Often cited as an influence on the black metal movement due to their profoundly "viking" imagery and subject matter, Unleashed in fact have very little to do with said movement musically. This is straight-up death metal done right, VERY Swedish and VERY crunchy. Simple, straightforward, and crushing. A classic.
If you'd like to learn how to emulate the "Swedish death metal" guitar tone (a la Unleashed), go back and read Peter's post about it here. And then go kill a Christian.
PS: On behalf of the cast and crew here at I.C., I'd like to congratulate our adoring public on supplying us with our 50,000th hit. It's hard to believe that I've actually clicked my 'Refresh' button THAT MANY times!
