Amazing melodies, awesome riffs, and brutal breakdowns, and sweet guitar solos. I think it deserves the number one spot overall. Regardless it is certainly a must for all fans of metal.”

9. This Time Was Mine (III: In the Eyes of Fire, 2006)

“This album simply goes for the throat and throttles you into submission from the opening track until the instrumental closing number. It is apparent to me that this band really decided to step it up a notch in the aggression department, not that their previous release was really lacking in that regard.”

8. We Are Not Anonymous (The March, 2008)

“Unearth is in the studio creating their current masterpiece, but this release is timeless as well as the others before it. like several other metalcore bands, they mix brutality and melody at the same time. this album “The March” is a concept album about the good and evil in humanity. if you like metalcore, this belongs in your collection. it will tide you over until the next album comes out in the spring. I recommend this album to those that listen to metalcore and those that listen to a variety of metal bands.”

7. Endless (Endless, 2002)

“Unearth just never ceases the stomping of skulls. This album is amazing as well as Stings of Conscience. Swedish metal with brutal hardcore/metal, done with excellent musicianship. Somehow they took the leads, made them even better, took the vocals, and made them even more fierce, and somehow, i have no idea how, they took their breakdowns, and made them even heavier.”

6. Grave of Opportunity (The March, 2008)

“GRAVE OF OPPORTUNITY begins with a slow melodic introduction, then immediately kicks off to a really fast riff. The bridge consists of clean guitar backed up by a distorted guitar, and leads into a short solo which goes right back into the incredible main riff. An amazing song which will be even better live in the pits.”

5. Watch It Burn (Darkness in the Light, 2011)

“Watch It Burn” is a very thrashy and blood-pumping opener with harmonic guitar leads drowned out by fiery thrash picking, pounding rhythms, and machine gun drums”

4. Stings of Conscience (The Stings of Conscience, 2001)

“Unearth isn’t your typical hardcore band. Sure, “The Stings of Conscience” has the aggression and breakdowns that characterize hardcore, but these guys bring a level of complexity and musicianship not often seen in the genre.”

3. Bloodlust of the Human Condition (The Oncoming Storm, 2004)

“Bloodlust Of The Human Condition” is one of the most powerful songs on the album. It is very much against war and worldwide violence, almost seeming to blame ourselves for those two travesties. “

2. Giles (III: In the Eyes of Fire, 2006)

“To keep it short and simple, this is one of, if not THE best metal CD I’ve ever heard. And I’ve heard dozens. Break-neck guitar riffing, complex, technical drumming (that alternates between seemingly random, yet fitting snare rolls and rumbles, and rhythm based stomping) powerful, pounding breakdowns that blend seamlessly, and some better than average vocals and lyrics are all carried by thrashing, slashing, often uplifting and exhilarating guitar melodies that are damn near impossible to follow in a way that carries you through the song. “

1. My Will Be Done (The March, 2008)

“MY WILL BE DONE sets the mood for the entire album because it not only displays their amazingly catchy harmonies (think the riff in the intro to Zombie Autopilot), but it marks the returns of Unearth’s wicked guitar solos and their original sound which is something all of us Unearth fans have been waiting years for.”
