Staff review by

It's Hard to make a good album after an almost perfect one such as Shadows In The Deep, in 1993 Unleashed released Across The Open Sea, a good album with nice songs, weird lyrics and great vocals.

Axel Hermann is again in charge of the artwork (very interesting by the way), the album cover shows a Viking ship, overture of an album full of Scandinavian history and generals fighting in Viking Northern lands, now this is not precisely a Viking metal band, in fact the music and execution is Death Metal, the only thing that changes are the lyrics which by the way are again written by Hedlund.
