Unleashed Drop New Lyric Video “The Hunt for White Christ”
Swedish death metal warriors Unleashed have just unveiled the title track from their upcoming album, The Hunt For White Christ. The record continues the story line written by bassist and vocalist Johnny Hedlund, the Viking tale of the World of Odalheim and their Midgard warriors. He explains the story behind the new song:
“After the despicable acts of terror against women and children in the South, and the devastation of the villages (as seen on the album cover), The Midgard Warriors decide to hunt down White Christ, all the way to Jorsala if need.”
Fuck Christ, amirite? While I can’t lie and say I’ve been particularly invested in this story line, I can say that “The Hunt For White Christ” is a powerful, driving death metal ballad that definitely paints the picture of battle and blood-lust — listen below. Unleashed bring the classic Swedish brutality back with full force in this record as they approach their 30th anniversary as a band. They’ve got a couple upcoming festival appearances listed below.
