And our Band of the Month for May 2011 is… One Without!
Thanks to their enthusiastic fans, the Swedish gothic metal band took an early lead in our first Band of the Month Poll and never looked back. So, One Without is Unleash the Furies’ first Band of the Month!
To promote One Without for the month of May, and to promote future Bands of the Month here at Unleash the Furies, we have launched a Band of the Month logo widget on the right-hand sidebar of our WordPress site.
