Review


This was Unleashed 5th CD, and the last one they released for almost 5 years afterwards. A lot of Unleashed fans hate it, and claim that it totally sucks. I personally don't think this is much worse than any of Unleashed's other albums. If there is anything to complain about, it's the veeeeerrry slight death rock sound that creeps in here and there, as on "Death Metal Victory" or the retarded "Hero Of The Land". But mostly this is the same stripped-down and basic Swedish DM sound Unleashed always played. There are some pretty good cuts, like "Hellfire" or "Born Deranged", and some not-so-good cuts like "Mediawhore" or "Your Pain My Gain". As usual, there are no really excellent songs, but no real dogs either.

This one isn't quite as good as "Victory", but the difference is so minor that we can tell the albums apart only under the closest scrutiny. All of Unleashed's albums are like that – they all sound more or less the same. Which on the one hand means they never progress, but on the other means they are always a reliable band for a decent Death Metal album. I think "Shadows In The Deep" was their best one, so if you want to start somewhere, start with that one. Otherwise this band is really just good for background music.
