Unleashed - Midvinterblot
The next review is an urgent one, because the album was released one month ago. A little hurry in life isn’t bad, I thought when subscribing for the album. The reason I wanted this one is because Unleashed have made a great impression on me when they played live, and I am quite fond of their albums as well. The music is just as original as Pamela Andersson's left breast, but that doesn't matter to me. Their newest album Midvinterblot is pure Unleashed!
 
The album starts out quite brutal sounding with the track ‘Blood Of Lies’ with great breaks and interesting sound. For a fan it is impossible to not recognize this instantly as Unleashed, when you are familiar with their previous material. Although there are a few new elements, it’s still old quality, the whole album sounds quite predictable, but then I can’t help liking it all too much. Especially the track ‘In Victory Or Defeat’ is very recommendable. In the track ‘We Must Join With Him’ ‘Him’ refers to Sauron, the lord of the dark.
 
Definitely my favorite track is the title track ‘Midvinterblot’ with the cool vocals and the addicting guitar riffs. There are several damn good tracks on this record, but nonetheless the album has some filling tracks, because 15 tracks which all sound the same after 8 tracks is definitely not original. The album is a great effort with excellent sound quality, interesting guitar solo’s and brutal grunting. Just the typical old school death metal that I so adore!
 
It’s Unleashed and it kicks ass, it’s not the best album of the year, but it’s really amusing. Fans can buy it blindly, but I guess that most fans already have their copy, since it’s been out for 1 month now. My conclusion is that the music is unoriginal as hell, but when you’re drunk and partying, you’ll scream for it!
