Unholy is a Finnish avant-garde doom-metal band. Formed in 1988, they were one of the first doom metal groups in their home country.

Unholy originally started as a black metal/doom metal hybrid under the name Holy Hell. After recording its first demo, "Kill Jesus", they changed their name to Unholy. The band achieved underground popularity with its next demo and the 1991 EP Trip to Depressive Autumn, and signed with Lethal Records, an Austrian record label that released the band's first album, From the Shadows, in 1993. Unholy then signed with Avantgarde Music for the next album, The Second Ring of Power, but disbanded soon after its release in 1994. However, they re-formed only two years later.

Unholy released their last two albums, Rapture and Gracefallen, also through Avantgarde Music. The band announced they were splitting up on March 25, 2002.

In 2008 Unholy started co-operation with Ahdistuksen Aihio label to release all demos as vinyl, which should be out in 2010. At same time, Peaceville Records bought Unholy album release rights from Avantgarde Music and started to negotiate for re-issuing full length albums.
