The legendary Swedish trailblazers UNLEASHED released a lyric video for the second song “Defenders Of Midgard” from their upcoming studio album. Dawn Of The Nine will be released in North America on May 4th Check out the lyric video for “Defenders Of Midgard” here: Mastermind Johnny about the meaning of the song: “As time passed, the Midgard Warriors prepared for life in this new situation. A time to heal and prepare for what is about to come. With the wisdom from their past, and their current strength and determination, the time has come to rise and defend what is rightfully ours. The Althing initiated a campaign to hunt down all that is left of White Christ’s rule in Svithiod, and to reinstate the hammer and the rule of Thor.” With their blend of melody and brutality, the warriors of UNLEASHED are credited as the founding fathers of the Viking death metal movement from their inception back in 1989. Twenty-six years later, they have managed to unite the spirit of the Viking tradition with their merciless riffs and epic choruses - melting uncompromising brutality with hymns to Odin. Dawn Of The Nine, UNLEASHED’s twelfth studio album, was recorded by producer and guitar player Fredrik Folkare in his own Chrome Studios in Stockholm, Sweden. The artwork album was created by Pär Olofsson (IMMORTAL, DEMONAZ, EXODUS).
