Unexpect are an eclectic band rooted in the creative soils of Montreal, Canada. They describe themselves as "a metal laboratory mixing elements of black, death, core, symphonic, progressive and melodic metal; classical, operatic, medieval, goth, electro, ambient, psychotic, noise and circus music with an occasional jazzy touch."

The septet includes a violin, keyboards/sampling, a singing contemporary dancer, a 9 stringed bass, 2 guitarists/singers and drums. The vocal performance of the two singers range "from an extreme to the other as they alternate between glorious choirs, inhuman screams of deep, high, mid-growl and delirious intensity, theatrical narrations and clean/sober sections strewn with a female singer who's angelic voice could melt the will of the most vile politician."

Unexpect are legendary for their instrumental virtuosity and their complex, winded song structures. Though on a very high technical level they manage it to create catchy songs that go into brains as well as into guts. If avant-garde metal had to crown the king of freaks uneXpect definitely would be a major favourite.
