Swedish death metal act Unleashed will issue their 12th album on April 24.
Nuclear Blast will release Dawn of the Nine; the cover art for the disc accompanies this post and was worked on by Pär Olofsson.
The follow-up to Odalheim was once again produced by the band’s guitarist, Fredrik Folkare, at his Chrome Studios in Stockholm.
Says 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.”
The album will feature 10 tracks, including “They Came To Die,” “The Bolt Thrower,” “Where Churches Once Burned,” and “Welcome The Son of Thor!”
