Legendary Swedish Viking Death Metal outfit, UNLEASHED, have just finished recording the follow up to their critically acclaimed Odalheim album. The title of the album is still a secret but be prepared for another classic record!
The as-of-yet-untitled album was recorded by guitarist and producer Fredrik Folkare in his own Chrome Studios in Stockholm, Sweden. It is tentatively schedule to be released in spring 2015 via Nuclear Blast.
Frontman Johnny Hedlund states:
“Warriors!!! Unleashed are now done mastering and we now have the finished recording in our hands. Fredrik has once again done a tremendous job in the studio and I would say this is our best produced album to date. We are very much looking forward to the release date and to play some of the songs live.”
With their blend of melody and brutality, UNLEASHED are credited as the founders of the Viking Death Metal movement from their inception back in 1989. Twenty six years later and their riffs are still pure shrapnel and their choruses just as epic – melting uncompromising brutality with anthemic odes to Odin.
UNLEASHED’s latest record Odalheim was released in April 2012 via Nuclear Blast and can be ordered here: http://shop.nuclearblast.com/en/products/sound/cd/cd/unleashed-odalheim.html
