Sadly former guitarist and singer Roland Johannsson has decided to leave THE UNGUIDED, but with new frontman Jonathan Thorpenberg THE UNGUIDED have found the perfect replacement! After having released a very well received 2-track EP in December of last year, it’s time to get ready for the full-length studio album! Please welcome “And The Battle Royale” – scheduled for a worldwide November 10th 2017 release via Napalm Records!
Richard Sjunnesson states:
“We’ve without doubt sacrificed our five souls into this one. Everyone knew it would be a career defining record after the departure of our highly acclaimed brother and we had no intensions to disappoint our fans nor ourselves writing and record this dynamic monster with innovative producer Dino Medanhodzic. Everyone indeed brought their absolute A-game on this record and Jonathan over performed in every possible way whilst also bringing something completely new to the table. A table which much urgently needed it I’d say. Come November and the battle royale will make or break you!”

In terms of excellent songwriting, both vocalists, Richard Sjunnesson and new addition Jonathan Thorpenberg, are building up a perfect symbiosis of brutal shouts and huge melodies! Stomping Industrial is gilded in heavy-handed synthesizers as a battle trophy. “And The Battle Royale” is a must-have for all those who value pure harshness with a good portion of sex appeal!
