Portland, Oregon’s Unto Others have spent their seasons in the abyss and arise from the other side with streams of harsh light breaking through their darkened gothic and classic metal motifs. 

The band emerged in 2017, turning heads with the ‘Don’t Waste Your Time’ EP (under their previous moniker Idle Hands), followed by the beloved 2019 full length Mana and 2021’s heavy hitting Strength LP.

Last month, Unto Others made their long-awaited return with a new single and music video for “Butterfly.” Now, they reappear with “Raigeki“— which premiered yesterday on Sirius XM Liquid Metal – and arrives alongside an electrifying lyric video directed by Zev Deans.

Of the song, the band’s Gabriel Franco comments: “War and death and suicide and planes and explosions, I’ve been told we are a goth / metal band, those topics tick all the boxes I think. ‘Raigeki’ is about The Kamikaze, the Floating Chrysanthemum, the last gasp of a conflict. It’s all very metal.”
