Unleashed first made their mark on the world with their first album, Where No Life Dwells, in June of 1991. Maintaining a strong line-up with the eventual addition of Fredrik on guitar, the sturdy Swedish quartet went on to release what amounted to nearly an album per year, following up their deadly debut with Shadows In The Deep in June of 1992, Across The Open Sea in October of 1993, Live In Vienna in February of 1994, and Victory in March 1995. The stream of yearly releases continued with Eastern Blood Hail To Poland (1996) and Warrior (1997) until a break and a return with < I>Hell's Unleashed (2002) and Sworn Allegiance (2004).
Another proud tradition of Unleashed is their dedication to their Nordic heritage, something which Johnny has kept alive in lyrical tales such as The Defender and Precious Land, each of which seek to keep the strength and honor of the Viking bloodline intact. With a varied mix of songs that run from a slow, churning crush (Hail The New Age), to an adrenal rush (Scream Forth Aggression).
