Unleashed Extend Viking Death Metal Legacy With New Song + 14th Album

Viking/death metal mainstays Unleashed have set No Sign of Life as the title of their 14th album and first since 2018’s The Hunt for White Christ. The first sampling of this addition to the Swedish band’s legacy comes by way of a lyric video for the opening track, “The King Lost His Crown.”

The new record appears to pick up where Unleashed last left off thematically, continuing the original epic concept authored by vocalist/bassist Johnny Hedlund, which has stretched across every album dating back to 2010’s As Yggdrasil Trembles.

“In the aftermath of the battle of Jorsala, where the Midgard Warriors stood victorious, White Christ is now being hunted from the once so holy city. The enemy flees towards the desert, and his armies are about to lose faith in their leader. It seems that the king lost his crown,” said Hedlund of the No Sign of Life opener.

“The King Lost His Crown” is trademark Unleashed, barreling ahead with simplistic but devastatingly effective rhythmic riffs and adrenalized blast beats beneath wicked melodies, all of which drive the mood of this next piece of the story of the Odalheim world and its Midgard warriors.

“It is our hope that our warriors all over the world will enjoy the new album just like they have our previous ones. We have, as always, tried to stick to our roots while testing our steel to develop the genre of Viking Death Metal even further,” added Unleashed as a collective.

Listen to “The King Lost His Crown” toward the bottom of the page where you’ll also find the artwork and track listing for No Sign of Life, which comes out Nov. 12 on Napalm Records.

Unleashed, “The King Lost His Crown” Lyrics

He fled like a rat
From all responsibility
Demanding that you still follow
The almighty creed

Sanctified
You kneel and bow
Thought control
Your point of view is not allowed

The king lost his crown
Upon this holy ground
The king lost his crown
All your hopes and visions

They all died today
Followed a corrupt Messiah
Holding you down but still you pray

Sanctified
You kneel and bow
Thought control
Your point of view is not allowed

The king lost his crown
Upon this holy ground
The king lost his crown

All that remains
An army of mice
Fleeing towards the desert
Like human lice
Like human lice

He fled like a rat
From all responsibility
Demanding that you still follow
The almighty creed

Sanctified
You kneel and bow
Thought control
Your point of view is not allowed

The king lost his crown
Upon this holy ground
The king lost his crown
