When it comes to Swedish Death Metal in its traditional Stockholm-Style and Death Metal in general, there is one band you HAVE TO MENTION: UNLEASHED!
Formed back in 1989 by Johnny Hedlund, UNLEASHED have been delivering supreme death metal from day one!
After recording two demos the band released their legendary debut album Where No Life Dwellsand toured Europe and the US with Morbid Angel. From this point UNLEASHED has become one of the biggest names in death metal worldwide. Dealing with Viking traditions and values they stepped up their game and became extreme metal trendsetters, musically and lyrically. UNLEASHED have toured the world with bands like Grave, Dismember, Entombed, Krisiun or Belphegor and became true masters of Death.
Now UNLEASHED rage on with their crucial crusade by signing with Napalm Records!
Johnny Hedlundon the signing:
“Warriors! Unleashed are proud to announce that we have signed a new recording deal with Napalm Records! Our 13th album is scheduled for recording in Chrome studios, in May 2018. We are very much looking forward to this new cooperation on our journey into the bands 30th anniversary (in 2019). Hail Odin!”

Release Lyric Video For The Aftermath
Nordic symphonic metal masters MIDNATTSOL have just released the official lyric video for the title track of their upcoming new album “The Aftermath” which will be released on May 25th via Napalm Records.
MIDNATTSOL now has true full sister power featuring Liv Kristine and Carmen Elise! The name „Espenæs“ rightfully makes a lot of people swoon – as both sisters have been a vital part of a magnitude of gothic / symphonic / folk metal milestones.
Until this point a supergroup involving both sisters sharing microphone duties was only the stuff only dreams were made of. Now it is a reality!
The band comments on the track:
“As a huge thank you for waiting for us all these years, here is another song for you before the release of our new album! It contains a message that we want to reach out with; What do you think it is?”
“The Aftermath” relies much more heavily on folk influences lending atmospheric density to the melancholic symphonic metal compositions. A sumptuous and sensual affair and a shimmering highlight in the discography of this German / Norwegian team!

BEYOND THE BLACK
Sign To Napalm Records Worldwide
Welcome to the Napalm Records Family!
Since their foundation in 2014 BEYOND THE BLACK have become an integral part of the German Symphonic Metal landscape in addition to their unrivaled talent and absolute enthusiasm! Now with NAPALM RECORDS the band have found a strong partner and have signed worldwide with the label (excl. GSA)
Jennifer Haben on the signing with Napalm Records:
„We are really looking forward to the collaboration! With Napalm and Airforce1 we got exactly the right team to bring the new album to international heights and to tear down as much as possible!“
The success of BEYOND THE BLACK speaks for itself. The debut „Songs Of Love And Death“ (2015, Airforce1 Records) immediately hit #12 on the German album charts. Only one year later with the release of „Lost In Forever“ (2016), the band stormed the charts again and a top 5 ranking catapulted them even further forwards!
BEYOND THE BLACK has played countless shows in Germany and the near foreign countries, with the British heavy metal legends SAXON, one of Germany’s most successful metal bands POWERWOLF and the Dutch symphonic metal masters EPICA.
Additionally the band were tapped to open for the SCORPIONS on their 50th anniversary tour. The band has also made festival appearances including Wacken Open Air Festival, Summer Breeze or Wave-Gotik-Meeting.
This year the studio work continues at full throttle! More info and details on the upcoming album will be unveiled soon!
