Unleashed Reveals "Dawn Of The Nine" Artwork

Unleashed today unveils the artwork for twelfth studio album "Dawn Of The Nine," which was crafted by Pär Olofsson.

"Dawn Of The Nine" will see official release on April 24th, 2015 via Nuclear Blast. The band also comments:

“The artwork represents the continuation of our previous album, which ended with 'The Great Battle of Odalheim.' The battle took place at Uppsala fields in Sweden, and you can clearly see the 'kings graves' at the cover art work which is present at Uppsala also in the future. You can also see the bombed out church in the far distance. Then off course, you see the place of Blot in the front and the rune stone with the runic symbol of courage of the new dawn.”

1. A New Day Will Rise
2. They Came To Die
3. Defenders Of Midgard
4. Where Is Your God Now?

6. Let The Hammer Fly

Unleashed Finishes New Album

Swedish Viking death metal outfit Unleashed just finished recording the follow-up to the "Odalheim" album. The title of the album is still a secret but according to Nuclear Blast, fans should be prepared for another classic record.

The forthcoming release was recorded by producer and guitar player Fredrik Folkare in his own Chrome Studios in Stockholm, Sweden. 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.”

Nuclear Blast also comments: "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."

Dew-Scented Confirmed For Summer Breeze

This year's Summer Breeze festival will be taking place from August 16th - 18th, with full details available at the festival's website here. The organizers of Summer Breeze have now issued the following announcement about confirming new bands:

"Since the release of their amazing breakthrough album 'Inwards', Dew-Scented have been at the forefront of European thrash metal. Since then, the cool bunch led by frontman Leif Jensen have been producing fantastic albums full of unstoppable riff power and overwhelming intensity at nicely regular intervals, cementing the band's excellent reputation time and again. In 2012, Dew-Scented aim at kick-starting their career with an entirely new line-up – with the exception of band boss Leif – and the fantastic new album 'Icarus', and are gearing up to shatter the Summer Breeze Open Air into small pieces. We are stoked to welcome the indestructible machine called Dew-Scented at our festival once more. Get thrashed!

"When Agrypnie played the Summer Breeze festival in 2008 for the first and only time so far, they were booked as consolation for all those who were mourning the recent disbanding of Nocte Obducta. Four years, one studio album and one EP later, the Hessians have made a career for themselves, having now reached the same level as the aforementioned group. Their new studio album is still being recorded as we speak, but their last EP 'Asche' was already an announcement for big things to come in the realm of post black metal. Expressive, multi-faceted, melancholic, dynamic – all these attributes fit Agrypnie like a glove and are underlined by the fact that their songs don't ever become predictable or interchangable. One of the most exciting bands our scene has to offer nowadays."

Unleashed Posts Lyric Video Online

Unleashed has posted a lyric video online for the song "Rise of the Maya Warriors," which is taken from the upcoming album "Odalheim." Check out the clip below. Bassist/vocalist Johnny Hedlund had this to say about the song:

"After years of struggle and toil against the armies of White Christ, the Midgard Warriors went across the open sea to gather the battalions there, and to build an army big enough to fight in the final stand. At the end of the (Vinland) North American journey, the Midgard Warriors and their growing armies traveled through the Sierra Madre and into Central America to meet with the Toltecs, Olmecs, Aztecs and others.

"It seemed they had all joined forces to build a rebellion against White Christ. They were now known as the Maya Warriors. We joined for Blot and Celebrations to our common task and for life long freindship. We had now grown to be a very respectful army of warriors that set off to the European continent again..."

"Odalheim" is due out in North America on April 24th and Europe on April 20th. More...
