Healing (Ünloco album)

Healing is the debut album by the nu metal band Ünloco. The album was released on March 20, 2001 via Maverick Records. Healing embraced an outlandish, alternative metal sound, which meshed appropriately with their aggressive, angst-ridden lyrics. Ünloco's first single, "Face Down", reflected Maverick's desire to highlight the band's reflective and acoustic edge. The songs "Panic" and "Nothing" were also featured in the video game Test Drive Off-Road Wide Open.

ReceptionEdit

Commercially, Healing failed to gather mainstream attention, and its release flew under the radar during the nu metal phase of the early 2000s period. AllMusic's Michael Gallucci gave the album a highly negative one and a-half star review, noting "There's no explanation for why anyone should listen to these neo-metal knuckleheads when there are already plenty of other rap-metal macho men doing the same thing."[2]
