Unanimated's debut album In The Forest Of The Dreaming Dead set the tone for their follow-up masterpiece, Ancient God Of Evil. Both albums contain melody, raw production, and excellent musicianship. That being said, Ancient God Of Evil surpasses anything the band have released with its catchy riffs and impaling guitar solos, not to mention a few other elements that were perfected since their debut.

It's a good album but not a classic yet. I can hear their intention - Play it safe !

Being not a fan of raw production, but a huge fan of the melodeath genre I consider this as one of the most historic and important albums. The highlights are:
01. Life Demise
02. Eye Of The Greyhound
03. Oceans Of Time
05. Mireille
07. Ruins

+0.9

But if you ask me:

01. Life Demise
02. Oceans Of Time
03. the rest of this f*&%ing masterpiece

For those who think Dark Tranquillity and In Flames invented Melodeath and for those praising Dissection as the first band ever playing melodic Black/Death: Unanimated, formed in 1988, is the real, higly influencial, most overlooked, genre-defining shit and this is their magnum opus.

This easily tops everything (!) IF and DT ever wrote. Period.

How is it even possible that I have not been aware of these guys just until a couple of days ago when you mentioned them to me?!
Very good early melodeath indeed. Can hear a lot of Dissection in this one.
That is what I love about this music.
I am counting some 25 years in Metal as of now.
And every other day or so I discover something mind-blowing that I have completely overlooked -- or successfully ignored -- over all the years.

Very true this.
I have given this album probably about 12-15 spins in recent days.
Here are my ratings:
Life demise 8.9
Oceans of time 8.9
Mireille 8.5
Eye of the greyhound 8.4
Die alone 8.4
Dead calm 8.3
Ruins 8.3
The depths of a black sea 8.2
Dying emotions domain 8.2

Overall I have an 8.4 for this album.
That suffices to enter my all-time top 222 at a solid rank.
I am stunned to discover such a great album only now, after having blatantly ignored it for so many years.
