Back in the late 80’s, a Swedish underground death metal band named Nihilist proved to be the breeding ground from which two of the most successful genre greats emerged: Entombed and Unleashed. Together with Grave and Dismember, these bands are crucial for turning the punkish Scandinavian death metal sound into a global phenomenon, defining and refining its stylistics, and making it a successful genre to this very day. Foundedin Stockholm in 1989 by vocalist and bassist Johnny Hedlund, Unleashed recorded demos "Revenge" and "Utter Dark", which got them a record deal with German label Century Media Records. In 1991, the band released their debut studio album, “Where No Life Dwells”, and toured with Morbid Angel in Europe and the United States. In 1992, Unleashed released their second studio album, “Shadows in the Deep”, including a cover version of Venom's "Countess Bathory". Their next studio albums were “Across the Open Sea” in 1993 and “Victory” in 1995, the latter being the last album which guitarist Fredrik Lindgren played on. He was replaced with Fredrik Folkare, who played guitar on the fifth Unleashed studio album “Warrior” in 1997. The band went on hiatus after 7–8 years of recording and touring. After reissues of the band's classics in 2002, the band released a new album called “Hell's Unleashed” in the same year, and they began to tour once again. In 2004, Unleashed released their seventh studio album, “Sworn Allegiance”. In October 2006, the band released their eighth studio album, “Midvinterblot”. Unleashed toured Europe in November 2006 as part of the Masters of Death tour, with Grave, Dismember, and Entombed. On February and March 2007, they headlined a North American tour with Krisiun and Belphegor. June 2008 saw the release of their ninth studio album entitled “Hammer Battalion”. On July 24, 2009 Unleashed signed a contract with German label Nuclear Blast Records for the release of their tenth album entitled “As Yggdrasil Trembles”. The band's 11th studio album “Odalheim” was released also on Nuclear Blast Records in April 2012, and their twelfth record “Dawn of the Nine” was released April 24, 2015. After signing with Austrian label Napalm Records, Unleashed released their thirteenth album “The Hunt for White Christ” in 2018.
