Unleashed – Where No Life Dwells Vinyl Reissue

Unleashed vinyl reissue

Unleashed‘s debut and most coherent album, Where No Life Dwells, is being reissued by Century Media Records.

Fans will be able to purchase Where No Life Dwells and experience Unleashed’s blend of NWOBHM and crusty Swedish death metal in a dual format package conveniently containing both the LP and the remastered (more louder) CD from 2001.

Back in the late 80’s, a Swedish underground death metal band named Nihilist turned into the breeding ground from which two big players of the genre emerged: Entombed and UNLEASHED. Together with Grave and Dismember (R.I.P.), these bands are crucial for turning the punkish Scandinavian death metal sound into a global phenomenon, defining and refining its stylistics, and making it a successful genre to the very day. Parallel to records by Asphyx, Tiamat, Grave, and Morgoth, UNLEASHED’s debut album Where No Life Dwells was one of many all-time-classics of death metal released in 1991 via Century Media Records, and celebrates its 25th anniversary in 2016.

This is a perfect opportunity to bring back this timeless and gloomy masterpiece as stunning vinyl edition offering new fans the chance to discover a true classic. Featuring a re-creation of the original sleeve design, top notch vinyl mastering by Patrick W. Engel / Temple Of Disharmony (Possessed, Iced Earth, Paradise Lost & many more) as well as attractive bonuses such as a poster and CD version with seven additional tracks recorded in 1990 (taken from the 2001 CD re-issue), Where No Life Dwells remains a landmark album by the long-running Swedes. Enjoy an utterly dark milestone of death metal!

Where No Life Dwells is available in the following limitations:
– black LP+CD & Poster – not limited, available worldwide

All maniacal collectors please take note that due to the fact the original silver sleeve was harder to re-create than expected, there are 150-200 units across all colours circulating which lack this silver effect. Call yourselves lucky if you have one as these are the rarest vinyls out there.

    Curious as to how the vinyl sounds. If it’s sourced from the original or just another remastered CD. Gettin real tired of all these remasters, they make no damn sense and I don’t have the money to blow on originals.

  2. bung butter says:

    So does the vinyl have the remastered sound as well?

  3. Who knows. They can print the tape or even the original CD to wax and have it sound fine. The original CD will always sound better anyway. Century Media’s LP reissues tend to be behind Metal Blade and Earache in sound quality though. Still it’s Unleashed and there is not a lot going on anyway.

    1. Marc Defranco says:

      Turns out an original CD for this album does not cost much. Probably better to just purchase that.

    Already bought the cd 10 years ago.
