You know, buying an Unleashed album is kind of like buying an AC/DC album. You know what you’re going to get as soon as you see it. Unleashed is Unleashed. Nothing more, nothing less. You’re going to get Thrashy Swedish Death Metal with riffs that make you bang your head. You’re going to get lyrics that you can sing along to when the chorus part hits. It’s going to be heavy, the songs are going to be under four minutes long (except for one, but you’re not going to notice nine seconds) and you’re going to fucking like it. It doesn’t take a degree in rocket science to figure out what Johnny Hedlund and the gang are up to. Sworn Allegiance kicks ass in all the right places and has done a great job of keeping me entertained. If you’re looking for progression, technical excellence or groundbreaking originality, go buy the new Uli Roth album instead - it has all that and more. If you’re looking for an album that will have your head banging from the first song to the last, Sworn Allegiance does that in spades.
