The guest for this episode is Richard Sjunnesson, vocalist of the Swedish melodic death metal band The Unguided, and they just released their new full-length album Father Shadow via Napalm Records. We get into how the band functions, fine tuning their method of operation of writing and recording the new album after a history of lineup changes and The Unguided being birthed out of Richard and Roger Sjunnesson’s previous band Sonic Syndicate. With Father Shadow, The Unguided go back to their harder roots blurring the lines between a melodic death metal and metalcore sound. And for a treat to their old fans, they even did cover versions of their own classic Sonic Syndicate tracks “Jailbreak”, “Denied” and “Jack of Diamonds”.
