The legendary Swedish trailblazers UNLEASHED just released the second song ‘Defenders Of Midgard’ from their upcoming
studio album “Dawn Of The Nine” , which will be released April 24th via Nuclear Blast.
Check out the new lyric video here:
Mastermind Johnny about the meaning of the song:
“As time passed, the Midgard Warriors prepared for life in this new situation. A time to heal and prepare for what is about to come. With the wisdom from their past, and their current strength
and determination, the time has come to rise and defend what is rightfully ours.
The Althing initiated a campaign to hunt down all that is left of White Christ’s rule in Svithiod, and to reinstate the Hammer and the Rule of Thor.”
Tracklist of “Dawn Of The Nine”:
1. A New Day Will Rise
2. They Came To Die
3. Defenders Of Midgard
4. Where Is Your God Now?
5. The Bolt Thrower
6. Let The Hammer Fly
7. Where Churches Once Burned
8. Land Of The Thousand Lakes
9. Dawn Of The Nine
10. Welcome The Son Of Thor!
The forthcoming release was recorded by producer and guitar player Fredrik Folkare in his own Chrome Studios in Stockholm, Sweden.
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.
