Unto Others, Blood Star

From the venue:It is truly heavy music’s sweetest spot to take the majesty and familiarity of its past and inject it with a fresh bout of creativity, a welcome jolt of musical bravery, and an X factor that makes you believe this band could make a difference. With nods to timeless gothic rock, traditional heavy metal, arena-ready hard rock, and all while never, ever pulling their punches, this is exactly what Portland, Oregon’s Unto Others (formerly Idle Hands) have been doing since their inception in 2017. The band is the brainchild of singer-songwriter Gabriel Franco (formerly of Spellcaster and Seventh Gate) and to truly understand Unto Others, one must step inside his shoes and walk his journey to this point. Having grown weary with the restrictive scene politics that come with playing in bands circumnavigating rock underground, Franco made the decision to take a stand, both with the world and himself, to be limitless in both his ambition and his creative endeavors.
