Unearth (formed 1998) is a metalcore band from Winthrop, Massachusetts. Their debut album, The Stings of Conscience, was a popular offering in the underground metalcore scene. Their music is mixture of metal and hardcore, categorised by complex, harmonized guitar riffs, harmony-oriented bass riffs, rapid kicks, non-throaty screaming vocals, and politically based lyrics. They are also well known for playing seven-stringed guitars, while the bass player plays a five-stringed bass.

Early Career: 1998-2003

Unearth was formed by Trevor Phipps, Buz McGrath, Ken Susi, Mike Rudberg, and Chris Rybicki at Winthrop, Massachusetts in 1998. On the small independent label, Endless Fight Records, they released their first EP called Above the Fall of Man on May, 1999. Years after the release, Unearth signed to Eulogy Recordings to release The Stings of Conscience in 2002 and Endless in 2003. During the process of Endless, Chris Rybicki left the group and was replaced by John Maggard.

After playing in venues like the New England Metal and Hardcore Festival and Ozzfest with Unearth, Mike Rudberg left the group a day after their performance at The SXSW in 2003 for the reason of playing naked during that night. Also Buz McGrath left for personal problems but came back shortly after. The rest of Unearth would then use Paulie Antignai of Sworn Enemy as temporary replacement drummer and Kia Eshghi of A Static Lullaby as temporary replacement guitarist.

With the return of Buz McGrath and new permanent replacement drummer, Mike Justian of The Red Chord, Unearth released the The Oncoming Storm under Metal Blade Records in June 29, 2004. Shortly after, they would begin touring with Killswitch Engage, Shadows Fall, and Lamb of God for MTV's Headbangers Ball US tour. They would also tour with Slipknot the next year. In 2005, Unearth performed in the first ever Sounds Of The Underground tour with numerous bands like Norma Jean, GWAR, and All That Remains.

In the Eyes of Fire: 2006-Present

In early 2006, they begun writing their next album. After the writing process, they recorded III: In the Eyes of Fire with Terry Date at Seattle. As they finish their latest album, they performed at Ozzfest for the second time with a performance including songs from the album even though it's not destined to release until August 8, 2006. During the release, they begun their headlined Sanctity of Brothers tour with Bleeding Through and Terror. After participating in Japan's Loud Park festival, Unearth and Slayer will tour with each other throught the US in early 2007. (Unearth-Wikipedia)
