When it comes to Swedish Death Metal the traditional Stockholm way and death metal per se, there is one band you have to mention: Unleashed! Formed back in 1989 by vocalist / bass player Johnny Hedlund, Unleashed have been delivering supreme death metal from day one.

Dealing with Viking traditions and values, they stepped up their game and became extreme metal pioneers, musically and lyrically, inspiring legions of other bands. The Hunt for White Christ is the fourth album of the band dealing with the story line of the World of Odalheim and their Midgard warriors – a story of Johnny Hedlund himself, a story of the past, present and future of the Viking traditions and values.

The album was recorded in Chrome Studios 2018 and does not simply mark the Swedes` 13th full-length album: it is the most important step leading up to celebrating 30 years of Unleashed in 2019! And after three decades they have neither lost their bite nor their love for pure death metal mayhem: album opener ‘Lead us into War‘ breathes sheer aggression in co-junction with majestic undertones, followed by the blasting iciness of 'You Will Fall‘. Then there`s the fist-pumping glory of future live classic ‘The City Of Jorsala Shall Fall‘, the steamrolling title track – and the Hammer Battalion`s hearts beat faster and faster! For Odin – and for Unleashed, the unchallenged kings of supreme Swedish death metal! -Napalm Records.
