UNLEASHED: Official Lyric Video For New Song 'Defenders Of Midgard'
April 13, 2015
Swedish death metallers UNLEASHED will release their twelfth full-length album, "Dawn Of The Nine", on April 24 via Nuclear Blast. The cover artwork was created by Pär Olofsson (IMMORTAL, DEMONAZ, EXODUS) and can be seen below.
UNLEASHED's follow-up to 2012's "Odalheim" was once again produced by the band's guitarist, Fredrik Folkare, at his Chrome Studios in Stockholm.
The official lyric video for the song "Defenders Of Midgard" can be seen below.
Said UNLEASHED frontman Johnny Hedlund about "Defenders Of Midgard": "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."
The first single from "Dawn Of The Nine", "Where Is Your God Now?", was released digitally on February 27.
"Dawn Of The Nine" track listing:
01. A New Day Will Rise 02. They Came To Die 03. Defenders Of Midgard 04. Where Is Your God Now? 05. The Bolt Thrower 06. Let The Hammer Fly 07. Where Churches Once Burned 08. Land Of The Thousand Lakes 09. Dawn Of The Nine 10. Welcome The Son Of Thor!
Says Johnny Hedlund: "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 artwork, which is present at Uppsala also in the future. You can also see the bombed out church in the far distance. Then, of course, you see the place of Blot in the front and the rune stone with the runic symbol of courage of the new dawn."
UNLEASHED's current lineup:
Johnny Hedlund: Bass, Vocals Tomas Måsgard: Guitar Fredrik Folkare: Guitar Anders Schultz: Drums
