An eclectic band rooted in the creative soils of Montreal, Canada. unexpecT is a metal laboratory mixing elements of black/death/symphonic/melodic metal; progressive, classical, electro, folk, jazz,  operatic, mathcore, ambient,  noise, circus musicand anything else crossing their minds. The collective includes a violin, keyboards/sampling, a singing contemporary dancer, a 9 stringed bass, 2 guitarists/singers and a drum. 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.


The ideas traveling in their lyrics are related to the imagination and the inherent creative power of all human beings, subjective tales, trancelike sensorial exploration, undercover denunciation of social aspects and subconscious realities. Think Cirque du Soleil goes black metal amidst an acid-trip version of The Dark Crystal.

Orange Vigilantes


Deep under the darkened cities

Beneath the overcrowded metropolis all over the living sphere

In labyrinths of olden tunnels carved by forgotten forces

A sneaky revolution has taken form

Insidious and unexpected

Plugged into their mechanized training sockets

The Pumpkins are ready to march on mankind


Architects of a unique and healthy Masterplan

To squash and seed once more

In league to restore a long lost balance

Blueprints are set for a new pulse

And Orange shall be the color of salvation


Heroic Icons of the vegetable supremacy

A mistreated garden, their ultimate purgatory


They will row

…row without arms but with fervor towards distant clouds of fire

Floating in steam powered boats made of stone, shells and ivy

Grimacing faces at the bow of the vagrant entities

Looming over saturated airwaves fields

to behold hordes of barbarians sinking in hourglasses of concrete

The Pumpkins are ready to march on mankind


An elitist carnage for the satisfaction of a renewed greenhouse

But only the heads shall burn!

Hands and legs shall be spared to dance madly afterwards

Freed from an unfair alliance by grinning ambassadors

Earth’s own orange vigilantes

The Pumpkins are ready to march on mankind


When shall rise the Pumpkins and their organic cohorts

The reign of men as we know it will reach its conclusion

…and in a parody of ancient ways, halls of stained glass shall commemorate the past

A festival of altered realities and manipulated perceptions

Orchestrated by vain, secretive, faceless schemers 

…and in a parody of ancient ways, halls of stained glass shall commemorate the past

History repeats itself as usual
