Unto Others, the band formerly known as Idle Hands (a name they had to drop due to Idle Hands being trademarked in 2014), are a goth/heavy metal band from Portland, Oregon.

When frontman Gabriel Franco established the band in 2017 he had to look up The Cure and Depeche Mode when people told him his band sounded like them. The trio in Unto Others is actually the line-up of the band Spellcaster minus guitarist Bryce Adams Vanhoosen but Unto Others are no heavy/speed metal band. Their 2019 debut ‘Mana’ combines goth rock, traditional heavy metal and 80s new wave influences - The Mission, anyone? - into a singular and infectious amalgam. Gabriel Franco’s gothic-style vocals are a perfect fit for the emotional and melodic guitar work and he cites Spanish rock band Héroes del Silencio as his biggest influence. ‘Strength’ (2021) was originally conceived as a double album but it didn’t work out. In early 2023 the remaining tracks were released as an EP: ‘Strength II… Deep Cuts’ A band with a highly individual sound that will appeal to fans of goth rock, new wave, dark wave and melancholic metal.
