Hailing from Long Island/Brooklyn New York, Unearthly Trance formed in 2000. Founding members Ryan (Rion) Lipynsky and Jay Newman started with the idea of a 'Metaphysical Funeral Pyre'. After hearing UT's original demo tape "SonicBurialHymns", Southern Lord Recordings Greg Anderson quickly released the debut 7" ep "Lord Humanless Awakens" for the 7" of Doom series. Shortly after in 2001, UT parted ways with original drummer Pete Mc Coil and found the most powerful drummer since Dale Crover picked up a pair of sticks. Darren 'Vril' Verni revitalized the band with his signature 'heavier than war' drumming.

To coincide with their full United States tour with Electric Wizard in 2002, Unearthly Trance released a limited tour CDR entitled "HADIT". Following that release, another 7" EP ("frostwalkwithme") was via Parasitic Records. Lipynsky, Newman and Verni unleashed its first proper album in the UK on Lee Dorrian's Rise Above Records: "Season of Seance, Science of Silence". "SoSSoS" saw a North American release on The Music Cartel and limited vinyl version on Parasitic Records. "Season of Seance, Science of Silence" was released in the Fall of 2003. "SoSSoS" was recorded with 'Drone Magus' Stephen O'Malley (sunn0)))), who assisted in the subsonic mixing. "In the Red" was unleashed in Europe November 2004 through Rise Above Records. Having played with such heavy yet diverse bands as: Morbid Angel, Pelican, Sunn0)), Warhorse, Om, Grief, Floor, Comets On Fire, and various Power Electronics/ Noise acts to name just a few. Unearthly Trance released their third full-length and Relapse Records debut, "The Trident" on April 4th, 2006. To record The Trident UT once again reunited with Sanford Parker and recorded the main tracks at Steve Albini's Electrical Audio Studios.

Unearthly Trance performed a handful of live shows in support of The Trident throughout 2006 and 2007, including a month-long European tour just prior to beginning work on a new album. In the later half of 2007, the band called up Parker once again to record their next full-length release, Electrocution. Electrocution was recorded with Parker at his Volume Recording Studios in Chicago, IL.
