ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Paul Mendoza - vocals
Mikey Merino - guitar
Eric Wong - bass
Brian Palkowski - drums
Thom Tucker - keyboards

Oftentimes in rock music, a band can hit a single moment of brilliance, and be expected to repeat that formula throughout the rest of it's career. Yet, as a creative unit, musical growth is an integral part of a band's evolution; though it runs the risk of alienating fans and following, some of the better bands realize the greatest reward comes maintaining the band's soul, putting the music first, while taking full responsibility for whatever the outcome may be. With their new album "Glow", Unjust is a classic example of this.

Hailing from the San Francisco East Bay , Unjust first entered the scene in 1999 with the release of their debut effort, "Thin Line Emotions". The album shared the Bay Area metal sound forged by the likes of Metallica, Machine Head, Skinlab and Faith No More. The album was heavy and brooding; it was released on Dutch label Mascot Records, along with positive reviews across Europe including Kerrang! and Terrorizer. Unjust were also invited to play at the annual Dynamo Open Air Festival in Holland.

Their sophomore release followed in 2001, entitled "Makeshift Grey". With "Makeshift", Unjust started to come into their own and created a dark and gloomy metal atmosphere with songs like "Come Feel Me" and "Nylon". Not only did the band continue to solidify their standing in Europe through Mascot; the album also became an underground hit with Bay Area rock fans and garnered the band interest from major labels in the U.S., as well as and landing them a spot at The California Music Awards, and airplay on San Francisco's Live 105. It was also during this time that the band began to embark in a new direction, partially brought on with induction of new guitarist/songwriter Mike Merino; in addition to their trademark riffage, their music began to hint at a moodiness and depth that would eventually hit it's stride with their next latest, "Glow".

Considering their East Bay metal roots, "Glow" is a very bold step into the musical future. True, the heavy influences are still there; but the emphasis on melody and songwriting takes the group to an entirely different level...and one begins to wonder whether this is a band that has merely had the guts to mature, or whether it is an entirely new band altogether. Nevertheless, not only have they managed to maintain the support of their early fans, but in fact attracted scores of new ones; which already makes "Glow" a smashing success from that perspective alone. And there is nowhere to go from here but up.

This album was awesome. They were sort of metallic,which is good, but they have cool riffs, and amazing vocals. Buy it before they sign with Lava Records - LOL.

Just fucking buy it!!!!!
This CD is the fucking shit. I thought that comparing this band to Dredg and Deftones was a pretty bold statement but I took the chance and ordered it cause CDbaby said it was bad ass, and it is. They sound more like Deftones than dredg, and when I say Deftones I mean more like new deftones kinda like Minerva type stuff. So it's gets pretty heavy but It still has a real mellow feel to it. I just can't beleive that a band this good with such a solid album could go unnoticed by all my friends. If you've never herd of this band and your a big fan Dredg and Deftones then this is for sure a must have. No exagerations here.

Tim LaBrecque

This is a great cd, every song is unbelievable.
I love this cd, it is one of the best cds that has come out in a while. Every song is good. I have listened to it over a million times, it's great.

Jarren

Incredible
I can't believe these guys don't have a label.. This is probably the best cd in my collection so far.

Brendan Hockey

Love it, cd of the year
Great cd, vocals are unreal. Cool riffs, in particular the verse in knuckles. Highlights are throwin pennies and room 5, but overall the cd is very cool. so far the best cd i have bought this year, perfect for anyone who likes riffy guitars, and pauls singing is \m/

Tamara Turner, CD Baby

Highly recommeded for hard, dark rock and alt. metal connoisseurs.
For those who covet every Deftones, Dredg, Faith No More, and Glassjaw release, here's your new habit. Unjust is a soaring sweeping band gaining recognition by the night for their huge sound and expansive style that not only rips up the Metal genre but puts a notable stamp on the Emo one as well, Although they are quite gifted at crashing and pummeling the senses,they also have a knack for knowing when to bring it down and sculpt a little drama; you might call them the masters of build. Highly recommeded for hard, dark rock and alt. metal connoisseurs.

Dan Cudahy (CHINASKI)

SUPER GOOD
This album is super good. Musically, the songs are tight and well written. It fills the gaps between bay area metal, emo-alternative, and progressive rock. Think of it like this: Take a little bit of Muse, throw in some Faith No More, a pinch of Bjork, and add something you never heard before. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

We all might read about the impact of this album in 5 years...
Yes, it really is that good. I am in a band (outset) from Eugene, OR. We had the privilege of playing a show with Unjust here in Eugene, right around the same time "Glow" hit. We've been playing in Portland and Eugene for over 6 years, and I must say I've never heard a Calli group that moved me as much as Unjust did. When we played with them, it was a monday night, (or something like that)and the p.o.s. bar we were at was empty, except for a few conservative old drunks... I did a doubletake from the pool tabel after the first 10 seconds of their set. WoW guys...groundbreaking album...Don't be surprised when you see the Unjust pad on cribs. Buy this shit now. It's the only legitimate album I've paid for in the last 5 years.

Rock Freak

A powerfull mix of melody and metal that will hook anyone.
I have spent six hours skipping through bands and this one stood out from all the rest. The powerfull mix of melody and metal makes the band accesable to almost anyone. To me nothing is more important then vocals and the raw emotion that Paul Mendoza puts into his singing blew me away. The songwriting of this band is impressive and the songs flow together as if they were one. If you like your rock with a sprinkling of melody and a fist full of metal then pick this CD up you will not be dissapointed.

Cycopath

Excellent album. For fans of Unjust this will not dissappoint.
Unjust's song writing just keeps getting better and better. Glow seems to show a more mature band. It's lost some of the raw heaviness of the last album, Makeshift Grey. But what it's lost in crunch and distortion, it makes up in harmony and structure. I always felt Unjust excelled at the more melodic songs, and Glow reaffirms that belief. Don't get me wrong there's still lots of crushing guitar riffs, just less angry vocals.
For anyone that enjoyed Makeshift Grey or even Thin Line Emotions, don't hesitate on picking this album up. You will not be disappointed.
