                A rest is as good as a change… or something like that; after an 11 year initial break, Unanimated came back, dropped an album in 2009 and then promptly stopped releasing anything until an EP in 2018. Thankfully though, Unanimated are back with ‘Victory in Blood’, their latest studio album.

                Unanimated must be galvanised because even after all this time away, the band show no signs of being tarnished, corroded or of degradation because the band have delivered an excellent album of melodic death metal that has been wonderfully spliced together with black metal to create a beast. ‘The Devil Rides Out’, ‘Scepter of Vengeance’ and ‘Seven Mouths of Madness’ all drive along with the power of fellow Swedes such as Dissection, Necrophobic and Sacramentum with their sweeping melodies that float above barrages of blast beats and thrashing guitars trading off with the harsh vocals of Micke Broberg who steers the Unanimated ship forward.

                ‘Victory in Blood’ is an album which is more than decent, it may not have anything that we haven’t already heard before, but Unanimated deliver it will and with some real quality. It is fantastic to have this band back at the forefront of melodic death/black metal and hopefully, this is the start of a brand new chapter in the bands history and they won’t leave it too long before returning with another album.
