The Unguided Commences "Operation: E.A.E."

Swedish modern metal act The Unguided just issued the new release "Lust and Loathing" this past Friday (Feb. 26th) via Napalm Records. Today the band has teamed up with Metal Underground.com to present the second music video for the release - "Operation: E.A.E."

"Lust and Loathing," the third full length release, boasts melodic and goosebump-inducing powerplay. Once you get past the harsh melodic death metal exterior, epic clean vocals and catchy keyboard tones await! Dynamic and strong songwriting with that special Scandinavian „je ne sais quoi“, massive production, and delicate guitar solos turn "Lust And Loathing" into the best gem The Unguided`s discography has yet to offer!

Vocalist Richard Sjunnesson had this to say about the song and video: "'Operation: E.A.E.' was the natural choice when we decided to record a music video in a live environment. Blatantly one of the most energy surging songs on 'Lust and Loathing'! It's all about keeping your hope close at heart and just give everything you got in hours of great distress. The music video is brought to you by the very talented team; 11 Frames Productions (Betrayer of The Code, Inception & Eye of The Thylacine) and once again they shine and really flex their muscles! Everything is filmed during a Swedish hometown gig of the band, during December (2015), in the small west coast city of Falkenberg. Anyone that attended the show can surely agree; that the atmosphere and intensity of the evening is captured in this clip. Love to see you all at the upcoming 'Lust and Loathing in Europe' tour!!!"

The track listing for the album is:

1. Enraged (see music video here)
2. The Worst Day (Revisited) (song streaming here)
3. King Of Clubs
4. Heartseeker
5. Photobs Grip
6. Black Eyed Angel
7. Operation: E.A.E.
8. Boneyard
9. Hate (and Other Triumphs)
10. Mercy (Bonus Track)
11. Judgment (Bonus Track)
12. Betrayer Of The Code (Live)

Pit Stories: The Miscalculated Stage Dive

Each week we check in with metal bands from around the globe to get their favorite Pit Stories from metal shows.

Today Richard Sjunnesson (The Unguided, ex-Sonic Syndicate) shares this story of a miscalculated stage dive:

This is a story from our old band Sonic Syndicate but still pretty entertaining, and seeing we are 3 persons from that band in The Unguided what the hell!? Anyway, we had this gig in Gothenburg 2007 on a festival called Metaltown. And towards the end of our set the former harsh vocalist of Dead By April, Jimmie Strimell, came up on stage for no particular reason, we barely knew the guy back back then, but I suppose he was just drunk and wanted to fuck about. Anyway; he was roaming around the stage for a while and I remember us being a bit annoyed by the fact. But after a moment he comes up with the brilliant idea to stage dive.

In his drunk mind he supposedly made some miscalculations as from where the crowd was positioned and that solid iron barrier between the stage and the fans. He however took off and made a miraculous leap towards the people, or so he thought, in fact he hit that fucking barrier head on, and made a total fool of himself. All this was of course immortalized by our manager standing in the ditch filming. And everything stupid like that eventually ends up on YouTube right? So now it can be watched below around 03:00 for everyone amusement. A small step for man but a giant fail-leap for Jimmie!

Regarding The Ungudied we are just about to release our sophomore album “Fragile Immortality” and once that’s out we are going to support it by doing some touring here in Scandinavia and a bunch of festivals during the summer. We are also looking into doing some touring around Europe under 2014. Going to be a busy year!

The Unguided Releases New Music Video

The Unguided has released a new music video for "Inception," which can be viewed below courtesy of Metal Injection, and the band also comments:

"If you take a brief peek in the rear-view mirror of our carrier, this music video is the thirteenth professional production up to date. We’ve basically tried and done everything when it comes to music videos, so we asked ourselves; how the hell do we top all that, with this release!? Certainly this massive album deserves to be spoiled with an equally spectacular music video!

"The answer came to be fairly obvious. We simply had to shift gear up to 'ludicrous speed' and add 'extra everything' to the project, of course in our own unguided fashion. And with the right allies in; 11Frames Production, right band and the right song; we’ve made our carriers most impressive and brutal creation; up to date!"

"Just imagine the opportunity to have a show; in a machine infested city, were laser sights are following your every move, right in the middle of an epic battle between heavens cast outs, while a nuclear firestorm is moving closer. I can’t picture a better location to unleash the live energy of The Unguided, and that’s exactly what happens in this production! We had a lot of fun scripting and recording this, hope you’ll have as much fun, watching it. Only robots were harmed in the making of this music video."

The band's new album "Fragile Immortality" will see release via Napalm Records on February 3rd (Europe) and Febuary 11th (North America). More...

The Unguided Signs With Napalm

The Unguided has checked in with the following announcement about working on a new album and inking a deal with Napalm Records:

"There’s been a lot of silence around here the last couple of months. But we can now finally surface that; the Swedes in the band and the Austrian’s (at a certain well-established record label); are in league to shoulder the highly anticipated TBA successor album to 'Hell Frost!'

"After lengthy negotiation between the two parties, we are now; severely proud to say that The Unguided and Napalm Records hails under the same banner!

"We've been eying out Napalm Records for quite some time and undeniably considered it as a very desirable home for our cogent operation. Fresh in mind; Napalm Records have been a force to reckon with, supplying us all with ace metal acts through the decades, rooting themselves as far down as to our very childhood days. Therefore it feels beyond certain that this alliance will be for the greater good. And we are very confident that together, the future holds; many beautiful things in its mystic and ever-changing puzzle."

Further details on the coming album will be announced as they are made available.
