Mastermind Johnny adds:
“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.”

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.
