UNLEASHED FIGHT AGAINST THE WHITE CHRIST ON ODALHEIM TITLE TRACK
Swedish blackened death metallers Unleashed have been a band for so long (and with such a consistent lineup) that it’s easy for people to just brush them off with each successive album release. But while y’all have been ignoring “just another new Unleashed album” I’ve been rocking the fuck out; As Yggdrasil Trembles, released in 2010, might’ve been their best effort yet. Based on a quick listen of their forthcoming release Odalheim, I’d say Unleashed haven’t lost their way one bit.
Check out the title track from Odalheim below. Listen first and foremost for the music, ’cause it rocks, but pay attention to the lyrics too; like much of Unleashed’s past material, they’re historical-based lyrics that focus on the pre-Christian world, in this case the North and Central American armies uniting to fight against the armies of “White Christ.”
