Fans of the Swedish death metal legends UNLEASHED recently submitted questions for the band via the Nuclear Blast Europe Facebook page.
Video footage of UNLEASHED frontman Johnny Hedlund answering the questions at this year’s edition of the Summer Breeze festival, which took place August 16-18 in Dinkelsbühl, Germany, can be seen below.
UNLEASHED‘s new album, “Odalheim”, was released in April via Nuclear Blast Records. The CD was produced by Fredrik Folkare and recorded in at Chrome Studios in Sweden.
With “Odalheim”, UNLEASHED not only presents the follow-up to “As Yggdrasil Trembles” in the year 2012, but also continues telling its post-doomsday story, embedded into the Norse mythology.
After the mighty world tree Yggdrasil had trembled and rung in the end of the world, Fimbul winter followed: Three years of darkness and coldness, during which Mother Nature took back what was rightfully hers. This caused the end of life as we know it. Ragnarök. But the warriors who’ve survived will build a new world out of the old one’s ashes. Right here, the story of “Odalheim” begins.
Commented Hedlund: “The artwork is made by Sebastian Ramstedt, just like our previous three albums. It shows the new world ‘Odalheim’ at the break of dawn at Birka shores, and just before the attack of White Christ. The concept of the album is taken from the book by the same name.”
UNLEASHED‘s current lineup:
Johnny Hedlund: Bass, Vocals
Tomas Måsgard: Guitar
Fredrik Folkare: Guitar
Anders Schultz: Drums
