"Midvinterblot" from Unleashed out now on CD/LP/MC!



Unleashed hits every cylinder possibly on “Midvinterblot”! To be hailed a classic by Viking Metal fans as well as Death Metal fans worldwide! First time on vinyl in 13 years!

The year is 2006 and Unleashed are doing better than ever! 17 years since their inception, and they would seem to have hit on every cylinder they possibly could with “Midvinterblot”. This is sure to be hailed a classic by Viking metal fans as well as Death Metal fans worldwide for years to come.

Instrumentally, this “Midvinterblot” finds Unleashed using their weapons (instruments) with highly-skilled precision. Some of the outstanding weapons in their arsenal are Johnny’s vocals - proving once again that enunciation in not a bad thing in Death Metal or Viking Metal.

Another thing that leads me to love this album is the leads as played by Fredrik. You see, the thing is, he doesn’t just play leads… he makes them sing, in his own way. Waiting eagerly for another great lead, all the while listening to great songs, is a very pleasurable experience!

Musically, this is Death Metal, plain and simple. This is the art of attacking the listener while providing some thought-provoking tunes. Instead of the typical “fuck Christ” we always hear, we get some logic behind the thoughts. The lyrics touch on honor, pride, tradition (Midvinterblot is about an old Scandinavian tradition).

This could be their best work ever, after those legendary first couple of albums. Killer Death Metal, from Sweden, full of variation and blessed with a killer sound. For people addicted to Swedish Death Metal this is a must.

For fans of: Grave, Dismember, Entombed, Bloodbath, Bolt Thrower
