Akin to a black stallion in all of its grandeur, Unto Others (ex-Idle Hands) stand tall in their portrayal of glorious heavy metal. Soaring vocal hooks, electrifying solos, catchy choruses, infectious energy: they have it all. Come September 24th, Unto Others will continue their rise towards arena level prominence with the arrival of their Roadrunner Records-debut, Strength. Adam Burke's organic artistry conveys the Unto Others bravado in a way that speaks of the power lying within the Strength confines. Lead single Downtown displays Gabriel Franco's status as one of metal's strongest vocalists of today, a feat not commonly achieved amidst the flooded ranks of the genre. The stars have aligned and Unto Others are here to make their strength as a newly renamed unit of limitless potential. In the words of Darkthrone's Fenriz, "Big sunglasses, cool band."

Frontman Gabriel Franco comments:

“I wish I could say it came to me like a bolt of lightning, but the record was a process. A challenging process, to write, record and mix. It was 10 months from beginning to end, and the most time I’ve ever spent on an album. You can decide if that's good or bad. Arthur did a great job giving the record an organic heavy sound and it was a privilege to work with him. What we have at the end is something I am extremely proud of, for better or worse, and a constant reminder to myself that we don't do things because they are easy, we do them because they are hard.”
