” [UW/D] …oscillates between Failure, Cave In and Slint, somewhere between rock noise 90s and post-rock “.
– New Noise
“This is an album that’s worth circling back on even as we’re in the midst of one of the most hectic and exciting periods for rock and metal music, as there are plenty of strong hooks and the combination of noisy, heavy riffing and somber atmosphere have some genuine staying power. France has a lot of quality groups in the noise/alt rock spectrum and these guys are in the same league this early on.”
– Metal Trenches 9/10 !!!
“Produced by Serge Morattel ( Knut or Ventura , to give you a “little ”Idea of the guy’s abilities), this one mixes 90’s momentum, metal dynamics, post-hardcore inclusions and post-rock touches, for a completely personal rendering. Tumultuous.
“The quintet, which is, like the combo Sofy Major , originating from the Auvergne volcanoes, shares with it noise and post-hardcore influences, but adds to this explosive cocktail suspicions of a tense post-rock. ”
– Slow Show
Formed in 2014, Untitled With Drums are a five-piece rock band from Clermont Ferrand, France. With a wide array of influences ala Failure, Slint, Shipping News, True Widow and Cave In, UW/D puts a fresh spin on alternative rock by incorporating the raw noise of the 90s with a modern progressive post-rock vibe. On their debut LP “Hollow”, the band have refined the sound they first developed on their EP “S/T W/D” (2017) by improving upon their strengths (songwriting/melody) while at the same time, expanding their sonic soundscape. Well regarded for his work with acts such as Knut, Ventura, Impure Wilhelmina, and Year of No Light, ‘Hollow’ was recorded by Serge Morattel at Rec Studio (Geneva, Switzerland) who played a large part in crafting the heavy lush atmosphere achieved on this LP.
