Century Media Reissues All Three Unanimated Albums

Century Media Records has announced its intention to re-issue all three full length records from Swedish death metal veterans Unanimated.

On May 15th the label plans to release the latter two albums, Ancient God of Evil (1995) and In the Light of Darkness (2009), with the classic In The Forest of the Dreaming Dead (1993) to be announced in the future.

Ancient God Of Evil has been fully remastered from the original DAT tape by legendary producer Dan Swanö for its twenty-fifth anniversary reissue with a new layout by Erik Danielsson (Watain), a long time friend of the band.

Both albums will be issued on 180 grain gatefold vinyl treatment with enhanced and updated layouts including extensive liner notes based on an in-depth interview with Richard Cabeza conducted by renowned journalist Chris Dick (Decibel Magazine) divided into three parts, one per album.

Ancient God Of Evil will be available in the following additional vinyl colors:

  • Transparent Red (ltd. to 100) via cmdistro.de
  • White (ltd. to 200) via cmdistro.de & various shops
  • Silver (ltd. to 200) via Cudgel

In The Light Of Darkness will be available in the following additional vinyl colors:

  • Transparent Red (ltd. to 100) via cmdistro.de
  • Lilac (ltd. to 200) via cmdistro.de & various shops
  • Gold (ltd. to 200) via Cudgel

Bassist Richard Cabeza explained his outlook:

We are very excited to finally be able to re-issue our three prior studio albums…And FINALLY see an official vinyl release of Ancient God of Evil! It’s with great pleasure to see these old hymns of darkness and death rise from the undead once again to haunt the light! With new layout and sound that justifies the past, the re-issues of these vinyls and CDs is definitely dedicated to our loyal fans! Beware…The firestorm is coming!

Brett’s note: Only In The Forest of the Dreaming Dead is really essential. Ancient God of Evil rode the rising melodic underground metal trend straight into heavy metal; we can blame Dissection for this, since 1993-2003 metal labels basically saw this band as the only true metal option to imitate. In the Light of Darkness continues in this vein and is perfectly well-executed, just without spirit, therefore kind of boring. See for yourself with the attached sound-videos.
