UNLEASHED To Release ‘Dawn Of The Nine’ Album In April; Cover Artwork, Track Listing Revealed

Reposted from Blabbermouth.net

Swedish death metallers UNLEASHED will release their twelfth full-length album, “Dawn Of The Nine”, on April 24 via Nuclear Blast. The cover artwork was created by Pär Olofsson (IMMORTAL, DEMONAZ, EXODUS) and can be seen below.

UNLEASHED‘s follow-up to 2012’s “Odalheim” was once again produced by the band’s guitarist, Fredrik Folkare, at his Chrome Studios in Stockholm.

Comments UNLEASHED frontman Johnny Hedlund: “The artwork represents the continuation of our previous album, which ended with ‘The Great Battle Of Odalheim’. The battle took place at Uppsala fields in Sweden, and you can clearly see the ‘kings graves’ at the cover artwork, which is present at Uppsala also in the future. You can also see the bombed out church in the far distance. Then, of course, you see the place of Blot in the front and the rune stone with the runic symbol of courage of the new dawn.”

“Dawn Of The Nine” track listing:

01. A New Day Will Rise
02. They Came To Die
03. Defenders Of Midgard
04. Where Is Your God Now?
05. The Bolt Thrower
06. Let The Hammer Fly
07. Where Churches Once Burned
08. Land Of The Thousand Lakes
09. Dawn Of The Nine
10. Welcome The Son Of Thor!

With “Odalheim”, UNLEASHED not only presented the follow-up to “As Yggdrasil Trembles” in the year 2012, but also continued 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.

UNLEASHED‘s current lineup:

Johnny Hedlund: Bass, Vocals
Tomas Måsgard: Guitar
Fredrik Folkare: Guitar
Anders Schultz: Drums
