Swedish modern metal act The Unguided teamed up with Metal Underground.com to bring you the lyric video for the new single "Legendary." The song is taken from the new album "And The Battle Royal" coming on November 10th via Napalm Records. Pre-order the album now at this location.

The album features new frontman/guitatist Jonathan Thorpenberg (Faithful Darkness/Ruined Soul) who takes over for the departed Roland Johannsson.

With a sense for overwhelming hooklines and sweet sentiments, the creamy guitars celebrate themselves on "And The Battle Royal." In terms of self-fulfilling songwriting both vocalists, Richard Sjunnesson and Jonathan Thorpenberg build up a perfect symbiosis of brutal shouts and huge melodies! Stompy Industrial is gilded in heavy-handed synthesizers as a battle trophy.

Richard Sjunnesson commented: ""Instrumentally 'Legendary' was among the first batch of songs written for the album. We did however not select it for the "Brotherhood" EP, thus it became a bit of an underdog track during the entire process. But as everything came together and the mix of the album eventually showed up there was no denying this was one insanely hooky and accessible track, thus the fate of this song turned from a filler to a potential single. The word "Legendary" sung in the chorus, with its impressive vocal harmonies, might very well be one of my favorite moments of the album. The melodies are simply too hard to resist! Lyrically it's a conceptual track and is dealing with the past trilogy of albums and their achievements in retrospective. There's perfect vocal synergy and really catchy instrumental work. In regards to all this; it couldn't make me happier than to present it as the first song out from 'And The Battle Royale.'"

The track listing for the album is:

1. Death's Sting
2. The Heartbleed Bug
3. Legendary
4. Dark Metamorphosis
5. A Link to the Past
6. Anchor Stone (of the World)
7. Manipulate Fear
8. Force of Nature
9. King's Fall
10. Nighttaker (Bonus Track)
