Shortly before Swedish death metal legends Unleashed release their new studio album, No Sign of Life, the Einherjar legions of Asgard release their third single, You Are the Warrior!, talking about struggles in the life of a true warrior. This is another musical weapon in trademark Unleashed fashion – true old school death metal, transferring Viking values into modernity.
The new single is accompanied by an official performance video transforming the intensity and force of the song and the story behind it. The visual makes you dive deep into the song and transforms the strength of an Unleashed live show.
Johnny Hedlund on the story behind You Are the Warrior!: ”In the battle of life there will be moments, for the Warrior, when the whole world seems to be against you. When pain and suffering is at its peak and everything is pitch black. This is the time to recall the reason for the struggle, and to remember those before you, their resolve and will of steel. You aim for the most noble deed of all and strive toward greatness, the highest of all ideals. That…is the call to Odin
As you sail into the great unknown of life, the great adventure, there will be dark clouds on the horizon, and know that sooner or later the winds will die down, and YOU will need to ROW.
That…is the hour of the Midgard Warrior
It is then your time to bear the axe of responsibility, and the shield of protection for those who cannot protect themselves.
Your forefathers’ battle is over, this is now yours!
You are the Warrior! And You FIGHT!”
