They are back! After nine years in vigilant slumber the mighty UNANIMATED, originators of the infamous Swedish melodic death/black metal sound, returned with four brand new tracks featured on their EP “Annihilation” (2018). It continued the path that UNANIMATED had chosen with their latest studio album “In The Light Of Darkness” (2009). Nothing but evil, blasphemy and darkness clad in wicked riffs, haunting melodies and grimmest vocals.
Formed in 1988 in Stockholm, Sweden, UNANIMATED were amongst the first bands to entwine Nordic death metal with melodic lead guitars and black metal atmosphere. The debut album “In The Forest Of The Dreaming Dead” (1993) and especially the second album “Ancient God Of Evil” (1995) stirred up the international extreme metal scene, the latter one justly considered one of the most influential and best albums of the Swedish melodic death/black genre until this very day. It took UNANIMATED fifteen years to return with their third opus, “In The Light Of Darkness”, showcasing the band in top form. In contrast to the usual reunion album approach of many bands simply trying to revive the sound they were famous for, UNANIMATED further developed their sound towards a more evil and harsh direction by adding additional black metal elements, musically and visually, to the band’s style. A new studio album and follow-up to 2018’s “Annihilation” EP is in the works and supposed to come out by the end of 2019.
