The sole creation of Erica Dunham, material began to be written under the moniker of Unter Null in the year 1998. After years of classical piano training, as well as cello and guitar, the foray into electronic music began. Unter Null's sound could be described as equal parts melody and noise,, venom balanced with sentiment, and a blend of sounds influenced by a wide variety of genres spanning from industrial, classical, black metal, and IDM. Unter Null has come to represent a complete reassessment of the direction of the project, both in the writing and live performance aspects of Unter Null. Supported by a full live band, the aggression of the album material is now fully reflected by a live dynamic that looks to span genre boundaries, and overcome scene isolation by incorporating the engaging elements of punk rock energy, metal ferocity, and the intensity, and club playability of industrial, and EBM.
