Unleashed’s New Single Ponders “Where Can You Flee?”
Unleashed are the rare metal band that continue to get better and better as they age. Given the band’s 30+ year history and important role in the early death metal scene I’m sure there are a whole lot of folks who will disagree, but for me, where my own musical tastes have been the last several years, every time Unleashed release something new I dig it even more than whatever came before it. They’ve also had the same lineup since 1995 and only one member swap from the four albums that came before. How rare is that? Consistency is surely a factor in the band’s continued high-quality output.
The band’s latest single, “Where Can You Flee?,” just dropped, and here’s vocalist/bassist Johnny Hedlund explaining it:
“The Midgard Warriors will never forget nor forgive, the atrocities that occured in Svithiod as the armies of White Christ burned village after village, raped and killed women and children on their way as they fled. Now, as the once so holy city of Jorsala has fallen, the Midgard Warriors pressed on in persecution of those responsible, and the hunt continues into the great Sinai peninsula. Whatever sacred mission lay behind it all, the Midgard Warriors are determined to find the answers. So ‘Where can you flee?’ Where can you go?”
Check out “Where Can You Flee?” below as well as the previously released single, “The King Lost His Crown.” No Sign of Life comes out on November 12 via Napalm Records; pre-order here.
